        FT2A-CBLR-1T-4K-DP-HD

        One-Touch Cable Retractor for FT2 ELEC Series, DisplayPort to HDMI®, 18 Gbps

        Provides a retractable cable management solution for Crestron® FT2 ELEC Series FlipTops™. Features an electrically clutched, spring powered retraction mechanism, which allows each cable to be pulled out smoothly for use, and then retracted with the touch of a button. Ideal for applications with limited space beneath the table.

        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 to any length up to 5 feet (1.5 meter), 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.

        Start meetings with a clean conference table. Automate one-touch retractors by connecting all 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 retractors to “clean up the table” after five minutes of no video being detected.

        An electrically clutched, spring powered retraction 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 pull-out end of the cable passes up through the module so that the connector nests neatly in place and pulls out easily for use.

        The pass-through module occupies two module spaces 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 can 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). Installation requires 11-5/8 inches (295 mm) minimum vertical clearance below the top surface of the table. End-mounted retractors require 8-9/16 inches (218 mm) horizontal clearance to either side of the chassis, while mid-row retractors require 9 inches (228 mm) horizontal clearance to the front or rear of the chassis.

        Several models of one-touch cable retractors are offered.
