Port Profile Specification Ethernet-APL



This document specifies port profiles for use in non-hazardous and hazardous areas, with and  without power. Ethernet-APL intrinsically safe profiles simplify the examination of the  interconnection of different Ethernet-APL ports. Most common industrial rated connectors for use in process industries are part of this specification. A multi-length cable category system maintains communication integrity, while permitting cable constructions optimized for specific applications or environmental ratings.
