HellermannTyton (www.hellermann.tyton.com) recently introduced Home Network Sciences, a structured cabling system designed specifically for residential, small office/home office (SOHO), and multi-dwelling unit applications. Home Network Sciences offers the technology needed to meet Category 6 and 5e standards, the company says, along with the TIA/EIA-570A residential communications standard.
"Home Network Sciences allows for efficient telephone distribution, video and television distribution, whole-house audio, computer networking using DSL and cable modems, internet networking, and customized multimedia wall plates," the company said in a release announcing the system.
"A UL-listed enclosure is designed for installation flexibility with strategically located knockouts around the enclosure," the release continued. "The unit also features a unique grid-spacing design which works together with the system's modules to eliminate the need for plastic push-lock pins which can hinder installation. The easy-to-install Home Network Sciences system allows for the modules to be quickly hung and secured on the grid."
Other characteristics of the system include easily identifiable labeling, and a computer-keystone data module that accepts up to eight Category 6 or 5e jacks or keystone modules.
Hubs, switches, and routers are also available as part of the Home Network Sciences system.
