The Wirelink system distributes infrared remote control commands via a cable network allowing control of PayTV decoders, VCRs and stereos from other rooms in the house. For each room, where you wish control the equipment from, an infrared receiver head (IRM01-38 or IRM02-38) and a Receiver Station is installed and connected to the wire network. These two devices convert the remote control commands into electrical signals that are sent along the wire network. Emitter Stations are connected at another point in the wire network, where the equipment to be controlled is located. The Emitter Station converts the electrical signals received from the Wire network into infrared signals that are transmitted out of the Emitters (see Emitter Pair) and control the equipment to which the emitters are fitted.
Receiver and emitter stations are connected together via 3 wires to the three way screw connector on each station. The underside of the screw connector is labelled +, G and S.
All receiver and emitters stations are parallel wired to each other in the system and a power supply is connected to the system at some convenient point between + and G. Stations are protected from accidental swapping of connections (for example + for G or S for +) provided the supply voltage does not exceed the rated maximum (18V).
The case arrangement of the WIRELINK stations can either be free standing, mounted in an existing flush mount wall plate (such as an antenna outlet) or mounted in it's own flush mount wall plate.
Typically cat5 cable is used in installations however other telecom cable types may also be employed. Cabling can either be star wired or daisy chained or a combination of both whatever is easiest for specific installation.
