Understand Connector Selection To Avoid Downtime

A typical manufacturing plant today will have thousands, or even many thousands, of electrical connections on both fixed equipment and moving machines. And it’s just a matter of time before some of those connections fail or wear out, bringing production machines to a dead stop. One way to minimize this downtime is to “connectorize” power and signal cables.

Multi-conductor cables can often be replaced in just minutes if they have connectors at both ends. Hard-wiring that same cable could take hours.
