Certification of the GHN.SOM.PLC module, a powerful small form factor and retrofit solution from member company Teleconnect, ensures high performance of IIoT and connected devices through MIMO-enabled powerline communication.

“Machine-to-machine communication and process automation require much more stable, robust and fast connectivity than ever before to operate and operate effectively without any downtime.

Increasing productivity, efficiency, and security will require strong control, self-healing capabilities, and real-time synchronization of industrial devices. “This certification marks an exciting new milestone in the use of G.hn IIoT, including autonomous mobile robots, smart sensors, AR / VR, smart lifting, smart parking system control, smart building entrance door control, safety control and factory automation. . G.hn technology modules are now embedded in smart manufacturing infrastructure networks to provide much-needed resilience to high-performance industrial plants. “

G.hn works seamlessly through existing cables to provide two-way, high-bandwidth and low-latency connections suitable for real-time traffic management, including environmental sensors and video surveillance. The HomeGrid Forum recently formed a new task force, with Vice President Alexander Schaefer, Head of Sales and Philip Ritz, Head of R&D, Teleconnect, to run installations for G.hn Innovation and IIoT applications.

Schäfer says: “G.hn has significantly increased industrial networks from powerline to telephone wiring and cox cable, with adaptive data rates of up to 1.8 Gbps across various media. It has also proven to be the most reliable backbone for visible light communication like LiFi. Now, GHN.SOM.PLC’s certification means that the industry can be confident about the module’s interoperability with other G.hn chipsets and devices. “

HomeGrid Forum G.hn Testing ensures that commercially available solutions comply with ITU-T G.hn standards and the interoperability and performance requirements set out in HomeGrid Forum Certification Test plans.

Rietzsch emphasized: “Certification is a significant milestone because there is now a verified G.hn solution for the industrial environment that provides optimal in-class connectivity and robustness. With the newly formed Art IoT Task Force, this certificate launches a new G.hn solutions portfolio that opens up exciting opportunities for industry settings. Our goal is to help create a sustainable competitive advantage with most machines connected to improve efficiency and reduce costs. “
