Belden will at this year’s Hannover Fair, showcase its range of networking, cabling and connectivity solutions for mission critical applications in alternative energy, safe railway transport systems and reliable energy efficient data center management, as well as solutions for wireless networking and connectivity.

During the show Belden, located in Hall 9 booth D11, will highlight a number of solutions for challenging applications, using specialised products from its Belden, Hirschmann and Lumberg Automation branded ranges.

A key focus will be the Smart Factory. Aligned with Industry 4.0, the Smart Factory initiative sets out to create fully flexible production lines. This makes it possible to produce unlimited variations of models on the same line. To do so effectively requires smarter machines, able to adapt immediately to changed requirements and communicate with each other throughout the value stream. The fair will feature a live demo production line to show how the company’s latest modules respond as changes occur during production.
