Trio join to present single-pair Ethernet solutions
Mouser Electronics has worked with Texas Instruments (TI) and Phoenix Contact to present a new solutions page dedicated to single-pair Ethernet (SPE) technology.
With Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Ethernet is the undisputed network architecture on the factory floor, and serves as the primary means of connecting automation systems to the network.
SPE technology extends Ethernet through a standardised connectivity interface and provides high-performance transmission of data and power through a single-wire pair to field-level sensor and actuator devices.
The new SPE solutions page provides an engaging assortment of videos, blog posts, and an on-demand webinar, supplemented by product information on key TI and Phoenix Contact products.
TI’s DP83TD510E Ethernet IC offers extremely low power consumption and cable reach of 2,000 meters for both 1.0 Vpp and 2.4 Vpp modes.
The IEEE 802.3cg 10BASE-T1L-compliant transceiver eliminates the need for additional protocols, gateways and cables for higher-bandwidth communications, allowing designers to extend the reach of their industrial communications and automation applications without increasing cabling costs or system weight.
Phoenix Contact SPE connectors offer an alternative to classic serial bus systems for efficient, consistent data transmission in factory and process automation.
They meet IEC 63171-2 and -5 standards and are suitable for applications such as building and industrial automation, robotics, railway industry, and lighting.
Phoenix Contact is a founding member of the Single Pair Ethernet System Alliance.
This alliance of leading technology companies aims to promote the use of SPE technology in industry and establish uniform standards.
