Altinex adds tabletop box to Cable Nook line
Altinex has added the CNK202 Cable Nook modular tabletop interconnect box to its Cable Nook product line.
The CNK202 Cable Nook hides and stores multimedia cables and fixed connectors while they are still connected to a presentation system.
It has no mounting brackets so integrators can install the unit from the top of the table. It uses a trapdoor-type, half-moon lid that remains flush with the table when not in use. To access the cables or connectors, users lift the lid and pull the ends out, or plug cables into any installed fixed connectors.
Cables feed through the Cable-Nook to the underside of the table, enabling connection to the presentation system. The weight of the cables helps to feed the slack through the unit and the cable ends are kept from falling by an adjustable retaining bracket.
This retaining bracket uses rounded edges to prevent kinking and is adjustable to both height and depth. The CNK202 offers 23 slots available for power, grommets, retaining brackets, or Altinex CNK-IP insert plates. Available plates include ones for power (both domestic and international versions), models for snap-in ports, HDMI video, and more. Of particular note, the CNK202 is UL/cUL listed when used with the available CN5008US Dual AC Power Module for use in the USA and Canada.
The CNK202 can accommodate up to six cable retractors using separate retractor mounting brackets. These RT300 Series retractors come in different varieties and can accommodate VGA, HDMI, RJ-45, 3.5mm, USB, and USB-C formats. Altinex offers the CNK-IP-200 UL listed dual power plug with dual USB charging ports for applications requiring power and USB charging.
