Created by PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI), PROFINET is one of the most popular Industrial Ethernet protocols. The most recent PROFINET Cabling and Interconnection Technology Guideline has recently designated the ix Industrial mating face as a new standard for Ethernet applications. Published in June 2021, Version 5.0 of the PROFINET Guideline offers updated standards for PROFINET-compliant cabling use in industrial environments. The ix Industrial interface is a vital component in the SPC (Specific Passive Components) section for Ethernet transmission. Using the ix Industrial connector, manufacturers of PROFINET-compliant devices can create smaller, more compact devices to save valuable installation space in the control cabinet.
The importance of reliable communication and data exchange between industrial equipment has increased with Industry 4.0. Developed for use in industrial automation and manufacturing environments, the rugged ix Series combines high-speed performance and a compact design with high reliability and design flexibility. With an innovative design that is ideal for daisy-chaining applications, the space-saving ix Series connector can facilitate a significant size reduction of industrial machine vision modules.
