Crestron® Cable Retractors offer a refined cable management solution for use with Crestron FlipTops™. Using cable retractors, anyone can simply reach into the FlipTop™ storage compartment and pull out the appropriate cable to connect their device. Each cable pulls out smoothly to a length of 3 feet (0.9 meter) and latches in position. A second pull of the cable releases the latch and retracts the cable back into the compartment.
Each Crestron Cable Retractor features a patented mechanism that dampens the rate of retraction to prevent the cable from whipping as it’s pulled back into the FlipTop storage compartment. The retraction speed is installer adjustable to ensure full and effortless retraction without excessive force.
Up to three, four, or six cable retractors can be installed depending on the FlipTop model (see specifications for quantity and compatibility). Spacer inserts are available to fill any unused cable retractor spaces.
Cable retractors can be oriented in two possible positions. In their default vertical position, the retractors hang straight down from the bottom of the FlipTop box allowing them to be hidden in a pedestal leg or similar space directly beneath the FlipTop. When positioned horizontally, the retractors project to the sides or front of the FlipTop, eliminating any obstruction near the floor.
A 7 foot (2.1 meter) long tail is provided at the back-end of each cable retractor beneath the tabletop. This tail can be plugged into a wall plate or floor box, or connected to a DigitalMedia™ transmitter or similar interface device mounted under the table.
Several models of cable retractors are currently offered to support HDMI® , DisplayPort , VGA, stereo audio, USB, and CAT5e connectivity. The CAT5e model is suitable for Ethernet, HDBaseT®, and DigitalMedia 8G+® applications.
Please see Note #4 for information regarding compatibility with 1st generation CBLR Cable Retractors.
