HARTING Releases T1 Industrial, Industrial Connector

August 12, 2020 Perry Cohen

HARTING launched the T1 industrial connector, which the company calls the standard mating face for Industrial Single Pair Ethernet. It can communicate across industrial ethernet protocols such as ethernet/IP, Profinet, and EtherCAT, among others, with a single twisted pair of wires rather than using four or eight wires.

The T1 utilizes power-over-data-line (PoDL) technology to provide communication, voltage, and amperage needed to power the device.

The connector reduces the number of connections on a device, which eliminates the need for external power. Additionally, devices on a plant floor, traditionally communicating over fieldbus protocols, can join the same IP-based network as the others. This communication enables peer-to-peer communication, open-loop feedback of all devices, and smart functionality from the main control room to the device.

The new connector’s mating face is standardized according to IEC 63171-6 (formerly IEC 61076-3-125) and, it meets IEEE 802.3 requirements for Single Pair Ethernet.
