Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) - now also for e-chainsPUR bus cable with Single Pair Ethernet technology
Single Pair Ethernet technology (SPE) is the key to smart industrial automation, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). For the first time, this enables uniform, space and cost-efficient Ethernet communication, including the "last metre" from the cloud via the switch cabinet to the machine.
Single Pair Ethernet describes the transmission of Ethernet (1000Base-T1) via only one pair of copper wires and enables both data transmission via Ethernet and simultaneous power supply (PoDL). This technological leap leads to a reduction of the diameter by approx. 25% compared to an ordinary Ethernet cable.
These significant savings in installation space and the associated weight reduction of SPE now open up completely new possibilities and fields of application for Industrial Ethernet.
