Cross-industry alliance for Single Pair Ethernet technology

04 May 2020

A technology partnership between Phoenix Contact, Weidmüller, Reichle & De-Massari (R&M), Fluke Networks, and Telegärtner for the Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) has progressed with the creation of the SPE System Alliance.

The companies have come together to bundle their respective SPE expertise and ensure the target-oriented exchange of this knowledge with the goal of driving the development of SPE forward for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). 

The network aims to collaborate on the technological challenges faced when implementing SPE in IIoT applications and the hope is that members will be able to implement it faster and more reliably into their own products.
The focus of the members will be firmly on answering questions and addressing the challenges that continue to exist in connection with SPE. The members are already working together in the first sub-communities, in the fields of connection technology, standardisation, SPE use-case reports, and even for cable solutions.

Recent new SPE System Alliance members include Datwyler, Kyland, Microchip Technology, Rosenberger, SICK, O-Ring, Draka/Prysmian Group, and University 4 Industry. 

The SPE System Alliance is an open platform for companies that want to further advance SPE technology on the market. Further details are available at
