SmartPlug Systems Introduces BDCOAX Inlet

Thu Jun 22, 2017

149814409126081.jpgStaying in touch with the outside world has never been more important, even when in a marina or campground. The problem has been how to get all those cables connected to the boat or RV. SmartPlug Systems, manufacturer of safer and smarter shore power connections, offers the BDCOAX, a new inlet that accommodates telephone, television and Internet cables.

Built from the same durable, marine grade 316 stainless steel as SmartPlug's shore power inlet, the BDCOAX duplicates its unique asymmetrical design for a matched look. Its plastic interior is easily modified to accommodate a telephone jack or TV/data coax cable. Its cut-out size and mounting holes match industry standards, so installation is easy using common household tools.

SmartPlug Systems replaces outdated and troublesome twist-type inlets and connectors designed to revolutionize the industry. Double-side locking clips and a sleeved inlet design provide a rock-solid connection. With more metal-to-metal contact, it provides greater protection against the leading causes of power failure and fires, resistance and overheating.
