Designed for closed-circuit television (CCTV) installations, the VideoEase LongRange active receiver balun is billed as a "plug-and-forget" distance extender for security and surveillance applications. LongReach supports up to 5,000 feet of video coverage via Category 5 cable when ..used with MuxLab's passive CCTV balun at the camera end, thereby eliminating the need for an active transmitter balun. The product is designed to automatically adjust picture sharpness and luminosity regardless of cable length. LongReach is suited for school campuses, airports, manufacturing facilities, and parking lots. It supports NTSC and PAL television broadcast standards, and features diagnostic LEDs that indicate the presence of power, video, and ground loop problems. Connecting directly to a DVR, CCTV multiplexer, or switcher, the device is powered by a standard 24-V AC power source (not included).

Billed as the industry's first small-form-factor-pluggable (SFP) transceiver offering Gigabit Ethernet speeds over Category 5 cable, this device uses a ..conventional 8-pin modular interface that fits into industry-standard, MSA-compliant SFP equipment. The transceiver is designed to eliminate the need for a copper or fiber cabling upgrade to achieve gigabit, bi-directional communication. The manufacturer says its transceiver is ideal for LAN backbones or drops of up to 325 feet where gigabit performance is needed over Category 5 cable. The device, compliant with industry standards including IEEE 802.3 1000Base-T, operates from a single 3.3-V power supply, and is packaged in a die cast metal housing designed to inhibit EMI and RFI.

A collaborative effort between Delphi Thermal Solutions Group and Chatsworth Products, the CPI Delphi Enclosure Blower is designed to lower heat by up to 15° F, with 40 to 50% more cooling efficiency than traditional solutions. On a raised floor, the blower delivers the coldest plenum air directly to the server fronts ..where cooling air intakes are located. On a solid floor, the blower assists cooling by routing the colder air from the floor up to the equipment air intakes. Designed for 50,000 hours of service life, the blower features a backward-inclined fan in a 20-pound polymer housing. The unit is rack-mountable in any industry-standard 19-inch enclosure, and requires only 2 RMUs or less of space.
