The combination of Superior Essex cable and Vigitron products provided power higher than 802.3at over distances of up to 1,200 feet Vigitron, Inc., a leading manufacturer and provider of analogue, IP and HD transmission solutions, has completed inter-operational testing with the Superior Essex PowerWise™ Category 5e+ 4PPoE 22 AWG cable. The combination of Vigitron products and Superior Essex cables results in the ability to provide 802.3af Class 2 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) for distances up to 3,000 feet, Class 3 for distances up 2,500 feet, and 802.3 Class 4 up to 1,500 feet. “We find the greatest significance in applications requiring camera power higher than 802.3at,” says Neil Heller, Vigitron’s Vice President of Business Development. “This includes cameras which are generally referred to as 60 watts and power all functions, including heaters and blowers using PoE. The combination of Superior Essex PowerWise cable and Vigitron PoE infrastructure products resulted in achieving distances up to 1,200 feet, decreasing installation costs while maintaining central control over all camera functions. While focusing on higher powered cameras, we shouldn’t overlook similar applications such as the growing number of static outdoor cameras with built in heaters and blowers that operate at full 802.3at power levels of 25.5 watts.” Reliable PoE cabling and infrastructure solutions “Vigitron’s success with the PowerWise Category 5e+ cable in Power-over-Ethernet applications is a testament to the real value of this product in terms of its energy efficiency and overall performance,” says Amir Sekhavat, Global Director of Premises Copper products at Superior Essex. “Partnering with Vigitron ensures our customers are receiving the exceptional PoE cabling and infrastructure solutions they require to exceed the demands of their present and future installations.” Vigitron will be incorporating Superior Essex into its industry-leading Design Center Services, which provide the most cost-effective and reliable infrastructure solutions staff of trained engineers.
