As a member of the SPE Industrial Partner Network, AVX will be actively involved in the continuing development of single-pair Ethernet (SPE) standards and compatible connectivity products, and will also serve as an ambassador of the significant space- and weight-saving advantages that SPE offers for applications including industrial, process, and building automation systems, smart city networks, and transportation systems.
FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensor, control, and antenna solutions, has joined the SPE Industrial Partner Network, a global association of companies dedicated to promoting Single-Pair Ethernet technology as the basis for the rapid and effective expansion of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
SPE technology is currently capable of transmitting up to 60W of power and supporting data rates extending from 10Mb/s to 1Gb/s over distances up to 1,000 meters, which eliminates the need for additional power supplies and batteries in myriad connected devices including sensors, actuators, cameras, security systems, diagnostics, and robotics. In fact, SPE can streamline cabling requirements by as much as 75%, mitigating both total system cost and weight, as well as facilitate quicker and easier installation than traditional four-pair Ethernet. It also provides future-proof end-to-end communication with no media breaks for various communication protocols and is especially well-suited for use in both new and existing industrial, process, and building automation systems, smart city networks, and transportation systems.
Members of the SPE Industrial Partner Network, which now includes AVX, are actively involved in the continuing development of SPE standards and compatible products — including connectors, cables, cordsets, I/O modules, and switches — and serve as ambassadors of the many advantages that SPE offers for industrial and other non-automotive applications. Members are also available to provide crucial support for engineers interested in either integrating SPE technologies into their device designs or upgrading their existing networks to help ensure the uniform deployment of infrastructure that satisfies industry standards.
“AVX is excited to join the SPE Industrial Partner network, support the global expansion of space-, weight-, and cost-saving SPE network technologies, and develop new connector solutions designed to satisfy evolving market needs, customer demands, and relevant industry standards,” said Ara Zadoorian, product marketing manager at AVX. “AVX Interconnect has a long and proven history of developing high-quality, high-reliability connectors for applications in the automotive, industrial, medical, energy, transportation, telecommunications, and consumer electronics markets and is proud to participate in the promotion, development, and implementation of this innovative technology, which is sure to have an immense impact on automated and autonomous systems in multiple market segments.”
