About Your Tilt N Plug Interconnect Box New leaf-spring replaces gas shock Standard high-quality matte black finish Pop-up dampening for smooth operation Custom finishes available (contact ALTINEX for options and pricing) Simple, drop-in installation The TNP520 and TNP528 are compact interconnect solutions designed for mounting into tables, podiums, or other furniture as part of a presentation system. Inputs are accessed by pushing down on the top cover allowing the units to tilt open. The inputs are hidden by pressing down on the top cover until the latching mechanism engages. In the closed positions, the top covers lie flush with the tabletop. Signals are passed through the sectional plates to the underside of the table via cables with mating connectors on the opposite end. For example, an RJ-45 F input connector is terminated in an RJ-45 M connector at the end of a 6 ft (2 m) cable. The TNP520 is empty with AC power only, but provides slots for 4 single-slot sectional plates that can be configured with various multimedia inputs. See our website for all input plate options. The TNP528 is a package that covers the basic needs of many users and ships complete with 2 standard U.S. power receptacles, 2 computer video (15-pin HD) plus 2 audio (3.5 mm), 2 standard HDMI, 2 network (RJ-45), and 1 USB (Type A) input connectors.

Remember, the devices plugged into the AC power connectors should not draw more than 12A AC. 8. Troubleshooting Guide The Tilt N Plug supplied was carefully tested and no problems were detected. However, we would like to offer the following suggestions: Switcher Symptom Resolution Signal quality is poor. 1. Please make sure that the highest quality video and network cables are used. 2. The TNP is a passive unit and does not alter signals in any way. If there is suspected problem with the signal quality, check the quality of the cables coming into and the TNP and connecting to the output of the TNP. If they are of low quality or improperly assembled, this will affect the overall quality of the signal. Damaged power cord 1. Make sure that no cable or power cord is damaged or pinched. 2. If there has been damage, do not use the Tilt N Plug. Please call the ALTINEX Customer Service Department at (714) 990-2300 to have the unit repaired. Unit raises too slowly 1. If the unit does not rise into position correctly, check the service loops for the signal and power cords on the bottom of the unit. If the service loop is too small the cables will counteract the spring trying to raise the unit into position. Unit tilts up too fast 1. If the unit rises into position too fast, check the service loops for the signal and power cords on the bottom of the unit. If the service loop is too large and the cables are putting upward pressure on the unit, the unit will tilt up too fast. Unit does not close all the way 1. If the unit does not close flush with the bezel, check the service loops for the signal and power cords on the bottom of the unit. If the service loop is putting upward pressure in the unit, the unit will not be able to seat all the way down.
