Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) in IIoT and BIoT Environments – a Backwards Compatibility Study

What should we do regarding preparations for the employment of Single Pair Ethernet? Can we benefit from Single Pair Ethernet networks right now? Is it possible to make a smooth transition from existing legacy technologies to the bright future ahead?

In this whitepaper, our Working Group Cables investigates how new Single Pair Ethernet cables can be used to carry legacy bus protocols (Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus PA and PB, RS485, BacNet, Modbus, Canbus) and to what extent old cables are able to function within future SPE communication networks.

Immunity from Interference for SPE in Noisy Environments

SPE can be deployed in noisy environments, where capacitive coupling and Common-Mode Choke (CMC) front-end circuits may not offer sufficient CMR to protect the link. Communication drop-outs or complete signal blockage may occur due to interference that is readily found in noisy environments. In this paper we consider the issue with some significant conclusions…


OMNIMATE® Data Ethernet-APL: Reliably connecting field devices in the process industry

Ethernet-compatible interfaces are increasingly needed to access data from the field via IIoT. For the process industry the new technology Ethernet-APL now allows direct access down to the field and device level via an internationally standardized two-wire solution. With this new whitepaper you learn more about the APL technology, possible solutions and benefits.
