SPE Switch

Efficient communication in a secure network

With a transmission rate of 10 MBit/s and a range of up to 1,000 m, our SPE switch enables a fast connection between networks and participants.

The module optimises the efficiency of emergency lighting communication and increases data security through the implementation of V-LAN networks. An innovative solution, easy to configure and seamlessly integrated into existing infrastructures – for more efficient and secure corporate networks.

  • Network communication up to 1 km without additional repeaters
  • Lower project costs due to fewer network components
  • Increased safety due to separate infrastructure for emergency lighting systems

Economical network solution

With a transmission rate of 10 Mbit/s and a cable length of up to 1,000 m, the SPE switch establishes a fast connection between networks and their participants. 

If the cable length is too long for the conventional network (>100 m) and the use of commercially available switches or hubs is uneconomical, emergency lighting device networks can be connected and visualised over long distances, for example with the INOView software.

Technology of the future

The SPE switch establishes a fast 10/100 Mbit connection between network participants over a distance of up to 1,000 m. A 24 V DC voltage is required to supply the SPE switch, which is designed for top-hat rail mounting. A network with various INOTEC emergency lighting devices can be set up at ports 1 and 2 via the RJ45 connections.

A 3-wire connection of up to 1,000 m can be established between a second SPE switch via the SPE1 and SPE2 screw terminals on the output side. Even longer cable lengths can be achieved by using several SPE switches. This connection is used, for example, to ensure monitoring of the INOView visualisation software over long distances.

Typical requirements with a maximum range of 100 m are no longer necessary with SPE technology. The non-administrative SPE switch can also be used universally in networks, not just for INOTEC devices.
