Reliability is an emerging scientific discipline in recent years, and it runs through all technical fields. The safety of automotive wiring harness design is critical to the entire automotive electronic system. The reliability of wiring harness design is a reflection of safety. The reliability viewpoint of wire harness design is stated below.
Reliability Analysis of Line Terminals and Connectors
As an important part of the automotive wiring harness, line terminals and connectors are the main components that determine the reliability of the wiring harness system, and play a vital role in the wiring system. Among the many problems that occur in wiring harnesses, terminals and connectors account for a large part. For example, the terminal is aging, and the connector parts have fallen off, loosened, damaged, etc. due to a long time. These problems may be a small detail in normal times, but if they are placed in the entire wire harness safety system, it will lead to a reduction in the safety and reliability of the wire harness.
Therefore, in the usual wiring harness design, certain measures must be taken to ensure the reliability of the wiring harness design. For example, in the process of installation, choose the appropriate connectors and plug-ins, etc.; secondly, pay attention to their material issues; the operating temperature and the maximum allowable current of the terminals and connectors; pay attention to the working environment and temperature; at the same time It is necessary to avoid some corrosive gases or liquids from affecting the terminals and connectors, thereby destroying the reliability of the entire electronic system.
