BOTHEL, Wash., October 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Leviton today announced that its new FLX-1™ technology and VXC™ coupler and plenum assemblies have been recognized among the best in the industry by the 2022 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards. The stellar third-party jury included cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with extensive professional experience. Leviton received two gold level awards.
“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Leviton on its Gold Level award winner status,” said the Cabling Installation & Maintenance editor. Patrick McLaughlin. “This competitive and 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 punching or other proprietary tools. The set also includes a standard size plug and flexible stranded patch cord. The VXC assembly is plenum rated and can be used in riser and plenum applications.
To assist installers, Leviton engineers have developed FLX-1, advanced polymer technology integrated 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 stresses. The FLX-1 is available with LANmark™-SST Cat 6A UTP cable, LM-RDT™ Cat 6A reduced diameter UTP cable and LANmark™-1000 Cat 6 UTP cable.
