Remee Wire & Cable Activate PowerPipe Cables

July 12, 2022

Remee Wire & Cable launched its Activate line of PowerPipe distribution cables. Remee offers this new family of copper multipair and hybrid copper/fiber cables to provide a more cost-effective and resilient Class 4 fault-managed power solution for distributed electronics that require long-distance runs.

These cables were designed to meet the new NEC Class 4 standard for fault-managed power systems. They will support growing digital power technologies required in smart buildings and in many other applications. Activate PowerPipe cables are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, such as Power over Ethernet (PoE), security cameras and wireless access points.

PowerPipe cables allow for controlled power distribution that’s safe, less expensive, faster to install and compliant with Class 4 fault-managed power systems. The technology is also referred to as Digital Electricity (DE), pulse power or packet energy transfer (PET). 

Remee’s Activate PowerPipe cables combine the convenience and safety of low-voltage cables with the power and distance capabilities of traditional AC distribution. The cables deliver nearly 20 times the power of PoE over hundreds of yards while using low-voltage pathways and wiring practices. And, like PoE, Activate’s single-cable construction requires only one cable pull, which saves installation time and expense.

This innovative technology leverages pulse transmission to deliver significant power over long distances, in a similar manner as data packets travel over enterprise networks. As a line-powering system, it energizes remote equipment from a central location over copper twisted pairs or hybrid cables that have Class 4 fault-managed power.

Line conditions are monitored continuously by transmitters and receivers. If there’s a fault, such as improper wiring, a short circuit or a person touching the transmission lines, the system recognizes the condi­tion in milliseconds and halts the transmission of power. The result is “touch-safe” electrical transmission at high power levels. This “clean power” also eliminates sags and surges.
