Together, the two companies aim to drive solutions that will define the infrastructure for SPE. There are several SPE standards in IEEE 802.3 covering Ethernet technology for LANs and WANs. The latest, 802.3cg 10Base-T1, for distances up to 1 km, will be released in 2019. SPE allows for a single open, scalable Ethernet-based network within the automation system. This significantly reduces complexity, costs and enables to go beyond existing borders.
TE and Harting are inviting other companies to partner up to drive Single Pair Ethernet as the infrastructure solution for the fast growing IIoT market.
