TE Connectivity (TE) is your expert for all types of industrial motor connections. No matter which industrial motor you manufacture, TE will help you save time and money – by working with you to select the complete solution for your application.
From first idea to final design
Motors today are increasingly compact, yet house more functions than ever. And given the increased volume of data involved, it is essential to have absolutely reliable transfer connections that operate at the highest possible speeds. When internal data and power interface can be connected quickly, reliably, and efficiently, productivity is increased - and businesses grow. From proven, standard connectors and customized cable assemblies on the outside, to the latest sensor and magnet wire innovations inside the motor. From the first idea to the final design, your TE industrial motor experts provide the service you expect at every step of the way, wherever you are. Read more below to see how our products can be used in your industrial motor designs today.
Motor Interface Connector
Motor Interface connectors regulate the input and output of power and are crucial to the function of motors in industrial applications. Our products that fit into these applications offer reliable connectivity in harsh environments and can stand the test against high vibration and noise.
Circular Plastic Connectors (CPC)
For use where signal and/or power need to enter/exit a system. Mounting options include panel mount, free-hanging and wire-to-board. The receptacle and plug housings accept Type III+ or Size 20 signal contacts, Type XII power contacts or AMP POWERBAND contacts. Sealing to IP67 is also available.
Products for internal wiring can help simply your designs with sealed and protected tubing and terminals & splices products that can ensure ultimate performance.
Terminals & Splices
To crimp and solder splices available in a wide array of wire types and sizes, we can offer you the broadest portfolio of terminal and splice options for motor connectivity applications. Our application tooling products paired with our terminals and splices products ensures that properly applied crimps meet the ultimate performance.
Identification & Labeling
TE offers complete wiring identification and labels for a wide range of industries and applications. Our portfolio of wiring identification and labelling features flexible options including adhesive-backed wiring and cable labels, heat-shrinkable sleeves, cable markers, and hardware/software systems for onsite customization. See below for featured products in Motor Connectivity applications.
Metal Polyester (MP) labels are ideal for use as rating plates and in other applications that require a metal look, such as nameplates, equipment labels, detailed product information labels and serial number plates. Resistant to a variety of industrial solvents while maintaining excellent print quality. UL listed.
Clear Polyester (CP) labels are suitable for use as an over-laminate to further protect printed labels from chemicals, solvents, abrasion, heat and moisture. Designed for rating plates, nameplates, equipment labels, serial number plates, and general labeling applications that require a high durability transparent label.
Motor Feedback Device & Sensors
Industrial Resolvers serve as a motor feedback device in industrial motors by enabling the system to keep up with changes in speed and consistently maintain precision and control. Reliability in extreme environmental conditions as well as high precision and low space requirements supplement the favorable characteristics.
In addition, our sensor solutions cover a wide range of temperature measurement and control and compensation applications. Machine learning, condition-based monitoring, and predictive maintenance are among the applications that can be backed by our sensors that are enabling the next generation of data-driven, IIOT and Smart Factory technology.
Detects and measures hotness and coolness and converts it into an electrical signal. Our broad portfolio of temperature sensors – including our NTC thermistors, RTDs, thermocouples, and thermopiles – are designed for efficiency and easy installation, with capacity to reliably integrate technology that responds to human behavior.
Magnet Wire Terminations
When you are terminating motors or other magnet wire applications, TE can offer a broad range of solutions specifically designed to terminate magnet wire whether you are using copper wire, aluminum wire, or a combination of both.
AMPLIVAR Terminals & Splices
Specially designed for copper and/or aluminum magnet wire. A unique wire barrel design, with serrations and burrs, produces a superior metal-to-metal compression crimp with excellent tensile strength. With new application tooling, splices can be bussed together to splice four or more magnet wires in nearly infinite combinations.
Motor Applications Served
Servo Motors are becoming increasingly popular due to their high efficiency, especially in material handling systems and inside machinery. With the integration of controls, servo motors are more and more replacing hydraulic systems. From the inside to the outside, we can offer you magnet wire automation, resolvers for reliable feedback and great variety of reliable circular and rectangular connectors or any size of motor and many different applications.
Linear systems meet the need for low friction and high flexibility. These motors can be found in a wide variety of industries and applications, from robotics, processing up to packaging applications. To enable easy installation of linear motors, we can provide a broad range of quick connect solutions, which allow easy and fast installations, while providing reliable performance over time.
Driven by advancements in machine tooling, which require high precision and reliability, spindle motors are becoming the heart of modern production systems, delivering high quality end products. We can offer you reliable resolver technology and matching hybrid connector systems to support precise control and reliable feedback in harsh environments. Whether in circular or rectangular form - our connectors provide you with the design flexibility for your requirements.
These typically compact, lower cost stepper motors offer precise positioning and speed control. Typical applications include 3D printers, CNC systems, camera platforms and X, Y plotters. From the standard, proven plastic rectangular interconnect up to metric harsh circular connectors, we offer a complete connector portfolio to build your motor of choice.
