steps of using powertap grommet

 

MANUALS & USER GUIDES -

 

Assembly Instructions -

  1. Determine the grommet placement on your desk or table top. Use a template as a guide for a hole saw or jig saw. Tape the pattern to the top.
  2. Drill a hole in the center of the template large enough to start cutting. Closely follow the circle perimeter with the jig saw blade.
  3. Feed the power cable and two ethernet pigtails through the hole first and then seat the grommet in place. If the grommet is a little loose for the hole, use some glue or cememt to hold the grommet in place.
  4. Plug the power cord into a wall outlet. Using a standard Ethernet Patch Cable, plug one end into a wall ethernet wall jack or router and the other end into one of the short pigtails of the Power Tap. Repeat for second ethernet port.
    Slide tab back to enable pivoting of the PowerTap. When rotation is complete it will lock in place.

Q:I have a quesiton about your PowerTap? Power and Data Desk Outlet.

Does the AC and USB data configuration get its power from a AC cord that is plugged into a AC wall outlet? Or does the USB ports have to be connected to a computer? We want to insert the PowerTap? Power and Data Desk Outlet unit in laptop tables, not desktop computer station.

Asked by Anonymous user on

A:Answers

  • - Thank you for your question. The USB configuration also has to be connected to a computer source. The unit comes with a long USB extension.

Q:USB on PowerTap

The PowerTap with the 2 usb connections. Is there a seperate cable for the 2 USB that needs to be plugged into the wall or computer?

Asked by Anonymous user on

A:Answers

  • - Thank you for your question. Correct, it still needs to be connected to a computer.

    Fernando M. on

Q:USB for Charging

Can the USB port be used as a charging station? Some USB plug into a "brick" which is plugged into the wall outlet. Does this USB port operate in the same fashion? Or does it pull its power solely from being connected to a computer source?

Asked by Anonymous user on

A:Answers

  • - Thank you for your question. The USB has to be connected to a computer for it to work even as a charger.

    I searched the web for a compact but comprehensive data center that I can install into our conference table. I periodically have meetings with outside people who need access to the internet and I don't like wires running all over and getting into the way. I purchased 2 of these datacenters so I can use one network outlet for our conference phone, 2 for internal network connections, and the other for external internet access. It works well, but I do have to be careful flipping it open as the power line is so bulky and heavy that it's difficult getting it flipped. You need to give it a push from under the table, which needs to be done before the meeting, not during. I also had to strenghten the network connection hookups as they seemed to be very flimsy and afraid the wires would get pulled out of the connectors after a few "flips". All in all, I like the compact design and the idea that it remains flat on the table without having the directional pop-ups that other datacenters have so it's accessible to both sides of the table. Finding a 107mm hole saw was a little challenge but I obtained a 108mm (4 1/4") from a home improvement store and it worked OK.

                We installed two of these in our conference room table after growing weary of having computer and power cords running all over the room. We got one with the power and cat5 outlets and one with power and USB outlets, so now everything we need is on the top of the table. We also got one of the 3.125 inch grommets we installed right in the center of the table we use to bring up any additional cords needed like for the conference phone or to connect a video cable from a computer to the tv. We have been very happy with the result.
