Custom Cable Assemblies and Wire Harnesses
Cable assemblies are wires or cables that have been grouped together into a single unit, usually for transmitting power or informational signals. Assemblies help to organize several cables into an easier to install package, making it easier to replace and maintain.
Cable assemblies can include different cable configurations, as well as a wide range of sizes and colors. They are covered in appropriate shielding for their intended applications and fitted with connectors or socket arrangements.
Alpine Electronics has extensive cable assembly and wire harness experience including specially armored IP68 cables for extremely harsh environments. From our headquarters in San Jose, our expert staff can create any cable assembly or wire harness that meets your needs.

Cable Assemblies and Wire Harnesses Offer Unique AdvantagesCable assembly and wire harnesses both serve similar purposes but offer unique applications and configurations. One of the differences lies in differentiating between wires and cables. A wire is a strand of material that conducts electricity, while a cable is two or more wires that are often bounded or braided together.
Wire harnesses bundle cables and wires that are already protected by their own coverings. Cable assemblies, on the other hand, are made for more heavy-duty applications and are covered in intensive exterior product. They are designed to shield the interior wires and cables from heat, friction, moisture, abrasion, compression, and other hazards.
Wire harnesses are smaller in size and weight, making them naturally more flexible than cable assemblies. This makes them great for situations with limited space or transmitting signals over short distances. They can only be used indoors, however, because they are less durable.
Alpine Electronics Creates Cable Assemblies for Any ApplicationOur custom cable assemblies and wire harnesses can be used for virtually any application. Each assembly is individually bound and fitted with a connection that meets your needs. Our cable assemblies utilize connectors like Lemo, Redel, Amphenol, and Alden.
