Wiring and Connections

WyreStorm recommends that all wiring for the installation is run and terminated prior to making connections to the switcher. Read through this section in this entirety before running or terminating the wires to ensure proper operation and to avoid damaging equipment.

Local Area Network (LAN) Wiring

LAN wiring follows the EIA T568B standard.

HDMI and VGA Wiring

WyreStorm recommends using pre-terminated VGA and

HDMI cables due to the complexity of these connector types. Using pre-terminated cables will ensure that these connections are accurate and will not interfere with the performance of the product.

Microphone Wiring

The Mic In uses a 3-pin phoenix connector (supplied).

HDBaseT Wiring

HDBaseT wiring follows the EIA T568B standard.

Audio In Wiring

The switcher contains an Audio In that is used to sync audio with video from the VGA input. This connection uses a 3-pin phoenix connector (supplied).

Audio Out Wiring

The switcher contains an Audio Out that can be used to distribute the audio throughout the room by connecting to an audio pre-amplifier or powered speaker. This connection uses a 3-pin phoenix connector (supplied).

IMPORTANT! HDBaseT Wiring Guidelines

The use of patch panels, wall plates, cable extenders, kinks in cables, and electrical or environmental interference can have an adverse effect on HDBaseT transmission limiting performance. Steps should be taken to minimize these factors (or remove completely) during installation for best results.

While similar in nature, the HDBaseT protocol is different than Ethernet and voltages provided for PoH can be higher than those provided by PoE. For this reason, never connect an HDBaseT link to an Ethernet router or switch to avoid damaging the connected devices.

Note:

The Audio Out is disabled by default and the output level can be adjusted to suit the environment.

Refer to Enabling / Disabling the Audio Output on how to enable and Adjusting the Audio Output Level to set the

output level.
