DESCRIPTION
These small IR receivers have been designed for mounting in very small
spaces. They may be mounted under shelf edges, cabinet ledges, in wall
speakers, etc. – anywhere an inconspicuous appearance is desired. The high
sensitivity of these receivers allows placement behind speaker grilles and still
receive IR commands up to 60 feet away*.
FEATURES
• Wire channel for clean installation.
• System testing red-talk-back LED.
• Includes 789-44 connecting block, power supply, and four 283D emitters
for easy system installation.

INSTALLATION
QUICK-START
A typical system will use an IR receiver, several emitters, and a power supply
all connected to a connecting block.
The 3-conductor inter-room cable (24 gauge up to 200’, 22 gauge up to 600’,
20 gauge up to 2000’, 18 gauge up to 5000’), is run to the main room.

Input connections must be made as illustrated. To extend the emitter wires to
a more distant location, you may splice in 2-conductor wire, in the wire
gauges mentioned before, as needed.
While it is possible to make wired connections without the connecting block, it
is not recommended. The connecting block reduces installation time, helps to
eliminate errors, allows easy troubleshooting and permits easy system
upgrades later, if needed.

REMOTE ROOM APPLICATION
One application is to locate the IR receiver in a remote room. This will give the
end-user the ability to control audio/video equipment from a location where
the remote control no longer has the ability of direct line-of-sight.
The IR receiver will need the 3.5mm stereo type mini plug removed to extend
the wire run to the connecting block. A 3-terminal block can be purchased
separately to connect the IR receiver to the connecting block with a 3conductor inter-room cable in between.

LOCAL SYSTEM APPLICATION
Another application is to locate the IR receiver in a central location, such as
the TV, video screen and/or a speaker. The audio/video equipment can then
be hidden inside a cabinet or located away from the front of a room. This will
give the end-user the ability to direct a remote control to one central location
and not have to worry about aiming to the respective device to be controlled.

DESCRIPTION
The DL Series Kit comes with everything needed for a complete IR repeater
system. With a Xantech IR Kit, equipment can now be concealed for clean
room design. In addition, a centralized IR receiver means there is only one IR
target resulting in improved remote control interaction. Featuring color-coded
connectors, a Xantech IR Kit is now an easy to install, and allows a worry-free
installation.

The IR receiver is in close proximity to the audio/video equipment, no wiring
extension should be required so long as the connecting block is within reach
of the 7-foot cable. The 3.5mm stereo type mini plug is connected to the “IR
RCVR” jack on the Xantech Connecting Block.
PLACEMENT
The IR receiver should be located so that it is not directly facing a light source
such as lamps or displays (standard, LCD, and Plasma). When mounted near
a display, it should be flush to the display and away from light reflections that
may occur.

IR Troubleshooting Guide
NOTE: Due to the many variables in a given installation, the
troubleshooting countermeasures you will have to take may vary from job
to job. Each installation is different due to the number of IR receivers in
use, length of wire runs, type of wire, amount of ambient IR noise present,
etc…. Therefore, your countermeasures for a particular job will range
from nothing at all, to any combination of the solutions listed below.

10
Solution
Use a 85 or 95 series Plasma 'Friendly'
Receiver
Putting a 470-ohm resistor in parallel at
the connecting block between signal and
ground will effectively discharge the
capacitance of the wire. This will allow the
signal to travel farther on shielded wire.
Adding a resistor between the input and
ground of the connecting block will drop
the IR level down somewhat. Passive
connecting blocks, such as the 789-44,
may not have enough signal output for
consistent control of the equipment. You
may have to upgrade to an amplified
connecting block to bring the IR level back
to normal. In these cases, the 791-44
would be an ideal connecting block for
single zone systems while the 795-20
would work best for a 2-4 zone system.

Reposition the Emitter to a position that is

non-blink emitters 282 and 284M). If the

using a CB12 connecting block, try a 789-44

With a Multimeter, measure the DC Voltage of the

Put the Negative lead of the meter on the terminal
marked GND and the Positive Lead on the terminal

between 11.5VDC and 13.0VDC. If not, remove the
supply from the Connecting block and measure again

reads between 11.5VDC and 13VDC, power supply is

will indicate the supply is good but in some cases
the supply can still be bad (i.e. reads good when
