Tinley Park, Ill., May 19, 2022 – Panduit Corp., a leading global provider of network infrastructure solutions, has released a new line of Single Pair Ethernet cables to support building automation and industrial automation technologies. The cables, which are available globally, can support Fieldbus controls today, but transition to Ethernet in the future.
In conjunction with the cable introduction, Panduit and Fluke Networks have released a new white paper, Evolving Building and Industrial Fieldbus to a Unified Ethernet Infrastructure.
