Ethernet-APL Technical Specifications
Ethernet-APL is an enhanced physical layer for single-pair Ethernet (SPE) based on 10BASE-T1L. It communicates via a cable length of up to 1000 meters at 10 MBit/s, full-duplex, which is more than 300 times faster than current technologies, such as HART or H1 fieldbus. It is the logical extension for Ethernet and provides the attributes required for reliable operation in the field of a process plant.
Ethernet-APL is a physical layer that will be able to support Ethernet/IP, HART-IP, OPC-UA, PROFINET, or any other higher-level protocol. Read more…
