Build a smart factory by unlocking the power of industrial data communication
Build a smart factory by unlocking the power of industrial data communication

The fourth industrial revolution has arrived.

Manufacturing firms worldwide leverage massive advances in digital technologies to build smart factories, which significantly reduce operational costs, increase production speed, and improve worker safety.

Smart factories are able to do this by digitally connecting various factory assets across the production chain, and enabling them to collect and exchange information via sensors and actuators, in what is known as the industrial internet of things (IIoT). Underpinning this convergence of information and operational technology (IT/OT), is the extensive use of cable connections capable of transmitting large volumes of data.

LAPP’s world-leading range of data cable connectors are built for reliable transmission of the highest data volumes under the most demanding chemical, mechanical and thermal stress. From actuator-sensor interface (AS-i) and bus systems to ethernet and fibre optics, LAPP’s comprehensive range of AS-i and data cable connectors meet all common protocol standards, and offer the highest data performance for your smart factory.
