Analog Devices has introduced the Single-pair Power over Ethernet (SPoE) solutions that enable greater levels of intelligence into smart buildings.
Smartness of a device refers to its versatility, speed and connectivity with the world. For a system or a device to be called “Smart” it must qualify for these characteristics. But people demand them to be compact as well. Which was not possible for some applications like home and industry automation. To automate home and industrial systems within a network, it consumed tonnes of connection equipment.
Analog Devices has introduced a solution to this problem. They have introduced the world’s first Single-pair Power over Ethernet (SPoE) Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) and Power Device (PD) solutions that help customers drive greater levels of intelligence into smart buildings, factory automation, and other applications at the edge of traditional networks. The new offerings facilitate powered, last-mile connectivity for factory and building automation through real-time power management, telemetry, extremely low standby power consumption, and ease of installation.
The new LTC4296-1 and LTC9111, solves the problem of providing power and data to devices, even in remote, difficult to access endpoint locations. These devices help endpoint applications to be seamlessly powered and accessed across the network and used to assess local factors such as asset health, environmental conditions, security metrics, and more. The SPoE augments Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) to provide more reliable, fault-tolerant, and interoperable point-to-point power solutions. It delivers power ranging up to 52W. Both products are 802.3cg compliant and support Serial Communication Classification Protocol (SCCP).
They reduce reliance on localized power and batteries by using a single twisted pair of Ethernet cables to provide efficient, reliable, easily installed power at reduced size and weight. Combined with ADI Chronous ADIN1100 and ADIN1110 10BASE-T1L, Industrial Ethernet solutions, customers can reliably transfer both power and data over one kilometer which is a significant increase from previous Ethernet standards.
