Motorized Cable Retractor Could be Perfect for Kitchen

During ISE 2011, Komtech introduced a Motorized Cable Retractor system that keeps wires hidden, but easily accessible. Can a Trufig version be far behind?


Komtech Motorized Cable Retractor, ISE 2011

Sometimes the best innovations are the little things – like the new motorized cable retractor from Komtech.

Demonstrated this week at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the system stores a variety of cables when not in use, and allows users to pull them out for temporary connections.

To retract the cables, simply press a button and the unit slowly reels them in. An intelligent device inside the unit analyzes the cable with each use, ensuring nothing is awry.

The company says the system, which is compatible with a variety of Komtech connector panels, maintains the integrity of the cable for at least 1,000 uses.

The Motorized Cable Retractor supports virtually any type of cable including VGA, audio, CATx, USB and DVI.

While targeted for the commercial market, the system would make perfectly good sense for residential applications such as a kitchen. How about a Trufig version?

Pricing was not provided during ISE 2011.

I like to give a short comment regarding the Trufig version…

On the show in amsterdam we demonstrate only one possibility of usage.

KOMTECH works like a manufacture and normally nothing is impossible grin

We can integrate this solution in different ways - and it is now problem to have a trufig version.
