Connection Plates and control
From simple input plates to the Synergy Range of controllers
iKON’s portfolio is impressive
PRESS RELEASE JUNE 2011
Reliability through quality and simplicity is the ethos of iKON AVS – which is perfectly summed up in the practicality with which innovations have been applied to their ranges of connection plates.
With a wide selection of finishes from brushed aluminium through chrome to traditional white available on robust metal or high quality panels iKON’s range of input plates is impressive. Practical input from installers is evident in neat designs that make the plates appear both quick and easy to install yet robust enough to withstand the rigors of daily use. Yet better news is that for those with specific needs the iKON manufacturing unit in the West Midlands is able to provide custom solutions. Check out the web site at www.ikonavs.com for full details but here are just a few examples.
Designed for use in Dado trunking or UK back boxes the range of pre-engraved single and double gang panels is available with a wide variety of panel and internal connector configurations. The panels utilise high quality Crabtree blanks and are machined on the back to recess the connectors, achieving both the required mounting depth as well as greatly enhancing the strength of the panels. The ranges encompass a number of variants regarding connectivity possibilities, including HDMI and USB versions with a type A USB socket on the front panel terminated onto internal screw terminals. A range of custom options and finishes are available. iKON’s confidence in quality of their Dado Panels extends to a lifetime warranty against breakage, in addition to the usual 3-year warranty.
To provide further choice iKON have a range of black and white interface units designed to fit standard 50mm and 25mm ‘snap in’ plates. David Tyas, MD at iKON, said: “We wanted to create something that would work well in all environments and these plates look good with simple white plastic frames as well as chrome, brass, stainless and, of course, black. Also they fit into the same system as a host of off the shelf networking and power products from other electrical manufacturers, so they present a simple solution for add-on features to domestic and commercial interiors.”
For those looking for robust floor plates iKON have a range of Angled Floor Plates. These quick and easy to install floor box panels are designed to fit most Crabtree, Britmac and MK floor boxes. They are specifically designed with a recess to make connecting easier and to provide a flush finish when fitted; all have screw terminals eliminating the need to solder connections on-site. The floor box panels can be supplied with either passive or active VGA and Audio connectors and there is also an add-on screw terminal AV board for any of the floor box panels.
Innovation continues with the iKON range of adaptors such as the DADO-90P a VGA to 90deg internal VGA adapter and the HDMI-BB Back to Back HDMI sockets.
iKON AVS specialise in the design and manufacture of control and connectivity products offering complete solutions ranging from standard wall plates to integrated controllers and touch screens mainly for the education and commercial sectors.
Products are designed and built at the UK HQ in Worcestershire by staff who have over 100 years’ combined electronics industry experience and who are renowned for the technical expertise and highest quality support offered both pre and post sale.
