Convert designs harness for Gernab sports carKent-based Convert Ltd, a leading manufacturer of cable looms and harnesses, has designed a rear-light cable harness
for a German automotive manufacturer’s new all-electric sports car.

The electrical engineering company recently completed pre-series development work on the cable harness for the LED lamp unit designed and manufactured by Wipac — a Buckingham-based design and manufacturing company that specialises in high-tech exterior LED lights for the prestige automotive market.

The next three years could see Convert manufacturing more than 60,000 rear-light cable harness for the new model. This would involve making 2 million crimp connections a year — containing cable equivalent to the length of 2,500 football pitches.

Convert managing director Dave Lord said ( : “We’re excited to have completed the pre-series development work. We’ve invested in a new Artos CR11 automatic crimping wire processor to support this project. It has doubled our capacity.”

Operating mainly in the automotive, public-transport, scientific and medical sectors, Convert manufactures wire cables and harnesses for car head and rear lights, passenger gates at railway stations, transmission and driveline systems, and a range of scientific equipment.
