TINLEY PARK, Ill. — (August 31, 2021) — Panduit, a global leader in innovative electrical and network infrastructure solutions, was recognized today with five Cabling Innovators Awards in the 2021 competition. Cabling Installation & Maintenance bestows the Innovators Awards annually to the best products and projects in the industry.
Panduit received five awards in total, including a Platinum honor for Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) solution, a seamless single protocol network from application edge to the cloud. SPE simplifies network design and operation, eliminating the support and translation of legacy network protocols used in OT networks.
“With the emergence of Single Pair Ethernet technology built for OT applications, we expect to see accelerating growth in wired Ethernet in place of fieldbus and analog communications,” states Mike Vermeer, Engineering Development Strategy Manager. “Panduit is grateful to be recognized for our efforts to bring this technology to market, and we are excited for the possibilities this brings to intelligent buildings, smart factories and Industry 4.0.”
Panduit also received two Gold awards and two Silver awards:
• FlexFusion™ Cabinet (Gold Honoree) - Offers a unique universal platform for all types of data centers and servicing needs including Hyperscale, Edge and Colocation. The cabinet is built with best-in-class weight load of 3,500 lbs., doors with maximum air flow of 80%, and custom configurations to meet network needs.
• PanZone® TrueEdge™ Wall Mount Enclosure (Gold Honoree) - With 0 RU vertical patching, the enclosure’s mounting method minimizes network infrastructure investment by providing a solution to eliminate a rack or cabinet.
• TX6A™ FieldCord™ Connectors (Silver Honoree) - Enable connection to devices in the most confined cable routing paths and has the capability to be re-terminated up to 20 times with no additional parts.
• Adjustable Depth 4-Post Racks (Silver Honoree) - Combines the stability of a cabinet with the accessibility of an open rack to provide users with maximum flexibility when designing the network layout.
