To make the new connection technology for Single Pair Ethernet a success, the technology partnership is pursuing the systematic expansion of SPE to achieve an end-to-end, complete infrastructure. This infrastructure consists of a portfolio of connectors, sockets, cables and cable sets on the component side. In addition, both partner companies are endeavouring to successfully position the technology in user groups. “As well as establishing a uniform mating face, the standardisation of all other aspects is actively being pursued and is seen as the basis for a comprehensive SPE ecosystem,” says Ralf Klein, Managing Director HARTING Electronics.
HARTING and HIROSE will keep a close eye on standards for single-pair cabling and the components required on the device side, as well as the necessary transmission standards such as IEEE802.3 BASE-T1. A complete infrastructure for IIoT based on Ethernet can be created with the help of this solid base.
The goal of this proven alliance of two technology partners is a consistent and reliable Single Pair Ethernet infrastructure that brings the IIoT to life. Whether in transportation, robotics, energy or industrial automation, the T1 Industrial from HIROSE and HARTING gives users a comprehensive infrastructure to take a successful step on the way to the Internet of Things.
