QUICK START GUIDE
Cat6 Ethernet Module with
Retractable Cable
HPX-N102-ETH-R
Overview
HydraPort®
The
Retractable Cable Module is designed to be used in conjunction with
the HPX-600/900/1200 or the Hydraport Touch (7”/10”) Connection Port base
assembly, to provide the convenience of various types of cables in a HydraPort System.
The HPX-N102-ETH-R Cat6 Ethernet Module with Retractable Cable (FG552-34)
provides a user-accessible 5 foot (1.5 meter) network Ethernet cable in a retractable
spool that mounts into the HydraPort base assembly (FIG. 1). Cat 6 cable features more
stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise, plus performance of up to 250
MHz (suitable for 10/100/1000Base-T/TX and 10GBase-T).
The HPX-N102-ETH-R RCM cable cartridge mounts from underneath the table to
simplify installation and upgrade of retractable cable modules. This version RCM has a
detachable mounting collar that is installed into the Hydraport base first and then the
cable cartridge is reattached to the mounting collar after table mounting the base.
Securely holding the HPX-N102-ETH-R RCM, extract enough cable to lay the cable
cartridge on the floor while installing the mounting collar into the HPX Base Assembly
(~3ft). When extracting 5 foot (1.5m) cable from the RCM, follow these simple steps:
4.
Pull up to 1.5 meters of cable straight up out of the RCM and then lay it down.
5.
Watch for a red tape on the cable when pulling out. It is a warning to slow pull for
the last 1 foot to avoid damage to the RCM.

FIG. 1 HPX-N102-ETH-R ETHERNET MODULE WITH RETRACTABLE CABLE
Installation
Warning! - Do not attempt to open the retractable cable module enclosure. There are
no serviceable parts inside the module.
- Opening the module enclosure may result in an uncontrolled release of spring
forces which could cause serious injury and/or equipment damage.
- Opening the module enclosure will void the product warranty.
Warning! - installation of the Hydraport in the table should ensure the pull-out length
of the cable can reach all potential users of connectivity, as excessively pulling on a
fully extended cable can irreparably damage the retractor module.
DO NOT twist the detached
cable cartridge. If a twist
exists in the cable when
remounted, the retractor
will not fully retract.

FIG. 4 HPX-N102-ETH-R MOUNTING COLLAR REMOVAL
7.
Lift the mounting collar away from the cable cartridge until the tongue is clear and
then slide to the side to clear the hook.
8.
Feed the mounting collar up through the table cutout to reach the HPX base
assembly (FIG. 5). Align the mounting notches on the mounting collar with the
mounting rails on the HPX Base Assembly.
Note: Module mounting collars are notched in a “tongue and groove" type fashion
to ensure that all modules are oriented correctly in the HPX. Note the orientation of
the notched mounting collar on each module before sliding the module(s) into the
HPX assembly. On RCMs, ensure the retract buttons are all on the same side.
Caution: Only use a hand-held #2 Phillips-head screwdriver for mounting this unit. Overtightening the screws can hinder performance or damage the unit.
For existing HPX installations, the HPX base must be removed from the mounting
surface. See “Existing Installations” on page 2. for HPX Base removal instructions.
1.
Remove the (silver) pivot screw in the center of the End Cap (FIG. 2). There is an
internal tooth washer underneath it. Keep them together for re-installation.
2.
Remove the four (black) sheet metal screws that secure the two-piece End Cap to
the HPX assembly (additional top two screws only on one-piece end cap models).

3.
Gently slide the End Cap out of the HPX base assembly.
Caution: Do not use a high-powered torque screw driver. Over-tightening these screws
can damage the product.
1.
Align the Mounting Notches on the End Cap with the Mounting Rails on the HPX base.
2.
Slide the End Cap into the HPX base until it is fully inserted against the end of the
base assembly. Watch out for the tension spring under the pivot pawl popping the
pivot pawl off the end cap while pressing against the lid pivot point.
3.
Secure the End Cap with the 4 to 6 (black) sheet metal screws (FIG. 2).
4.
Replace the (silver) pivot screw and washer in the center of the End Cap.
Mount the HPX into the Mounting Surface
Existing Installations
Caution: Do not use a high-powered torque screw driver. Over-tightening these screws
can damage the product.
Note: For detailed instructions on installing the HPX base assembly, refer to the HPX600/900/1200 and HydraPort Touch (7”/10”) Installation Guides (available online at
www.amx.com).
1.
Carefully insert the HPX base into the cutout in the mounting surface.
2.
Tighten the four mounting screws (FIG. 7) located inside and at each end of the
HPX base assembly, to rotate the retaining tabs (FIG. 8) into locking position
under the mounting surface.
3.
Minding the twist in the cable, feed the excess cable up through the mounting
collar and insert the cable cartridge hook into the mounting collar cutout.
Note: If a twist in the cable occurs from rotating the cassette before insertion, the
cable will bind and will not fully retract.
4.
Push the cable cartridge trigger up onto the mounting collar tongue until it
latches (opposite of FIG. 4).
5.
Use the Push button to retract the cable into the cartridge.
6.
Attach the display ends of the cables as necessary.
7.
Use cable ties to secure cable bundles as necessary.
For existing HPX installations, the HPX Base Assembly must be removed from the table
surface before the Retractable Cable Modules can be installed.
Note: It may be necessary to reorient existing square drum 1st generation RCMs in the
chassis to ensure they f it against the non lip edge of round drum 2nd generation RCMs.
Otherwise a 1/2 M blank panel (FG558-01) or other non retract
1.
Cut/remove any cable ties that restrict the removal of the HPX Base Assembly.
2.
Loosen the four mounting screws located inside and at each end of the HPX base
assembly (FIG. 7), in order to rotate the retaining tabs from under the mounting
surface.
Note: When the cover of the HPX base is open, only two of these screws are visible.
To access the other two screws, tip the cover over to the opposite open position.
