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.
