The ODU MINI-SNAP SPE enables Ethernet connection via a single twisted-pair of copper cables, with voltage supply of terminal devices via PoDL [Power over Data Line].
The simpler design of this new generation of connectors gives both weight and space reductions for designers and developers.
1000BASE-T1 (IEEE 802.3bp)
1000BASE-T1 (IEEE 802.3bw)
10BASE-T1 (IEEE 802.3cq)
Maximum bridgeable distances of the standards vary between 15.40 & 1,000 metres.
SPE is being introduced into new automotive designs, replacing CAN and other bus systems. In future, communication, control & security functions will be managed uniformly via Ethernet.
The field of industrial automation is also keen to benefit from this, with SPE allowing the barrier-free connection of devices, sensor & actuator technology and a great deal more.
SPE is available for the ODU MINI-SNAP series L / K and for the ODU-MAC series.
