OSA | Low loss single-mode polymer optical waveguide with circular cores

Multicore fibers (MCFs), which have multiple cores aligned in one cylindrical cladding, are a promising optical fiber design that dramatically enhances the number of optical channels per cross-sectional area. The Mosquito method is one way to fabricate single-mode polymer optical waveguides with multiple cores while maintaining an identical mode-field diameter among them. The technique forms circular cores in polymer waveguides using a commercially available microdispenser and multi-axis syringe scanning robot.

Single Pair Ethernet in Automation | Ethernet Alliance

With the advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE), systems that formerly used RS-485 serial communications can be upgraded with little change to the media and brought into the broader Ethernet network. In addition, Single Pair Ethernet brings the added benefit of remote powering of devices using SPoE (Single Pair Power over Ethernet), a standard like the familiar PoE (Power over Ethernet).

Understanding Cabling Considerations for PoE to support IoT

PoE standardization and its implications on cabling and efficient power delivery is creating a timely opportunity to power the growing number of IoT devices being added to the cabling infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively. In CommScope’s white paper you’ll learn why PoE adoption is increasing, the applications driving it, how the key technical standards work with it, what the key considerations for cabling selection are and how to create solutions that are more efficient.

Smart buildings and wellbeing: Wearing your heart on your HVAC

How long before your building “knows” more about you than you do yourself? As ever-more processing is crammed into smaller, lighter and cheaper devices, it was only a matter of time before people would be able to wear them as they go about their everyday lives. It hasn’t taken long for people to find ways in which wearables could be used to improve the inter-relationship between buildings on the one hand, and the people who live or work in them, or visit them.

Optical Sensors are the Key to Health-Monitoring Wearables—And Size is Critical

One field that has benefited from optical sensor technology is wearable health and fitness. Optical biosensors have been embraced by the healthcare industry because they offer many advantages over conventional analytical techniques. This technology has appeared in applications including glucose sensing, laminate cure analysis, protein analysis, dosage form analysis, and many more.

PoE Cabling Explained: Architectures, Advantages, and Applications

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is shaping the current network ecosystem. Be it digital transformation, Internet of Things (IoT), NextGen wireless, smart devices solutions, etc. are all in rapid growth with the adoption of PoE technology. The structured and converged PoE cabling also has evolved in the past decade. This article explains common PoE cabling architectures, and provides further insights into the benefits and the applications of the zone cabling in PoE deployments.

5-port industrial 802.3bt PoE switches target harsh environments

Antaira Technologies’ new LNP-0500G-bt and LNP-0500G-bt-24 switches fulfill the need for low port-count PoE gigabit connectivity in industrial applications. Each unit has five gigabit Ethernet ports that are IEEE 802.3af/at/bt compliant on four of the ports (data and power output maximum 90W/port). The LNP-0500G-bt Ethernet switch is billed as rugged, reliable and geared for applications that require up to 90 watts of PoE power.
