Channel Injector

The 5115 series is comprised of a wall plate and a channel injector.
The channel injector is weather resistant and designed to mount
indoors or outdoors close to the incoming CATV or antenna feed.
The system uses the existing coax cable distribution in the house
and only requires a single run of Cat 5.
The 5115 was designed to work with Cat 5 wiring. Although the system will function with quad wire, Cat 5 delivers the highest quality
picture. The Cat 5 allows the use of an automatic line length sensor
and picture compensator. Quad wire does not take advantage of
this enhancement.
Model Differences:
The model 5115HHR is a high headroom design for CATV and off
air antenna feeds only.
The model 5115BID is a bi-directional design for use with CATV
cable boxes that are interactive or require bi-directional
communications with the cable company.
The model 5115PAL is designed to modulate PAL frequencies and
use CATV or off air antenna feeds.
Installation:
First, locate the incoming CATV or antenna feed and install the
channel injector at that location.
Second, install the wall plate at the desired location and run Cat 5
wire from the wall plate to the channel location. Then connect a
video source.
Locate the incoming CATV or antenna feed and existing splitter.
(Usually found on the side of the house, in the attic or near the electrical and phone service box)
Remove the lock screw located on the bottom of the channel
injector and slide the cover off. Use the mounting holes as shown to
affix the channel injector to the wall next to the splitter.

The 5115 series is a audio/video distribution system that creates a
new channel to add to existing television channels. The new channel
carries audio/video from any video source to all the TVs in the home
The 5115 was designed to install effortlessly into existing coax home
wiring or into new construction.

Connecting A Video Source
The wall plate mounts using a low voltage ring into a wall cut out.
Run a line of Cat 5 wire from the wall plate to the channel injector
and connect wires as shown.

Applying Power and Programming
Step Three
The 5115 series has three different methods for applying power
to the system.
Method Two: Use the power injector to apply power along the Cat
5 or quad wire run. Cut the connecting wire along the run and insert
the power injector. Connect the wires using the color coding. Then
plug the power supply into the power injector.
Use only one method for applying power.

Method One: Apply power directly to the channel injector with the
power supply.

Method One
How to Program
Determine which unused channel you want to view your video
source on and program the injector for that channel. There must be
one unused channel both before and after the selected channel to
avoid interference. The new channel will be combined with the existing channels and appear on all televisions.

To program: For example channel 60
1: Press the button 6 times.
2: Wait for the LED to relight.
3: Press the button 10 more times (pressing 10 times enters “0”).
The injector will now combine the wall plate feed on channel 60 with all other
existing channels from the incoming CATV or antenna.
To program a three digit channel: For example channel 120
1: Press the button 1 time.
2: Wait for the LED to relight.
3: Press the button 2 more times.
4: Wait for the LED to relight.
5: Press the button 10 more times.
Finding Unused Channels
CATV: Determine the highest channel number delivering a picture,
excluding 95-99. Tune the TV up one channel at a time from the last
channel with a picture until finding one channel with no trace of a
picture or interference, just snow.
Antenna: Tune the TV one channel at a time from channel 14-64.
Locate one channel that has no trace of a picture or interference,
just snow.

Programming a New Channel
Valid channels are 14 thru 64 for UHF and 65 thru 125 for CATV
Channels 95-99 are not available. Channels 21 thru 62 are for Pal.
Channel Spacing:
Skip at least one number between the new channel and the closest
existing UHF/CATV channel.
(example 14 and 16: OK
14 and 15: Unacceptable)
Error Indication:
If an error occurs or an incorrect channel is entered, the LED will
flash quickly for one second and return to previous settings.
Cable HRC and IRC considerations:
Most cable services use IRC frequency assignments. This is the
default for the 5115. However, if the cable services uses HRC or
the TV appears to search for the “created channel”, program the
channel injector for HRC.
For HRC enter 98. Reset to IRC by entering 99.
