Panduit’s twisted-pair copper connectors meet the specifications of the IEEE 802.3bt standard for Power over Ethernet published in January 2019. That standard defines a maximum of 90 watts. While the standard itself is recently updated, Panduit’s certification to the higher loads has been in place since August 2016.
TIA TR-42.12 Engineering Committee on Optical Fibers and Cables issued a Call for Interest on two documents ANSI/TIA-455-191-C and ANSI/TIA-492AAAF.
A recent technical application guide composed by Cisco, Panduit and Rockwell Automation describes how “Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) is the underlying architecture that provides standard network services for control and information disciplines, devices, and equipment found in modern industrial automation and control system (IACS) applications.”
The National Electrical Code® (NEC®) is published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) with the revisions on a three-year schedule. The 2020 NEC, which replaces the 2017 NEC, was issued by the NFPA in August, 2019. This article provides the reader with a guide to the key changes in the 2020 National Electrical Code that are of interest to manufacturers, installers, distributors and users of data/comm cables.
As we build out 5G infrastructure and applications, with more connected devices and data than ever before, we must all do everything we can to build and operate trusted, reliable networks that minimize our exposure to cyberattacks and espionage. The question, as ever, is how. TIA CEO Dave Stehlin calls for the use of industry-driven standards and programs to protect the security of the supply chain.
A new National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard will harmonize and could accelerate deployment of connected vehicle roadside infrastructure technology. NEMA TS 10 Connected Vehicle Infrastructure-Roadside Equipment is a harmonized technical specification for roadside connected vehicle devices. Types of roadside devices covered under the standard are traffic signals, crosswalk signs, flashing school zone safety beacons, ramp meters, and other electronic traffic control equipment.
In this interview with TIA’s Harry Smeenk, reviews how TIA has taken 5G and IoT, and network evolution and next-generation networking, and put them into use-case examples for edge data centers and smart buildings.
While smart hospitals, the fusion intelligent building, IoT, and big data are still few and far between, today’s health care facility is increasingly digitized, from health records, diagnostic and monitoring equipment, environmental controls far beyond the thermostat – even the routing office visit may be a remote interaction spanning thousands of miles. As more systems connect to the network, ICT infrastructure is required to meet both today’s needs and those of tomorrow with minimal to no effect on the overall health care mission.To address this need, ANSI/BICSI 004-2018 has been revised and expanded.
TIA’s TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems Engineering Committee is in the midst of a busy year, with multiple standard-development projects completed and several others underway. Meanwhile, the TIA also is at work launching a different standards-development committee that also will concern itself with information communications technology (ICT) systems, not limited to cabling infrastructure. This article will recap some of the goings-on within TR-42 and provide information on the formation of TR-60.
More than half of Industrial Ethernet problems can be traced to cabling. Testing cables when installed can speed the startup process and prevent problems in the future. This webinar co-hosted by Fluke and Panduit reviews twisted pair cabling standards, cabling issues and testers for pre-deployment and troubleshooting.
