T1 Industrial Interface
Published by : Industrial Automation
All T1 Industrial components for IIoT infrastructure will be on show for the first time ever at Hannover Messe 2020.
Published on 23 January 2020, IEC 63171-6 created the basis for all future IIoT networks – and it hasn’t changed. This doesn’t mean that things have stood still, but that there has been ultimate agreement over a market-wide standard for SPE infrastructure, meaning investment security for users. On this basis, a comprehensive portfolio can be developed for the single-pair Ethernet market. Serial parts for the IP20 version of the T1 Industrial interface in the field assembly format in AWG 28-22 and overmoulded AWG 28-22 will be on show for the first time ever at HANNOVER MESSE. HARTING is also presenting the corresponding device socket for a robust and standardised SPE connection with the device. Device developers will get to see the first design-in projects at the fair.
The T1 Industrial from HARTING supplies both data and power across a single pair of wires in an IEC 63171-6 industry-standardised industrial interface for Single Pair Ethernet (SPE). The T1 delivers 1GBit/s for shorter distances, 10Mbit/s for long distances and meets all environmental requirements from IP20 to IP65/67.
Up until now, industrial Ethernet has come with restrictions as it has only been able to reach the control level before it needs to switch to BUS systems via gateways. SPE, via the T1, allows equipment to connect via end-to-end IP-based communications right up into the field level. This means Ethernet interfaces can be integrated onto simple sensors, cameras, reading/ID devices or similar equipment. This development offers users a new level of consistency and brings Ethernet from the cloud to every sensor, thus enabling Integrated Industry.
In addition, the T1 mating face can be integrated into standard housing forms as required. As the product family expands there will be interfaces in M8 and M12 housings, as well as other designs. HARTING not only has connectors and other components in mind but a complete Single Pair Ethernet ecosystem which will deliver higher bandwidth and bigger loads, right down to the printed circuit board.
Perhaps the most innovative aspects of the T1 Industrial are the space-saving and weight reduction benefits attained by the move to a single pair of wires.
