Cable Solutions IR-SYS IR Repeater System

Interference-Rejecting, Plasma, LCD and CFL Friendly

Cable Solutions IR-SYS IR Repeater System

Cable Solutions IR-SYS IR Repeater System

Cable Solutions IR-SYS IR Repeater System comes with everything you need to overcome line-of-sight IR control limitations, including a miniature surface-mount IR receiver, powered terminal connecting block, surface-mount IR emitter, and a power supply.

The included receiver has a wideband design that can receive signals from virtually any IR remote control.  The design is virtually "plasma-proof" and CFL-friendly, making it perfect for use with both LCD and plasma displays.

Automatic Gain Control reduces interference to ensure reliable performance in a wide range of installation environments while extending on-axis IR range to as far as 80 feet.

At just 1.76" x 0.61" x 0.50", the receiver is small enough to fit just about anywhere.  With the included pressure-sensitive adhesive, mechanical installation is as simple as peel-and-stick.  The receiver has a 3 meter (9.8 foot) cable, terminated with a 3.5mm TRS-mini (stereo-type) plug, making it simple to connect to the included IR-TERM connecting block.

The included IR-TERM connecting block can accept IR receiver inputs via 3.5mm jack, terminal strip, or coax, so for short runs, the receiver just plugs right in.  The terminal strip and coax options are perfect for longer runs.  The IR-TERM powered terminal connecting block has six 3.5mm output jacks, making it easy to send IR signals to six or more emitters.  LED status lights are included for IR signal confirmation and power.

The system comes with (1) IR-EMTR-F-1-35 single blink emitter, and can be expanded by adding additional optional single, dual or triple emitters. (add to your cart below)
