CHICAGO July 25, 2019 — Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, is helping customers support IT infrastructure in warehouses, factories and commercial environments with an expanded offering of industrial-grade cables and connectivity solutions. The new industrial products reinforce Tripp Lite’s commitment to providing complete solutions for every IT environment.
The need for heavy-duty cables and connectivity solutions continues to grow as industrial and commercial facilities implement data-driven equipment, including Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices. According to Juniper Research, there will be 46 billion active IIoT devices by 2023. A large proportion of these devices will rely on edge computing to process and analyze data near its source.
“Warehouses and manufacturing plants rely on Ethernet connectivity to keep IIoT devices and other network equipment running smoothly,” said David Posner, Director of Product Marketing, Connectivity. “With the growth of smart factories and edge computing, customers need purpose-built solutions that are designed to support connections in demanding environments like the factory floor. Tripp Lite is expanding its offering of industrial-grade products to provide IT managers with the best solution for their facility.”
Among the additions to Tripp Lite’s industrial line-up are Cat5e/Cat6 patch cables rated to IP67 for dust and moisture resistance, IP67-rated 4K HDMI cables with Ethernet support, an IP67-rated junction box, USB hubs with optional DIN-rail mounting and a USB hub with USB-C ports and USB 3.1 Gen 2 transfer speeds up to 10 Gbps.
