Belden, a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, offers a significant product portfolio for signal transmission, data communication networks and power supply of devices suited for Material Handling and Robotic applications through its three strong brands: Belden, Hirschmann and Lumberg Automation.
Belden cabling for control and data transmission has a number of key advantages, delivering cost savings and higher availability of your overall network: it supports all relevant industrial communication protocols, is UL-certified, fire-retardant, resistant to lubricants, acids, alkalis and UV radiation. The cables are designed for millions of bending cycles and high torsional stress. Thanks to Belden’s technology leadership, cables with a torsional strength of +/- 720° per meter are able to support bidirectional robotic axis rotation, so your robotics can keep working and deliver value.
Hirschmann ruggedized switching technology, placed in cabinets or directly on the machine, is rated from IP30 to IP67 and can be combined with advanced cyber security methods to provide future proofed communication concepts that increase overall flexibility and reliability. The product range covers the full range of switches from unmanaged to professional managed, offering you a comprehensive choice to help you meet your cost and functional requirements. They are easy to install and maintain, thus helping to reduce your maintenance costs. Non-technical staff are able to configure switches thanks to the availability of auto configuration adopters.
At field level, Lumberg Automation is the specialist in the connection of sensors/ actuators as well as their power supply, for hundreds of different standard molded connectors, individual lengths of cable, and a broad range of field-attachable connectors. The product program has the ideal solution for virtually all automation applications that require reliable wiring of industrial robots, I/O boxes or sensor/ actuators, including customer and application specific versions, to provide the advantage of higher flexibility.
Belden understands that you require high availability solutions that enable you to compete successfully in international environments. To do so effectively, you will need to focus on these aspects:
