Analog Devices is now sampling the ADIN1100 10BASE-T1L PHY. ADIN1100 enables lower power, Ethernet connectivity on a single twisted pair cable > 1,200m with only 39mW of power consumption. With 10BASE-T1L and PROFINET connectivity, asset health insights are now more accessible, as the insights are now available across a converged IT/OT Ethernet network. 10BASE-T1L supports hazardous area use case applications (Intrinsically Safe Zone 0) for process automation deployments and is sometimes referred to as Ethernet-APL.
HELUKABEL has announced that select PROFINET and PROFIBUS cable products have earned a Power-Limited Tray Cable – Exposed Run (PLTC-ER) certification. The product specific cable types being upgraded are: PROFINET Type A, PROFINET Type B, and PROFIBUS DP. The original PLTC certification allowed the products to extend outside of the cable tray 6 ft (1.8 m). With the upgraded PLTC-ER certification, these products can extend up to 50 ft (15 m) outside of the cable tray without additional protection e.g. conduit, armoring, etc.
The GSX forked sensor from Leuze combines the two detection methods of ultrasonics and light in a single housing. Until now, Leuze offered two forked sensor models for this purpose: light and ultrasonics. A new version that combines light and ultrasonics is now available. The new GSX forked sensor features an IO-Link interface. This serves to easily, quickly, and economically configure the sensor. The interface can be used to enable remote teaching, or to lock the buttons, among other things.
The MAXREFDES177# IO-Link reference design from Maxim Integrated demonstrates the flexibility of the MAX22515 IO-Link transceiver, seamlessly configuring all modes of the MAX22000 software-configurable analog IO. This chipset provides flexibility with faster reconfiguration to reduce factory downtime. Software-selectable capabilities are combined and demonstrated in the MAXREFDES177# IO-Link reference design.
STMicroelectronics is bringing extra flexibility to IO-Link connections with the L6364 transceiver, which features dual communication channels that allow configurable output doubling for extra drive strength, in addition to a DC/DC converter and dual-mode UART. The L6364 supports IO-Link at COM2 (38.4 kbaud) and COM3 (230.4 kbaud) modes, as well as standard Single-Input/Output (SIO) communication.
Texas Instruments announced a new Ethernet PHY capable of transmitting 10-Mbps Ethernet signals up to 1.7 km through a single pair of twisted wires. The DP83TD510E helps designers implement a single communications network, from controller to edge node, that is capable of transmitting full-duplex data over a single pair of twisted wires. The DP83TD510E is designed for use in intrinsically safe Ethernet-APL systems.
