Belden: BEETLE Single Pair Ethernet Lite Managed Switch

The Lumberg Automation BEETLE Lite Managed Switch supports the transition to future-ready networks built using Single Pair Ethernet (SPE), supporting seamless sensor-to-cloud connectivity. As industrial environments grow in complexity, enterprises have opportunities to connect more field devices and gather more data. However, they need to consider space and weight constraints and simplify network infrastructure where possible. SPE supports this goal by allowing connectivity via a single pair of wires rather than the two or four pairs required by standard Ethernet.
