TRIBUTARIES Debuts Custom Installation Wall-Plate System

Innovative design reduces installer inventory requirements and minimizes on-site delays.

Orlando, FL–August 15, 2006–TRIBUTARIES Cable, an established leader in wire and cabling for high-performance home theater and audio/video systems, is debuting an innovative, inventory-efficient concept in installation cabling hardware. The Florida firm’s new Totally Modular Connector Insert System allows custom installers to cut down dramatically on small-parts inventory and jobsite complications, while maintaining the very high quality and reliability of connections and terminations for which Tributaries is known.

Formerly, preparing installers for any combination of RF/cable/satellite, audio, and video connector-termination work in any of just the four commonest housing colors (white, ivory, almond, black), required, at a minimum, no fewer than 64 separate component items at a minimum. But now, Tributaries’ Totally Modular system strips this down to just twelve inventory items, dramatically reducing capital-tie-up, storage, and install complexity.

The Totally Modular concept breaks down wall-plate install elements into three basic units: connectors (gold- or nickel-plated); connector-housings (white, almond, ivory, or black), and standard or Decora wall plates, (standard in the same four colors, Decora in ivory or white only), each in a range of openings and/or single or dual-gang layouts.
Totally Modular elements assemble rapidly and easily, using installers’ existing, standard-format crimping and stripping tools–and each terminal accepts a colored-coded O-ring, available in a broad range of hues, to identify and track functions, feeds, or channels.

The installers simply preps the wire or cable, crimps on the color-coded connector housing, the connector itself, and then snaps together connector-housing, and wall-plate to form a finished termination, frequently in under a minute.

Totally Modular Connectors: RG6, RG59; F-type (gold- or nickel-plated); RCA: (gold- or nickel-plated) accepts color-coded O-rings; BNC: (gold- or nickel-plated) accepts color-coded O-rings
