3.3 Connection Procedure
Step1. Connect HDMI source device (e.g. Blue-ray DVD) to HDMI input ports of
TPHD405PT-WPI with HDMI cable. Connect a VGA source device (e.g. PC) to
the VGA input port of TPHD405PT-WPI with VGA cable.
Step2. Connect a TPHD402PR to the HDBT port on the rear panel with twisted pair.
Step3. Connect a HDMI display to the HDMI OUT port of TPHD402PR.
Step4. Connect a control terminal to the RS232 port on the front panel of TPHD402PR.
Step5. Both TPHD405PT-WPI and TPHD402PR have IR IN and OUT. When one model
is used for IR signal receiver, the IR signal must be sent out by the other model.
For example: When “IR IN” of TPHD405PT-WPI connects with an IR receiver,
the IR transmitter must connect to IR OUT of TPHD402PR.
The IR signal can be transmitted bi-directionally between TPHD405PT-WPI
and TPHD402PR.
Step6. Connect control device (e.g. PC) to RS232 port of TPHD405PT-WPI or
TPHD402PR (bi-directional RS232 control, either is available).
Step7. Connect DC 24V power adaptor to the power port of TPHD402PR,
TPHD405PT-WPI is able to get power from TPHD402PR with PoC solution.

Scaler Wall Plate HDBaseT Transmitter
Note: TPHD405PT-WPI supports unidirectional PoC, i.e, TPHD405PT-WPI can get
power from far-end PoC devices with PoC function while it can’t energize far-end PoC
devices when the power supply is connected to TPHD405PT-WPI.
3.4 Energizing WP8
TPHD405PT-WPI has a 12V power output port on the rear panel. Connect the 12V
power output port of TPHD405PT-WPI to the power port of WP8 (refer to the following
figure), TPHD405PT-WPI is capable of energizing WP8.

3.5 PoC Solution
TPHD405PT-WPI supports PoC, which allows several terminals share the same power
supply and eliminates the need for extra power supply at the remote nodes.
Connect a DC 24V power adapter to the power port of TPHD402PR, TPHD405PT-WPI
can be energized synchronously with PoC solution, see the picture below:

monitoring, conference room, big screen displaying, television education, command &
control center and smart home etc.
4. Control Modes
4.1 IR control
TPHD405PT-WPI provides an IR IN/ IR OUT socket for connection to IR receiver/ IR
Transmitter to attain bi-directional IR transmission with the far-end receiver.

Control far-end device from local
Control TPHD405PT-WPI or far-end display device from local by the IR remote of
far-end display. IR control signal will be received by IR IN socket, and converted to
corresponding IR output socket of the far-end receiver.

Control local device from remote
Control local source device from remote via corresponding IR remote. The control signal
will be transmitted via the IR OUT socket.
4.2 RS232 Control
As RS232 can be transmitted bi-directionally between TPHD405PT-WPI and
TPHD402PR, so it is able to control a third party RS232 device from local or control
TPHD405PT-WPI from remote. When to control a third party RS232 device, the baud
rate of this device should be 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600 or 115200.
4.2.1 Installation/uninstallation of RS232 Control Software
 Installation: Copy the control software file to the computer connected with
TPHD405PT-WPI.
 Uninstallation: Delete all the control software files in corresponding file path.
4.2.2 Basic Settings
First, connect TPHD405PT-WPI with all input devices and output devices needed, then
to connect it with a computer which is installed with RS232 control software.
Double-click the software icon to run this software.
Here we take the software CommWatch.exe as example. The icon is showed as below:
