NEW Table Boxes
Renowned in the industry for elegant and functional table boxes, FSR is adding a line of DIGITAL models to the T3 series. Three new versions, T3-DV2S, T3-DV2S-1B and the T3-DV2S-2B will be featured. Other new table boxes include an all new IPS Flexible unit, and two new additions specifically designed for BOSE speakers.
NEW SS-USB-CHRG snap in USB charger
FSR rounds out its comprehensive line of charging solutions for iPhone®, iPad®, Android or any smart device with the new SS-USB-CHRG Keystone DC to USB Charger. The Charger, a perfect accessory to the New Digital T3 table boxes, incorporates the necessary firmware to communicate with any device and provide the correct charging wattage, up to a full 12 watts. The SS-USB-CHRG comes complete with a universal power supply; an optional SS-USB-CHRG PS6 power supply capable of remotely powering up to six units simultaneously from 165 feet via 16AWG cable is available. The slim keystone design means that the SS-USB-CHRG can be easily mounted in any of FSR's Intelligent Plate Solutions (IPS) wall plates, table boxes, floor boxes, and other infrastructure solutions that accept standard keystone snap-ins.
NEW HuddleVU Collaboration Tables
FSR continues to expand the highly successful HuddleVU collaboration systems with a new line of tables built to accommodate HuddleVU 4, 5 and 6 user configurations. Designed to amaze with built-in AV features, all equipment is plug and play, eliminating the need to load custom applications or software.
The new tables provide collaboration opportunities in any number of environments with both table and counter height versions. The table base provides an area for mounting all HuddleVU equipment, and a vertical rear panel can be finished for open office environments. The units are available in stock light maple finishes to blend with any décor, but custom finishes are available upon request.
The new HuddleVU Dugout seats up to 12 users who can share their information on one or two large monitor screens. The dual height tables seat the users at two viewing levels to maximize space, reduce visual obstructions and provide seating comfort. Two additional seating areas can be utilized for handicapped seating as required. The inner table boxes furnish AC Power, Device charging, AV Connectivity and Control while the outer table has AC power and device charging. There are a variety of table finishes available as well as upholstery styles to match existing décor.

NEW HDBaseT Product Line
FSR's new HDBaseT line offers a complete series that runs from Matrix switchers to extenders. InfoComm will see the premiere of four HDBaseT Extenders; the HD-H-SP-Tx, HD-H-SP-Rx, HD-HLB-SP-Tx and the HD-HAUD-SP-Rx. FSR's HDBaseT devices handle video resolutions up to 1080p and 4K x 2K (3840 x 2160 @30Hz) sending Video, Audio, Control (IR RS-232), POE (802.11af), and Ethernet via 1 CAT-6A Shielded Cable 100 meters.
NEW LITE-IT Enclosure Box Light
FSR's new LITE-IT easily provides lighting in floor, wall and ceiling boxes, or anywhere a work light is needed. This little light securely fastens to any ferrous metal surface via a "rare earth" magnetic mounting. A timed circuit automatically turns LITE-IT off after 75 seconds, and its anti-retrigger circuit prevents it from staying on even if the switch is held continuously. LITE-IT's warm 3000K LED color for eye comfort provides over 12 Lumens of light output (20% more than a standard PR-2 flashlight bulb), and its super-efficient wide angle dual LED's furnish a uniform lighting pattern with uniform brightness to very end of battery life. High-quality alkaline batteries are included and pre-installed and provide 4+ years of typical usage from a single pair of batteries (Based on 2 operations per day, 5 days per week, 52 weeks per year).
NEW TBRT Cable Retractors
Balancing form and function, the new TBRT Cable Retractors make tangle-free cable management an easy task. This cable management system offers convenience as well as cable storage and protection, hiding unsightly cables when not in use. The cables can be quickly deployed by the user and extend to any length, up to four feet. A simple pull and release of the extended cable is all that is needed to return the cable to the protective reel. An "anti-whip" damping mechanism controls the speed of the cable return as it retracts. No button release is required.
The TBRT assemblies can be ordered in HDMI (4 color coded cables available), HD-15 VGA, 1/8" Stereo Audio, or CAT-6. All cables are of highest quality and are tested for longevity. When used with the FSR T-6 series Table Boxes, the T6-LB-RTMKT adapter kit is available and allows mounting of up to four TBRT cable retractor assemblies below the T6 Table Boxes.
NEW Wall Plate
Universally known for top-notch and practical Wall Plates, FSR enhances its selection with the SS-PHDMI HDMI Wall Plate. Angled connectors make easy work by allowing installation in shallow connection boxes.
NEW FLEX Control Builder
This new FLEX Control Builder is a configuration tool that offers a host of features, including custom graphics for screen and buttons, resizable button graphics, input window (dialers supported), multiple bar graph placement, the freedom to save and retrieve projects to any location, as well as the ability to copy and paste from one project to another.
