This document details the functionality and operation of the InfraRed Upgrades for KAT5 AVS units.|
The IR Upgrade provides the following functionality
Connecting the Remote Sensor and IR Emitter.
The IR Sensor is a small square block on the end of approximately 600mm of cable. This is terminated with a 3 conductor 3.5mm Jack Plug and should be plugged into the KAT5 Receiver. One side of the sensor has a raised dome, this is the part that picks up the IR signals. The sensor should be located where is has an unobstructed view of any IR handset that will be pointed at it.
The IR Emitter is a small circular button on the end of approx 1 metre of cable. This is terminated with a 2 conductor 3.5mm jack plug and should be plugged into the KAT5 Transmitter. The choice of fixing is left to the user but consideration should be given to possible damage to the fascia of the source equipment.
Suggested methods of fixing (in no particular order) are
It may be necessary to experiment a little before the optimum location for the emitter is found. If direct control of the source equipment is also required it may be necessary to mount the emitter away from the fascia slightly so as not to impede other IR signals.
Single IR emitters from other manufacturers should also work without problems. Single Emitters with "Blink LED's" or Double IR emitters may work but this cannot be guaranteed.
If desired, moving a link inside the KAT5 receiver can disable Manual IR control or All SCART control. The three options are shown below.
NOTE: Widescreen Switching was an amendment to the original SCART specification. Because of this not all equipment may support this option. Equipment that does not implement widescreen switching generally defaults to standard Full Screen mode.
