Patented Dual Speaker Modules: The Simple Approach to Managing Audio Installations

ICC Press Releases

ICC has taken its patented Dual Speaker Module and made it even better. The original Dual Speaker Module has push buttons in the front and crimp terminals in the back which required installers to crimp speaker wires. The new design has push buttons on both front and back so that a tool is no longer required to install the module. Simply push buttons, insert wires, and you are done.

The new Dual Speaker Module is in slim (HD) housing. Home automation Installers can fit up to 6 Dual Speaker Modules into one faceplate, even in Decorex style (see picture). In other words, installers can wire an entire 5.1 surround sound system using only one single gang outlet. The new Dual Speaker Module accepts wires up to 16 AWG on both sides and is available in White (WH), Ivory (IV), Almond (AL), and Black (BK) housing.

ICC has been a US manufacturer of structured cabling products for 25 years. ICC supplies a large array of voice, data, audio and video outlets to commercial and residential installers through distribution channels nationwide.

EZ Fold Wall Mount Bracket

ICC Press Releases

Wall Mount Bracket is an alternative to the heavier and pricier wall mount racks. It provides similar functionalities – to mount panels and equipment in a confined space – with less cost. The traditional wall mount bracket is too bulky to store and it is costly to ship because of the size of its fixed arms. Some manufacturers attempted to reduce the space by folding two arms with hinges only to create another deficiency – weak arms. Two arms are needed to have enough strength to support heavy panels, cables and expensive equipment and hinging the arms makes it dangerous to bear extra weight. By hinging two arms, it also sways the entire bracket and makes it unstable.

The EZ-FOLD Wall Mount Bracket is designed differently. It can be folded to only 2.5 inches in height and installers can easily stack them in the truck or store them in small spaces. When it is unfolded, the arms will extend to 15 inches to accommodate most of the equipment, panels, and plenty of cable storage space. The EZ-FOLD has two hinges for folding purposes.

Once it is unfolded and securely mounted, the two hinges do not bear weight anymore. Both arms are supported by stud or backboard mounting screws. The weight limit is also strengthened by the double-row screw mounting.

Additional features:
• Available in 2, 4, 6 and 8 rack unit sizes
• Divided hinge allows easy access every 2 RU
• Heavy duty 16 gauge steel
• Bridge lances everywhere for cable ties
• Optional cover for top and bottom

Pre-Terminated Patch Box … No Work, No Tools, No Mess

ICC Press Releases

ICC’s HiPerLink pre-terminated copper solutions is a cost-effective approach to a simple ‘plug and play’ data cabling system. It can be implemented into any network architecture; data centers, network backbone or straight to the workstation. ICC’s plug and play cassettes come with a twist … they’re modular. Other supplier’s plug and play cassettes are fixed. With ICC, installers can easily change or move modules from the cassette after installation and even with different color modules if they want.

Mobile Patch Box is the newest option in ICC’s HiPerLink solution. This patch box is portable and flexible with six open ports that can be pre-configured with CAT 6A, CAT 6, CAT 5e data, voice, fiber optic, audio, or video modules. ICC can ship the patch box bundled and simply ‘plug and play’ the cassette into a telecom or equipment room. It is designed to be installed in open environments where connectivity is not readily available; such as warehouses, tradeshow floors, conference rooms, computer training labs or POS terminals. The box can be screw mounted to a floor, wall or suspended over the ceiling. Two optional magnets can also be used to mount on metallic surfaces. It has a rugged PVC housing making it durable so that it can be left on the floor.

With the Mobile Parch Box HiPerLink solution, anyone can deploy network cabling anywhere quickly and with ease. There’s no termination required, no tools and no mess. Each cable assembly is factory terminated in Southern California, with a turn-around time of two to four weeks. They are tested to exceed TIA performance standards, test reports included and backed by ICC’s 15-Year Permanent Link Performance Limited Warranty. There is no need to worry about network downtime.

Since 1984, ICC has offered a complete line of copper and fiber solutions for commercial and residential applications including multi-port and communication outlets, cross-connect and patch cords, cable management and raceway system. ICC is committed to product quality (registered ISO 9001-2008), and providing high-performance solutions at affordable prices.
