Update on advanced physical layer for Industrial Ethernet

ORGANIZATIONS ARE COOPERATING to promote developments for Industrial Ethernet to expand use of EtherNet/IP, HART-IP and PROFINET into hazardous locations in the process industry.

FieldComm Group, ODVA and PI (Pro bus & Pro net International) provided an update on the current status of technology and standards for an advanced physical layer for Industrial Ethernet that will be suitable for use in demanding applications in process instrumentation, commonly referred to as "APL." The briefing explained industry activities and the projected timeline to realize an advanced physical layer for Industrial Ethernet for use with process automation field devices.

The organizations are seeking to leverage the work currently underway in the IEEE 802.3cg Task Force, which is developing amendments to the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard for an Ethernet physical layer operating at 10 Mb/s over single-pair cable with power delivery, and additional developments being done by the suppliers to define the requirements and develop the necessary technology to achieve an Industrial Ethernet suitable for use in hazardous locations up to Zone 0, Division 1.

News from ODVA.
