spe Competence

Cables for a wide range of Single Pair Ethernet applications

With our SPE product range, we offer a solution standardized according to IEC 61156-x for every application. This applies to trailing, torsion and robotic cables as well as special cables that combine Single Pair Ethernet with various other elements to form hybrid cables. Our solutions include the two basic types with 22 AWG and 26 AWG conductors. The 22 AWG variant is characterised by exceptionally good loss. The cable with 26 AWG is particularly suitable if little space is available for the cable.


Features of SPE cables:

•    Electrical power up to 1 GBit/s at 600MHz
•    Data transmission up to 40 meters (1 GBit/s) and up to 1000 m (10 MBit/s)
•    Trailing- and torsion resistant
•    Oil resistant
•    Designed for harsh industrial environments 
•    PoDL (Power over Data Line) support
•    Available in various jacket materials:  PUR, FRNC, PVC, FEP
•    UL and  CSA / CPR approvals
