Belden Inc. Cables Gain LP Certification

In their latest press release, signal transmissions solutions provider and Edge supplier Belden Inc. has announced that many of its cables have received Limited Power (LP) certification, which designates that their cables are able to carry the identified amount of current per conductor under certain conditions without exceeding the cable temperature rating.

The news is significant considering that most LP-listed cables today are hardly used. Although most PoE applications require delivery below 60W and PoE Type 3 or lower cables, Belden pursued LP certification to help installers, consultants and enterprises prepare for devices that go beyond 60W or use PoE Type 4. The certifications also clear the confusion on cable bundle sizes wherever possible.

Belden’s 10GXS and 2183 lines, and other cables, greatly benefit from LP Certification.

“Only Belden’s innovative enterprise connectivity solutions take a universal approach to customers’ enterprises, resolving signal transmission needs with IP- and legacy-based solutions that enable a smooth migration to convergence,” the statement reads. “Outstanding global service and support capabilities and application-specific warranty programs complete Belden’s unique offering.”
