As the majority (80%) of UK manufacturing leaders express a clear understanding of the benefits of investing in new technologies and are committed to adopt data-driven technologies, the use of I/O terminal blocks is on the rise.

In effect, these are amongst the most numerous and common components in industrial automation applications.

Therefore, their wiring plays a key role in the installation, operation and maintenance of future-oriented smart manufacturing solutions. The latest guide from Mitsubishi Electric investigates how to identify the most suitable I/O, terminal blocks and termination cables, helping companies streamline the implementation of industrial automation systems whilst increasing their robustness.

The document reviews a number of cabling options, presenting their designs as well as pros and cons. In its analysis, the company highlights why screwless push-in technology with a mechanical release is the ideal approach. By providing quick, reliable and maintenance-free wiring, users can reduce cost, time and resource utilisation.

Duncan Nicol, Market Development Manager at Mitsubishi Electric, comments: “Manufacturers know that smart manufacturing is key to driving up their competitiveness. To benefit from the key advantages that digitalisation offers, every component and its integration needs to be highly effective. This is why every aspect of an industrial automation project, including the wiring and cabling, should be designed to maximise the return on investment.

“With our extensive expertise in drives, controls and automated components, we can help shed light on the technologies best suited to support the digital transformation of business.”
