Why Should You Choose Painless Performance Wire Harnesses?

Posted by Megan on May 5, 2016 1:39:00 PM

Universal chassis wire harnesses by Painless Performance are the easiest preassembled harnesses to install. All preassembled wire harnesses are not made equally. Just one installation with a Painless harness and you will never use an inferior harness again.  

Advantages of choosing Painless Performance wire harnesses

Less wires to route. During the final assembly of the harness, Painless groups the wires together based on the appropriate vehicle location. Depending on the application the average harness will have 15-18 groups of wires all wire-tied together. Instead of routing over 100 individual wires, you will only have to route the groupings saving you time and effort.

What is an IP rating and why is it important?

Posted by Megan on Mar 3, 2016 11:45:00 AM

The Ingress Protection (IP) rating system was established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), an organization for international standards and conformity assessment. The IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). A complete description of the IP ratings and associated tests is found in IEC Publication 529. Although these ratings were initially developed as a way to classify enclosures, they now provide a convenient, practical way to compare levels of sealing. Many electrical products have an Ingress Protection (IP) rating which identifies the environmental factors needing consideration prior to the product’s installation.
