Category 6 Cable
for High-Power PoE Applications
Future-proof your installations with the
GenSPEED® EfficienC™ Max Category 6 cable.
Exceeds Proposed PoE++ IEEE 802.3bt Standards
The EfficienC Max Category 6 cable goes beyond the proposed IEEE 802.3bt standard of 49 W
to up to 100 W* for even more coverage of high-wattage equipment.
Large-Gauge Conductors for High-Powered Applications
The 22 AWG conductors provide reduced heat generation, higher maximum current carrying
capabilities and improved attenuation performance. According to TIA TSB-184:2009,
minimizing the cabling temperature rise is recommended as it:
î
î
î
î
î
Reduces the impact on the transmission performance (e.g., insertion loss) of the cabling
Minimizes the need for auxiliary mechanical cooling in cable raceways and pathways
Allows operation in higher ambient temperatures without exceeding the cable temperature rating
Permits greater cable density and use of larger cable groups and bundles
Reduces the overall cost of delivering power by minimizing the resistive heating loss
(power dissipated in the cabling)

Cable Temperature Rating Beyond Standard Requirements
General Cable's EfficienC Max cable is rated to 90°C and constructed of 100%
fluoropolymer insulation to offer higher protection against increased operating
temperatures and:
î Surpasses the industry standard of 60°C
î Prevents material degradation from elevated temperatures over extended periods
î Reduces impact of high-powered non-standard PoE applications
Supports up to

*100 W value calculated assuming 50 V circuit per TIA TSB-184:2009 test method.
EfficienC Max Performance
Legacy cabling solutions do not typically have the ability to carry loads
of 1000 mA per pair or greater without exceeding the TIA TSB-184:2009
recommended 15°C max heat rise figures. General Cable’s EfficienC Max
line of products is designed for use in higher current loads while meeting
this TIA guidance.
In a 91-cable bundle, typical category 5e and category 6 cabling fails to
meet the maximum recommended heat rise of 15°C at 1000 mA.
EfficienC Max Cat 6 offers a low-cost solution of efficient power delivery
with performance exceeding the TIA recommended heat rise figures
without having to incur Category 6A pricing.
