UL guidelines for rack mounting
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines are
relevant to the safe installation of the TP Receivers in a rack:
1.
Elevated operating ambient temperature — If the unit
is installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
operating ambient temperature of the rack environment
may be greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore,
install the equipment in an environment compatible with
the maximum ambient temperature (Tmax: +122 °F, +50 °
C) specified by Extron.
2.
Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in the rack
so that the equipment gets adequate air flow for safe
operation.
3.
Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack
so that uneven mechanical loading does not create a
hazardous condition.
4.
Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to
the supply circuit and consider the effect that circuit
overloading might have on overcurrent protection and
supply wiring. Give appropriate consideration to the
equipment nameplate ratings when addressing this
concern.
5.
Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable
grounding of rack-mounted equipment. Pay particular
attention to supply connections other than direct
connections to the branch circuit (such as the use of power
strips).

Enhanced Skew-free A/V cable is not recommended for
Ethernet/LAN applications.
This cable is specially designed for compatibility
with Extron’s Twisted Pair products, wired using the
TIA/EIA 568 A standard.
The green, brown, and blue pairs of this cable have
virtually identical lengths, and should be used to
transmit the RGB signals.
The orange pair of this cable has a different length and
should not be used to transmit RGB signals.
Cable testing
To ensure proper cable termination, each transmission cable
system using CAT 5e should be tested (Extron’s Enhanced
Skew-Free UTP cable does not need to be tested). Testing the
cable from the RJ-45 connections at the transmitter and receiver
gives the most accurate indications of cable problems.
There are two varieties of cable runs: simple runs, in which a
single cable is terminated only at the transmitter and receiver,
and complex runs, which can include patch bays and multiple
terminations and lengths of cable. In either case, the entire
cabling system should be tested.
A complete test measures cable length and tests the wire map,
attenuation, NEXT, PSNEXT, ELFEXT, PSELFEXT, return loss,
ACR and PSACR. All of these tests are critical for digital data
transfer. While all are important indicators of the quality of the
cable termination, the most critical testing parameters for video
transfer are wire map (T-568-A termination) and pair length
measurements. The largest concern is equalization of skew
between cable pairs. Cable systems of 300 feet or less should
exhibit no transmission problems if they pass at least CAT 5e or
preferably CAT 6-D5 channel certification testing.
The Microtest OMNI SCANNER 2 performs comprehensive
certification testing to CAT 6 standards. Other manufacturers
also make testing equipment. The tests include advanced
diagnostics for troubleshooting the cause and location
of many cable and termination problems. For simple installation
testing, the Microtest MICRO SCANNER PRO tests wire map
and cable length, including individual cable pair length.
Equalizing pair skew
The manufacturing process for network (CAT 5e) UTP cable leads
to a condition called pair skew. For best results, pair skew needs
to be equalized when using the CAT 5e cable in A/V applications.
The design of the Extron Enhanced Skew-Free A/V UTP cable
reduces pair skew to the point that equalization is not required.
TP Receivers • Installation and Operation
2-17
Installation and Operation, cont’d
Skew exists between pairs when the physical length of one
wire pair is different from another. As the transmission cable
length increases, the amount of skew increases. Skew affects
the displayed image when the differential length between wire
pairs exceeds 2 feet, causing the timing of red, green, and blue
video signals to appear out of alignment (horizontal registration
errors). A white vertical line on a black field can appear as
individual red, green, and blue lines that are close together;
the signal transmitted on the shortest wire pair leads the other
colors and appears to the left on the display.
UTP cable test equipment measures and reports wire pair
length. The report on the various pair lengths can be used in
equalizing pair skew. The nominal velocity of propagation
(NVP — the speed at which the signal travels on the
transmission line, measured as a percentage of the speed of
light) of TP cable is very close to that of conventional coaxial
cable. The similarity in NVP means that an additional length
of coax equal to the length of pair skew, placed on the receiver
output, equalizes the effects of pair skew (figure 2-11).
If UTP cable test measurement cannot be done, pair skew can
still be equalized by viewing a test pattern with a critical eye.
Examine the test pattern for loss of horizontal registration and,
through a process of trial and error, equalize any pair skew with
coax extensions on the red, green, and/or blue outputs.

The TP R BNC AV is a redesigned receiver. The audio portion
of the composite video TP link can be configured to work with
similarly redesigned TP T 15HD AV transmitters or with older,
unmodified transmitters. See Audio jumpers in chapter 2,
Installation and Operation.
The TP T A 45 incorporates the redesigned audio circuits, but
cannot be jumpered for backwards compatibility.
Most redesigned (modified) receivers and transmitters have an
identifying label. The TP T A 45 incorporates the redesigned
audio circuits, but does not have an identifying label.
