The Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) connectors from Phoenix Contact offer high-performance data transmission with simultaneous power supply to end devices. If you want to invest in your building cabling or in your industrial application in a future-oriented and smart way, then Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is exactly the right solution.
Advantages of Single Pair Ethernet:
In addition, two single pair Ethernet ports can be installed in the IP20 variant in the size of the conventional RJ45 connector. Thus, you double the port density on your devices.
The Phoenix Contact Group has signed a development agreement with TE Connectivity to advance joint development in this area. This will involve new SPE-M12 hybrid connectors according to IEC 63171-7. This IEC standard specifies hybrid interfaces with SPE and power contacts. First series products on coding 2 (2 x 8A / 63V DC) are expected for the beginning of 2023.
Phoenix Contact's connectors have been awarded the "Best of Industry Award 2021".
The mating face M1 I1 C1 E1 according to IEC 63171-2 was developed for building cabling. This mating face enables up to four times as many devices to be connected with existing passive infrastructure. This is often used for office buildings.
For industrial applications, the M2/3 I2/3 C2/3 E2/3 mating face to IEC 63171-5 has become established, which is also suitable for harsh field use. The mating face can be integrated into all standardized connector variants available on the market.
The abbreviation MICE describes the external conditions of an Ethernet interface.
M = Mechanical robustness
I = IP properties
C = Chemical and climatic resistance
E = Electromagnetic safety
