ARTICLES & WHITEPAPER
This informative article introduces possible use cases for Single Pair Ethernet and illustrates the advantages of SPE in case studies with exemplary test setups. Future users will get a better impression of the contribution SPE will make to the success of IIoT.
The whitepaper offers an introduction to SPE. It explains basic concepts, why SPE is perfectly suited for IIoT and which new industry standards are becoming important.
The whitepaper offers an introduction to SPE and answers frequently asked questions about Single Pair Ethernet.
Single- pair Ethernet in combination with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) and power over data lines enables an end-to-end Ethernet network from the sensor to the cloud usable anywhere space is limited and where the weight of cables and components plays a major role.
Single Pair Ethernet is the technology that perfectly meets the industry's new network technology requirements in the context of Industry 4.0 and IIoT. Central elements of the standard are the Single Pair Ethernet cables. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has defined and standardized the structure and the high electrical properties in the IEC 61156 series of standards. This application note describes the cable standardization and its design in detail.
In the hybrid SPE solution, the M8 hybrid connectors and the hybrid cables support a configuration structure consisting of an SPE data pair for data transmission (AWG 22 to AWG 26) combined with a separate power pair (AWG 18) for powering the devices. This application note describes this system in detail with important specifications.
The application note will shed some light on measurements on SPE cabling and will highlight why also in SPE cabling, cabling measurements are an important tool to ensure compliance to standards and a functional network.
The Application Note shows in a practical way how users succeed in integrating Single Pair Ethernet interfaces and PCB components. Key technical data provide a secure framework for the development of the next generation of industrial devices.
