The GC-CGX is used to connect a GC-100 IR output to a Xantech IR input. GC-100 IR outputs are converted to meet the IR input requirements for a Xantech IR distribution environment. IR signals from 30KHz to 72KHz can now be sent through an existing Xantech IR installation directly from a GC-100. The GC-CGX is optically isolated to ensure circuit isolation and protection.
The GC-CGX is optically isolated to avoid noise and ground loop issues found when systems are powered by multiple sources. When properly connected, the GC-100 IR outputs will operate and function as if the commands were sent by the third party device. When used with a GC-100, the GC-CGX requires no power supply and supports an IR frequency range from 30 KHz to 500 KHz; third party devices typically do not exceed 120 KHz. Do NOT use extension cables between the GC-100 and GC-CGX; this would cause high-frequency degradation. Also, when using an extension cable between the GC-CGX and the distribution box, it should not exceed 12 feet for frequencies above 100 KHz.
If no 3.5 mm jack is available on the third party device, cut the CGX cable a few inches from end of the plug (not the GC-100 side.)
