Ethernet-APL White Paper

Description:

 

Ethernet with an Advanced Physical Layer (Ethernet-APL) will enable long cable lengths and explosion protection via intrinsic safety with communication and power over two wires. Based on IEEE and IEC standards, Ethernet-APL supports any Ethernet-based automation protocol including PROFINET and will develop into a single, long-term stable technology for process industries. This white paper covers the business environment, technical specifications, implications for different user types, and the development status of Ethernet-APL.
