I'm installing a flat screen tv with a wall mount and wish to find a
plug that combines the power and the coax so that I can have just one
box that contains both. Do you know if this is commercially available>
I think you're just using the wrong terminology. Here is an outlet box, that
is designed for both line and low voltage. There are others on the market as
I'm betting this isn't what the OP is looking for. I'm betting he's looking
for something like the kind of wall plate that has a coax and phone
connection on the same plate, only with a 110 outlet and the coax.
When you drill into the 'instruction manual" pdf you see that this still
requires a standard device box mounted on the side for the 110 power. This
is really only a box to allow you to consolidate the 110 and coax or other
low-voltage into one recessed opening in the wall. the 110 'box and the
coax are still kept separate.
here is the link to the instructions:
Right: separation of LV and line voltage in the box is all the
NEC (or CEC) requires.
The newer design of LV "enclosure" is little more than a ring to
hold the coverplate, rather than a full box. [Combined 120V/LV being
of course a full box on one side, and the ring on the other].
I've just started using those, and I'm completely sold.
You learn to appreciate them when you're trying to run COAX with
connectors on them into the back of the units, and you don't have
to fight with fishing them thru box holes.
The "old work" ones (they have screw-tightened wings on the back
to clamp them into a simple hole in the drywall) are particularly
