Robotic Fiber Panel Systems Capture Platinum, Safe-IT™ Antibacterial Cables Win Gold
Chicago, IL (August 25, 2021) — Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, announced today two of its products have been recognized among the best by the 2021 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards. Tripp Lite’s Robotic Fiber Panel Systems with Mini Chassis received the Platinum honoree award and its Safe-IT Antibacterial Cables achieved the Gold honoree award.
Tripp Lite’s Robotic Fiber Panel Systems with Mini Chassis have 204 LC fiber ports and use robotic latching and remote management to reconfigure layer 1 fiber connections between switches and servers in just 15 seconds. Two robotic arms move cables into place with precision, eliminating human error and the damage that can occur over time with manual connections.
Safe-IT Antibacterial Ethernet, USB and Video Cables have jackets, connectors and plugs with antibacterial protection that is proven 99.9% effective in inhibiting the growth of E. coli and staph bacteria. This protection makes the cables ideal solutions for medical facilities, schools, businesses and restaurants/kitchens.
"We are proud to be recognized by Cabling Installation & Maintenance with both of the awards," said Glen Haeflinger, Tripp Lite’s President. "These innovative solutions help IT professionals work more efficiently and safely. The Mini Robotic Fiber Panel Systems enable remote scheduling of automated tasks and changing fiber connections as needed, reducing on-site visits and allowing IT managers to work from anywhere. Our SafeIT Antibacterial Cables are ideal for shared workspaces and any application that requires an extra safeguard against bacteria."
"On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Tripp Lite on their Platinum and Gold level honoree statuses," said Cabling Installation & Maintenance Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin. "This competitive program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products, projects, technologies, and programs impacting the industry."
