Utilities are a vital part of the nation’s infrastructure. A wide variety of equipment and devices are essential to the proper and consistent functioning of our national and local utility complexes. All of these system components depend in some way on connectivity for the transmission of power, data, signals, and other communications. As IoT (Internet of Things) technology becomes more integrated in these processes, the need for reliable connections will only increase.
Power Grid Connectivity
A complex and interconnected system, the nation’s power grid delivers electricity from power plants to homes and businesses throughout the country. The power grid is controlled and monitored by a variety of electronic systems that require reliable connectivity products to transmit data between devices such as routers, switches, and modems. New green energy technologies such as wind and solar also require power grid connectivity.
Water and Wastewater Treatment Connectivity
All processes involved in water and wastewater treatment must operate reliably 24 hours a day to ensure vital community access to safe water. A wide range of technology is currently used in water treatment applications, including controls, sensors, and similar devices. The Sustainable Wastewater Infrastructure of the Future (SWIFt) Initiative, currently underway in state and local governments, will mean the deployment of even more technology for infrastructure improvements and data management, all of which will require dependable connectors.
Traffic Control Devices Connectivity
Network connectivity for traffic control devices has become more important as civil and traffic engineers connect new and existing systems to create an Intelligent Transport System (ITS). ITS includes devices and equipment such as traffic signal controllers, cameras, variable message signs, pedestrian detectors, weather stations, and more. Each of these components must have rugged, dependable connectors to assure the safe and successful functioning of the system and network.
