Superior Essex expands PoE application offerings with PowerWise Fiber
This initial PowerWise Fiber cable design consists of two (2) – 2 mm bend-resistant G.657.B3 single mode fiber simplex interconnect cables and two (2) – stranded 16 AWG copper conductors. The use of G.657.B3 fiber allows the cable to be installed in environments where the pathway may require a number of 90° turns, yet the attenuation loss will be the lowest of any other typical single mode fiber type. The two simplex interconnect cables allow direct and secure connection to LC or SC type mechanical connectors. The core is surrounded by strength yarns that provide the cable with the tensile strength to meet the distribution cable requirements of ANSI/ICEA S-83-596. The cable is UL Listed CL3R-OF, CMR-OF and FPLR-OF.
“Our customers required a small, flexible and durable cable for applications that exceeded the 100 meter reach limitation of Power-over-Ethernet and twisted-pair category cables,” says Dr. Paul Neveux, Director of Global Product Management for Premises Fiber products at Superior Essex. “We designed this composite power and fiber cable especially for security camera applications where the reach often exceeds 100 meters. In addition, using G.657.B3 single mode fiber assures that the signal will not be attenuated even with bend radii as small as 5 mm.”
