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).
Building Better Robots
In collaboration with Mouser, we developed this eBook which features experts from TE and Mouser talking about the robotics solutions enabling the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Learn about some of our top products for robotics, including Intercontec connectors, M8/M12 connectors, and our line of Heavy Duty connectors. (Link directs to Mouser.com)
Integrating systems across production
At TE, we design and manufacture the connectivity and sensors solutions that make the internet-enabled smart factory possible. Our broad portfolio of solutions enables manufacturers to operate factory machines and offshore equipment that can share data across platforms, predict maintenance requirements, automate complex repeatable processes, and coordinate always-on, on-demand operations, transforming mass-production facilities into customized-manufacturing factories and subsea platforms into real-time exploration and production networks.

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.
