Superior Essex Inc. Key Developments

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.

Superior Essex Launches PowerWise™ Category 5E Cable for Power-Over-Ethernet Applications

Superior Essex announced the launch of PowerWise Category 5e cable, a 22 gauge communications data cable specifically designed for internet-connected devices that utilize Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and require higher levels of current. The PowerWise CAT 5e cable provides 88% power efficiency for POE+ and future 4PPoE applications over 100 meter distances. This improved power efficiency is due to the fact that 22 gauge copper wires are 59% larger than the 24 gauge copper wires typically used in CAT 5e cables. In comparison to typical CAT 5e cables (79% power efficiency) and typical CAT 6 cables (82% power efficiency), the PowerWise CAT 5e cable will yield energy savings of up to $78 and $46, respectively, over a 10 year period per powered device which draws an average of 71W over 100 meter distance. While some PoE devices require a CAT 6A cable for its ability to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet, many devices will never need a data rate that exceeds the throughput capability of CAT 5e. For devices such as LED lighting fixtures, the ongoing cost and the initial cost of the installation are the most important considerations for POE cable selection. PowerWise CAT 5e cable combines the power efficiency benefits of 22 gauge copper conductors with the design cost benefit of CAT 5e (versus a 22 gauge CAT 6 cable or a CAT 6A cable).
