Eight Channel Video Link Receiver Card - Selectable 100 ft to 6,000 ft - For Use with VH3200
The TR560x8 is designed for use with the modular rack system. The system holds modular cards in any combination, using the VH3200 card cage (not included). This modular plug-in feature allows the system to be custom configured for each application and provides easy expandability.
The TR560x8 is designed for operation over Category 2 or better twisted pair cable. The system works equally well over existing communication and computer network spare pairs or new cable installations. A highly balanced transmitter output design assures that the system will not interfere with other equipment on the network. Advanced receiver electronics provide complete immunity from ground loop, hum and noise to produce maximum video quality with minimum loss.
A DIP switch on the receiver unit provides incremental adjustment of gain and frequency compensation to allow the system to be fine-tuned for an existing cable. This unique feature provides adjustment for optimum performance over the entire operating range and also allows cable length to be estimated with a wide safety margin. The TR560x8 includes only the receiver card.
- Active electronics compensate for frequency and level loss
- Built-in protection from power surge, transients, static or other electrical interference
- High resolution color or monochrome video
- Complete immunity to ground loop; video and AC can be run in a common raceway, where code allows
- Video detect LEDs for each receiver
- Elevators - making traveling coax unnecessary
- High Rise Buildings - between floors
- Detention Facilities - using existing twisted pairs
- Campus Facilities - where running coax or fiber is difficult and expensive
Wire and Cable Recommendations
Twisted Sender is recommended for use with unshielded twisted pair (UTP) wiring. The systems will operate over wire gauges from 26 AWG through 12 AWG but are optimized for 24 AWG. Category 2, 3, 4 or 5 cable may be used. Individually shielded pairs should be avoided, as they drastically reduce the operating range of the systems. Multi-pair cable with an overall shield is acceptable. Video can be operated in the same communication cable coexistent with telephone, computer, control signals, power voltages and other video signals. While video may be routed through telephone punch-down block terminals, any bridge-taps, also called T-taps and any resistive, capacitive or inductive devices MUST BE removed from the pair.
