Mating face communicates across common industrial Ethernet protocols
HARTING T1 Industrial connector delivers the standard mating face for Industrial Single Pair Ethernet and can accomplish communication across the common industrial Ethernet protocols (Ethernet/IP, Profinet, EtherCAT, and others) with a single twisted pair of wires instead of four or eight wires. Device utilizes power-over-data-line (PoDL) technology to bring communication, voltage, and amperage needed to power the device. Device reduces the number of connections required, eliminating the need for an external power supply, and the devices on the plant floor that traditionally communicate over Fieldbus protocols can join the same IP-based network as the other devices. This enables peer-to-peer communication, open-loop feedback of all devices, and smart functionality from the main control room to the device.
