SPEBlox-Long (10BASE-T1L) - 10Mbps, 1km range
SPEBlox-Long is a communication device that provides 10Mbps at extremely long cable runs up to 1,000m (1km) over simple twisted pair copper cable.
This technology is based around the 10BASE-T1L specification, and this board aims to provide a cheaper and simpler way of achieving reasonably low bandwidth communication over very long cable runs.
SPEBlox-Long is 31mm x 31mm and provides a standard 10BASE-T ethernet connection on Picoblade header (much like our other products). The 10BASE-T1L (single pair ethernet) connection is placed onto a screw terminal for full flexibility of cable types. The board is powered by any voltage from 5-60V and draws around 500mW (0.5W) of power at full operation.
SPEBlox-Long is perfect for the following applications:
- Tethers for under water robots
- Factory communication infrastructure
- Any application requiring a simple, low cost, robust connection between physically disparate devices
No customer configuration is required on SPEBlox-Long, however an STM32 microcontroller is embedded onboard for communication management options.
This board is currently available for purchase.
