Leviton has just announced a new solution for IP device installations where traditional wallplates are difficult to install or installation is not possible. These two innovative In-Wall and In-Ceiling brackets help support LAN connections for IP devices, while providing testable and permanent locations. Brackets are ideal for wireless access points (WAPs), IP clocks, and security cameras, but can support a large range of other IP devices.
The new In-Wall and In-ceiling brackets offer not just a fixed location for data connectors, but offer other advantages for commercial networks, such as more reliable connections that can be tested immediately.
Other highlights for these new solutions include:
- QuickPort In-Wall and In-Ceiling Brackets protect installed cabling by providing a stable mounting and termination point for any category-rated QuickPort connector.
In-Wall Brackets attach to standard electrical boxes, allowing the contractor to install and test the connection during initial installation. With the data connection recessed in the wall, the termination is protected throughout the rest of the construction process, and then during installation a short patch cord is used to make the final connection to the IP device.
In-Ceiling Brackets attach to drop ceiling hardware, allowing the installed cabling to be tested and warranted, even in a plenum space. With cable lances and VELCRO Brand tie downs to hold slack cable, contractors can perform the initial installation and permanent link testing, while allowing the flexibility to move the bracket to refine Wi-Fi coverage or WAN placement without needing to retest the link.
Plenum-rated QuickPort Surface-Mount Boxes attach to the In-Ceiling Brackets, which protect the termination and provide strain relief. This combination, when used with plenum-rated patch cords and cable, creates the ideal system for air-handling spaces above a drop ceiling.
In-Ceiling Brackets support TIA-162-A cabling guidelines for wireless access points, and will support the upcoming TIA-862-B Intelligent Building Systems cabling standard.
