End-users are increasingly looking for ways to optimize and customize their environments with converged lighting, climate and security control systems that utilize Power-over-Ethernet cabling technology. This poses a challenge in environments where these systems span between indoor and outdoor spaces. To help end-users overcome these challenges, Superior Essex has launched Indoor/Outdoor CMR/CMX configurations of its industry-leading PowerWise 1 Gigabit 4-pair Power-over-Ethernet (4PPoE) cable.
“From external building security and access controls in parking decks to outdoor WiFi networks that connect entire campuses, we are seeing a wide range of applications for PoE in the outdoor space,” says Will Bryan, Vice President of Marketing for Superior Essex International LP – Communications. “For these emerging applications, we wanted to offer our customers a complete PowerWise cabling solution set to help connect their entire space with PoE cabling infrastructure.”
PowerWise I/O 1G 4PPoE cable is specifically designed to meet the high power and data demands of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) applications. Utilizing 22 AWG copper conductors, PowerWise 1G 4PPoE cable delivers 60 Watts of power to PoE-enabled devices with 97% power efficiency and 100 Watts of power at 88% power efficiency, while also supporting 1 Gigabit data transmission. In spaces with hundreds of PoE devices, this unparalleled power efficiency can yield an energy savings of thousands of kilowatt hours per year, which translates to thousands of dollars in saved utility costs. Additionally, PowerWise 1G 4PPoE cable maintains the lowest temperature rise in large cable bundles, ensuring reliable power and data transmission in high-density installations and further improving system energy efficiency.
PowerWise I/O 1G 4PPoE cable is manufactured utilizing sustainable processes in a Zero Waste to Landfill facility and maintains a limited environmental impact over the course of its life cycle. It is the only cable of its type to offer Environmental Product Declarations and Health Product Declarations, which allow this product to contribute toward credits in LEED certification. It is also the first and only cable of its type to be included in Cisco’s Digital Ceiling Framework and to be offered in the Cisco Marketplace as a partner solution.
The launch of these configurations continues to broaden the PowerWise product family, which also includes PowerWise 1G 4PPoE CMR/CMP and PowerWise Fiber cables.
