Original Press Release:

Tripp Lite’s New Cat6/6a Cables are Specially Designed for Safety in PoE Installations

CMR-LP Certification Ensures Reliable Temperature Ratings for Power over Ethernet

CHICAGO (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 26, 2019 - Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, is one of the first cable manufacturers to achieve UL CMR-LP certification for PoE safety for its new Cat6/6a cable series. These cables are tested to support up to 100W power delivery without exceeding their listed temperature rating, a critical safety standard for organizations with PoE installations.

“CMR-LP cable is certified specifically for PoE applications,” said David Posner, Tripp Lite’s Director of Product Marketing, Connectivity. “This is the standard organizations should be relying on – both for current PoE needs and to prepare their infrastructure for expanded PoE adoption in the future.”

These new Cat6/6a cables connect high-speed LAN equipment with up to 10 Gbps network speed. With a range of up to 50 feet, they are ideal for powering a multitude of dispersed IoT (Internet of Things) devices. Smaller than standard Cat6 Ethernet cables, they allow for better airflow to support equipment cooling and are easier to install in dense data center environments. Their foil shielding (F/UTP) construction minimizes EMI/RFI line noise and crosstalk with adjacent cables to promote a strong signal between mission-critical IT equipment.

The new Cat6/6a cables are part of a growing line of Tripp Lite products that support PoE applications, including PoE switches, PoE injectors and PoE extenders. Read more about this product line at
