Nexans Launches Industrial Ethernet Solutions in U.S.

Transforming Industrial Automation

NEW HOLLAND, PA USA – December 11, 2017 – Nexans announced today the launch of Industrial Ethernet solutions in the United States. The new product offering includes Nexans branded copper and optical fiber cables, cordsets, and field installable connectors in both RJ and M12 form factors.

According to recent market surveys1, the use of Industrial Ethernet to connect, control, and monitor factories is growing at a rate of 20% annually. Manufacturers are accelerating the implementation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 tools and processes to maximize profitability. This transformation, sometimes referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, is encouraging manufacturers to migrate from legacy Fieldbus systems to the modern Industrial Ethernet, which is becoming the network of choice in harsh industrial environments for its simplicity, scalability, diagnostic capabilities and high performance.

“Improving production uptime and maximizing manufacturing efficiency are of utmost importance to our customers, and our offering will help them achieve both objectives,” said Steven Vermeulen, Nexans EVP Americas. ”Nexans is a leader in cabling solutions in Industrial markets, and we are excited to bring this offering to the U.S.”

Nexans’ industrial solutions are specially designed and tested to ensure high performance in a variety of harsh conditions. In addition to superior data transmission capabilities, their industrial-optimized attributes include high-flex capability tested to millions of flex cycles, ingress protection to IP-67 performance, chemical resistance, and EMI capabilities with superior shielding effectiveness for noisy industrial environments.

Nexans Industrial Solutions will service the U.S. market through a specialized industrial sales force and distribution partners, both with a focus on industrial automation. The target audience will include decision makers and influencers at manufacturers, industrial contractors, engineering companies and system integrators.
