R&M launches new Single Pair Ethernet system in the Middle East


R&M today launched the industry’s first complete Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) system in the Middle East. Comprised of connectors and connection modules, installation cables and patch cords, this new system provides an effective way to link digital terminal devices and sensors to data networks, paving the way for comprehensive building automation. R&M sees the possibility for the solution’s application in key facilities in the region including hospitals, hotels, malls, industrial parks, and office centers.

R&M’s Single Pair Ethernet solution extends the concept of local data networks (LAN) and structured cabling systems while offering cables that are thinner and connectors that are smaller. This allows a large number of devices and sensors – such as smart LED lights, remote-controlled monitors and scoreboards, temperature, light and climate sensors, controllers for heating and ventilation, electronic cash registers and self-service terminals – to be connected without traditional constraints. In addition to data and signals, SPE cabling can also transport electricity and thus supply terminal equipment with power. In many cases, this eliminates the need for separate wiring for the power supply.

Single Pair Ethernet Alliance
R&M is one of the driving forces behind the standardization and broad market launch of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE). In 2020, R&M founded the Single Pair Ethernet System Alliance together with more than 20 international technology companies. It aims to promote the use of SPE in a wide range of applications and areas of operation.

Technical Details
R&M offers two connector systems: LC-Cu in compliance with IEC 63171-1 for structured cabling and building automation, and MSP in compliance with IEC 63171-2 for the industrial environment. The new products can be combined with existing R&M outlets and 19” panels.
