The increasing level of automation and digitalisation in industrial systems calls for the quick and future-proof development of existing Ethernet cabling.
For sensors and local, modular control units in particular, conventional cabling concepts are no longer able to meet the new requirements with regard to space requirements and installation effort.
Weidmüller and partners from the field of electrical connectivity all rely on the innovative single pair Ethernet technology when developing new industry standards. Instead of two or four pairs of wires, single pair Ethernet cabling requires just one pair of wires for the transmission of data and power.

The simple structure and the associated lower weight and reduced space requirements and installation effort offer a wide range of benefits both in plant manufacturing and in modern building infrastructures. Single pair Ethernet allows for the uniform connection of a range of different end devices – from the building technology through to the sensors in the field.

When developing new standards, the most important task is to establish a uniform and application-independent plug-in-connector. Together with other manufacturers, Weidmüller is supporting the currently submitted standardisation variants in accordance with IEC 63171-2 for IP20 and IEC 63171-5 for IP67. At the same time, solutions are also being developed to enable 1-pair cabling structures to be easily integrated into existing systems both with RJ45 and round-plug interfaces.
In our white paper, we provided you with a summary of the state of development as well as the current standard proposals in accordance with IEC 63171-2 and IEC 63171-5. We also give detailed insights into the possibilities created by the new technologies. Find out, for example, how to use "cable sharing" to set up 4-pair cabling structures with single pair Ethernet systems in addition to just the 1-pair cabling structure.
