Home Automation app

Activate™ by Remee, a wide selection of Powered Cable Solutions (PCS), is offered in response to the growing demand for Power over Ethernet (PoE) and the many powered cabling applications requiring distances beyond the limits of Category cables. The Activate™ By Remee PCS line includes a selection of standard and customized Category cables, a higher gauge Cat 6 PoE cable, utility Twisted Pair (uTP) cables, and Powered Fiber Copper Solutions – hybrid cable configurations for even longer distances when greater bandwidth is needed. They can be used indoors or outdoors in commercial enterprise Ethernet networks, Industrial Ethernet networks, and many other applications where a combination of data and power is required, such as wireless and wired home or building automation devices.

Activate™ by Remee provides a solution for any combination of need:

  • Large data with limited power
  • Little data with limited power
  • Little data with large power
  • Large data with large power

Benefits of PoE

Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology allows network cables to carry electrical power to devices and nodes, such as home automation devices, VoIP phones, wireless access points, industrial controls, network switches, LED lighting systems, surveillance products, media converters, PoE injectors, plus many others, with one Ethernet cable.

PoE cables allow the installation of remote or outdoor equipment without connecting to an AC power source, and power can be delivered to more areas without the need to install an electrical infrastructure and power outlets.  Other benefits include reduced installation costs, safety, responsive deployments, easy to make changes, greater data collection capabilities and improved productivity.

Go Beyond the Limits of PoE

The primary limitation of standard PoE cable is its limited distance from the hub or switch to the NIC of 100 meters (328 feet), which is the limit of the data signal, regardless of how far the power can reach.  To provide power over both PoE and extended distances,  we now offer Activate™ by Remee, featuring a variety of Powered Cable Solutions.  The new Activate™ by Remee PCS line features utility Twisted Pair (uTP) cables and Powered Fiber Cable Solutions. fiber optic and copper hybrid constructions which extend the signal distance much further and are compatible with a fast-growing number of devices.  Activate™ by Remee provides powered cabling for large-scale projects such as large buildings, government facilities, transportation facilities, campuses and more.

Cable Solutions for Any Data, Any Distance

The Activate™ by Remee PCS line includes:

  1. Standard Category PoE Cables
  • Cat 5e for PoE (Type 1, 802.3af), carrying 15.4WPS
  • Cat 6 and Cat 6A for PoE+ (Type 2, 802.3at) cables, carrying 30WPS

These twisted pair Category cables include 24 AWG conductors, are offered with (STP) or without (UTP) shielding, and a Polyethylene or low-smoke and flame-retardant PVC jacket.  Some are available in Siamese constructions.  Category cables are CMR (riser), CMP (plenum) or OSP rated.  The OSP rated cables feature water blocking, direct burial and messengered versions.  These cables are well suited for PoE applications requiring up to 100W of power.

  1. Cat 6 Limited Power for PoE++
  • Types 3 and 4, 802.3bt, carrying 60WPS or 100WPS
  • The larger 22AWG copper conductor carries power for a greater distance than standard Cat 6 cables
  • 550 MHz, CMP-LP rated

The larger conductor carries power for a greater distance than standard Cat 6 cables and reduces performance issues caused by heat. It features improved insertion loss over the current Cat 6 industry standard, and increased ACR and PSACR performance.

This utility cable can be used for Digital Video, and is compatible with USB 3.1 SuperSpeed. It supports the growth of higher-wattage devices in the Internet of Things (IoT).

Part Number: 6BNS224LP5

  1. uTP – utility Twisted Pair
  • Riser, Plenum, OSP and LSZH
  • Utilizes 21AWG copper to reduce performances issues caused by heat
  • Enhanced “headroom” allows for useable bandwidth at distances beyond 328 feet
  • Ultra-low loss, high speed dielectric
  • Supports building automation (BAS) and intelligent buildings (IBS) networked devices without the need for conduit in plenum spaces, at distances well beyond the EIA/TIA standards for Category cabling
  • Ideal for perimeter range security cameras (PTZ included)
  • Supports all digital video surveillance protocols including 4K Ultra HD
  • Digital Video, compatible with USB 3.1 SuperSpeed, supports the growth of higher-wattage devices in the IoT

This exciting addition to the Activate™ by Remee PCS line provides for more data/distance combinations than any other standard copper cable option. Truly a utility cable, the Activate™ uTP Cable can be used for limited bandwidth applications that need power delivered to locations that fall outside of the traditional Ethernet ring topology, such as:

  • Cameras, thermostats, PoE lighting, etc.
  • Higher wattage devices in the IoT
  • Industrial, factory floor

Part Number: ACT4P21

  1. Powered Fiber Copper Solutions (PFCS)
  • Custom hybrid composite cable constructions
  • Copper: Bare copper stranded power conductors (10AWG to 24AWG)
  • Fiber: High performance Corning ClearCurve™or Prysmian
  • BendBright™optical fibers
  • Loose tube or tight buffer designs, with indoor and indoor/outdoor listings
  • Siamese hybrid cable constructions are also available

Remee’s PFCS hybrid cabling solutions can be constructed under one jacket as a composite cable or paired together as a Siamese construction. PFCS cables are ideal for applications requiring extended distances with enhanced bandwidth needs, such as:

  • Passive Optical Networks requiring power for ONT’s utilizing a power supply
  • Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) requiring a large backhaul and a little power delivery
  • Cellular/5G micro-cell antennas that require a large backhaul and a little power delivery

Part Numbers: 40 Series

Standards & Certifications

Remee cables meet the applicable ETL and CSA requirements.  All Remee cable products are manufactured under ISO 9001 certification.

Modified Standard & Custom PoE and PFCS Cables

In addition to standard cables, Remee can modify or customize any PoE cable or design any hybrid cable construction to meet your application requirements.  Remee specializes in customizing cables by adding features such as:

  • Bundled, composite and hybrid cables
  • Jacketing & insulation options (material type and wall thickness)
  • Various shielding configurations
  • Water blocking – dry or with gel
  • Messengers
  • Armoring
  • Non-standard colored jackets
  • Optional striping
  • Other requirements you may have

Important Remee Features

  • Flexibility – Cables with stranded conductors provide high flexibility to ease installation in walls or ceilings; Remee uses only solid copper strands – no aluminum-coated copper
  • Stripability – REMGuard insulation is easy to peel or strip away from conductors
  • Interference Protection – All cables with foil shields include 100% coverage to prevent signal interference or degradation from egress or ingress
  • Water-Blocking – Water-swellable tape, water-blocking compounds or AquaLock™ dry tube technology are options at Remee to create a moisture barrier for direct burial or other applications where the cable is exposed to water or moisture
  • Bundling – Remee bundled and composite cables allow multiple signals to traverse over more than one cable under one overall jacket; this simplifies installation, with only one cable needing to be pulled for installation, rather than multiple cables
  • Jacket Options – Remee offers several jacketing options:
    • RemGuard Polymer jackets for plenum-rated cables with low flammability and low smoke
    • LSZH (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) jackets made of thermoplastic or thermoset compounds that emit limited smoke and no toxic halogen gasses
  • Ask us about other polyolefin compounds to suit your application
