Installation Instructions
1 Make sure the DisplayPort source is powered off.
2 Connect the source to the input port on the splitter using a
P580-Series DisplayPort cable (or a P583-Series Mini DisplayPort
to DisplayPort Cable). Note: It’s recommended that the distance
between the source and splitter be no greater than 6 ft. (1.8m).
Distances up to 16 ft. (5m) may be achievable, but are not
guaranteed.
3 Connect the included external power supply to the splitter, and plug
it into a Tripp Lite Surge Suppressor, Power Distribution Unit (PDU),
or Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). The Green Power LED on the
splitter will illuminate to indicate the unit is receiving power.
4 Connect a monitor to the Output 1 port on the splitter using a
DisplayPort cable. Note: See the Optional Accessories listing in this
manual (beneath the Package Contents section) for recommended
cables. When displaying video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 @
60Hz, the distance between the splitter and the monitor must not
exceed 25 ft. (7.6m). When displaying video resolutions from 1920
x 1080 @ 60Hz to 4K UHD, 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz, the distance
between the source and the splitter must not exceed 6 ft. (1.8m).
5 Repeat step 4 to connect a monitor to the Output 2 port on the splitter.
6 Turn on the power to the source and connected monitors. The Orange
port LEDs will illuminate to indicate that a signal is being received and
video will appear on the connected monitors.
7 Use your video cards display settings screen to make adjustments
to the way video is displayed on the connected monitors. Note: The
DisplayPort splitter is backward compatible with most DisplayPort
1.1a equipment running current graphics drivers, with the feature
set being limited to that of your equipment (e.g. you may be limited
to displaying in Clone / Mirror mode only). Compatibility with older
graphics cards is not guaranteed.

Troubleshooting
If you are unable to get an acceptable image after following the
installation instructions, try the troubleshooting tips below.
1 Is your equipment running the latest graphics driver? If not, download
the latest graphics drivers for your equipment. Backward compatible
with most DisplayPort 1.1a equipment running current graphics
drivers, with the feature set being limited to that of your equipment
(e.g. you may be limited to displaying in Clone / Mirror mode only).
Compatibility with older graphics cards is not guaranteed.
2 Is the external power supply that came with the product connected
and plugged into a working power source? For the product to function
properly, it must be connected to and receiving power from the
external power supply.
3 Was the power to the DisplayPort source turned off prior to
installation? If not, restart your computer.
4 What resolution are you trying to reach? Tripp Lite DisplayPort Splitters
are tested to support video resolutions up to 4K UHD, 3840 x 2160 @
60Hz. If you are not able to get an acceptable image, try lowering your
computer’s video resolution or adjusting the refresh rate.
5 What length cables are you using? The maximum cable lengths that
can be used between the source and the splitter, and between the
splitter and the monitors, is called out in the Installation section of
this manual.
6 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. It is recommended that
you use the Tripp Lite cables shown in the Optional Accessories listing
in this manual, as they have been tested to work with the B156Series Splitters.
7 Test your cables to ensure they are working properly. For example,
connect your DisplayPort cables between a source and monitor that
you know works to see if the cable is functioning.
