Is IO-Link with Single Pair Ethernet the Future?

20 meters. That is the maximum distance between an IO-Link master port and an IO-Link device using a standard prox cable. By using SPE, we gain the Ethernet cable length advantage. So, instead of being limited to 20 meters, your IO-Link cabling could stretch to 100 meters! Imagine the opportunities that opens in industrial applications. It is possible that even longer runs will be achievable.

Single Pair Ethernet Explained Key drivers behind this emerging technology

With the growth of the internet of things (IoT), machine-to-machine communications, building automation sensors and other emerging technologies, there is greater demand for connectivity that can deliver both power and data over longer distances to support these applications. Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is poised to address these trends, as it combines reliable, economical, lightweight and space-efficient single pair cabling with Ethernet’s non-proprietary protocols for greater interoperability.

Introduction to Single Pair Ethernet | Industrial Ethernet Book

Single Pair Ethernet is a key development and the infrastructure that will make another level of IIoT and Industry 4.0 connectivity possible. For the reliable establishment of the entire future SPE ecosystem, standards for transmission protocols, cabling and device components are all being jointly developed by a broad coalition of industrial automation and control suppliers.

Ethernet Continues to Thrive in All-Remote Model

The advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) provides businesses with a means to make these important networks part of a cohesive Ethernet-based network, bringing powerful new benefits to the adopters. SPE provides the last link in a chain of communications from the cloud to the network edge, all in a single protocol network. That in itself drives enormous value because now ALL information is available readily, easily transported and stored, unlocking huge data sets to power analytics. The transparency and availability of this information drives better and faster decisions for businesses. leading to higher levels of service for their customers.

Allied Ask the Expert: How Single Pair Ethernet Enables a Future of Innovation in IIoT

SPE technology is designed to connect multiple devices and/or machines to a network and eliminate the need for “translation,” which previously would occur within the gateways. SPE enables full, real-time communication from the sensor to the cloud in a native language without losing information. The technology not only simplifies machine connectivity and data transmission but, in a broader view, facilitates an open ecosystem, with real-time and high-speed communication in a much more cost-effective way.
