The networking of industrial plant components with Ethernet protocols has become firmly established and is being continuously further developed. Our Industrial Ethernet connectors with IP20 to IP67 and inserts for copper and fibre-optic cables are usable for any application. Due to the tool-free wiring possibilities they reduce the assembly time in the field drastically. Given their transmission speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s, you have plenty of reserve capacity for future applications.
Our product portfolio includes all relevant IEC Industrial Ethernet connectors for industrial applications in IP20 to IP67.
Due to the easy insulation displacement technology, our RJ45 connectors can be assembled in no time and without any special tools.
The connectors of our innovative STEADYTEC® series meet the high requirements of worldwide standardization at 100 percent.
Single Pair Ethernet will be the next generation of communication architecture for the Industrial IOT. The concept of Ethernet right down to the sensors promises a seamless connection from the sensor to the cloud.
The increasing level of automation and digitalization 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.
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 standardization 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.
The simple structure and the associated lower weight, 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.
