The SmartWire-DT panel wiring system by Eaton is receiving new connectivity options. Courtesy: EatonEaton is expanding connectivity options for the SmartWire-DT panel wiring system. The SmartWire-DT system, which replaces numerous wires used to connect motor control components with a single cable, is now available to North American customers with Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP, in addition to PROFIBUS-DP and CANopen. This added flexibility allows the SmartWire-DT system to more easily integrate with original equipment manufacturers’ preferred industrial networks. The SmartWire-DT panel wiring solution uses an eight-conductor, flat cable located in the control cabinet to connect motor starters, pushbutton actuators, and indicator lights. The start of the system is a SmartWire-DT gateway, which establishes the connection to standard programmable logic controller (PLC) fieldbuses, now including Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP, as well as PROFIBUS-DP and CANopen.
