External Antenna for CSM-QMT50-DCEX
Installation Guide
The Crestron® CSA-ANT-EXTRNL-QMT50 is an optional accessory for the
CSM-QMT50-DCEX QMT™ shade motor with infiNET EX® wireless communication. The
external antenna is recommended for applications where the shade is recess mounted in a
pocket, or anywhere the integrity of the wireless signal may be compromised by some
obstruction or excess distance.
The CSA-ANT-EXTRNL-QMT50 comes in white and can be painted to blend with the
surrounding decor for an inconspicuous installation. It is designed for mounting to a flat
surface outside of the pocket in which the shade is installed, or near the opening at the
bottom of the pocket. It includes an integral 8 inch (204 mm) wire lead with right-angle
MMCX coaxial connector for connection to the shade motor.
