The Path to 10BASE-T1L and Gigabit TSN Connectivity
The Path to 10BASE-T1L and gigabit Ethernet technology communications infrastructure is the backbone of the connected enterprise vision and presents many key opportunities on the path to Industry 4.0. As networks pivot from legacy fieldbus and 4 mA to 20 mA connectivity to Industrial Ethernet, multiple challenges emerge within the design and implementation phases. Developing future-proofed, robust, and scalable Industrial Ethernet solutions that can support emerging technology like 10BASE-T1L, single pair Ethernet, time sensitive networking or industry-leading low latency gigabit solutions is a time consuming and resource intensive task. It necessitates a pivot in skillsets and knowledge base to architect systems that ensure data integration, synchronization, and system interoperability. There is, however, a trusted partner who can help you navigate this task, as well as assist in the design and development of seamless, robust Ethernet solutions: Analog Devices.

New Data, New Insights with 10BASE-T1L Technology from ADI Chronous
Long reach, single-pair Ethernet, 10BASE-T1L physical layer devices are proving a game changer on the road to realizing the vision of seamless connectivity. By extending Ethernet connectivity to edge nodes in remote and distant locations, this technology is enabling new data streams, additional process variables, and auxiliary measurements to be communicated. The IEEE 802.3cg™-2019 standard governs 10BASE-T1L connectivity. It is a single-pair Ethernet (SPE) media standard, providing for 10 megabits per second communication and it enables both power and data over single twisted pair cabling up to 1 km. 10BASE-T1L connectivity promises to extend the benefits of IIoT to the remote corners of factories, building and process plants, and even into hazardous locations where sensors and other endpoints had, until now, limited connectivity.
Delivering Trusted Data in Key Application Areas
ADI Chronous solutions are designed and verified for robust operation in harsh industrial environments and offer effective security at each node point within a system. ADI’s understanding of network architectures coupled with its application knowledge of how data is collected, processed, and used throughout an operation all serve to inform the security and robust features present in the ADI Chronous offerings. These features make ADI Chronous an ideal choice for a number of markets.
Adding edge connectivity to remote and hazardous locations within the process industry is enabled by the ADI Chronous portfolio of ultra low power, robust 10BASE-T1L solutions. From field switches to field instruments, ADI has the technology to replace legacy 4-20mA or field bus connectivity solutions quickly and simply.
Factory Automation and Robotics
Deterministic networks and gigabit performance are a requirement of future factory automation, robotics, and motion control systems. ADI’s Chronous enables synchronization across the boundary of the network into the application level, improving machining and production accuracy.
10BASE-T1L technology from the ADI Chronous portfolio enables more sensor nodes to be deployed in building, giving greater control of building parameters and driving efficiencies. Address the requirements of existing and future intelligent buildings, by providing reliable, low power ethernet to the edge.
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) with ADI Chronous
ADI Chronous solutions are designed to address the requirements of time sensitive networking (TSN) and deterministic Ethernet. Time sensitive networking refers to a group of IEEE 802.1™ and IEEE 802.3™ standards developed to provide deterministic performance within standard Ethernet. It is a universal standard being developed at an industry level to eliminate interoperability problems between protocols. It allows current protocols to share networks and provide reliable deterministic communication and scalability across applications, bandwidths, and enterprises all the way to the edge node. Given that the TSN standard is nearly finalized, now is the time to practically deploy standard Ethernet (with the TSN extensions) in real-time, mission critical applications. New hardware and software will be required that can support all these TSN features and ADI Chronous is the ideal solution for scalable, robust solutions that are designed for ease of deployment.
