 SPE Explained - What Is 10BASE-T1L Single Pair Ethernet?

What Is 10BASE-T1L Single Pair Ethernet?

As opposed to standard ethernet, with either two or four twisted pairs, single pair ethernet uses two copper wires.

Just Two Wires for Data and Power Transmission

Just Two Wires for Data and Power Transmission

The single, twisted-pair cable carries power to enable the powering of remote sensors and actuators and also both transmits and receives data.

Thin Cable Diameter = Less Weight

Thin Cable Diameter

The thinner cable diameter offers less weight which translates to easier mobility, less space, faster installation, and lower costs.

 Smaller, Simplified Connector

Smaller. Simplified Connector

The smaller connector footprint takes up less space on a PCB, simplifies design, and shows increased connector stability.

 Increased Range & Speed

Increased Range

Unlike four-pair cable which has a distance limitation of 100 meters, 10BASE-T1L SPE offers 1000-meters.

Easier Sensor Integration

Easier Sensor Integration

Simplifies communication from sensor to local server or cloud and works without additional gateways or interfaces.
