Digital Electricity™ Cables

Belden Digital Electricity Cables allow end-users to take advantage of the Digital Electricity application, safely providing lots of power over long distances. The cables were designed in conjunction with VoltServer, the creator of Digital Electricity, to ensure that they will support the application in all situations. Cables are available in hybrid copper/fiber constructions to transmit power and data over long distances in a single cable run.

Belden Digital Electricity Cables

  • Reduced Installation Time: Twisted pairs speed up installation and reduce confusion by offering easy identification of cable pairs
  • Less Cable Waste: Default reel length of 2,000 ft: typical runs exceed 500 ft, resulting in lots of waste with conventional reel lengths of 1,000 ft
  • Flexibility: Can be used for indoor (plenum and riser), outdoor and overhead-burial applications
  • Fewer Cables to Stock: Hybrid construction means that you can reduce your inventory by stocking and managing two cables vs. one
  • Single Cable Pull for Time Savings: You only need to pull a single cable vs. two cables, reducing labor costs

Digital Electricity Application

  • Power Over Longer Distances: Delivers much more power across much longer distances – 20x more power or distance than Power over Ethernet (PoE) with up to 2,000W across a reach of up to 2km
  • Safety: Can be touched without the risk of dangerous electrical shock
  • Cost Effective: No conduit, low-cost labor; electricians aren’t required for cable installation
  • Speed of Deployment: Flexibility along with speed to deployment and speed to change
  • Space Savings: Reduced real-estate needs – bypass IDF closets to zones (for Belden DE Cable)

Belden Digital Electricity Cables

  • Twisted Pairs: A stranded copper pairs design maintains flexibility and performance during installation and improves electrical performance to ensure application functionality
  • Custom Jacket Colors: VoltServer Green to match DE equipment manufacturers for a unified system aesthetic
  • Tinned Copper: Improve cable longevity and anti-corrosion properties for peace of mind that the system will last
  • SmartPart Numbers: Easy ordering and cable identification; allows for tailored products with specific conductor, fiber strand, color or length requirements

Digital Electricity Application

  • Back-Up/Control: Centrally back-up and intelligently monitor and manage your power plant
  • Smart: Local and remote policy controlled power and operations
  • Line Sensing: Transmitters and receivers are constantly monitoring line conditions to make sure power is properly received; if not, power distribution stops immediately
