Legrand announces Evolution ceiling box for A/V and IT equipment



July 3, 2014 – Available in six variation, the 2-ft x 2-ft x 6-in Legrand Evolution ceiling box fits above a false or permanent ceiling to provide storage for electronic audio/video and IT equipment, and to support a projector, if required.

These boxes are designed for conference rooms, classrooms, training facilities, or anywhere a projector and/or A/V equipment is needed and where large racks or furniture storage are not practical, says the company. The six versions include three units with a projector mount, and several options for electrical circuitry. Receptacles within each box are uncontrolled, controlled by dry contact or feature network (IP) or RS232 Series port enabled RackLink technology from Middle Atlantic Products, which monitors and controls the power to AV and IT equipment. Controlled and RackLink versions of the box include a 4-in. 49 CFM/28dBA fan that is thermostatically controlled for cooling.
