Extron Introduces the New Retractor XL

The Retractor XL is engineered with a robust, dual-pulley mechanism controlled by a constant-tension spring that can withstand frequent use in schools, libraries, conference rooms, and other high-utilization environments.

Anaheim, California (August 14, 2012) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the new Retractor XL Extended Length Cable Retraction System for Cable Cubby® Enclosures. The Retractor XL provides for cable extension up to five feet (1.5 meters) and is available in versions to support most AV and data signal types including VGA, Network, PC Audio, USB, DisplayPort, or HDMI. The Extron Retractor Series, introduced in 2009, is also available for applications where cable extension of 3 feet (90 cm) is appropriate.


"The Retractor XL is perfect for boardrooms or conference rooms with wide tables," says Casey Hall, Extron Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We engineered the Retractor XL to provide an additional two feet (61 cm) of cable extension compared to the Retractor Series, providing added convenience for end users without sacrificing consistent, reliable performance or AV signal integrity."

The Retractor XL is engineered with a robust, dual-pulley mechanism controlled by a constant-tension spring that can withstand frequent use in schools, libraries, conference rooms, and other high-utilization environments. Each Retractor XL module includes a pre-loaded, continuous 12-foot (3.6 m) cable for a single type, ensuring consistent, reliable performance regardless of cable extension length. A four-foot (1.2 m) pigtail is provided on the input side of the Retractor module for ease of installation and connection to under-table electronics, floor boxes, or an Extron AVTrac® floor mounted raceway system.

Extron offers two special-purpose Retractor XL versions. The Retractor XL DC is a convenient means of extending DC power to laptops from the power supply located beneath the table; laptop power supply not included. It is compatible with many Dell, HP, and Compaq PCs. The Retractor XL VGA SM provides remote input connection and selection for Extron VSW 2VGA A and SW VGA Ars switchers.
