Industrial applications for wire and cable require a higher degree of certainty than many other industries. If a local powerplant or factory has downtime on their networks, it can cost anywhere from thousands to tens of thousands on their bottom line - per hour! This puts things into perspective compared to, say, not being able to stream Netflix for a few nights. Manufacturing and industrial sectors are extremely competitive markets, and they have become heavily automated. These are among some of the reasons why having cables and connectivity that can endure in harsh industrial environments is a must for many companies today.
Perhaps one of the industries most in need of quality harsh environmental cables is the oil and gas industry, especially for the recent booms in deepwater exploration and drilling. Continual increases in customer and industry demands have pushed rigs out into ever deeper waters in search of oil and gas deposits. Since downtime in deepwater deployment doesn't just mean loss of revenue, but also concern for both safety of the persons deployed as well as the safety of the environment, there has been an adoption of the Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) Final Rule. Ensuring that safety is maintained is just as critical, and yet another facet of the business which relies on quality cable installations through the facility in question.
