Panduit is pleased to announce the approval of the IEC 63171-1 (Variant 1) Single Pair Ethernet connector style by ISO IEC SC48B, the standards body that helps with international standardization of low voltage connectors.
This newly standardized Single Pair Ethernet connector design will be key to supporting the explosion of Ethernet connectivity into edge devices within a broad range of applications including industrial controls, building automation systems and related sub-systems that can take advantage of structured cabling.
The connector supports shielded and unshielded variants and has been proven to show high resistance to electromagnetic interference. Those unfamiliar with low voltage electronics will find the connector design easy to install, enabling a sensible migration path towards Ethernet for IoT and Industry 4.0.
Mike Vermeer, Engineering Development Strategy Manager at Panduit, recently published a blog on the Ethernet Alliance website on how Single Pair Ethernet expands automation system possibility. Read the “Reducing the barriers to Anything is Possible” blog post to learn more about Single Pair Ethernet and how it reduces the barriers to adoption of ethernet for devices that need both power and limited communications.
