LEMO has launched a 1000 Base T1- Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) Push-Pull connector. Based on transmission standards (IEEE 802.3), single-pair Ethernet (also called SPE or 1000Base-T1) is integrated into new generations of automobiles.
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 provides two types of insulators 0B.511(2 contacts) and 1B.512 (4 contacts + screen) compatible with Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) and Shielded Twisted Pairs (STP). The new product is available in the B series and also in a watertight version – the T series connector. The connectors are initially designed for automotive and industrial data transfer. The role of SPE is also to gain space and weight (with a more simple cable) and can be used in other markets such as machine, robotics and rail technology.
These miniature connector allow test and certification bodies to carry out automotive tests with LEMO’s reliable Push-Pull system. They also allow repeated connection and disconnection of sensors and actuators such as radars, front camera, LTE and onboard passenger animation to the vehicle’s main control systems.
