Altinex Debuts CNK600 Cable Nook® with SP2116SC and SP2117SC Customizable Interconnect Plates

Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to announce the new CNK600 Cable Nook interconnect box and the SP2116SC and SP2117SC customizable interconnect plates. Designed for use in boardrooms and conference rooms, the CNK600 Cable Nook provides an effective means of hiding/storing multimedia cables and connectors when not in use and provides quick, easy access to those connectors when needed. The SP2116SC and SP2117SC interconnect plates designed for use with the CNK600 Cable Nook provide a wealth of connectivity options, including ports for audio, video, network access, USB charging, AC power and more.

 

Designed for installation into a meeting room tabletop, the Altinex CNK600 features a black, brushed aluminum finish that blends well with any meeting room décor. To access the cables or connectors, one simply lifts the lid and pulls the desired cable end out. After the presentation, the cable ends are retracted to the Cable-Nook for safe storage. Alternatively, the user might also plug cables into the fixed connectors—such as patching a notebook into an RJ-45 Ethernet connector for network access. The Cable Nook’s closed lid also has an opening that allows cables to be used with the lid closed to eliminate distractions during meetings.

 

The Altinex SP2116SC interconnect plate is a hybrid interconnect solution that allows for a diverse range of connector configurations for audio, video, computer, network access, and AC power. It is designed for use in North America. The SP2116SC includes the UL/cUL listed CNK-IP-200 single gang dual AC power and dual USB charging module, plus 12 blank snap-in locations that can be customized using a variety of Altinex CM cables. The SP2116SC is also designed to accommodate up to 4—in any combination—of Altinex’ popular RT300 Series retractable cables. The SP2116SC is mounted directly to the CNK600 chassis and has mounting holes for retractable cables—eliminating the need for additional mounting hardware.

 

The Altinex SP2117SC interconnect plate is similar to the SP2116SC, but is intended for use in international markets due to the difference in AC power connectors. These markets include Australia, the European Union, and the United Kingdom. There is also an available universal AC power connector. Like the SP2116SC interconnect plate, the SP2117SC has 12 blank snap-in locations that can be customized using a variety of Altinex CM cables as well as the 4 blank spaces designed to accommodate any combination of RT300 Series retractable cables. The SP2117SC is mounted directly to the CNK600 chassis and has mounting holes for retractable cables—eliminating the need for additional mounting hardware.

 

Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the company’s new CNK600 Cable Nook interconnect box and the SP2116SC and SP2117SC customizable interconnect plates, “Our Cable Nook interconnect boxes provide an efficient means of accessing AC power, video, audio, and other media sources. With the introduction of the SP2116SC and SP2117SC interconnect plates for use with the CNK600, we have a system that provides unparalleled flexibility for custom configuring connectivity options in the contemporary meeting space—for both domestic and international use. These new interconnect systems enable quick, easy access for everything from patching in a laptop computer for a presentation to charging one’s phone or tablet. I’m confident integrators will find much to like with these new systems.”
