        Crestron® One-Touch Cable Retractors (FT2A-CBLR-1T Series) offer a refined cable management solution for use with Crestron FT2 ELEC Series FlipTops™. Each cable pulls out smoothly up to 5 ft (1.5 m), and retracts gently back into the FlipTop™ with the touch of a button. The button on each module is backlit for visibility in a darkened room and is labeled with an international symbol icon indicating the connection type.

        Automate one-touch retractors by connecting the retractors in a FlipTop to a control system and a switch or to a DMPS via a single Cresnet cable. Custom programming can trigger all the cables to retract after five minutes of no video being detected.

        The retractor mechanism allows for a compact design that is ideal for applications where vertical clearance is limited beneath the table.

        Each One-Touch Cable Retractor is composed of a retractor enclosure and pass-through module. The enclosure attaches to the FlipTop chassis beneath the table, while the module installs in the top of the FlipTop. A cable tail is provided below the table for connection to a DM® transmitter or similar interface device.1

        The pass-through module occupies two module slots within the FlipTop. The retractor enclosure slides onto the side of the FlipTop chassis beneath the table and locks into place with a snap. Retractors normally install at the left and right ends of a module row but may also be installed in the middle of a row by adding an FT2A-CBLR-BRKT series mid-row adapter bracket (one per row, each sold separately).

        The following one-touch, retractable HDMI®  cable is offered:

        FT2A‑CBLR‑1T-HD: 10.2 Gbps HDMI cable with a male HDMI Type A connector at both ends.

        The following 4K compatible cables offered feature a minimum TMDS bandwidth of 18 Gbps to support ultra high-definition digital video signals up to 4K60 4:4:4. Active circuitry is employed for optimal performance.

        • FT2A‑CBLR‑1T‑4K‑USBC‑HD: Cable with a male USB Type-C® connector at the source end above the table and a male HDMI Type A connector at the sink end below the table; converts USB-C to HDMI to allow connection of a USB-C source to an HDMI input.1


        A USB-C power module is available to support charging devices:

        FT2A-CBLR-1T-USBC-PWR: USB Type-C cable with a male connector at the source end above the table and a male USB Type-C connector at the sink end connected to a 60 W USB-C adapter below the table (not included).

        Additional models are available to support analog and data signals. These cable retractors are passive.

         

        • FT2A‑CBLR‑1T‑VGA: VGA cable with a male HD15 connector at both ends; supports resolutions up to Full HD 1080p.
        • FT2A‑CBLR‑1T‑AUDIO: Unbalanced stereo audio cable with a male 3.5 mm mini-TRS connector at both ends.
        • FT2A‑CBLR‑1T‑CAT6: CAT6 LAN cable with a male RJ‑45 connector at both ends.
        • FT2A‑CBLR‑1T‑USB: USB 2.0 cable USB Type-A male to USB Type-B male under the table to support connection to a codec or extender.


        NOTE: FT2A‑CBLR‑1T series retractors are only compatible with FT2 ELEC series FlipTops. They are not compatible with FT2 MECH series FlipTops. See also the FT2A‑CBLR‑GR Series Gravity Cable Retractors for a lower cost alternative.
