Industrial technology leaders stand united behind IEC 63171-6

SPE Industrial Partner Network

SPE Industrial Partner Network

Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is the infrastructure foundation that makes IIoT and Industry 4.0 possible. SPE offers, for the first time, the ability to use Ethernet cost-efficiently all the way to the field level with only one pair of wires. These and many other advantages make SPE the most important infrastructure innovation on the path to IIoT.

Seven of the leaders in industrial technology have joined forces to advance this technology for the rapidly growing IIoT market. HARTING, TE Connectivity, HIROSE, Würth Electronics, LEONI, MURR Elektronik and Softing are the founding members of the SPE Industrial Partner Network.

The SPE Industrial Partner Network is the first point of contact for users when they need to set up SPE networks and devices. This partnership provides clear recommendations for developing future IIoT applications, operates a central information platform, and provides investment security for users so they can rely on this technology in the future.

The security that users have in this investment is underlined by the rapid growth of the SPE network. By May 2022, there were already more than 50 international companies from the industry among the members. They represent a complete ecosystem of infrastructure providers, Ethernet chips, magnetics, industrial devices and testing equipment.
