Plenum-Rated Cabling and Connectivity for Intelligent Buildings

by Julie Clark on July 28, 2016

Today more than ever, companies are striving to deploy profitable intelligent buildings capable of providing significant capital and operational savings, while improving sustainability and overall customer and employee satisfaction. At the same time, the "Internet of Things" is rapidly becoming a reality as more low-voltage devices become network enabled for efficient power, control and communication across integrated systems.

In addition to voice, data, video and wireless devices, a wide range of sensors, control panels and detectors for access control, LED lighting, alarm systems, temperature, air handling/ventilation and many other security and building automation systems now require network connectivity.

Often many of these devices need to connect within the plenum space of a building, including above the drop ceiling and under raised floors. Cable and connectivity placed within the plenum space must meet specific fire protection regulations in accordance with the National Electric Code® (NFPA 70), including UL 2043 rating for smoke and heat release in air-handling spaces.


To support that combined need for felxibility and Code compliance, Siemon's line of UL 2043 plenum-rated cable and connectivity products now includes:

    Z-MAX® Category 6A Shielded and UTP Solid Plenum Modular Cords

    Z-MAX Category 6A Shielded and UTP Outlets

    Z-MAX Category 6 UTP Outlets

    Z-MAX Category 5e Shielded Outlets

    MAX® Category 5e and Category 6 UTP Outlets

    IC 5e UTP Solid Plenum Modular Cords

    IC 6 UTP Solid Plenum Modular Cords

    Z-MAX and MX Surface Mount Boxes

    Surface Pack Boxes

    24-Port MAX Zone Unit Enclosure
