Smart cables enable transition from intelligent products to intelligent wired networks

September 19, 2019 | Case Study

Dresspack systems and drag chains are frequently used in production plants and large industrial robotic systems to guide data and power cables between the control system, sensors, and actuators. These cables are constantly exposed to high stress due to frequent recurring movements of the associated systems, high temperatures, high electromagnetic fields due to the confined spaces in which they are forced to operate, as well as industrial lubricants and other aggressive fluids. Energy and data cables in such settings are highly prone to failure, thereby leading to hazardous conditions as well as costly unplanned production shutdowns. Moreover, cable failures can be difficult and time-consuming to track down.
