TE Connectivity (TE) offers material handling solutions for electromechanical and electronic components. Whether designing a prototype or retrofitting an existing system, TE's reliable, quick to install, and industry-proven innovative product solutions save on system maintenance costs and downtime.
What is Material Handling?
Material handling is the movement, protection, storage and
detection of materials throughout manufacturing, distribution,
consumption, and disposal processes. Managing the movement of packages, containers, or products at specified
speeds with a variety of controls and displays becoming increasingly
important to conserve both space and power, while safety and sensor
intelligence capabilities fulfill industry requirements for protection
and information. It encompasses a collection of
movement and processing equipment with the purpose of gathering,
analyzing, and communicating information supporting a number of key
business activities including:
The material handling industry is segmented into either complete turn-key systems or integrated systems, where a combination of devices are designed and packaged into one system. Integrated systems are typically designed by either in-house engineers or system integrators. TE offers a wide array of multi-medium interconnect and cable assemblies to solve material handling needs for material handling subsystems.
Measuring one-quarter the size of conventional RJ45 plugs,
Industrial Mini I/O connectors feature two points of contact for
increased reliability in high vibration environments and include
polarization to help prevent mismating. Available in both SMT and
through-hole, the design includes a latching system that helps protect
the plug from pull-out and eight individual circuits that accommodate
TE Connectivity's Dynamic Series is a broad product family that provides connector solutions ranging from signal level circuitry through power circuit connectivity in a ruggedized, industrialized package. The connector family is designed for use in control systems applications and is suitable for a wide range of applications requiring high density, signal and power applications. The Dynamic Series consists of wire-to-board, wire-to-panel and wire-to-wire connectors with diverse housings available to meet most applications. Standard crimp and spring clamp variations of parts are available.
The M8/M12 connector system for machine industrial automation and control applications provides a solution that safely and reliably helps to ensure communication in industrial environments. It provides a full solution that includes connectors, I/O modules and cable assemblies, plus supports higher bandwidth needs of up to 10Gbs.
