Connection technology

Connection technology

Connection technology plays an important role in automation. In general it means the connection or combination of individual technical parts or devices. These may be cables, terminals, connectors or sensor/actuator boxes. In connection technology various quality features are important for reliable operation, for example robustness and reliability but also high conductivity.

Typical applications of connection technology

No automated application can function without any connection elements. This is already founded in the basic design of a plant: Certain data has to be detected by a sensor unit, evaluated and reliably transmitted to a controller. Accordingly there is a wide range of applications. Connection technology can be used, for example to connect:

  • measuring probes with evaluation units,
  • cables by means of terminal blocks,
  • sensors and actuators.
