Imahara and Mouser interview TE Connectivity about the latest innovations in factory automation

Mouser Electronics is partnering with celebrity engineer Grant Imahara for the final Innovation Spotlight interview as part of the Home and Factory Automation Series and Empowering Innovation Together program.

In this final interview of the series, Grant moves from the home to the factory as he uncovers the latest in connectivity and sensor solutions from one of the largest providers of advanced connectivity solutions in the world: TE Connectivity. Learn how TE executive vice president and chief technology officer Rob Shaddock sees the evolution of factory automation, and how TE is contributing to that evolution by connecting power and control systems to make manufacturing more productive with their ARISO Contactless Connectivity system.

The Innovation Spotlight with TE Connectivity, now available on the Mouser Electronics website, explores the ways companies like TE offer design solutions that maximise uptime and productivity, while cutting through the dust, dirt, water, corrosion and vibration that often get in the way of optimal connectivity and communication in the factory.

Enabling connectivity where connections were not possible before, the TE ARISO system features couplers to add embedded intelligence capabilities, as well as sensors, which capture, store and communicate data. Using both contactless power and contactless data technology, ARISO can help reduce maintenance and installation efforts on the factory floor by easily connecting over a short distance without physical contact, diminishing problems that typically affect connectivity in harsh environments and impact the reliable delivery of power, data and signal.

“Innovative platforms like TE’s ARISO are transforming the world of factory automation as we know it today, and taking it to a whole new level of connectivity and control,” said Grant Imahara. “This extreme adaptability means all devices provide real-time data to improve productivity and flexibility in the factory.”

The Empowering Innovation Together Home and Factory Automation Series is sponsored by Platinum Program Partner Analog Devices and Diamond sponsors Altera, Murata, and TE Connectivity. This new series is the third installment and follow-up to the popular Robotics series, a Telly award winner, and Space series launched earlier this year from Mouser Electronics and Grant Imahara.
