Industry 4.0 is the fourth generation of the Industrial Revolution resulting in the “Smart Factories” of today.
While the third generation revolution was all about automation that saved human effort, time and resources, Gen 4.0 goes an extra step to “automate this automation”.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has led to this automation where factory components are able to virtually “talk” and “negotiate” with each other to decide for themselves how to best optimize production.
At Amphenol ICC, we are committed to help companies realize the vision of Industry 4.0. We dedicate resources to develop products that enable our customers to participate in this market revolution. Check out our product range designed to help you reap the benefits of Industry 4.0.

Memory & Media Card Sockets
BergStik 2.54 mm unshrouded headers are available in surface-mount (SMT), through-hole (THT), press-fit, stacking, and pin-in-paste (PIP) versions. Designed in single and double row, they are available in straight or right angle options, from 2- to 72-positions. Featuring a "breakaway" design, each connector can be cut or broken to length to suit the application profile. The maximum current rating is 3 A per contact. This product range is extended with BergStik 2.54 mm unshrouded vertical headers in 0.25 μm plating, available in standard sizes. It offers an economical solution for various applications. It is also specified up to 100 mating cycles. BergStik product range provides board-to-board, wire to-board, and cable-to-board interconnect solutions for all electronic equipment and devices.
Conan 1.00 mm connectors produces a “click” sound when mated. This unique design ensures reliable connection. Palladium, nickel, and gold-plated electrical snap engagement contacts enable high reliability, whereas its blade-on-beam contact design assists in mating. Connector housings also feature a lead-in angle to assist blind mating. This connector series with many benefits makes it the ideal solution for automotive lighting, as well as industrial and harsh environment applications.
SheerPwr™ circular connectors are high-current, low-resistance interfaces designed for connecting busbars to circuit boards. They use a robust and compliant power contact assembled in a circular orientation. The result is a power socket, designed to mate with traditional machined pins, which provides repeated low resistance, high misalignment, and high current carrying capabilities.
Minitek127 is an extensive modular range of connectors for all types of wire to board and cable to board applications. It includes straight and right angle, surface-mount, through-mount, pin headers, and board receptacles in different plating variations and position numbers up to 100. The product line also include IDC version.
Flexible Printed Circuit Board Connector
