The MuxLab 500042 VGA Balun II (Monitor Side) allows a VGA video display device like the CRT, LCD, plasma screen or a DLP/multimedia projector to be connected to a VGA source (PC / laptop) using Cat5E/6 cable. Capable of receiving SVGA video up to 350' (107m) at 800 x 600 resolution, the monitor side balun uses either a p/n 500041 or a 500042 connector.

The Balun II supports wide-screen formats (16:9, 1366 x 768), and features a reset button and a ground screw. The reset button is meant for sync-sensitive displays (used when the VGA source connected to the display is re-started or re-booted) and the ground screw is needed in case of a yellowish hue on the display screen.

Allowing you to replace the bulky VGA cable by space and cost saving Cat5E/6 cable, the VGA Balun II finds wide application in digital signage, meeting rooms, training rooms, classroom visual teaching aids and other audio-video systems. Use of the VGA Balun II (with Cat5E/6 cables) facilitates placing the display device at extended distances from the video source in classroom / training rooms, and helps distribute the display monitors throughout a complex in case of video information set-ups.

        This item works very well. We had to do 2 150 foot runs to monitors down the room. These little devices came in handy. Much cheaper than 300 feet of VGA cable.

            We are connecting two monitors to a PC and mounting the monitors high on a wall, displaying a URL only. The PC is located in another room with all of the cabling running through the ceiling. These allow all of this to happen without having the PC or cables hanging around looking like an eye sore or taking up space. Did this in the past with older models but these allow for better resolution. No complaints!
