MuxLab 500040 overview

  • 1Description

The MuxLab 500040 VGA Balun II (PC Side) allows a VGA source (PC / laptop) to be connected to a VGA video display device like a CRT, LCD, plasma screen or a DLP/multimedia projector using a 4-pair Cat5E/6 UTP cable. Capable of transmitting SVGA video up to 350' (107m) at 800 x 600 resolution, the PC side balun uses either p/n 500041 or 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 setups.

With an ABS fire-retardant plastic enclosure, the balun can be freestanding and comes with a hook and loop fastener for mounting.

    MuxLab 500040 reviews

    500040 VGA Balun II (PC Side) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this device 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Used this item to connect a computer to a projector over a long distance with ethernet cat-5 cable instead of VGA which is heavier and more expensive. Worked well. Also, was told that other models need a separate power source, but this one didn't.
