Introduction
About the IRL 20
The Extron IRL 20 is a hardwired infrared (IR) signal receiver
for use with Extron IR remote controls and an Extron
MediaLink™ Controller (MLC), MediaLink Switcher, System 5 IP
Switcher, or AVT 100. The IRL 20 receives a signal via its front
panel from an Extron IR remote operating at 38 kHz. It can also
receive IR input via an optional Extron IR Sensor, which is
smaller and less visible than the IRL 20. It outputs the
modulated IR signal via an IR Emitter or the IR Link or CM/IR/
SCP port of a device mentioned above, allowing that device to
be mounted out of sight in a rack or furniture.
Features
Compactness and flexibility — The IRL 20’s small enclosure
can be secured to any surface without having to cut any
holes in furniture or walls. This allows for a wide range
of mounting locations.

the cable identically (ground to ground, signal to signal,
and so forth).
Only three wires are required, but use four wires if the
IRL 20 will be daisy chained with MediaLink Control
Modules. Refer to the device’s manual for details on ports
and pin assignments

Typical applications for the IRL 20
Do not connect more than one IRL 20 or IR Link (either
in parallel or in series) to an Extron device.
3.
Plug the 5-pole connector into one of the IRL 20’s
communications connectors.
4.
Plug the other end of the cable into the appropriate port of
the switcher, controller, control module, or AVT. Refer to
the device’s manual for details on ports and pin
assignments.
Do not connect more than one (1) IRL 20 (either in
parallel or in series) to a switcher. Also, read the user’s
or installation manual for each product to determine the
maximum quantity of control modules that can be used.
5.

Plug one end of another cable into the IRL 20’s remaining
communications connector. Plug the other end of the cable
into a communications connector on an optional control
module.
IRL 20 • Installation and Operation
Connecting an IRL 20 to a power supply and an
IR Emitter
An external, stand-alone power supply is only necessary if the
IRL 20 is not connected to an Extron device that is able to
supply power to it.
1.
Attach an external 12 VDC power supply the +12 VDC pin
and the ground pin of a 3.5 mm captive screw connector,
and plug it into one of the IRL 20’s communications
connectors as shown on the next page.
Connect a maximum of one IRL 20. Do not connect
more than one IRL 20 (either in parallel or in series).

2.
Attach the black wire of an Extron IR Emitter to pin B
(ground) and the white striped wire to pin D (IR signal) of
a 3.5 mm captive screw connector, and plug it into the
IRL 20’s remaining communications connector, as shown
below. Two or three emitters can be wired to the same
connector, if needed.
You can use one 5-pole connector to connect both the
power input and the IR Emitter (IR output). It is not
necessary to use two connectors.
3.
Place the head of the IR Emitter near or in front of the IR
pickup device of the IR-controllable Extron product.
