FSR, manufacturer of audio and video switching, control products, and connectivity boxes, was a winner at InfoComm 2013 in more ways than one. Company President, Jan Sandri, reported a busy and successful show, and was happy to accept another award for the organization’s increasingly crowded Trophy shelf. The New Jersey–based manufacturer took home the “Best Installation Tools & Tester” award, presented by Commercial Integrator, for its PoE to USB Charger, a device that allows AV professionals to power and charge USB devices such as an iPad® from an PoE-ethernet drop without the need for AC line power.
A panel consisting of the editors of Commercial Integrator, along with integrators in the commercial industry, selected the winners in 37 categories based upon innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, and benefits to the installer.
FSR’s patent pending PoE to USB Chargers fit the bill for their ability to provide a small, convenient power option for Apple® iPad display applications. The Chargers derive ample power from a standard PoE (not PoE+) network connection, without need for AC line power. When used alongside FSR’s iPad enclosure, they offer easy, convenient single-cable Installation.
“We take a lot of pride in our product coverage and our CI BEST Awards is a great example,” says Tom LeBlanc, Commercial Integrator editor-in-chief. “The winning products all offer something special to our integrator readers. They bring unique performance and installation benefits that give them a competitive edge—and will help them to find new sources of revenue. Congratulations to the winners.”
