CATIA 3D Wire Harness Design (EHK)

Unique design of large scale electrical systems within the virtual product

The complexity of large-scale electrical systems requires a process-specific solution in order to design faster and ensure quality. In addition, the use of physical prototypes creates certain drawbacks such as high costs, inflexible modifications, and the late recognition of design errors.

CATIA 3D Wire Harness Design delivers a process-specific solution for designing physical wire harnesses. This solution is driven by logical specifications and is integrated with harness manufacturing. By delivering a realistic simulation for 3D wire harness packaging in an integrated environment, this powerful solution reduces design time and increases the overall quality of large-scale electrical systems. It also enriches the design through realistic deformation of flexible harnesses by taking into account environmental conditions like gravity as well as the physical non-linear behavior of the harness and its protections.
