  • Ethernet Advanced Physical Layer (Ethernet-APL) enables data transmission via Ethernet up to the field level in hazardous environments of the process industry.
  • Fast and efficient transmission of large amounts of data via Ethernet at 10 Mbit/s for bridging long distances (trunk length up to 1000 m or spurs up to 200 m).
  • Ethernet-APL supports the "Intrinsically Safe" ignition protection type and is based on the 2-WISE (2-Wire Intrinsically Safe Ethernet) concept according to IEC TS 60079-47, thus achieving explosion protection technology with a high level of protection.
  • Power-over-Data-Line (PoDL)-capable line according to IEEE 802.3bu for simultaneous power and data supply of SPE terminals with low power requirements (up to 50 W).
  • Ideal protection against electromagnetic interference due to double shielding of aluminum-clad foil and copper braided shield with high coverage (SF/UTP).

Application range

  • Especially suitable for long transmission distances up to 1000 m according to IEC 61156-13.
  • For Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) applications 10Base-T1-L according to IEEE 802.3cg.
  • Especially for demanding applications in the process industry.
  • PLTC-ER approval for open wiring between cable tray and industrial machines/plants acc. to NEC 725.154 (D)
  • PVC outer sheath is resistant to acids and alkalis
