TE Connectivity – Single Pair Ethernet (SPE)

TE Connectivity - Single Pair Ethernet (SPE)

Single Pair Ethernet enables high speed communication up to 1 Gb/s in a cost-effective solution that reduces complexity, space and weight by transmitting over two wires rather than four of eight. In robotics and industrial applications, this weight reduction enables faster movements and lowered energy consumption while enabling data and power up to 50W over a single twisted pair. TE Connectivity is a proud founding partner in the Industrial Partner Network who is driving the adoption of Single Pair Ethernet technology.
