DGKat™ Signal Integration — Kramer’s unique technology for converting TMDS as well as control and communication to signals that run over twisted pair cables.
Cable — Requires STP (shielded twisted pair) cable. For optimum range and performance, use shielded Kramer CAT 6 or CAT 7 cables. Note that the transmission range depends on the signal resolution, graphics card and display used. The distance using non–Kramer CAT 6 and CAT 7 cables may not reach these ranges. Use only shielded cable where both ends of the shield are soldered to ground.
Power Connect™ System — A single connection to the transmitter powers both units when the devices are within 150ft (50m) of each other.
Local Step–In Switching — Button & contact closure.
