Commercial Integrator recognizes manufacturers for technological innovation
St. Louis, Missouri – Feb. 9, 2017 – Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, is proud to announce that it received an innovation award for REVConnect, a new connectivity system. The Top New Technology (TNT) Award was presented by Commercial Integratorin the category of Specialty AV Cables or Connectors. This is REVConnect’s second award, following the Platinum Innovators Award received from Cabling Installation & Maintenance in September 2016.
The TNT Awards annually recognize new and outstanding products and services exhibited at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show in Amsterdam. A team of judges select the top products and services across 15 commercial categories and five residential categories. Solutions that stand out for offering technological innovation, benefits to integrators and benefits to end-users are honored.
Released in September 2016, REVConnect is a revolutionary new RJ45 connectivity system unlike any other. Before the launch of REVConnect, RJ45 connections required a lengthy and arduous punch-down or single-wire crimping process. Now, Ethernet cables of all types (Category 5e through Category 6A, shielded and unshielded) can terminate onto a single “core” end that is compatible with eight RJ45 modules, including jacks and plugs. Before REVConnect, an entire bag of tools was needed to support terminations required for each connector type. Now, one REVConnect tool completes the entire process – including cable prep – simplifying termination and reducing installation time.
REVConnect was created to address a critical need: providing integrators with reliable, easy and versatile terminations that support IP convergence over a range of applications, from wired LANs to digital signage, mixing consoles, building automation and LED lighting systems.
