  • Accepts IR signals from two different rooms
  • Sends IR signals to up to 8 A/V components through its emitter outputs
  • Part of Xantech's IR repeating system

Essential Info

You can now control up to eight A/V components in another room using your standard IR remote controls, thanks to Xantech. The 1-Zone Connecting Block is an integral part of Xantech's IR repeating system, which sends IR signals over unshielded 3-conductor inter-room cable (sold separately). An IR Receiver is required and sold separately, as are IR emitters, which attach to your components, delivering your IR signals. The 1-Zone Connecting Block (4 Emitter Outs) provides a low-cost means of connecting Xantech IR receivers to one single or dual emitter and a power supply.


What's Included

  • 1x - Connecting Block
  • 1x - Instruction Manual
  • Mounting Screws

  • More Info

    The 1-Zone Connecting Block has two inputs: a four-terminal VGS block for wired connection of Xantech IR receivers and Smart Pad keypads, as well as a 3.5mm stereo mini jack, which will accept any Xantech IR receiver equipped with a 3.5mm stereo mini plug, such as the Tabletop IR Sensor (sold separately). This connecting block features four 3.5mm mini jack outputs that can connect to dual IR emitters to control up to eight different A/V components. Also available is the 1-Zone Connecting Block with 1 Emitter Out (sold separately).

    The 1-Zone Connecting Block has a status terminal, which provides a convenient tie point for voltage to drive the status indicator on certain Xantech products.

    Power for the 1-Zone Connecting Block is supplied through its 2.1mm coaxial power jack for Xantech's 12-Volt Regulated Power Supply (sold separately).
