Essential Info

Many new homes and office buildings already contain structured cabling systems of not only electrical and phone wiring, but also inexpensive cat. 5 twisted pair cable, which is commonly used as a data line. Now you can take maximum advantage of this existing wiring by adding baluns to each end. These small transformers convert audio, video, digital, or VGA signals from unbalanced to balanced and vice versa, making the necessary impedance adjustments for A/V signal transmission between different wiring systems. This means that you can run your signal over inexpensive cat. 5 wiring, rather than rewiring your home in order to send these signals from room to room. This pair of USB Baluns is designed for digital, high-performance signal transmission up to 300 feet, allowing a USB cable to be replaced by an inexpensive cat. 5 twisted pair cable. The system is powered via the USB output of the source device.

    Kit Details
    The Intelix USB Balun Kit transmits a USB 1.1 or 2.0 signal up to 330 feet over standard unshielded twisted pair cabling, such as Cat 5 or Cat 6. This set is ideal for sending 1.5 Mbps or 12 Mbps USB signals extended distances. The Intelix DIGI-USB-F includes both send and receive baluns and a 5-foot USB cable.

    What are Baluns?
    Because they contain isolation transformers and utilize twisted cabling, baluns eliminate the ground loops that cause background hum and rolling interference. Baluns also extend transmission distances, passively transmitting audio and video signals up to 2500 feet and actively transmitting VGA signals up to 550 feet.
