The Fluke Networks Versiv Cabling Certification System now supports Legrand’s family of Clarity cords and high-density jacks and Superior Essex Communications’ LP PowerWise cabling products. The combined PowerWise and Clarity system is designed to provide superior performance for power over Ethernet (PoE), including the IEEE 802.3bt draft 3.0 standard.
This new capability extends Fluke Networks as the only provider of certification products and services in the structured cabling industry with the capability to test and certify all IEEE standards and requirements for 802.3bt PoE installations worldwide.
Legrand’s line of Clarity cords and connectors combined with Superior Essex PowerWise cable support 802.3bt PoE, which can provide up to 100 W of power to an endpoint. This can power monitors, displays, pan and zoom cameras and video security systems, speakers, building alarms and sensors, security and lock systems, and even PCs– without separate ac cabling for power. With the evolving machine-to-machine, internet-of-things, and transcendent PoE technologies, PoE holds a great deal of promise for network systems and the businesses and organizations that depend on them.
