Voyager 100
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Voyager 100 UTP Extender. This product will allow you to place your
Monitor and PS/2 Keyboard and PS/2 Mouse up to 100 meters away from your computer.
Product Features

Allows a user to control a PC from up to 100 meters (330 feet) away, using a single CAT5, 5e
or CAT 6 cable.
No additional software is required for operation.
Adjustable Video Equalisation - Compensates for loss of image quality due to cable length in
several steps with or without extra gain.
Fully buffered signals to ensure consistent remote operation of your PC
Dual Access allows for an additional keyboard, monitor and PS/2 mouse to be connected
through the local unit.
Operation
The Voyager is simple to install, with no software is required. Just connect the units up as described in
quick setup system guide and you're ready to work. Switch the computer off before wiring up the units.
Hardware Installation
Before connecting your computer to the Voyager Local unit, please ensure that it is powered off.
Connect your console devices to the Voyager remote unit. Note: the Voyager Remote requires power.
If your computer does not have a PS/2 mouse or keyboard port, you can use a PS/2 to USB converter
(2141-01U). This will allow you to connect the Voyager to your computer. The keyboard and mouse
that you connect to the Voyager unit must be PS/2.
With the constant changes in computers keyboards and mice on the market, it is impossible to
guarantee universal compatibility for the Voyager’s keyboard/mouse emulation. The Voyager
emulation is compatible with almost all standard PC (Intel/AMD based) BIOS systems.
The local unit is normally powered from the computer through the keyboard connector. Some
computers do not supply enough power through the keyboard connector; this necessitates the use of
a 5VDC mains adapter on the local unit. The Voyager 100 Local Unit is equipped with a DC jack for
the use of an optional power supply. This jack is normally not used, since most computers supply
enough power through the keyboard connector.
If you daisy chain the local with other equipment, please use a separate power supply (9014-00A) for
the local unit.

Cable Requirements
Cables to connect the Voyager Local unit to your PC’s system unit are supplied in the package. Your
keyboard, monitor and mouse will plug straight in to the Voyager Local and Voyager Remote Units.
The Voyager 100 is a dual access unit, in that it allows for an access point next to your computer as
well as access point up to 100m away.
The UTP / STP interconnect cable to connect the Voyager Local Unit to the Voyager Remote Unit is
not supplied with the Voyager units. If you do not have suitable CAT 5, 5E or 6 UTP or STP cable
fitted at you site, please consult your dealer.
The Local and Remote Units are connected by industry standard structured cabling (Category 5, 5E or
6 UTP/STP, 4-pair) terminated with RJ45 connectors.
The cable used should be solid trunk cable. Stranded patch cable will give poor results over longer
distances.
The connector wiring must meet the EIA/TIA 568 standard.
CAT5 Wiring Scheme
The Local-Remote interconnection cable is terminated in RJ45 connectors and should be wired
according to the EIA/TIA 568 (Scheme B preferred) industry standard. The Voyager will function with
other wiring schemes, but the video quality may be impaired.
Orientation: Looking into the RJ45 socket pin 1 is on the left and pin 8 on the right.

The Voyager has been tested with all major makes of CAT 5 cable including BICC-VERO, Mohawk,
and Brand-Rex. The Voyager has also been tested with most major makes of CAT 5E and CAT6 with
good results.
Note: That failure to wire the twisted pairs correctly will impair the video quality
dramatically and / or prevent correct operation.
This Voyager 100 extender is designed for use up to a maximum cable length of 100m/330ft At this
length the video quality should still be acceptable even at a screen resolution of 1280 x 1024 (85 Hz).
Although a single continuous length of interconnect cable is preferable, operation is possible through
multiple Patch Panels. However, the more patch panels the cable is routed through, the greater the
chance of video signal degradation.

Switch off your computer.
Connect the Voyager Local Unit to the PC KVM Cable
Plug in your Keyboard, Monitor and Mouse into the corresponding Keyboard, Monitor and
Mouse ports on the Voyager Local Unit. (You can use the Voyager without having a Local
Keyboard, Monitor and Mouse connected).
Connect your UTP cable to the Voyager Local Unit.
Connect the PC KVM cable to your computer’s Keyboard Monitor and Mouse ports.
Connect the other end of your UTP cable to the Voyager Remote Unit.
Connect the power supply unit to the Voyager Remote unit.
Plug in your Keyboard, Monitor and Mouse into the corresponding Keyboard, Monitor and
Mouse ports on the Voyager Remote Unit.
Power on your computer.
Check that the keyboard and mouse operate correctly.
Adjust the Video Equalisation if required on the Voyager Remote Unit which contains video
equalisation circuitry that will compensate for the loss in image quality experienced when
sending video over long cables.
To set the correct level of equalisation there is an adjustment wheel on the rear side of the Voyager
Remote Unit. Select and adjust the range appropriate to the cable length (these only need to be set
once.)

The remote unit (when installed in its final location) may be left permanently powered up.
Please note that for all practical purposes cable equalisation cannot be exact - the remote image will
never be as sharp as the original. The Voyager’s equalisation system is designed so that it produces
very good results on short to medium length cables and an acceptable quality over longer cables.
Note: If you are at the top end of a cable length range, say 45m, you may achieve a
better quality video compensation by selecting the next cable length range, e.g. setting
the switch to position 2 instead of position 1.
