While consumer and industrial-grade connectors have essentially identical functions, industrial connectors are utilized in applications that diverge considerably from those used in consumer electronics equipment. What differentiates industrial connectors from PCB and common I/O connectors is the substantial amount of engineering that went into designing the integral environmental protection needed for proper connector operation in many harsh or hazardous industrial environments. If you are an electronics student, a hobbyist in the maker community, or if you have been a design engineer focused on consumer electronics products, this learning module will expand your knowledge of the most common types of industrial connectors used in a wide range of applications spanning, IoT, M2M communications, motor control, parameter monitoring, energy production, and more.
