CAT5•8500 - EXT-CAT5-8500
Computer Extension : the CAT5-8000/CAT5-8500
Operate Three Displays at Long Range Distances
Multi-Video Extension for the Discriminating Computer User
Designed for triple-video extension, the CAT5-8000 comes in two versions that both extend three analog video monitors, one RS-232 device, USB control signals and audio hundreds of feet from the computer. Video, RS-232 and audio signals can be effectively operated at any distance up to 600-feet while USB control signals (for keyboard/mouse) can operate up to 450-feet from the computer. What differentiates the two versions is the video extension techniques and the amount of cabling needed for extension.
CAT5-8000 - High Resolution Video Extension
The CAT5-8000 sends three analog monitors, one USB-equipped keyboard/mouse, one audio output, and one RS-232 device (like a touchscreen) far from the computer using multiple CAT5 cables. It's designed for those situations where multiple extended video screens are desired. USB control, audio and RS-232 support is provided to enable remote operation for improved performance.
CAT5-8500 - Additional Video Refinement
The CAT5-8500 operates just like the CAT5-8000 but it sends its video signals separately using their own CAT5 cable. This means it requires an additional CAT5 extension cable but it also enables video refinement capabilities for the extended monitors. Both video signals can also be extended a few hundred feet further (up to 600-feet) if needed. The CAT5-8500 is often reserved for those who have greater video requirements.
Both versions work with all CRT and LCD computer monitors, USB keyboards/mice, RS-232 and audio devices (Mac or PC).
How it works
Both versions use a sender and receiver methodology to transmit signals from the computer to the workstation. The sender connects to the computer using the cables provided. The receiver connects to the three monitors, RS232 and audio devices up to 600-feet away (USB can be extended up to 450-feet). Multiple CAT5 extension cables (up to 4 for the CAT5-8000; up to 5 for the CAT5-8500), sold separately, connect the sender to the receiver and thus the computer to the extended workstation. Both the sender and the receiver must be connected to a power supply. When fully powered and operational, the units extend all signals efficiently and reliably.
