Essential Info

The IR receiver is a small peep-hole style infrared repeater assembly, perfect for a nearly flush in-wall or cabinet installation with minimal footprint for a professional finish. The high sensitivity of this receiver allows it to receive IR commands up to 80 feet away, it also includes a 'talkback' LED so you'll know the command was received and sent to the emitter. Using the included connecting block, you can connect the IR receiver to the four IR emitter ports. The connecting block supplies power to the IR receiver using the included power supply. The connecting block receives IR signals coming from the IR receiver and distributes the IR signals out to your audio and video components using the included IR emitters. With a Xantech IR Kit, equipment can now be concealed for clean room design. In addition, a centralized IR receiver means there is only one IR target resulting in improved remote control interaction. Featuring color-coded connectors, a Xantech IR Kit is easy to install, and allows a worry-free installation. Includes Black, Brass and White bezels.

Please note: Connecting block, power supply, and emitters are sold separately - or they can all be purchased together with this receiver as a kit.


What's Included

  • DLP/CRT Proof Micro Link IR Receiver
  • Owner's manual
  • Black, brass and white bezels
  • More Info

    Drill a 1/2" hole in any surface, such as a cabinet panel. Pass the lead and the body of the ML85 through the hole and secure from the rear with the nut (supplied).

    The IR receiver should be located so that it is not directly facing a light source such as lamps or displays (standard, LCD, and Plasma). When mounted near a display, it should be flush to the display and away from light reflections that may occur.

    The IR receiver may also be used where the 7-foot cable is not long enough. Simply cut off the mini plug, strip the leads and splice them to a 3-conductor extension cable with a terminal block or other means. Then connect the extension cable to the 3- or 4-terminal block on the connecting block.
