R&M, the globally active Swiss developer and provider of high-end infrastructure solutions for data and communications networks, is industrializing its Single Pair Ethernet portfolio.

Due to demand, R&M is now providing the SPE cabling range in itscatalog. “The new transmission technology Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is completing the trial and demonstration phase. The market is showing enormous interest in the wide-ranging use of SPE, including in building automation. That’s why we decided to make our SPE product line commercially available with immediate effect,” says Matthias Gerber, R&M market manager LAN Cabling.

The range includes connectors, sockets, patch cords and installation cables compliant with the IEC 63171-1 standard. This SPE connection technology is recommended for building cabling by various standardization bodies (IEEE, ISO/IEC, TIA). The products can be combined with existing R&Mfreenet outlets and 19" panels for local data networks.

Shielded SPE socket for printed circuit boards In addition, R&M is the first manufacturer to release a Single Pair Ethernet socket for printed circuit boards (PCB) in accordance with IEC 63171-1. Device manufacturers can use this solder socket to create a pluggable SPE connection to the printed circuit board. R&M provides the necessary dimensional drawings for the Design-In.
