Fischer Connectors enhances IIoT connectivity with ultra-rugged solutions using Single Pair Ethernet and USB 3.2 protocols

Fischer Connectors has developed new high-speed data and power connectivity solutions combining Single Pair Ethernet and USB 3.2 Gen 2 high-speed protocols with the rugged, high-density and miniature features of its flagship product lines. They enable space-saving and cost-efficient integration in industrial automation and robotics, chemical plants, food processing, automotive production lines, outdoor sensing and unmanned systems.

Examining single pair cabling technologies

Single pair cabling is intimately related to Single Pair Ethernet, a technology that has proven successful in other industries, particularly automotive production. For the past couple years, standards and product development activity have brought single pair cabling to the precipice of market introduction.
This roundtable-style conversation features the following individuals, whose companies are members of the Telecommunications Industry Association’s Single Pair Ethernet Consortium (SPEC): Adnan Ahmed, technical advisory and solutions lead, Reichle & De-Massari; Valerie Maguire, distinguished engineer, Siemon; Harshang Pandya, general manager, test and measurement solutions, AEM; and Bob Voss, distinguished engineer, Panduit.

IEEE Tech Talk: Single Pair Ethernet

New IEEE 802.3 standards and technologies deliver power and data over a single pair of wires to address the challenges of ‘operational technology” (OT) automation applications and simplify OT networks. This talk will explore some of the unique features and reasons for Single Pair Ethernet’s growing adoption in the OT space leveraging modern technology to revisit core Ethernet features and speeds suitable for automation and control applications.

White Paper: Single Pair Ethernet – The network infrastructure for Industry 4.0

Experts consider Single Pair Ethernet to be the next generation of communication architecture in automation. The concept behind it is essentially an extension of the Ethernet to the sensor, that is wherever “tracks” (in the literal sense) rather than data highways are needed in every inch of space within the plant – it is compact, flexible and offers extensive reach.
