Las Vegas, NV (September 24, 2007) - Altronix, the leading manufacturer of low voltage power supplies and accessories for the electronic security industry, is introducing their next generation of video/data/power products which bring the benefits of centralized transmission to larger and more complex video surveillance installations. The new enhanced Hubway Series transmits UTP video and RS-422/S485 data on a single CAT-5E or CAT-6 cable for distances of up to 3000 feet.

"The new Hubway Series is engineered for maximum flexibility and greater economy of scale for new and retrofit video surveillance installations," said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation. "These products have been developed to support our new direction of providing more than just power."

The new Hubway Series UTP receiver hubs are available with 8 or 16 video channels in a space saving 1U rack mount chassis that fits standard 19" EIA racks or may be wall or shelf mounted. They can be ordered with or without integral distributed camera power outputs with several choices of power ratings that are individually selectable for 24VAC or 28VAC. The units are compatible with AC and/or DC cameras with Altronix's 24VAC HubwayA or 12VDC HubwayD Video Balun Combiners. In addition, the units feature built-in PTCs and surge suppression, as well as adjustments for picture quality and gain control. An optional remote module allows video feeds from four cameras to be transmitted on a single structured cable while supplying the required camera power and totally eliminating the possibility of voltage drop.

Altronix has also redesigned its Hubway UTP passive receiver hubs in the same space saving chassis with similar features and options with or without integral power for video transmission ranging up to 750 feet. All new Hubway models operate at 115 or 230VAC, 50/60Hz and include an IEC320 detachable, grounded line cord.
