Leviton  - Cabling System for Power over Ethernet

Leviton  - Cabling System for Power over Ethernet banner

Since its introduction in 2003, Power over Ethernet (PoE) has expanded to support more devices at higher power transmissions. By running power and data over the same cable, PoE eliminates the need for additional wiring, saving on cost and redundant cabling. It also creates a more flexible solution for far-off building locations, such as warehouse work areas, IP security cameras and sales kiosks. However, without the right cabling and network design, PoE installations can encounter heat generation that may affect performance.

Leviton's structured cabling systems meet the need for higher bandwidth and power, while limiting the temperature rise in large cable bundles. They are designed and tested to be compliant with all current and draft IEEE PoE standards, Power over HDBaseT, and IEC 60512-99-001. And Leviton Altas-X1™ Cat 6A connectivity has been tested to deliver 100-watt PoE, as defined in the draft IEEE 802.3bt (Type 4) standard.

Stronger connection integrity

Atlas-X1 and eXtreme  connectors are designed to keep the contact point between the plug and connector away from potential electrical arcing damage, saving on costly repairs and improving the life of the system.

Better heat dissipation

The Atlas-X1 Cat 6A Connector is the industry's only UTP connector to feature a solid metal body, which dissipates heat 53% more efficiently than plastic alternatives for greater system performance and longevity.

More installation flexibility

Atlas-X1 Cat 6A SlimLine Patch Cords and eXtreme Cat 6A Patch Cords use an F/UTP construction, which dissipates heat more efficiently than standard UTP cords. This allows for greater bundling sizes and cabling lengths while still meeting performance standards.

Superior noise-cancelling technology
