Thomas & Betts’ Line Prevents Water Ingress into Wire Harnesses
MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 5, 2012 – Harnessflex Specialty Conduit Systems from Thomas & Betts provide a comprehensive selection of flexible conduits and connector interfaces that protect critical electrical and electronic wiring assemblies in heavy-duty commercial vehicle applications, including bus, truck, agricultural vehicle and heavy machinery. The product line includes conduit, hinged fittings, connector interfaces and sealed fittings. Harnessflex Specialty Conduit System components, used individually or in combination, provide protection from not only moisture, but also mechanical abrasion and corrosive salts.
“By preventing water ingress into commercial vehicle electronic systems, we can help contain the manufacturer’s warranty costs,” said Tony Kolznak, product manager for Thomas & Betts. “Commercial vehicles, such as construction and agricultural vehicles, buses, and tractor trailers, are often subjected to water and moisture, so this level of protection, which includes the entire wire harness, increases the vehicle’s reliability.”
Combining a full range of slit and un-slit conduit, fittings and connectors, the Harnessflex Specialty Conduit Systems offer the largest range of hinged system components and connector interfaces within the industry. Custom connector interfaces are also developed jointly with leading connector manufacturers.
Thomas & Betts acquired the Harnessflex line in 2010 as part of its acquisition of the U.K.-based Cable Management Group Ltd. (CMG). Harnessflex is a leading supplier of flexible conduit and fitting systems used for routing and protection of electrical cables in wiring harnesses.
Thomas & Betts Corporation is a global leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of essential components used to manage the connection, distribution, transmission and reliability of electrical power in industrial, construction and utility applications. With a portfolio of more than 200,000 products marketed under more than 45 premium brand names, Thomas & Betts products are found wherever electricity is used. With headquarters in Memphis, Tenn., Thomas & Betts reported revenues of $2.3 billion and had approximately 9,400 employees in 2010.
