Connecting and Routing Cables and Continuing Assembly of the First Row Table

When routing cables, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Keep power, signal, Ethernet, and camera cables separate. Use Figure 10-3 as a reference to place the different cable types between the table and the main structure in the cable runner.

Note You do not need to separate cables that are less than 3 feet (1 meter) long.


  • Use the Velcro cables and the clips that are provided in the table legs to route the cables in the first and second row tables.
  • If you have extra cables after completing routing, use the method that works best for your installation to dress the excess cable. Some examples are:

Use the Velcro tie-wraps to loop the excess cable together.

Use the holes in the table legs as shown in Figure 10-4 to place the excess cable.


Step 1 Start to route the power, microphone, Touch device, Ethernet, and presentation cables through the cable runner base.

Connecting and Routing Cables in the Main Display Assembly

This section contains guidelines to connect and route the cables in the main display assembly and includes the following sections:

General Cable Routing Guidelines

When routing cables, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Keep power, signal, Ethernet, and camera cables separate.

Note You do not need to separate cables that are less than 3 feet (1 meter) long.


  • Use the Velcro cables and the clips that are provided in the table legs to route the cables in the first and second row tables.
  • If you have extra cables after completing routing, use the method that works best for your installation to dress the excess cable. Some examples are:

Use the Velcro tie-wraps to loop the excess cable together.

Use the holes in the table legs as shown in Figure 10-4 to place the excess cable.

Connecting and Routing the Cables

To connect and route cables:


Step 1 Route the power and, if necessary, Ethernet cables through the rear of the reflector to the power and Ethernet receptacles in the wall.


Caution Be sure to observe all local safety codes when cabling the system.

Use the following steps as guidelines:

  • Free-standing systems only:

There is an access slot (mouse hole) in the bottom center of the center reflector panel; if possible, route the cables through this slot. Be sure to keep the power and Ethernet cables separated.

  • Wall-mounted systems only:

Remove the access panels as shown in Figure 3-5 and Figure 3-6 and route the cables to the wall outlets through these panels.

If the outlets are located at the base of the wall, you can raise the entire wall so that it clears the wall.

Step 2 Connect the cables for the entire system. See Figure 10-13 and Figure 10-14 for diagrams on how to route cables in the main display frame. See Figure 10-16 for a complete cabling diagram and additional information about connecting and routing cables.


NoteWhen routing cables in the front of the main display frame, bundle cables together using velcro ties, and use the shelf on the interior of the facade brackets to support the cable bundles.

Click here for a printable version that is two pages and fits on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper.



NoteWhen connecting the cable that connects the TS1 codec to the audio/video expansion unit (labeled D1 on the wiring diagram), be sure to connect to the port labeled “AUX” on the audio/video expansion unit. When connecting the cable that connects the TS1 codec to the audio/video expansion unit (labeled D1 on the wiring diagram), be sure to connect to the port labeled “AUX” on the audio/video expansion unit.


Using the Correct DVI Port When Connecting the Display Cables

When you connect the DVI cables to the display, be sure to plug the cable into the white port labeled “DVI”. This is the connection on the left in Figure 10-15. Do not plug the DVI cable into the orange port labeled “AUX” or the display goes into a “deep sleep” mode and will not become active.

Figure 10-15 DVI and Aux Ports on the Display

 

Connecting the Audio Cable for Shared Presentations

The audio connection for the presentation cable on the codec is different based on the cable you use for presentations. If you use a VGA-to-VGA cable, use the audio connection on the codec labeled with an icon of a computer. If you use a HD video (uses HDMI connector)-to-HD video (uses HDMI connector), HD video (uses HDMI connector)-to-DisplayPort, or HD video (uses HDMI connector)-to-Mini DisplayPort cable, use the audio connection labeled “Aux” on the codec. Figure 10-16 shows both connections.

Determining the Correct Cables to Use

Each cable in the cabling diagram has an alphanumeric identifier. Table 10-3 through Table 10-8 show the mapping between the part numbering for the cables in the cable kit and the alphanumeric identifiers in the cabling diagram.
