8-OUT, 1TP Output Card for V-Matrix
See www.altinex.com for up-to-date information.
The VM2382CF is an 8 Twisted Pair Output card
designed for use with all ALTINEX standards for
Twisted Pair signal transmission including TP
receivers like the DA1931CT and MT103-123. The
Twisted Pair signals from the VM2382CF may be
easily distributed to the single channel inputs of a
receiver using ALTINEX cables such as the
MS8704TP.The VM2382CF Output card works with
its counterpart, the VM2831CF Input Card. See the
VM2381CF for more information.
FEATURES/
DESCRIPTION
INPUTS
Each VM2382CF can transmit 2 4TP ALTINEX
Standard signals for a maximum of 32 4TP outputs
per enclosure. The input and output cards both
provide excellent bandwidth allowing them to pass
high-resolution computer video + audio signals
without signal degradation.

Weight
The latest generation of Twisted Pair devices uses
an innovative, patented technology* developed by
ALTINEX. The new signal processing technology
allows transmitting and receiving fully equalized
computer video signals, stereo, and audio signals
over long distances. The maximum distance at full
UXGA resolution is 400 ft (122 m) between devices
and may reach up to 750 ft (230 m) at VGA
resolution.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Step 1. Turn off power to the V-Matrix enclosure.
8
The VM2382CF unit supplied was carefully tested
and no problems were found. However, we would
like to offer the following suggestions:
Step 2. Remove a slot cover (VM2005BP) from
one of the unused slots of the enclosure
in order to install the VM2382CF.
8.1 NO DISPLAY
Step 3. Slide the VM2382CF into the slot in the
enclosure in order to connect it to the bus.
Cause 1:
The cable connections are wrong.
Solution:
Step 5. Starting from the left, identify the slot
number of the VM2382CF in the
enclosure, and note that it will be used to
determine the output numbers for the
card.
Make sure the cables are properly
connected and that the inputs on the
VM2381CF are receiving the input
signals from the TP source. Next,
make sure the selected outputs on
the VM2382CF are connected to the
TP receiver and that the continuity
and wiring are good. If there is still
no display, see Cause 2.
Cause 2:
The path is not properly selected.
Step 6. Restore power to the V-Matrix enclosure.
Solution:
Verify the signal is being properly
routed through the V-Matrix system.
Step 4. Make sure that the card fits into place and
then secure the card by tightening the
retainer screws located on the top and
bottom of the card.
Step 7. Connect the Twisted Pair outputs of the
VM2382CF to the inputs of the TP
receiver using an adapter cable like the
MS8704TP.
NOTE: The ALTINEX Standard for
TP signals requires 4 Twisted Pairs.
All 4 pairs must be switched through
the V-Matrix system.
Step 8. The VM2382CF is ready for operation.
Example: The TP transmitter pairs
are being applied to inputs 1-4. If the
TP receiver is connected to the first
four outputs of the card in slot 1,
make the following connections:
Step 9. Each output card in the enclosure handles
8 output signals. In order to determine the
starting output number of the VM2382CF
just installed, multiply the slot number by
8 and subtract 7.
Input 1 to Output 1
Input 2 to Output 2
Input 3 to Output 3
Input 4 to Output 4
Example: The card is in slot 4.
(4 x 8) – 7 = 25
Therefore, the new card outputs are
numbered 25 through 32.
OPERATION
If the TP receiver is connected to
first four inputs of the card in slot 2:
7
Input 1 to Output 9
Input 2 to Output 10
Input 3 to Output 11
Input 4 to Output 12
7.1 GENERAL OPERATION
The VM2382CF does not require any adjustments
for proper operation. Once installed, the
VM2382CF will operate trouble-free with no user
intervention.

See RS-232 accessible commands
for the VM2210BE V-Matrix Basic
Enclosure User's Guide. If there is
still no display, see Cause 3.

V-MATRIX
Cause 3:
The card has a problem.
ALTINEX POLICIES
Solution 1: Look at the card and verify that there
is no damage. If there is no damage,
see Solution 2.
9.1 LIMITED WARRANTY/RETURN POLICIES
Please see the ALTINEX website at
www.altinex.com for details on warranty and
return policies.
Solution 2: Make sure the display is powered
and turned on. If there is still no
display, see Cause 4.
Cause 4:
There is an unknown problem.
Solution:
Bypass the V-Matrix and connect
the TP transmitter directly to the TP
receiver, and the receiver to the
display. If possible, use the same
cables as are being used with the
V-Matrix system.
If the display
works properly, there may be a
problem with the V-Matrix or in the
setup.

manufacturer's
specifications if necessary. If the
devices
are
compatible,
see
Cause 2.
