More efficient and sustainable building management

Long Reach Ethernet

Analog Devices, (ADI) has introduced a complete 10BASE-T1L Ethernet solution designed for building automation networks. Digital, connected automation equipment enables holistic building management ranging from heating ventilation and air conditioning to occupancy comfort.

The company says the new ADIN2111 adds Long Reach Ethernet connectivity to controllers, sensors, and actuators, delivering insights for more efficient and sustainable building management. Ideally suited for use within small, power-constrained edge devices, the ADIN2111 can provide up to 50% power consumption savings and up to 75% in PCB real estate versus discrete implementations.

The ADIN2111 is designed for daisy chaining data in line and ring networks utilising existing deployed single twisted pair cabling infrastructure within buildings, shrinking retrofitting costs. The enhanced diagnostic features reduce commissioning, installation, and system downtime by troubleshooting problems quickly and effectively utilising the real time information on link quality and fault location provided. Compliant to the IEEE 802.3cg standard, this solution enables Ethernet connectivity over 1.7km of cabling, supports ring redundancy and soft real time protocols like Modbus/TCP, BACnet/IP and KNX.
