Installation
Notes:
1.Test to make sure the entire installation works properly before pulling cables through ceilings/
walls.
2.To achieve maximum distance and performance, 24 AWG solid wire Cat5e/6 cable must be
used. The use of stranded wire Cat5e/6 cable or cable with a gauge size higher than 24 AWG
will result in a shorter extension distance. All Tripp Lite N202-Series Cat6 cables are made with
24 AWG solid-wire cabling.
3.Make sure the power to all connected devices is turned off prior to installation.

1. Connect the transmitter unit’s built-in DVI cable to the computer’s DVI output port.
2. Connect the RJ45 port on the transmitter to the RJ45 port on the receiver using
Cat5e/6 cable.
Note: See the installation diagram for maximum extension distance and video resolutions.
3. Connect the receiver unit’s built-in DVI cable to a DVI monitor input port.
4. Connect the included USB Micro-B cable to the receiver unit and a USB port on
the display or a USB wall outlet.
5. Power on the DVI source and DVI display. The green LEDs on the transmitter’s
and receiver’s RJ45 ports will illuminate to indicate they are receiving power. The
orange LEDs on the receiver’s RJ45 ports will illuminate to indicate it is receiving a
signal from the source.
Note: The orange LED on the transmitter’s RJ45 port does not illuminate.
6. If necessary, adjust the Equalization control on the remote unit to improve the
video image.
Note: An improper Equalization setting can cause the monitor to not display a picture. Try
each Equalization setting until an acceptable image is displayed.

Troubleshooting
If you are unable to get an acceptable image after following the installation
instructions, try the troubleshooting tips below:
1. Is the USB Micro-B cable that shipped with the product connected and
plugged into a working power source? For the product to function properly, the
receiver must be connected to and receiving power from the USB Micro-B cable.
2. Was the power to the DVI source turned off prior to installation? If not,
restart your computer.
3. What resolution are you trying to reach? See the Installation section in this
manual for details on maximum distance and resolution. The shorter the extension
distance, the higher the resolution you will be able to obtain. If you are not able to
get an acceptable image, try lowering your computer’s video resolution or adjusting
the refresh rate.
4. What type of cabling are you using? Inferior cabling can result in poor
performance, so it is important that you use cables that can support the video
resolution you are trying to obtain. To achieve maximum distance and resolution,
24 AWG solid-wire UTP cable (such as Tripp Lite’s N202-Series cables) must be
used.
5. Test your cables to ensure they are working properly. For example, connect
your Cat5e/6 cable between a computer and a network to verify that it establishes
a network connection.
6. Do you have any patch panels or other devices in between the transmitter
and receiver units? Tripp Lite’s DVI over Cat5 Extender Kit is designed to be
connected directly from the transmitter to the receiver via UTP cable. The more
connection points that are between the source and the remote monitor, the more
likely signal degradation will occur, causing poor performance. If you have a patch
panel or other device in between, it should be removed from the installation.
7. Do you have a splitter, switch or other device in between the computer
and transmitter, or in between the receiver and display? Tripp Lite’s DVI
over Cat5 Extender Kit is designed for the transmitter to connect directly with
the source computer and for the receiver to connect directly to the display. If you
have a splitter, switch, or other device in between, it should be removed from the
installation.
8. Check your cabling for any damage that may have occurred during
installation. If a cable connector is loosened from pulling through ceilings/walls or
the cable jacket is damaged, causing the wiring to be exposed, you will not be able
to achieve maximum performance.
9. Are the transmitter and/or receiver units located in an area that exposes
them to elevated temperatures? If the product is overheating, it will not function
properly.
