The Crestron® FT2‑700‑MECH and FT2‑700‑MECH‑PTL FlipTop™ cable management systems install into a table or other horizontal surface to provide modular tabletop connectivity. The FT2‑700‑MECH series feature a one touch lid that retracts fully and disappears with the tap of a button. When the lid is retracted, 12 module slots are arranged in two rows of six. The flexible modular design may also be customized with an assortment of Crestron accessories. For more information about the accessories, please visit www.crestron.com/Crestron‑FlipTops. To configure your FlipTop, launch the FlipTop Configuration Tool.
All connections reside at the top surface, clearly visible and readily accessible. A selection of modular components enables custom configuration and quick installation. Precision fit and finish affords functionality and a clean appearance with machined metal surfaces finished in a choice of black or alloy.
The FT2‑700‑MECH‑PTL utilizes a pass-through lid which allows cables to be fully extended while the lid is closed.
Quick and Simple Tabletop Installation
Thoughtful installation features and accessories save time and effort. Mounting the FlipTop is as simple as cutting the hole, placing the unit, and turning four screws to engage the swiveling dogs that secure the FlipTop in place. Then install the drop in modules and add any under table accessories. To complete the installation, the top cover bezel snaps into place magnetically.
The FT2‑700‑MECH offers a perfect upgrade to older Crestron FlipTop systems and similar third party products. It easily replaces a Crestron FT‑600 series FlipTop or Extron® Cable Cubby® 700 device without any additional cutting required. A mounting surface up to 1 3/4 in. (44 mm) thick is allowed.
See also the FT2‑700‑ELEC series FlipTop systems for alternative FT2 FlipTop series models with advanced features, including one-touch cable retractors, active connector plates, USB charging, and backlit symbol icons.
The FT2‑700‑MECH delivers a customizable connectivity solution with easy-to-install accessories such as pull out cables, flush mount connectors, and AC power outlets. The final installation provides one smooth, contiguous surface with no visible gaps or screws, and the modules may be rearranged at any time.
Modules and Accessories
NOTE: All modules and accessories are sold separately and are not included in the FT2‑700‑MECH.
- Pass-Through Cables and Cable Pass -Through Plates: The pass-through cables and plates work together to offer a simple cable management solution. Each pass-through cable installs in the FlipTop assembly using a cable pass-through plate module, which allows the cable to be pulled out smoothly for use and then dropped back into the FlipTop. For details, refer to the FT2A‑CBL‑PT and FT2A‑PLT‑PT‑10 product pages.
- Gravity Cable Retractors: Gravity cable retractors employ a precision gravity-assisted track and pulley mechanism housed within a narrow, vertical enclosure that extends beneath the FlipTop chassis. They may be installed in the middle of a row by adding an FT2A‑CBLR‑BRKT‑700 mid-row adapter bracket (sold separately).1, 2 For details, refer to the FT2A‑CBLR‑GR product page.
