Wire harness applications are used in nearly every conceivable household, commercial or industrial device - tools, equipment, machinery, hardware, household products - that transmits or relays electronic information or electrical power. The familiar harness is essential, if not an indispensable component in these devices. Wire harnesses are manufactured in various sizes and arrangements that relate to a device’s application and environmental requirements. These devices can be employed ...
During these difficult times with the COVID-19 virus affecting our lives, workplaces, and social interactions, I wanted to give you an update on “what’s going on at JEM Electronics.” JEM continues to take the necessary steps to ensure we protect the health and well-being of all our associates. Safety remains our top priority.
Wire harnesses are wire configurations bundled in either a thermoplastic or thermoset sheathing for the purpose of managing electrical systems of devices and to protect those systems from any environmental conditions the application may be subject to. The harness itself comprises an assembly of ties, tubing, straps, lacing, sleeves, multi-pair and multi-conductor cables, coaxes, and conduits that keep the wiring system organized efficiently.
There are as many varieties of wire and cable insulation as there are wires and cables. Insulation is an important non-conductive material that surrounds and protects the individual wires or cables that make up a cable assembly. Some wire insulation is produced to resist electric current in electrical applications. Other types of insulation are used in dielectric applications for radio frequency cables. Insulation further prevents current from contact with other conductors, resists ...
Producers and consumers alike should be aware of the difference between UL Listed vs UL Recognized tags that are found on products. That familiar UL tag or stamp certifies that product safety standards have been met. However, the different UL tags represent the degrees of testing that have been conducted on products and product parts.
In response to the worldwide outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), JEM Electronics has taken steps to maintain business continuity while protecting the health and well-being of our employees, customers and suppliers. Safety and health are our top priorities.
Wire harnesses are wire configurations for powering many different electrical devices. To manufacture, some wire harness assembly automation is possible, but other processes of production still rely on manual assembly. The combined process groups wires or cables into a unit that transmits electrical and electronic signals or electrical power that provides a single connection point.
Stranded wires are used in a variety of electrical and electronic applications ranging from durable goods in homes to automobile components under the dashboard to rugged military cable assemblies. Types of stranded wire can vary, but it is commonly found in cable assemblies, wire harnesses, and networking or used in circuit boards, electronic devices depending on the application.

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) are the international and American bodies, respectively, governing the standards for design, production, and distribution of electrical, electronic, and rated technologies collectively referred to as "electrotechnical" products. So, what is the difference between the two standards?
For years, the success of cable assembly manufacturers in the USA was eclipsed by cheap labor, mass production, and perceived lower costs that off-shore counterparts offered. The practice of offshoring the manufacturing of components to other continents like Asia resulted in many of these foreign-based cable assembly manufacturers to enjoy a period of sustained profits. But in time, such profits began to erode for a number of reasons. Higher wages combined with a decline in quality and ...
