Mechanically connects a terminal to a printed circuit board, eliminating the solder process, providing better performance in harsh environments, and added capacity for interconnections when space in the vehicle is limited
These sensors monitor and send speed data to the engine control system and ABS, to improve ride, handling, and safety
Integrates mechanical components and electrical hardware – including sensors – into a single unit, for more reliable and versatile vehicle applications
A LOOK INSIDE: CONNECTED FACTORY
Fast, Precise, and Safe
Factories are using TE’s connectivity and sensor solutions to transform assembly lines into self-monitoring, adaptive learning systems, resulting in a new level of safety in human-robot interoperability. In a connected factory, sensor-equipped robots can learn tasks and predict human behavior, leading to an infrastructure which can quickly leverage vast amounts of real-time data, respond to changing on-demand production needs, and improve efficiency, quality, and cost performance.
