PCB Terminal Block for Single Pair Ethernet from Phoenix Contact

Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is a powerful technology for realizing Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications. The PCB terminal blocks from the Phoenix Contact Combicon range provide the ideal connection technology.

The networking of smart devices continues to advance. This applies in particular to sensors that are often exposed to higher-altitude ambient conditions when used in the field. In addition to the possibility of integrating an IP-protected connector into such field devices, there is also the option of using a cable gland to achieve the desired degree of protection. This means that the PCB terminal blocks, tested and suitable for SPE data transmission, can be used inside the devices. 

This has a range of advantages. On the one hand, the device manufacturer has the freedom to decide upon the position of the small SPE terminal blocks on the PCB precisely as needed. The familiar screw or Push-in connection technology also makes life easier for the on-site installers. With the clear color coding and intuitive handling, the blue and white wires of the SPE cable can be contacted clearly and safely.
