T1 Industrial

Harting Ltd Stand: 5-G70/DAC

Experts have suggested that Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) will be one of the technological cornerstones that helps to shape the success of the IIoT. SPE, delivered via HARTING’s T1 Industrial connector, allows equipment to connect via end-to-end IP-based communications right up into the field level.

Thanks to the space-saving and weight reduction benefits achieved by the move to a single pair of wires, the compact T1 can be easily incorporated into smaller products and Ethernet interfaces can be designed onto simple sensors, cameras, reading/ID devices or similar miniaturised equipment.

Furthermore, by reducing the amount of copper wiring required, the T1 delivers weight savings of 1.6 kg for every 100 metres of cable used.

For maximum flexibility, 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.

As sensors, actuators, and network nodes can be networked and supplied with power via the T1, there are applications in automation technology, robotics, machinery, and plant manufacturing. Other potential uses being explored include traffic control, intelligent lighting, smart farming and mobile machinery.
