Interconnects, Cable & Connectivity
The basic component to industrial automation is wiring. From a single conductor hook-up wire, motor drive (VFD) cable, communication protocol wiring, and connectors the industrial control environment has its own special needs. Electrical cabinets need hook-up wire, terminal blocks, DIN rail, industrial connectors, and wire management. Sensors and solenoids need M8, M12, or square DIN assemblies, along with distribution centers. Ethernet communications are becoming more prevalent on the shop floor, so RJ45 and M12-8 assemblies are available. And yes, even wireless applications require wires for final terminations.
