Industrial Communication

Distrelec supply an extended range of products and accessories ideal for cable joining and splicing. Junction boxes and terminals are also stocked to ensure you have a range of options for joining cables.

Cable joiners

Joiners are essential when working with wires and cables in awkward environments. Distrelec’s stock comes in a range of sizes and capacities to fit your needs.


The process of splicing is to separate a cable so that two end terminals can be connected to their respective cable conductors. Splicing cassettes sold by Distrelec are the housing for the beginning or the end of cable transmission paths.

Junction boxes

When two or more cables are carrying an electrical current, a junction box is an ideal place for protecting the junction and also to be easily found when maintenance needs to take place.

Industrial communication devices use a wide variety of methods to talk to one another in various settings, such as building automation and manufacturing process protocols. These methods can include fibre optic systems or more established networking protocols, like Cat5 or Cat6 Ethernet wiring, and near-field wireless technologies such as Bluetooth are becoming more popular. In other situations, industrial and telemetry data is transmitted to a server by Wi-Fi communication protocols and can then be monitored from any location via a virtual private network over the Internet. Wired Ethernet-based products which are used for industrial communications include switches and patch bays, whereas when communications products are integrated into electrical installations, AS-Interface technology tends to be used. Bluetooth communication modules tend be manufactured as OEM products which can be fitted into industrial equipment either before it is installed or afterwards, as a modular retro-fit. These options offer industrial communication solutions to solve complex tasks, such as increasing efficiency of production lines, reaching economies of scale, and coordinating the flow of information in real time.
