Altinex has a new TNP358 Tilt ‘N Plug interconnect box that is designed for mounting into tables, podiums or other furniture as part of a presentation system.
The TNP358 is available in both black or brushed aluminum finishes and includes dual AC power sockets, two charging USB ports, plus HDMI and audio connectors. To patch a computer into the AV presentation system, just run an HDMI cable from the laptop to the TNP358’s HDMI connector and it sends both sound and picture over a single cable.
The TNP358’s has 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.
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. Altinex says that this fit also means less chance for paperwork to catch the TNP358’s edges when being passed across a table.
The TNP358 lists for $672. All the technical specs are here.
