The single-pair Ethernet (SPE) technology offers completely new opportunities to reliably and quickly transfer the immense data streams even in the smallest area of the machine. For the movement in the energy chain poses Igus the first SPE "Chainflex "line in front. Using only one wire pair reduces the outside diameter by 25%.
The Chainflex CFBUS.PUR.042 single-pair Ethernet cable was specially developed for moving, long-lasting use in the energy chain. Because the single-pair Ethernet line uses only one pair of wires instead of the usual four, this reduces the data rate to transfer rates from 10 MBit / s to 1 GBit / s. However, higher speed is not necessary in many applications. Instead, reducing the wire count of the CFBUS.PUR.042 allows for a smaller 25% outer diameter. It is now at the level of an initiator line.
The new cable is designed precisely for the T1 connector interface, which was newly developed specifically for SPE. As a result, the durable screen is handed over reliably and thus high electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is present. The combination of cable and plug is extremely robust: Igus uses a highly abrasion-resistant, notched PUR sheath and the connector robust metal latches with PCB socket.
Reducing the size of the cable and connector creates additional space even in the smallest e-chain series. The SPE technology is thus an alternative to classic serial bus systems in the automotive industry, railway technology or industrial robots. The user does not have to do without quality. The oil-resistant and flame-retardant CFBUS.PUR.042 has been extensively tested in the 3800 m² Igus test laboratory. As with all of its 1300 line coverage, the user is guaranteed a guaranteed 10 million double strokes and 36 months even when calculating the SPE line.
