periSWITCH 3-Port SPE Network Switch

The periSWITCH network switch allows the branching or sub-distribution of Single Pair Ethernet lines. This allows several SPE-capable sensors/actuators/components to be connected to a common line. The periSWITCH serves as a branching point and can be installed directly in the cable harness due to its small size and robustness.
Hybrid Single Pair Ethernet enables the periSWITCH and other connected components to be supplied with power via the hybrid SPE cable.

periSWITCH

The periSWITCH 3-port network switch enables the uncomplicated interconnection of multiple sensors/actuators/components in an SPE network.
It extends the flexibility of the Perinet Seamless IoT Connectivity System by enabling simple and uncomplicated adaptation to any use case and environment: from industrial production lines to commercial applications and smart buildings.


Scope of Application

periSWITCH 3-Port is designed for IoT and IIoT use cases in which several sensors/actuators/components are to be connected to an SPE network in an uncomplicated and flexible manner.


Key Features

  • One hybrid input (data and supply voltage)
  • Two hybrid outputs (data and supply voltage)
  • Enables uncomplicated branching and sub-distribution of data and supply voltage lines at field level
  • Allows flexible topologies such as "point-to-multipoint" without restrictions caused by the supply voltage
