DESCRIPTION
FEATURES
The Extron Extender Series is a family of one input, one buffered
output VGA-QXGA line drivers with audio. There are three models
designed for mounting within MK wall box or Ackermann floorbox
applications.
The Extender AKM UK AAP accommodates optional Extron
Architectural Adaptor Plates (AAPs), while the Extron AKM MAAP
accepts optional Extron Mini Architectural Adapter Plates (MAAPs).
There are dozens of Extron AAPs and MAAPs available, in a variety of
A/V connector and control combinations.
Each line driver sends a high-resolution computer-video signal up to
75 meters using high quality coax cable, such as Extron BNC-5
Mini HR Cable. Output is on five female BNCs on a 8 cm pigtail
for simple and versatile connections. An external power supply is
included.
The Extender Series products provide video amplification and peaking
to compensate for the voltage losses and high frequency attenuation
that normally occur in long cable runs. A three position dip switch
lets the installer select the appropriate signal boost for various cable
lengths, providing a more detailed image with greater contrast.
Extenders also restore the low level sync voltages found on many
laptops (as low as two volts) to normal TTL levels. This sync
restoration prepares the signals for long cable runs and offers
enhanced compatibility with a wide range of computers, display
devices, and cable types.
Extender Series products are compact, so that when used with an MK
or Ackermann box, there is ample space to make connections inside
the box.

Extender AKM UK AAP
■ Bandwidth – 300 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth.
■ Compatibility – Compatible with VGA-QXGA graphic cards,
monitors, and projectors, as well as Macintosh® computers with
15-pin HD outputs.
■ Video peaking/gain – A three-position switch provides various
levels of signal boost and high frequency equalization to maintain
video signal integrity over long cable runs.
■ Active PC audio buffering – Converts unbalanced PC audio to
balanced, line level audio, eliminating noise usually associated
with unbalanced audio when distributed over long cable runs.
■ Power and signal present indicator – A dual color LED illuminates
yellow to indicate power, and green to indicate that a signal is
present at the input.
■ External international power supply included – The
autoswitchable external power supply provides worldwide power
compatibility (part # 70-055-01).
Extender MK
For convenient and easy installation, the Extender MK
fits flush within an electrical knock-out switch box (also
known as a KO or MK box), which is frequently used in
the UK, Singapore, and Australia. One version includes
two faceplates, one black and one white. Another version
is available in RAL9010 white.
Extender AKM UK AAP
The Extender AKM UK AAP includes openings for up to
three optional single space AAPs, and is designed for
installation in Ackermann models CRX4090 and CRX4120
floor boxes. (Ackermann floor box not included.)
Available in gray.
Extender AKM MAAP
The Extender AKM MAAP includes openings for up to
three optional single space MAAPs and is designed for
installation in Ackermann floor boxes that accept GB2
or GB3 inserts. (Ackermann floor box not included.)
Available in black.
