These products, introduced within the past year, were featured at the Cabling Systems Exhibition last month in Anaheim, CA.
Pipe grounding clamps
This series of universal pipe clamps includes a mechanical connector to connect ground conductors #6 through 250 MCM, and have a pipe range of 8 to 12 inches. Clamps can also be connected to ground conductors via exothermic connections or standard compression lugs. The clamps provide bi-directional grounding capabilities, making them suitable for large-diameter pipes. They are rated for direct burial.

Cable support with installation flexibility
The Caddy CableCat CAT-CM is a cable-support system that offers installation flexibility and provides a convenient pathway for wires and cables in applications where cable tray is traditionally used. Specially designed U-hooks and double J-hooks have large-diameter, rounded support surfaces/edges to avoid overbending and kinking of cables. The U-hooks are available in a range of sizes for different cable-capacity needs. The CAT-CM has three installation options: The rod-mounted option allows for field assembly of the hooks onto All-Thread Rod; the cantilever-mounted option consists of U-hooks being mounted on brackets; the strut-mounted option is accomplished by assembling the hooks to strut for a cost-effective alternative to center-rail cable tray and wire-basket systems.
Double-hinged wall-mount cabinet
Designed for applications where security and accessibility are both required and floor space is at a premium, this cabinet can mount to a wall or a pole (with an optional pole-mounting kit). The cabinet can be left- or right-hinged and ships completely assembled, ready to mount. It is available in 2-, 3-, and 4-foot heights, and 15- and 25-inch depths. The 2- and 3-foot cabinets are rated for 150-pound loads and the 4-foot cabinet for 200-pound loads.
The V-Hub conference phone is a full-duplex, simultaneous, two-way communication conference phone that provides clean, clear sound. It includes three omni-directional microphones, a recessed LCD display, 10-number speed dial, special calling functions, and a three-step setup process. The phone also includes a mute button and a flash button for special calling functions.
Water-blocked, tight-buffer I/O cables
The indoor/outdoor tight-buffer OFNR-rated line of optical-fiber cables now includes a dry water-blocking functionality. This new design complies with the Bellcore/Telcordia GR-20 requirements for water-blocking of outside plant cables, while allowing for a completely dry cable that can also be used indoors. The cables have been verified by Underwriters Laboratories to meet UL-1581 for sunlight and weather resistance. They are available in fiber counts from 2 to 144.
EFM optical networking unit
The RA21 Optical Networking Unit is an Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) product that enables reliable optical Ethernet services to business and residential users through a point-to-point fiber-based network infrastructure. It provides a comprehensive set of operation, administration, and maintenance (OAM) features that address the feature recommendations outlined in the 802.3ah standard. The RA21 ONU is a customer-premises product that provides a 100-Mbit/sec fiber connection from the service provider's network to a 10/100-Mbit/sec autonegotiating connection to the enterprise network.
