Siemon, a global infrastructure specialist, is celebrating the success of the Jubail Industrial Internet of Things Conference where it showcased its comprehensive portfolio of cabling and connectivity solutions for harsher environments.
Jubail IIoT conference and exhibition took place in December at the King Abdullah Cultural Centre in Jubail Industrial City, the host of the world’s largest petrochemical complex. Bringing together business executives and technical IT specialists from pioneering companies in the industrial sector, the event focused on increasing the understanding of how the Internet of Things is impacting industries such as Manufacturing, Energy and Utilities, Healthcare, Connected Transportation, Buildings, and Infrastructure.
In tutorials, presentation sessions, workshops and discussions, attendees learned about industry 4.0 strategy and adoption, impacting regulations and security risks and implications.
Siemon showcased its portfolio of infrastructure solutions for the harsh environment, including its line of Ruggedised copper and optical fibre cabling and connectivity. Siemon’s Ruggedised outlets and modular patch cords provide an IP66, IP67-rated seal, protecting plug and outlet contacts from dust, moisture, industrial cleaning chemicals and vibration to safeguard valuable connections in harsh environments such as in laboratories, hospitals, food processing plants and other.
Also on display was Siemon’s Automated Infrastructure Management solution MapIT G2 which provides real-time tracking and reporting of activity at the physical layer of a network to improve asset management, reduce downtime and simplify regulatory compliance.
At the stand, Siemon experts were at hand to guide leading end users in the chemicals, petroleum and gas, electric utility and mining markets through the process of selecting the right types of ruggedised cabling and connectivity components for harsher industrial environments. This helps them to maintain long-term network reliability and prevents the need to replace components due to corrosion and damage from a variety of elements.
“Manufacturing environments have rapidly migrated to Industrial Ethernet to deliver information for industrial automation and control systems and to integrate factory environments with the corporate LAN,” says Prem Rodrigues, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Middle East, India and SAARC at Siemon. “We are now seeing a growing demand for network cables, patch cords and connectors that are capable of withstanding more severe conditions. However, sufficient knowledge of the standards that apply and the different types of ruggedised solutions available is very important.”
“We are very pleased with the interest that our solutions set received at Jubail IIoT, which confirms that companies are increasingly seeking reliable, high-performance network cabling solutions that help them extend their network outside of the corporate LAN into hasher environments. This event gave us a valuable opportunity to position the company as a leading force in the industrial market for network infrastructure solutions and we look forward to continuing our work throughout 2019,” concluded Rodrigues.
