2. Installation Procedures
Step 1.
Cut an opening into the table’s surface. Refer to diagram on ALTINEX web site www.altinex.com for table cutout requirements.
Note: The tabletop must be 2.5 inches or less in thickness. Always confirm dimensions before cutting to insure specifications have not changed.
Step 2.
Insert the unit into the opening.
Step 3.
Place the 2 support brackets under the table and place them between the support mount
grooves on each side of the unit. Attach the brackets to the groove at the desired height
and secure them to the bottom of the table using the screws provided. See Diagram 4.
Step 4.
Attach the power cord to the table using the cable clamps provided. Keep a service loop
under the table to allow the unit to “pop up”. Exercise the unit several times while
adjusting the cable placement. Tighten the clamps when the unit “pops up” smoothly.
Step 5.
Connect the remaining cables under the table to their mating destinations using a service
loop as described above for the power cable.
Note: There are 2 RCA audio connectors on the front panel of the TNP502. The black
connector is known as audio left and the red is for audio right.

5. About Your TNP500/502
The TNP500 is designed for installation into a table in a presentation or boardroom. The Tilt `N Plug Configurable Tabletop Interconnect Box provides access to
multimedia input connections when needed, and hides them when not needed. This unit can be configured with a wide variety of data or A/V connectors.
Using a tilting angular construction with pneumatic lift assist and mechanical latch, the TNP500 can be "tilted up" into a raised position for access to input plates,
or lowered flush into the table when not in use. Only light pressure is required to unlatch the top to open it, and slightly more pressure to push the lid down and
close the unit.
The TNP500 provides slots for 6 single-slot sectional plates on the exposed faceplate. Signals are passed through the unit to the underside of the table via cables
with mating connectors on the opposite end. For example, an RJ-45 F connector on the sectional plate would be terminated in an RJ-45 M connector at the
opposite end of a 6 ft (2 m) cable. Many sectional plate configurations are available and ordered separately. See our website for complete details.
The TNP502 is a "package" that covers the basic needs of many Tilt ‘N Plug users. This unit ships as a completely assembled product made up of one TNP500 and
one SP3500SC Sectional Plate. The input labels are already engraved and ready to go.
The SP3500SC includes the following connectors: 2 standard U.S. power receptacles, computer video (15-pin HD), COM Port/RS-232 (9-pin D), composite video
(RCA), S Video (4-pin mini DIN), audio (2-RCAs), computer audio (3.5 mm), modem (RJ-11), and network (RJ-45) input connectors. All signal connectors have 6
ft (2 m) cables attached that feed through to the bottom of the unit. The connectors and their labels may be customized for a fee.

until needed again.
•
