Time-saving, reliable and field-installable

wiring solutions

Today’s factories and distribution centers are increasingly lean and agile, able to respond as fast as their markets. Automation systems help manufacturers and logistics firms operate more efficiently – saving on labor and maintenance, while improving throughput. A critical consideration: what connects these systems together.

Sensor Connectivity

Sensors are the “nervous system” of the operation, tracking pressure, temperature, humidity and other conditions that impact automation performance. Keep your wired sensor networks well-connected – and keep your goods flowing smoothly – with next-generation technologies from 3M.
