Infrastructure for Single Pair Ethernet


Infrastructure for Single Pair Ethernet

Hirose Electric Co. Ltd., Tokyo, and the Harting Technology Group have entered into an agreement to jointly develop new standardised products and market a connection technology system for Single Pair Ethernet (SPE).

The joint development in the area of Single Pair Ethernet expands the successful technology partnership of both companies,” says Hirose President Kazunori Ishii. The partnership started in autumn 2016, when Hirose and Harting jointly launched the ix Industrial interface. “The ix Industrial interface has been a great success and a popular choice for numerous users in miniaturised applications for four-pair Ethernet,” says Harting CEO Philip Harting.

In order to make the new connection technology for Single Pair Ethernet a success, the technology partnership between Ostwestfalen-Lippe and Tokyo is expanding to achieve an end-to-end infrastructure which consists of a component portfolio including connectors, sockets, cables and cable sets. Both companies are striving to successfully position the technology in standards committees. “In addition to establishing a uniform interface, the standardisation of all other aspects is actively being pursued and is seen as the basis for a comprehensive SPE ecosystem,” says Ralf Klein, Managing Director Harting Electronics.

Hirose and Harting are working closely with the standards committee for single-pair cabling and the components required on the device side, as well as the necessary transmission standards such as IEEE802.3 BASE-T1. A complete infrastructure for IIoT based on Ethernet can be created with the help of this solid base. The goal of this alliance  is a consistent and reliable Single Pair Ethernet infrastructure that brings the IIoT to life.
