Brea, CA – April 2017… Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to announce the addition of two new interconnect boxes to its popular Cable Nook product line: the CNK220 and CNK222. Designed for meeting / collaboration rooms and presentation facilities where access to video display systems, network connectivity, and charging for handheld devices is required, these new Cable Nooks offer an improved aesthetic design, thanks to a recessed top cover that provides easy access from all directions.
Both the CNK220 and CNK222 provide a simple and effective way of enabling the user to access connections to AC power, USB charging, HDMI®, network, and other media sources. The CNK220 and CNK222 each ship with a standard configuration and have additional space for customizing the connections to the requirements of the user.
The Altinex CNK220 includes the CNK200 Cable-Nook Modular Tabletop Interconnect Box and the SP3504SC faceplate. The faceplate is pre‑configured with one CNK-IP-200 module that provides dual AC power and dual USB charging ports. The center module (CNK-IP-212) includes an HDMI video input connector, two 3.5mm audio connectors, and one 15-pin VGA port. The third module is the 6 snap-in port CNK-IP-211, which is outfitted with two RJ45 network connectors, leaving four open ports for customization by Altinex or the integrator / end user.
The Altinex CNK220 includes the CNK200 Cable-Nook Modular Tabletop Interconnect Box and the CNK‑IP‑210 faceplate. The faceplate is pre‑configured with two CNK-IP-200 modules (each with dual AC power and dual USB charging ports) and one CNK‑IP‑217 HDMI module. The CNK‑IP‑217 module has one HDMI pass‑through connector and four blank snap‑in ports that can be customized by Altinex or the integrator / end user.
The CNK-IP-200 module (UL/cUL Listed) in both the CNK220 and CNK222 is designed for 12 Amp AC power capacity while the dual USB charging ports are 3 Amps total, 5VDC, Type A, 2.0. These units come with 9.5 ft. (2.9 m) power cables terminated with a single male plug.
Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the company’s new CNK220 and CNK222 Cable Nook interconnect boxes. “The CNK220 and CNK222 each address the challenges of making connections in the contemporary meeting room and boardroom,” says Gershfeld. “With integrated AC power and USB charging, it’s easy to ensure that both laptop computers and tablets are fully powered and ready to go when needed. Each system has built-in HDMI video connectivity and network access while also being able to be customized for each environment. With their wealth of customization options, I believe integrators will find these interconnect units an excellent choice for a wide range of meeting room requirements.”
