Single-pair Ethernet (SPE or 1000Base-T1) is integrated into new generations of automobiles, based on transmission standards (IEEE 802.3). 1000Base-T1 is designed to operate over a single twisted-pair copper cable supporting an effective data rate of 1 Gbit/sec in each direction simultaneously. LEMO offers two types of insulators 0B.511 (2 contacts) and 1B.512 (4 contacts + screen) compatible with Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) and Shielded Twisted Pair (STP).
The product is also available in a watertight version in the T series connector (for the automotive and industrial data transfer). Additionally, the role of SPE is to gain space and weight (with a simpler cable) also in other applications such as machine, robots and rail technology. The push-pull connectors are IP 50 protected and operate in a temperature range from -55°C to +250°C.
