Belden Strengthens FX Fusion Splice-On Connector Line with GR-Rated Solutions
Suited for outdoor environments, connectors combine the benefits of fusion splicing with the simplicity of field-installable connectors
Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, is excited to announce additions to its
FiberExpress (FX) Fusion Splice-On Connector line, which presents alternatives to mechanical splicing.
SC 2mm and SC 900um connectors in the FX Fusion Splice-On Connector family not only meet ANSI/TIA-568-D3 requirements, but now also meet GR-326/1081 requirements as well. This ensures that – unlike mechanical splice connectors – these connectors will perform well outdoors in telecommunications plant environments.
The FX Fusion Splice-On Connector combines the benefits of fusion splicing with the simplicity of field-installable connectors. Allowing installers to ditch the old, time-consuming method of mechanical splice connectors, the FX Fusion Splice-On Connector supports more efficient deployment and easier termination. Instead of relying on index matching gel to fill gaps, fibers are precisely aligned through an automated process to provide better performance than a mechanical splice, with maximum insertion loss of 0.20 dB as compared to 0.50 dB (OM4). Automated splicing tools provide instant, quality feedback for successful termination.
As compared to mechanical splice connectors, FX Fusion Splice-On Connectors can reduce total installed costs by 20% through lower material and labor expenses. They also offer a 3% increase on first pass yields, translating to less field rework.
No crimping, polishing or adhesives are required for termination. Fewer splice management accessories are also required during installation – the FX Fusion Splice-On Connector eliminates the need for splice enclosures and splice trays. The fiber ferrule is ready for termination, with a pre-cleaved and pre-cleaned fiber stub. The connector also allows exact channel lengths to be run, eliminating cable shorts and excess slack.
The FX Fusion Splice-On Connector can be used with nearly all fusion splicers, and is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. SC 2mm and SC 900um connectors are available in OM1, OM3/4, OM4, OS2 or OS2 APC versions. Standard and precision installation toolkits are also available, along with standard and precision cleavers and universal splice holders.
Only Belden’s innovative enterprise connectivity solutions take a universal approach to customers’ enterprises, resolving signal transmission needs with IP- and legacy-based solutions that enable a smooth migration to convergence. Belden’s extensive portfolio spans LAN, data centers, building automation and security and access control to keep information running smoothly. Outstanding global service and support capabilities and application-specific warranty programs complete Belden’s unique offering.

Most ALR screen surfaces are manufactured to reflect off-axis ambient light away from the viewer and traditionally can hotspot with ultra-short throw projection. TecVision XH800X UST ALR rejects up to 57% of off-axis ambient light and has a reasonable gain of 0.8 without sacrificing projection light. It also reduces hot spotting issues which are often seen in short throw projection. Short throw projection is an important tool in classrooms, where the lights need to be kept on for students and instructors to work together. TecVision XH800X UST ALR will dramatically increase the effectiveness of these classrooms. See XH800X UST ALR in action at InfoComm 2018. Visit Draper in booth 2347 June 6 – 8, 2018.

Monitor Audio Vecta Series
The Vecta V240 is a stylish, compact and versatile model with weather resistant properties. Cleverly combining architectural aesthetics with innovation and the high quality professional audio performance that Monitor Audio is renowned for, installers now have a solution that can be used both inside and out.
For the Vecta V240, Monitor Audio has mounted dual 4″ C-CAM metal cone drives to the curved baffle to ensure a controlled sound field is delivered. This minimizes ceiling or wall reflections when mounted under eaves or in a corner, while still being wide enough for superior coverage when wall-mounted. The centrally mounted Gold C-CAM tweeter is horn loaded to ensure dispersion at the crossover point matches the mid-range, providing a smooth off axis frequency response.
The Vecta V240 offers incredible versatility and simple installation. Using cleverly designed brackets and a single point automatic connection system, Vecta can be quickly and easily mounted horizontally or vertically. Installers fix the bracket to the wall, and then simply drop the speaker in place and secure with a single screw. Not only does this installation method save integrators’ time, but it also simplifies the complexity of installing speakers at height or at difficult angles.
Monitor Audio combines versatility, style and audio performance with its New Vecta speaker.

Featured Products to Include AV Distribution, Next-Generation Processors, a Remote Management System, and Video-over-IP System
RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, today announced its product lineup for InfoComm 2018, where the company will be showing a range of new AV products designed to provide dealers with comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for the commercial market. The new products, along with the complete lineup of RTI control and automation solutions, will be on display in booth N422, June 6-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We’ve been gaining momentum in the commercial space as our product offerings continue to evolve to meet the demands of offices, hotels, and restaurants,” said RTI CEO Ed McConaghay. “Our new line of AV distribution products combined with our custom control solutions position RTI perfectly for the commercial market, and we’re delighted to be showing them at InfoComm 2018.”
At InfoComm 2018, RTI will showcase new HDMI, HDBaseT, and modular video matrix switchers, presentation switchers, extenders, and more. These new products will become an extension of the RTI control ecosystem, for a robust end-to-end solution. Bringing these solutions together with a remote management solution and video-over-IP (VoIP) system, RTI can now provide integrators with everything they need for AV control and automation in the commercial environment.
A key advantage offered by RTI to its dealers is the new RTiQ, a powerful remote management solution for RTI systems that makes it simple to monitor clients’ AV installations. RTiQ can be configured to monitor components controlled by an RTI XP control processor. Dealers can monitor the status of these devices via a dashboard from anywhere in the world. If a failure occurs, dealers can receive email and text notifications to alert them and they can remotely trigger an action to restore the failed system or component. Customizable actions include rebooting devices, running macros, or sending commands.
With the acquisition of the Miravue product line earlier this year, RTI can now lower commercial customers’ AV distribution costs with the VIP-1 Video-over-IP system, which acts as a transmitter and receiver in one versatile device. Dramatically reducing cabling and installation time, the RTI Miravue VIP-1 enables powerful, scalable AV distribution over Ethernet, and wireless networking while supporting HDMI/HDCP 1.x and 2.x video sources with ultra-low latency. In addition, network video streams from IP cameras may be viewed without the need for additional equipment. The VIP-1’s built-in scaler matches the displays’ maximum resolution, while also providing stereo downmixing and lip-sync adjustment.
At InfoComm 2018, RTI will also showcase its new, upgraded XP-6s and XP-8v advanced control processors. Offering all the advanced control options of their predecessors, they have been upgraded with new i.MX53 processors and more memory for increased processing power in commercial projects. The XP-6s has been enhanced with a new rack-mountable design, and the XP-8v now features an HDMI output to enable a customizable on-screen display (OSD) control interface.
Perfect for sports bars and commercial installations, the XP‑6s features eight times more RAM memory and four times more internal nonvolatile Flash memory, bringing both up to a whopping 512MB. The XP-6s’ new rack-mountable design allows for simple installation with the myriad A/V, security, and environmental systems used in today’s commercial installations.
Designed for larger-scale and complex projects, the XP-8v combines a real-time, multi-tasking operating system with tremendous expandability. Control interface options include two-way RS‑232, routable IR, Ethernet, and relay control. Additionally, the XP-8v incorporates an astronomical clock, allowing for time-based events and timers to trigger commands and macros.
