Mouser and Molex create digital IIoT think tank
Mouser Electronics and Molex have joined forces up to offer design engineers a new resource site devoted to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The resource site is aimed at engineers who may find it challenging to create manufacturing systems that deliver connectivity and security with ultra-low power consumption for IIoT.
It will feature a range of innovative products, technical information and more from Molex to help engineers design future IIoT applications.
To stay on top of the rapidly changing face of industrial automation, manufacturers will need to embrace change and develop custom solutions that take advantage of the flexibility and efficiency of IIoT.
The site includes articles, blog posts, application briefs and an eBook with contributions from Molex and Mouser subject matter experts that cover some of the most important topics in industrial automation, including digital twinning, deep learning, and neural networks. Leading off with an article that spotlights the Molex Industrial Automation Solution (IAS) 4.0, the site also offers a wealth of videos and product information.
Mouser stocks a broad selection of Molex products, including many ideal for IIoT applications. Molex Brad Ultra-Lock cordsets offer better performance and reliability than traditional threaded connectors, delivering increased productivity and cost savings through a patented push-to-lock technology.
Molex Contrinex inductive and photoelectric sensors are robust, self-contained sensors with an integrated IO-Link, a large sensing range, and compact housing.
A range of passive RFID tags are robust IP67- and IP68-rated devices designed to withstand extreme temperatures, vibration, and challenging environments, with frequency options that adhere to different worldwide standards.
The Molex Micro-Lock 1.25 mm pitch wire-to-board connection system offers one of the smallest wire-to-board "potting" connectors, with 3 mm high (single-row) and 6 mm high (dual-row) potting material to safeguard contact and latch areas in applications requiring environmental protection.
The Easy-On FFC/FPC connectors are available in a variety of pitches, from 0.2 mm to 1.0 mm, to provide a reliable connection while reducing space, weight and cost.
