Siemon Working with DuPont Fluoroproducts to Promote Higher Performing, Safer Cabling Systems

Limited Combustible cables manufactured with DuPont™ Teflon® provide the most advanced fire safety technology available for data communication cables.

The Siemon Company, a global leader in the design and manufacture of network cabling systems and components, announced today that it is working with DuPont Fluoroproducts to promote high performing, limited combustible network cabling systems. In 2004, cable fire safety will be added to the Siemon Certified Installer Training Program and the Siemon Seminar Series.


"The Siemon Company is proud to add Limited Combustible cables made with DuPont™ Teflon® from Belden, CommScope and Mohawk/CDT to its list of qualified cables in The Siemon Cabling System," said Robert Carlson, Vice President of Global Marketing for the Siemon Company. "Limited Combustible cables manufactured with DuPont™ Teflon® provide the most advanced fire safety technology available for data communication cables. The result is higher performing category 5e and 6 cabling systems with better resistance to fire and lower smoke generation. This higher performance is directly attributed to the superior properties of the Teflon® FEP used in the outer cable jacket as well as the conductor insulation."

Fire safety testing revealed that traditional plenum and LSOH cables meeting minimum code requirements burned and emitted damaging smoke while Limited Combustible cables provided the best possible fire and smoke protection available.

"Using Limited Combustible cables to reduce fire load and smoke can potentially save lives and prevent damage to network equipment," said Patrick Lindner, global business manager for DuPont Communications Cabling Solutions. "We are excited to be working with Siemon to bring this next generation cabling technology to market."

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
