> Carries VGA signal over CAT5e cable up to 60m (80m with CAT6)
> Audio loops through transmitter (not carried over CAT5 cable)
> Power adaptor can be used at either end
One-Minute Product Profile
Vision’s “Techconnect Twist” products allow a variety of signals to be transmitted long distances over standard unshielded CAT5 cable. Complete with an active transmitter and receiver the ‘TC2 VGATP’ enables use of cheap flexible CAT5 cable to route ‘VGA’ signal from a computer to a display device.
The transmitter presents as a normal Vision Techconnect VGA and minijack module from the front, allowing tidy clip-in installation.
Up to 60m
VGA signal is weak which limits cable length. The VGATP overcomes this and can send 1024 x 768 resolution signal through standard unshielded CAT5e cable up to 60m long. Using CAT6 cable extended the maximum length to 80m.
Proprietary power-over-ethernet technology means only one mains power adaptor is required to power both the transmitter and receiver. The included international power adaptor can use used at either end.
Installers can take advantage in buildings which have been flood-wired with network cable. Where a CAT5 cable is already in place the installation is super-fast.
Replacing VGA cable with a twisted pair cable means if in the future you need to replace the VGA with HDMI or DisplayPort you can just change the adaptors at the ends.
An equalisation adjustment pot on the receiver allows for varying cable length.
Easier to work with
Compared to VGA cable CAT5 is much less expensive and is easier to work with; it has a tighter bend-radius, is thinner, easier to pull, and simple to terminate.
Note: This product does not support the SCL and SDA lines which carry ‘Display Data Channel’ (DDC) or the related ‘Extended Display Identification Data’ (EDID) data.
