The SmartWire-DT system automates, simplifies and expedites connecting control panel components, establishing a new level of efficiency, accuracy and reliability. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.Eaton has expanded the connectivity options for the SmartWire-DT panel wiring system, designed to transform the way customers build control panels. Intended to replace numerous control wires with one cable, the SmartWire-DT system now is available with an Ethernet gateway that is suitable for EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP fieldbuses. This added capability allows the SmartWire-DT system to easily integrate with programmable logic controller (PLC) systems on EtherNet/IP one of North America's most popular control fieldbuses.

 

With the addition of EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP connectivity, the SmartWire-DT system can now connect to a wide range of popular PLCs. 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.
