Extron Announces New Compact FOX PowerCage Enclosure and Fiber Optic Extender Modules
"Space is always a concern when you need to install multiple extenders under a table or in equipment racks," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "This new, compact enclosure provides superior thermal management, allowing you to accommodate up to eight independent HDMI extenders into a single 1U rack space. In addition, the Ethernet connection on the enclosure provides centralized management and control of each extender."
The PowerCage 401 enclosure is designed for dependable performance in mission-critical applications. Exceptional thermal management and a variable speed fan provide optimal cooling, while dual-redundant and hot-swappable power supplies ensure system reliability. The enclosure also includes dual AC power inputs for continuous connection to primary and back?up power sources. The Ethernet port on the enclosure allows insertion of RS?232, enabling system level control of the endpoints and attached devices without needing additional cabling. For space-challenged workstation applications and larger systems with multiple remote devices, the PowerCage 401 is the ideal solution.
The PowerCage 401 FOX DT HD and PowerCage 401 FOX DR HD offer many integrator and user-friendly features, including Key Minder, EDID Minder, Auto Input Memory, audio embedding and de?embedding, audio gain and attenuation adjustment, internal test patterns, and Ethernet monitoring and control. The transmitter and receiver modules are available in multimode and singlemode models, providing signal extension for moderate distances of up to 2 km (1.25 miles) over multimode fiber optic cable and extreme distances up to 30 km (18.75 miles) when using singlemode cable. The dual transmitters and receivers operate independently to support two separate devices.
