4.3 TERMINATION SWITCH
The DA1906SX offers the ability to terminate the
input with 75 ohms using a switch located on the
side of the unit, next to the 15-pin HD input
connector. This switch should normally be in the
UP or "ON" position when used with straight
VGA type cables. This will insure that the signal
is properly terminated by the DA1906SX.
4.2 OUTPUTS
The DA1906SX has 3 buffered outputs with 15pin HD female connectors. Loop output is
amplified output to attach a local monitor. The
main output is for the distant presentation
display (large screen monitor or LCD projector)
up to 250 feet away. The main output is pre-
When a VGA "Y" cable (MS8117CA) is used
with the DA1906SX, the Termination Switch
4
DISTRIBUTION AMPLIFIERS
should be in the DOWN or "OFF" position if a
monitor is attached, because the termination is
made by the monitor. If a VGA "Y" cable is used,
but no local monitor is present, the Termination
Switch should be in the UP or "ON" position.
4.4 MOUNTING THE DA1906SX
To mount DA1906SX, the Altinex offers optional
"L" shaped mini-brackets, DA1295SX, which
provide wings on either side of the unit. The
DA1906SX can be installed on a rack plate,
furniture, or wall.

cable?
Yes, the DA1906SX has
three Individually buffered
outputs.
The DA1906SX may be used
with two types of input cables
– VGA Y-type cables and
straight VGA Male to Male
cables. Altinex recommends
straight input VGA cable.
You can not use cat 5 cable
instead of coaxial cable,
because the quality of
received signal will be lost.
Since there is no isolation on
each wire, the signals will
interfere with each other.
It is not recommended, since
one power supply is supplied
with each unit. Please
consider the PS5581SM, a
rack mount power supply.

Please make sure that proper quality of cables
is used. We recommend Altinex made cables for
best results, where video signals are pass
through loop components.
Please make sure that the outputs are
terminated properly and cable runs do not
exceed 15 feet for the loop output port & 100
feet for any of the main output ports.
If the problem shows up after continuous usage
at higher voltage, higher temperature, higher
