Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to announce the new TNP358 Tilt ’N Plug® Interconnect Box. Designed for mounting into tables, podiums, or other furniture as part of a presentation system, this innovative connectivity / power solution makes it easier than ever to enter a meeting or presentation space and patch one’s laptop computer or audio source into the room’s AV presentation equipment while simultaneously supplying power to smartphones, tablets, and other commonly used productivity tools.
The new Altinex TNP358 interconnect box is available in both black or brushed aluminum finishes and includes dual AC power sockets, two charging USB ports, plus HDMI® and audio connectors. When it is time, for example, to patch one’s computer into the AV presentation system, one merely runs an HDMI cable from the laptop to the TNP358’s corresponding HDMI connector to achieve both sound and picture over a single cable.
Equally notable are the TNP358’s two 12 Amp U.S. power receptacles and the two USB ports that can deliver up to 3 Amps of charging power. The TNP358 was specifically designed for devices requiring a charging USB port, such as smartphones and tablets. A single input power cable delivers power to both AC outlets and features a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) plug for added safety. Equally notable, contractors will appreciate the fact that the unit is UL Listed—ensuring the highest safety standards.
The TNP358 interconnect box’s input plate is accessed by pushing down on the top cover. The unit then auto-tilts open with assistance from an internal spring. Once open, the input plate remains securely in place. The input plate is hidden, or closed, by pressing down on the top cover until the latching mechanism engages. In its closed position, the top panel lies flush with the table’s top, held in place by the latching mechanism. This secure fit also means less chance for paperwork to catch the TNP358’s edges when being passed across a table—so documents remain clean and professional in appearance.
Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the new TNP358 interconnect box, “The TNP358 addresses a variety of commonly encountered situations in the contemporary meeting or presentation space. The unit’s HDMI connector makes it fast and easy to connect a laptop computer into a presentation system while simultaneously being powered by one of two AC outlets. With the dual USB charging ports, meeting participants can readily charge their tablets or smartphones and keep them nearby and ready for quick access. Further, the TNP358 is one of many solutions available in the TNP product line that can be customized with additional connectivity options. The end result is a versatile presentation space solution that I’m confident will be ‘right at home’ in a wide range of business and education environments.”
