Among the additions to Tripp Lite’s expanded industrial cabling and connectivity line-up are: Cat5e/Cat6 patch cables rated to IP67 for dust and moisture resistance; IP67-rated 4K HDMI cables with Ethernet support; an IP67-rated junction box; USB hubs with optional DIN-rail mounting; and a USB hub with USB-C ports and USB 3.1 Gen 2 transfer speeds up to 10 Gbps.
Sample applications for Tripp Lite’s expanded industrial cables and connectivity line, according to the manufacturer, include: connecting Gigabit Ethernet equipment on the factory floor; carrying content to digital signage in commercial locations; powering industrial printers, cameras, sensors and controllers; transferring data from monitoring equipment to a host computer; and mounting hubs on a DIN rail for easy integration into existing set-ups.
The company contends that the need for heavy-duty cables and connectivity solutions continues to grow as industrial and commercial facilities implement data-driven equipment, including Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices. According to Juniper Research, there will be 46 billion active IIoT devices by 2023. A large proportion of these devices will rely on edge computing to process and analyze data near its source.
“Warehouses and manufacturing plants rely on Ethernet connectivity to keep IIoT devices and other network equipment running smoothly,” says David Posner, Director of Product Marketing, Connectivity, for Tripp Lite. “With the growth of smart factories and edge computing, customers need purpose-built solutions that are designed to support connections in demanding environments like the factory floor. Tripp Lite is expanding its offering of industrial-grade products to provide IT managers with the best solution for their facility.”
