AXIS M10, a series of small “smart” network cameras, are designed for securing small businesses, boutiques, restaurants, hotels and residences. All three models (M1011, M1011-W, and M1031-W) are designed to provide excellent video quality at 30 frames per second in VGA resolution. The M1011-W and M1031-W, with a built-in antenna, offer the option of connecting over IEEE 802.11g and 802.11b wireless interfaces. The M1031-W additionally features a passive infrared (PIR) sensor for detecting movement, including in the dark, and a white LED light for illuminating the scene automatically or when requested by the user. Other features include 2-way audio support with an integrated microphone and speaker, allowing remote listening in on an area as well as communication with individuals directly or using uploaded or recorded audio clips. All cameras in the series provide multiple, individually configurable, high-resolution video streams in H.264, Motion JPEG, and MPEG-4 Part 2 at full frame rate. H.264 compression enables optimization of storage and bandwidth efficiency by significantly reducing the bit rate. Using progressive scan technology, the cameras provide VGA images of moving objects without motion blur.

ezINTERCONNECT optical fiber cables are designed for FTTH MDU applications. These ruggedized indoor cables, available in standard and heavy-duty designs, feature BendBright-XS bend-insensitive singlemode optical fiber, an all-glass fiber designed to exceed the ITU-T G.657.B standard's bending requirements while maintaining backward compatibility with existing single-mode fibers (ITU-T G.652.D). When used according to recommended prac-tices, the ezINTERCONNECT cables support a variety of installation methods, including stapling. The standard design is 2.9 mm in diameter, while the heavy-duty design is 4.8 mm in diameter and provides an added level of protection for more rigorous installation conditions, including small bend radii created by tight routing conditions. Both products are flame-rated and available with connectors.

Power cables team with low voltage

Th 309358
Click here to enlarge image

SIMTRA power cables feature patented, ferrite-barrier technology that allows them to be distributed and installed in the same conduit or in parallel locations with low-voltage audio, video, or network cables. To eliminate the need for separate runs, the conductors in SMITRA power cables are surrounded by a patented ferrite compound that provides a barrier within the cable to attenuate surges and transients, virtually eliminating interference to the adjacent low-voltage cabling. Through patented technology, SIMTRA cables are designed to help eliminate transients and interference, making them suitable for all-in-one cabling installations involving data, audio, video, or speaker wire. They are also designed for installations where space or access for cable runs is limited. These UL-listed cables are available in TC or NM-B UL-rated versions for permanent installation in a variety of applications, and conform with several NEC guidelines. They are available with 3 to 6 THHN/THWN conductors at 16 AWG to 6 AWG in a UL-rated, flame retardant, orange PVC jacket. In addition to single-element versions, SIMTRA power cables are also available in Fusion-and HVAC-bundled versions for simplified installation of power and low-voltage cables in a single run or pull.

To complement the launch of CasaLight Xtreme fiber and the Verticasa MDU cabling system in North America, Prysmian has introduced a range of connectivity accessories designed for North American MDU applications. Collectively, these MDU connectivity accessories will be promoted under the new CasaLink system brand name. The CasaLink system includes MDU distribution cabinets, riser boxes, horizontal distribution and passive optical splitter boxes, customer termination boxes, and pre-terminated customer drop cables. Initial products include the new “Multi Operator MDU Distribution Box” (MMDB), which offers the ability to cross-connect the internal MDU cabling system to multiple external network providers. Building owners can construct and own the internal cabling infrastructure with a crossconnect point in the basement of the building, which is modular and designed for simplified modification or expansion. This feature not gives residential customers the opportunity to connect to different FTTH providers while eliminating the need for any changes to the interna fiber infrastructure. CasaLink also includes a range of connectivity solutions for cable management in the riser, horizontal distribution and customer premise termination.

This transparent adapter design offers providers and installers a way to locate half-latched or unlatched connectors. The clear adapters let you spot the problem area by sight or by creating a laser light path with a LED. Once the break in the connection is found, workers can quickly reconnect unlatched connectors, restoring connections in a timely manner. These transparent adapters, which are compliant with Telcordia, ANSI, TIA/EIA, NTT and JIS, also feature high-precision alignment, low insertion and return loss, and flange options.

Power Commander Plus Power Distribution Units are designed to provide high-density power distribution for data center equipment racks, cabinets, and enclosures. Units include: Single-phase, 50 Amp, 120-volt output; 3-phase, 60 Amp, 120-volt output; 3-phase, 60 Amp, 208-volt utput. Three-phase units are available with NEMA or IEC receptacles on the output, meaning there is no need to change power cables when servers are changed from 120 to 208 volts (or vice versa). Each unit has three UL489-listed circuit breakers for overload protection, and available with a black or white cover designed to help identify primary and secondary power in a redundant power scheme. The power cord exits the front face of the unit for maximum flexibility when installing in data racks. A “hook” mounting bracket allows the technician to hang the PDU on one mounting screw and then install the other mounting screw. Blue LEDs indicate power status for each circuit.
