5. Wiring Recommendations

5.1. HDBaseT Link

Cable Type - Shielded or Unshielded Cat5e/6

• Distance Limitations

Cat5e/Cat6: Up to 200ft ([email protected] resolution is limited to 115 ft)

Cat6a: Up to 230ft ([email protected] resolution is limited to 130 ft)

• Use at least Category 5e high-quality twisted pair solid conductor cable rated to 350 Mhz bandwidth.

The higher the cable standard, the better it will perform.

• For the best results, install a shielded cable. This will prevent rare signal dropout and artifacts that may occur and are caused by electromagnetic and radio interference (EMI/RFI) from ceiling fans, appliances and electric motors.

• Use no more than two 5-meter or shorter, solid or stranded, 568B terminated patch cables in the run. Use shielded patch cables if the run is shielded to maintain shield continuity.

• Use no more than two keystones or couplers in the run. Use shielded keystones or couplers with shielded cable to maintain continuity.

• Cleanly terminate all cable ends and test every cable used before connecting the extender to avoid troubleshooting termination problems later.

• Mark each end of the HDBaseT cable with the included labels to avoid confusion later.

Cable Connector - RJ45

• Use a high-quality RJ45 connector that matches or exceeds the standard of the cable in use.

Shielded connectors must be used with shielded cables, and must maintain continuity of the shield to both connectors to protect from interference.

• We discourage the use of “EZ” style, open end RJ45s with HDMI extenders.

• Always terminate RJ45 connectors in the HDBaseT signal path to the 568B termination standard as indicated by HDBaseT standards.

5.2. HDMI Cable

• Use Binary (or similar) 2 meter or shorter, High Speed rated HDMI cables between any device and the HDMI IN port of the Transmitter for the best performance.

• The Transmitter should work with a longer cable, but in the case of any picture or sync issues, it is recommended to use an HDMI cable that is 2 meters or less between the equipment and the

Transmitter to troubleshoot accurately.

• Avoid using HDMI keystones. The best practice for HDMI cables is to have one unbroken cable between the Transmitter and other equipment.

6. Power Supply

The B-500-TX-230-IR uses a 12V DC power supply.

Power Supply Voltage Warning! Before applying power to the Transmitter, read the label on the power supply to confirm that it is 12V DC. Connecting the wrong voltage power supply may cause damage to the

Transmitter or the supply.

Follow these steps to install the transmitter:

1. Turn off all equipment to be connected.

Do not connect power to the B-500-TX-230-IR until all other connections are made.

2. Run the HDBaseT cable from the location of the Transmitter to the location of the Receiver and terminate the ends.

3. Test the HDBaseT cable using a continuity tester or network analyzer.

4. Connect the HDBaseT cable to the B-500-TX-230-IR Transmitter and the Receiver being used.

5. Connect an HDMI cable between the HDMI IN port of the B-500-TX-230-IR and the HDMI output of the equipment.

6. Screw the power connector into the latch-locking jack on the Transmitter, and then plug the power supply into an AC outlet. The Power LED at the Transmitter should illuminate solid RED.

7. Test the system by playing media at the highest resolution that can be supported by all of the equipment.

8. After testing is complete and the unit is functional, mount the Transmitter in the desired location, or continue to the next page to set up IR pass-through.

Important! It is essential to have HDBaseT pass-through working correctly before other features are configured, so make sure this portion of the install is functional before setting up IR serial pass-through.

8. IR Pass-Through

IR pass-through may be used to control displays from the transmitting location (via commands from an automation system), or to control sources using IR remotes in the rooms where displays are located.

Commands may be passed in both directions at once if necessary.
