Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) will open up new dimensions in Ethernet/IP data transmission, they say. Experts agree: SPE is becoming an application-independent, inexpensive key technology in the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
TE Connectivity’s new Mini-ETH single pair Ethernet system for commercial aircraft offers substantial weight savings, more bandwidth and simpler installation and maintenance by using proven technologies from other markets. As designers search for greater efficiency onboard aircraft, TE’s new Mini-ETH system offers them up to 73% weight savings in cables and up to 41% weight savings in connectors compared to standard eight-wire cables and rectangular connectors.
Panduit is pleased to announce the approval of the IEC 63171-1 (Variant 1) Single Pair Ethernet connector style by ISO IEC SC48B, the standards body that helps with international standardization of low voltage connectors. This newly standardized Single Pair Ethernet connector design will be key to supporting the explosion of Ethernet connectivity into edge devices within a broad range of applications including industrial controls, building automation systems and related sub-systems that can take advantage of structured cabling.
In a live webinar with our Ethernet experts Harding will highlight the capabilities of Single Pair Ethernet and show which IIoT applications are made possible by SPE. We talk about how SPE helps the Smart Factory get on its feet and provide examples from the fields of automation, transportation, automotive and robotics.
Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) enables legacy industrial networks and building automation systems to migrate to single Ethernet network technology that delivers power, control and information to edge devices. In this comprehensive report from Panduit, learn how SPE works; uncover network architecture design considerations; understand market forces driving the use of SPE; discover advantages ranging from supporting the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to improved cybersecurity to lower total cost of ownership; and learn how to prepare for the emerging SPE standard.
The standards development efforts that will produce specifications for single-pair data transmission and single-pair cabling systems will build on a vehicular-related foundation. In 2015 the IEEE completed its 802.3bw standard which specifies 100Base-T1 systems, driven by the automotive industry’s needs.
It’s hard to believe but 10Mb/s Ethernet is becoming a very hot topic in the industry again. I get asked “Why are we going back to the 1980s?” There is a simple answer, and to those of us in the industry at that time, it’s very familiar. In that era before Ethernet became ubiquitous, networking truly was the wild west. Everyone had their own protocols, physical layers, connectors etc. However, since then IT has converged a core set of technologies, with Ethernet leading the way, that provides seamless connectivity to billions of people.
Emerging standards to support Single-Pair Ethernet will have a meaningful impact in the smart building sector. Joining panelists from Analog Devices, Cisco, CommScope and Panduit, ACE IoT outlined how widespread adoption of Single-Pair Ethernet standards will help resolve long-standing challenges acquiring and deriving value from building operations data.
The #BICSIFallTIA Single Pair Ethernet Consortium panelists discussed how to leverage this powerful technology to support the micro-IT devices that enable the #IoT, #smartbuildings, and more. Panelists represented the entire SPE ecosystem with representation from CommScope, Panduit, Cisco, Analog Devices, and ACE IoT Solutions. Visit http://www.spec.tiaonline.org for more.
