TE Connectivity Announced Sensors for the Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0

qeTE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, manufactures industrial sensors with the packaging to support harsh environments, low current consumption, and a variety of measurement types to enable the growth of Industry 4.0.

TE’s sensors create an opportunity to read measurement properties to predict failure, monitor levels, and increase efficiencies to create a smart factory. Accurate measurements in harsh environments and conditions expand the reach of sensors to various types of equipment and processes. From miniaturized sensors with multiple digital output signals to wireless sensor technologies, TE offers various solutions to enable Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of things (IIoT).

As industrial robotic automation advances, sensing technology will continue to be the foundation for data collection that will help transform manufacturing floors into the connected, cost-effective, and reliable factories of the future. Learn how sensors are driving this evolution.

Monitoring sensor output signals over a period of time can offer insights into equipment failure. From bearing vibration to rising temperatures, as properties change, the decline in performance or need for part replacement can be predicted to avoid catastrophic failure, downtime, and cost. Filtration is another area of maintenance; as an example, differential pressure sensors can be used to monitor pressure across a filter to predict hydraulic or pneumatic filter maintenance.

For industrial condition monitoring and predictive maintenance applications vibration specification parameters are considered critical to ensure long-term, reliable, stable and accurate performance including: wide frequency response, measurement resolution, low drift, and operating temperature.
