TE Insights on Technology Trends
Integrating and Automating the Global Economy
Accelerating the Next Industrial Revolution. In industrial facilities and on offshore platforms around the world, a bold vision for automating and integrating complex production processes is taking shape. Increasingly, manufacturers are looking to integrate digital technologies that increase flexibility, improve efficiency, prevent unexpected downtimes, and accelerate production. At the center of this evolution, known at Industry 4.0, is interoperability, an opportunity to create customer value by enabling reliable machine-to-machine (M2M) capabilities, deep learning from manufacturing processes, and greater control of innovative technology, including robotic systems and automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

Analog and Digital Transducers — The Advantages of Both
Most sensing begins in the analog world. Over the past two decades, sensors and transducers have moved from purely analog operation to digital protocols, signal processing, and interfaces. As a result, analog and digital transducers are worlds apart in their technologies, interfaces,
output signals, and the terminology used to describe and specify their operation.
Today, digital prevails in many application spaces. But there are many application areas, such as high EMI/RFI environments, where an analog transducer will always surpass a digital approach. Learn about our M3200 industrial pressure transducer – available in either an analog or digital configuration, and engineered to deliver key advantages.
