Mouser now stocks Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) Connectors from Phoenix Contact

Mouser Electronics now stocks single pair Ethernet (SPE) connectors from Phoenix Contact. The SPE connectors offer parallel, high-performance transmission of data and power via Ethernet through a single double wire and power over data line (PoDL).

SPE connectors enable uniform, Ethernet-based communication from the sensor to the cloud and feature key technology for Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This new network technology makes consistent IP communication and power supply possible, even within complex industrial applications or in IoT solutions. The series offers flexibility with ranges of up to 1,000 meters and data transmission rates of up to 1 Gbps.

SPE utilizes new fields of application and enables smart device communication. Because of its transmission properties, even across long distances, the SPE series supports future-proof network communication. Following the trend of resource-conserving, miniaturized devices, SPE offers more space for electronics, thanks to space-saving cables.

Phoenix Contact is a founding member of the Single Pair Ethernet System Alliance. This alliance of leading technology companies aims to promote the use of SPE technology in industry and establish uniform standards. The SPE connectors meet IEC 63171-2 and -5 standards and are suitable for applications such as building and industrial automation, robotics, railway industry, and lighting.
