Essential Info

The interference from a wall mount TV can wreak havoc with your IR control system. Xantech designed this Universal Micro Link IR Receiver to resist the interference from plasma, LCD and LED TVs, as well as fluorescent and compact fluorescent lighting (CFL), and sunlight - so you can mount this receiver in any room with confidence. The Universal Micro Link IR Receiver Kit makes it possible to control up to four different audio and video components behind solid doors or walls using your existing IR remote.

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 and extended range of this receiver allows it to receive IR commands up to 120 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.

Local System Application
One application is to locate the IR receiver in a central location, near a TV, video screen and/or a speaker. The audio/video equipment can then be hidden inside a cabinet or located away from the front of a room. This will give the end-user the ability to direct a remote control to one central location and not have to worry about aiming to the respective device to be controlled.

Remote Room Application
Another application is to locate the IR receiver in a remote room. This will give the end-user the ability to control audio/video equipment from a location where the remote control no longer has the ability of direct line-of-sight.

  • More Info

    Drill a 1/2" hole in any surface, such as a cabinet panel. Pass the lead and the body of the ML95 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.

    Cable Connections
    ML95s 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.

    Jim Lafave -- genoa, NV   6/9/2011
    Works perfectly with my Dish Network HD/PVR Sat Receiver, AppleTV2, Yamaha Receiver, Pioneer DVD player and Panasonic Plasma TV. I previously owned an older Xantech IP system that was unable to control the AppleTV and Dish receiver and the ML95K works fantastic. Also, much faster response time compared to the older system I had.

    Very easy to set up and performs perfectly. The ideal solution to hiding your components behind a cabinet door!
