M8 cabling solutions for Single Pair Ethernet

M8 cabling solutions for Single Pair Ethernet  

M8 cabling solutions for Single Pair Ethernet

Ethernet is the leading communications protocol for local data networks (LAN). With the advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE), this established protocol is now also moving down to the final automation levels. The single-pair, standardized data cabling transmits data at speeds up to 1 Gbps and power up to 60 W easily over a range of up to 1,000 m. Compact M8 connectors in male and female versions allow easy integration into conventional sensors, and you can also use them the realize flying leads. SPE therefore forms the basis for future-proof networking, from the sensor right through to the cloud.

M12 PUSH-PULL – the new standard for factory automation

M12 connectors with push-pull fast-locking system  

M12 connectors with push-pull fast-locking system

M12 push-pull connectors lock into place conveniently and reliably simply by plugging them in. The fast-locking system allows easy and tool-free device connections, particularly in tight spaces and in applications with a high cabling density. The male and female versions allow you to connect sensors easily and to establish flying leads in the field. Moreover, the cross-manufacturer connection compatibility and easy device integration ensure superior availability anywhere in the world.
