Managed SPE switches Consistent Ethernet communication from control level to field level
Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) enables consistent IP-based communication from the sensor to the cloud. Ethernet data is transmitted via a single pair of wires. This ensures the space-saving and easy connection of sensors and actuators from the field level. In addition to data transmission, the two-wire installation can also be used for simultaneous power supply to the end devices via PoDL – Power over Data Line.
With the managed SPE switches from Phoenix Contact, you can integrate modern sensors with a single pair Ethernet interface into the existing Ethernet network. This allows you to provide direct access to data from the field level.
- Long distances up to 1000 m with SPE standard 10 BASE-T1L
- Subsystems or gateways are no longer needed, complexity is reduced
- Simple and space-saving installation with data transmission and power supply via a single pair of wires
- Universal use with all Ethernet and IP-based protocols
- In addition to the SPE functionalities, the managed switch has the proven FL SWITCH 2300 features
Single Pair Ethernet technology Direct integration of sensors and field devices
Single Pair Ethernet technology enables Ethernet-based data transmission via a single pair of wires. This enables the connection of sensors and actuators from the field level, without additional gateways or subsystems. On the same pair of wires, the sensors and actuators are supplied with power via Power over Data Line (PoDL). This state-of-the-art transmission technology ensures space-saving and cost-effective Ethernet communication from the sensor to the cloud.
The FL SWITCH 2303-8SP1 managed switch is ideal for an array of digitalization applications in building, factory, and process automation, and also for infrastructure (traffic, water/wastewater). The new single pair Ethernet technology can be integrated easily into an existing Ethernet infrastructure.
The managed SPE switches form the basis for a future-proof single pair Ethernet solution. Intelligent sensors can be integrated in a resource-saving and cost-effective manner. This eliminates the need for complex gateways and subsystems. The data from the field level is connected continuously to the Internet and the cloud.
