Ram Electronics Infrared Extender Repeater Kit 92-160

Little did I know that there are different kinds of infrared repeaters, but Ionly found two types - wired, and wireless. The wireless units all use radio frequencyto pass the signal around. I'd rather not pollute the house and neighborhoodwith more RF than necessary, and I didn't want to be concerned with intermittentbehavior due to signals others might already be generating, so I knew already that I wanted a wired unit.

Remote Control Infrared Extender/ Infrared Repeater is a product which amplifies the IR signal of your appliances. By connecting this repeater to your appliances, you may be able to conceal your appliances such as in your TV console or cabinet.

There are 3 main parts in this IR Extender/ IR Repeater namely Infrared Emitter ( IR Emitter), Infrared Receiver ( IR Receiver ) & Infrared Transmitter.

The emitter is to be pasted on the IR point of your appliances while the receiver is placed in a position of which it communicate signal with your remote control. The IR transmitter box process signal received from the Receiver and generate signals out to Emitters which in turn to your Players/ Appliances.
