Title: VEHICLE WIRE HARNESS
Abstract:
Vehicular electrical system that provides power and communications to controllable vehicular devices includes an electrical bus having elongate wires, an electrical source connected to the bus, and control units each attached to one or more of the devices. Couplers couple transceivers to the bus to enable messages generated by the transceiver to be provided to the bus and messages on the bus to be retrieved by the transceiver using an identification protocol. Each coupler includes an annular magnetic unit arranged around the wires, and a coil wound around part of the magnetic unit and connected to a respective transceiver. Power and communications are provided to the devices from a power source and communications source coupled to the bus through the bus, the transceivers and the control units coupled to the transceivers to cause a change in operation of the devices based on messages on the bus.
