Regardless of the industry, all manufacturing teams have one thing in common-mature software and equipment may support their core manufacturing processes, however, there is no such support for ancillary processes.
Industrial control environments need to address shock, vibration, temperature, and space constraints. TE Connectivity's Industrial Mini I/O connector family is designed specifically with these needs in mind. The Mini I/O product takes the place of RJ45 connectors which were designed for office applications but wasn't originally intended for an industrial environment. The Mini I/O connectors are 25% of the size of RJ45 and are designed for the shock, vibration and temperature ranges of industrial control.
