Data collection and analytics have become increasingly important in modern manufacturing. As more and more automation devices are available with built-in Ethernet connectivity, real-time plant floor data is promising to transform the way manufacturers produce and go to market. To realize the benefits of this newly available data, industrial machinery must communicate with other devices quickly and reliably in demanding plant floor environments. One key consideration of any industrial Ethernet network is ensuring that cabling, connectors and other physical infrastructure can meet the unique demands of the plant floor.
