Belden Connectivity Solution delivers flexible, reliable Signal Transmission for Textile Industry

Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, was selected to supply an integrated, flexible and ruggedized industrial connectivity solution for a German textile machinery manufacturer

The textile manufacturer produces assembly parts for knitting machines and requires a high-level of precision and accuracy in its production process. To provide this customer with improved efficiency and enhanced flexibility in their manufacturing operations, Belden worked with the system integrator, and their customer and machine builder Erhardt + Abt, to develop a fully-automated robot system that could be moved to any operations location without requiring modifications.

BELDEN PR428a“For these intelligent processes to operate smoothly, we needed a signal transmission solution that could be installed quickly, operate reliably – even with extreme dust and vibrations – and would connect with standard cabling,” said Robert Pakljec, technical director, Erhardt + Abt. “To meet these challenging requirements, we worked with to select Belden’s ruggedized LioN-R modules and M12 connector.”

“When we considered daily environmental conditions in the manufacturer’s facilities, we knew they needed products that could withstand intense vibration and extreme temperatures,” said Karl-Heinz Schoeck, sales manager, “The integrated solution we offered complies with the IP67 protection class to ensure reliable operation in these conditions, and the standardized cabling was easy to install with ready-to-use connector.”

“The machine building sector is up against major space constraints. In this application, a single LioN-R module will meet the manufacturer’s requirements, and it also gives them flexibility to decide how to use any combination of input and output channels,” said Toni Hauert, business development manager, Belden. “This not only enables fast and reliable signal transmission, but also reduces the amount of wiring needed, which will lower this manufacturer’s overall installation and maintenance costs.”
