Superior Essex Launches Powerwise I/O 1 Gigabit 4Ppoe CMR /CMX Cables for Indoor/Outdoor

Superior Essex has launched Indoor/Outdoor CMR/CMX configurations of its PowerWise 1 Gigabit 4-pair Power-over-Ethernet (4PPoE) cable. 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 Cisco's Digital Ceiling Framework and be 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.

Superior Essex Launches EnduraLite™ Indoor/Outdoor Optical Fiber Cable

Superior Essex announced the launch of its EnduraLite™ Indoor/Outdoor Loose Tube optical fiber cable. Robust and flexible, the EnduraLite cable is uniquely designed to handle tough weather conditions in applications that require a transition of optical fiber between indoor and outdoor environments. EnduraLite improves on existing I/O fiber cable designs by offering increased environmental protection and dry water-blocking elements, as well as easier handling and installation. EnduraLite cables are available in plenum and riser-rated designs, and meet all ICEA 696 requirements. The EnduraLite cable, available in plenum and riser-rated single and multi-unit designs, consists of one or several 3 mm subunits stranded around a central strength element. Each of these subunits incorporates the latest in dry water-blocking technology, which eliminates the need to clean off the traditional gel-based water-blocking compounds, and is surrounded by aramid yarns, allowing the subunit to be crimped directly onto an MTP® or MPO connector. The 3mm subunits are stranded around a central strength element that is both sturdy and flexible, and jacketed in either PVC for the riser design or PVDF for the plenum design. PVDF is naturally sunlight and moisture resistant, offering additional protection from sun exposure and water ingress. With its smooth surface and proportionately low coefficient of friction, PVDF jacketing is easier to handle and pull, reducing the time and labor required for installation. Plenum designs with PVDF jacketing are available in multiple color options. Both the plenum and riser designs are UL Listed Sunlight Resistant.
