    500040-42PK - Overview

    The VGA Balun II eliminates costly and bulky VGA cable, allowing a VGA source to be connected to a VGA monitor via one 4-pair Cat 5 unshielded twisted pair UTP cable.Used in pairs, the VGA Balun II allows VGA video to be transmitted up to 350ft via Cat 5 at 800 x 600 resolution. The products feature a reset button that may be required when using certain displays, Doesn't support DDC handshake.The VGA Balun II works in conjunction with laptops, PCs, plasmas, CRT, LCD monitors and DLP projectors. Typical applications include digital signage, boardroom systems, classroom video instruction and custom audio-video systems.

      • Please note:The VGA Balun II does not support VGA handshaking and control signals. Therefore it is necessary to set the monitor attributes prior to installing the VGA baluns. In order to do this,first connect the standard VGA cable directly from the PC to the monitor and then set the monitor attributes to the required settings (i.e., resolution, color, etc.). Also, in order to achieve optimum results via twisted pair, set the contrast and brightness levels to maximum.
    • Item Includes:
