Legrand Adds New Active High-Speed Hdmi Cables to Support 4k/Ultra Hd Uncompressed Signals


MIDDLETOWN, Pa. December 15, 2015 – Legrand has introduced 28 new On-Q A/V cable assembly products, as well as 11 new On-Q Compression F Connector products to its extensive AV accessory product line, furthering its mission to provide electrical and low-voltage professionals with a single-source solution of connectivity products for residential and light commercial installations.  Legrand is the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures.
           “The new products answer the industry’s call for more competitively priced, professional grade products required for everyday projects,” said Fritz Werder, VP & General Manager for the company’s On-Q and Nuvo lines.  Today’s news follows the company’s recent launch of a cable tie family and its pricing realignment of low voltage rings announced earlier this year.
          “By expanding our extensive line of structured wiring and connectivity products, we are providing dealers and integrators with all they need in terms of cabling, connectors and support. This one-stop shop obviously adds convenience and helps dealers to consolidate and maximize their purchasing power with our channel partners,” said Werder.  
   The 28 new A/V cables include:
  • 5mm
  • Toslink 
  • Universal 2 and 3 
  • Composite video
  • Adapters and tools
        All cables, except for the adapter products, are U.L. tri-Rated (CMG/CLx/FT4) for code compliant in-wall installation. The Universal 2 & 3 cables also include color bands matching the CTA 863 Home Theater Color Code specification, reducing the amount of customer support necessary for both distributors and installers. All 3.5mm cables, including adapters, feature “CaseConnect,” a standoff that allows for a secure connection through most mobile device cases.
           Among the 11 new Compression F Connectors are Quad F plugs, Quad right angle F plugs, Quad 3GHz F jacks, Quad Shield RCA plugs, Quad Shield right angle RCA plugs, Quad Shield BNC plugs and 1GHz coupler SKUs. All have the ability to terminate on both RG6 and RG6 Quad shield and meet or exceed the specifications of both cable and satellite service providers. They are sold in convenient packs of 10 and 50, and a single adjustable compression tool, also among the new offerings, can be used for attaching the entire connector line.
