Single Pair Ethernet Lite managed switch

Single Pair Ethernet Lite managed switch

Future-ready switch enables simplified network connectivity for Industry 4.0.

Belden has announced its BEETLE Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) Lite Managed Switch from Lumberg Automation.

An extension of Belden’s Single Pair Ethernet portfolio of connectivity products, the new BEETLE switch empowers organizations to reduce network complexity by deploying thinner, lighter SPE cables that provide connectivity via a single pair of wires rather than the two or four pairs required by standard Ethernet.

The BEETLE Lite Managed Switch provides powerful benefits, such as:

  • Transmits Ethernet up to at least 1 kilometer. Meets the 10BASE-T1L standard for long-distance Ethernet.
  • Saves space. Supports Ethernet transmission via a single wire pair that is lighter and more compact than traditional Ethernet cables.
  • Reduces network complexity. Integrate sensors and actuators directly into the network without the need for an additional gateway.
    Simplifies configuration and maintenance. Streamline installation and maintenance and reduce operating costs with fewer gateways and protocols in use.
  • Delivers essential lite managed switch features like VLAN at an optimized price-performance ratio and lower long-term total cost of ownership.
