What exactly is 10BASE-T1L, what advantages does this technology offer, and why is it a new standard? What Does 10BASE-T1L mean? Can I also implement the power supply to the devices via the two wires? Learn the basics and more in this article.
While fieldbus wiring has become decentralized, power supply wiring has stuck to the central wiring approach. New standards such as «M12-Power» now allow the power supply to follow the network wiring. This structured wiring for power and bus can be well described as «Power follows Bus».
IO-Link is enjoying increasing popularity, with demand for the communications standard growing rapidly, especially in the food & beverage industry and other process control related industries. The fieldbus-independent technology for point-to-point communication is easy to use and cost-effective.
Admittedly, the creation of installation guidelines seems tedious and dry at first glance, but it’s rewarded in day-to-day practice. Users benefit from clear specifications on the installation of PI technologies.
