Superior Essex, Inc. Key Developments

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).

Superior Essex Plans to Close its Kendallville Plant

Superior Essex plans to close its Kendallville plant, eliminating about 50 jobs, just two years after investing almost $2.4 million in new equipment and increasing the workforce by 20.
