Leviton announced today that its new FLX-1™ technology and VXC™ Coupler and Plenum Assemblies were recognized among the best in the industry by the 2022 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards. The stellar third-party judging panel included cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators, and managers with vast professional experience. Leviton was recognized with two Gold Level awards.
"On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Leviton on their Gold Level honoree status," said Cabling Installation & Maintenance's Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin. "This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most original and innovative products in the industry."
Leviton's VXC Coupler and Plenum Assemblies create a cost-effective method for terminating cables for wireless access points, video cameras, and other ceiling mounted devices. This Cat 6A rated assembly includes a VXC Coupler (also sold separately) that creates a durable connection without the need for punchdown or other proprietary tools. The assembly also includes a standard size plug and flexible stranded patch cable. The VXC Assembly is plenum-rated and can be used in riser and plenum applications.
To help installers, Leviton engineers developed FLX-1, an advanced polymer technology built into the cable jacket of select Berk-Tek plenum cables that improves flexibility, making cables easier to bend, less likely to kink, and less susceptible to installation stress. FLX-1 is available with LANmark™-SST Cat 6A UTP Cable, reduced diameter LM-RDT™ Cat 6A UTP Cable, and LANmark™-1000 Cat 6 UTP Cable.
