Device connectivity for data transmission

Connectors and sockets for data transmission are already an integral part of future-oriented device design. Weidmüller's data connectors and sockets offer convincing solutions for Industrial Ethernet.

RJ45, USB jacks and SPE PCB connectors ensure a safe and efficient interface to your device. The fully shielded product range of data connectors and sockets ensures high electromagnetic compatibility, includes all common outlet angles, top and bottom snap-in hooks as well as innovative STEADYTEC® connection technology for an industrial standard design. Learn more about Weidmüller's product portfolio of standardized data connectors and PCB terminals for data transmission and the possible applications.

Next Generation Ethernet

Data connections for the factory of the future Product innovation

Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is the extension of Ethernet technology. SPE is compact, flexible, and supports continuous Ethernet communication from the sensor to the cloud. SPE therefore is the optimal solution for extending Ethernet networks to the field level.
