Hubbell now offers Data Terminal Equipment warranty

April 18, 2003
April 18, 2003 - Warranty applies to Category 5e and 6 connecting hardware.

Hubbell Premise Wiring now offers a 25-year Data Terminal Equipment power assurance warranty on its Category 5e and Category 6 connecting hardware.

With the proliferation of VoIP systems and wireless access points requiring DTE power over the structured cabling system, a key concern among IT professionals is the ability of connecting hardware to support continuous power. Though typical industry standards impose requirements for safety, they have not yet addressed this emerging technology.

Hubbell Premise Wiring has extensively tested the current capacity of its connecting hardware under extreme conditions. The tests ran four times the maximum standard power load through the connector and energized all eight positions simultaneously (vs. the standard four). The testing demonstrated that Hubbell's connectivity is fully capable of handling the current carrying requirements without any failure or substantial increase in temperature.

Backed with these test results, Hubbell Premise Wiring now provides true application assurance, warranting their systems support continuous DTE power with a 25-year Mission Critical application assurance warranty.

Hubbell Premise Wiring, based in Stonington, CT, manufactures structured cabling systems, enclosures and accessories. For more information, call 800-626-0005 for a copy of the white paper, "Current Carrying Capabilities of Hubbell's Connecting Hardware", or visit
