Mohawk, a manufacturer of fiber optic and copper cable products, has released PlenumPlus, a family of copper cables, manufactured with a new enhanced Thermoplen LC jacket.

"These cables meet stringent NFPA tests for flame spread and smoke to make it one of the most fire-safe cables on the market," the company said. "In addition, significant improvement has been made in the jacket’s ability to take color concentrates and printability eliminating the need for previously required hard-to-read marker tapes of traditional Limited Combustible constructions."

PlenumPlus, which utilizes DuPont Teflon FEP for the insulation, incorporates ThermoPlen LC for the jacket, delivering extra fire protection where greater fire safety and performance are needed as well as greater flexibility, strip-ability and ease of use over traditional limited combustible constructions.

PlenumPlus cables are available from stock in blue or white jacket colors in 4 pair MegaLAN Category 5e+, 4 pair AdvanceNet Category 6e and 4-pair GigaLAN Category 6e+. Designs for 25-pair Category 5e and fiber cables are under development.
