Wire Harness Assembly

High Quality Wire Harnesses are the backbone of electro mechanical systems. PCA is capable of supplying an infinite number of possiblilites combining wires, connectors, terminals, splices, and protective coverings. Our highly skilled electrical, mechanical, and industrial engineering staff can work with you to develop the right harness for your needs. During harness development, we focus on proper component selection, making sure the correct properties of sealing, amperage, and form factor are met, we also work to package and affix fasteners to the harness so installation time at the assembly line can be minimized.  All harnesses undergo one hundred percent continuity testing to ensure they are wired correctly as well as visual checks to ensure fuses, relays, coverings, etc have been properly applied.
