In the video Charles Boyce, President of Boyce Technologies explains how HARTING products have made "building customized solutions" simpler.
For design engineers there are two choices for industrial electrical connectors: circular and rectangular. Both have benefits – but choosing the right connector for your design is critical to ensure your system reliability.
Download the FAQ to answer these questions:
- Which connectors (circular or rectangular) are more reliable?
- How are today’s connectors different from those in the past?
- What does the future hold for rectangular connectors?
How to Reduce Field Installation Time Using Plug-and-Play Solutions
Wiring in the field is time intensive – and thus, cost intensive. Using a pre-assembled, pre-tested connector assembly can reduce hard wiring time by 99%. Watch the time-lapse video to see how much time using a connector saves in the field.
- Read the white paper to learn how using connectors has helped other companies:
- Cut wiring time of a printing press unit from 4 days to 2 ½ days
- Save a crane manufacturer $13,000 in labor incurred from hardwiring errors in the field
- Increase the throughput of a conveyor system by 15%
They outperform hardwiring of machines and control systems in most situations from a design and project cost standpoint, and by quite a margin on a total cost of ownership basis. They make a reliable and robust connection. But there is a subtext in selecting the best connector for the job: Will that be rectangular or circular? – two different approaches with some very different attributes.
