Video Storm CMX4816V 48×16 Composite Video Matrix

Video Storm CMX4816V 48x16 Composite Video Matrix

  • The CMX4816V Composite Video Switch has 48 composite video input sets (Y cables need to be used to split each input to red/green/blue jacks) and 16 independently controllable composite video output sets. For audio, the unit has 14 digital audio input sets (8 coaxial and 6 Toslink) and 14 independently controllable digital audio output sets with transcoding (8 coaxial and 6 Toslink). This unit is the ideal amplifier for driving long video cables in your home. Many manufacturers claim their products can do this, but very few can accomplish this without distortion of the video. The most important amplifier design factors in driving long cables are source impedance matching, output connector quality, amplifier bandwidth, and amplifier current drive and slew rate.

    The CMX4816V has an Ethernet port/RS-232 and can be fully controlled using a standard web browser. This allows you to use any networked PC, or even your Smartphone, to control this matrix switch. This unit also supports firmware updates. By keeping your matrix up to date with the latest firmware, this will add the capability to control products released at future dates.

    The CMX4816V contains ZeroKey Technology which clones the IR code so that any control key on virtually any remote can control the matrix switch. This technology does not interfere with the normal operation of the remote. The best way to use this technology is to program the CMX4816V with the same keys you normally push to switch your AV receiver or TV. The CMX4816V will switch at the same time as your TV or receiver without the need for complicated macros or pushing extra buttons. ZeroKey programming is stored in flash memory and you will not need to reprogram even if you lose power. If you buy a new remote to operate your home entertainment center, the CMX4816V can be reprogrammed as much as you like.

    Connections to and from the Matrix Switcher require the use of a Y Cable adapter, Digital Coax cable and an Optical Digital Audio cable, sold separately.

    The CMX4816V has the following features:

    • 48 composite video input sets
    • 16 independently controllable composite video output sets
    • 14 digital audio input sets (8 coaxial and 6 Toslink)
    • 14 independently controllable digital audio output set with transcoding (8 coaxial and 6 Toslink)
    • RS-232 input for serial control
    • RS-232 output for expansion and HDMI matrix control

    Video Distribution
    CMX4816V is the ideal amplifier for driving long video cables in your home. The most important amplifier design factors in driving long cables are source impedance matching, output connector quality, amplifier bandwidth, and amplifier current drive and slew rate. The CMX4816 uses the best components for all these, resulting in the best signal distribution you can get.

GWC Technology FP4220 2-Port RS-232 PCI Express Card

GWC Technology FP4220 2-Port RS-232 PCI Express Card

  • The GWC Technology FP4220 adds two RS-232 serial ports to your full height or low profile computer through a PCI Express slot. The FP4220 PCI Express based serial card turns a PCI Express slot into 2 RS-232 (DB9) serial connections. The adapter card is based on a native single chip design, that allows you to harness the full capability of PCI Express (PCIe) – providing optimum reliability and speed while reducing the load applied to the CPU by as much as 48% over conventional (bridge chip) serial cards. The RS232 serial adapter card is compatible with a broad range of operating systems.

    This card is also available in a low profile PCIe format with Two Ports or Four Ports, each sold separately.

Venstar ACC0414RF Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor

Venstar ACC0414RF Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor

  • Increase the functionality of your Venstar thermostat with the addition of a Venstar Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor. This sensor can be mounted inside or outside of your home to allow for the monitoring of temperature in an additional location on your property. The sensor is battery powered and transmits a wireless signal back to a Venstar Wireless Sensor Receiver (required and sold separately) so no professional installation or wiring is necessary. It can be used to report the outdoor temperature when using a compatible residential thermostat, report the temperature of a room, or to report the temperature in a space that is different from where a compatible thermostat is located. The sensor has a working temperature reading range of 32°F (-10°F if using lithium batteries) to 127°F The temperature sensor and sensor receiver will work with Venstar 1-Day Programmable Digital Thermostat, 7-day Programmable Digital Thermostat, and 7-Day Programmable Thermostat, Dual Fuel. The Remote Temperature Sensor requires the use of two AA batteries, included.

    Applications

    • To report the outdoor temperature when using a compatible residential thermostat it is recommended to attach the Wireless Sensor to a north facing wall where it will not be in direct sunlight or the spray of sprinklers. If the Outdoor Sensor is mounted on a rough surface, it is recommended that silicon rubber sealant be used around the entire edge of the mounting plate. If mounting on an electrical junction box, be sure the seal between the junction box and sensor mounting plate is tight.
    • To report the temperature of a room, such as that of a baby’s room when using a compatible residential thermostat.
    • To report the temperature in a space that is different from where a compatible thermostat is located.

      Transmitting Intervals

    • Every 10 Seconds – This setting is most useful for Indoor Remote Sensor applications where fast response is needed.
    • Every 2 Minutes – This setting is used for Indoor Remote Sensor applications where a moderately fast response is needed.
    • Every 5 Minutes – This setting is also used for Indoor Remote Sensor applications under normal circumstances. At this setting battery life expectancy is approximately 3 years.
    • Every 10 Minutes – This setting is used for Outdoor Temperature reading. With this setting battery life expectancy is at its longest.

      The Wireless Temperature Sensor Requires a Wireless Sensor Receiver
      The Venstar Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor requires the use of a Venstar Wireless Sensor Receiver to communicate back to a compatible Venstar thermostat; receiver and thermostat sold separately. Up to eight Wireless Temperature Sensors may be used with one Receiver. The Receiver automatically averages the temperatures from up to eight Wireless Temperature Sensors on the same House Code and reports that average to the thermostat. The Receiver will only ‘listen’ to Wireless Sensors with the same House Code as the Receiver, and will ‘ignore’ sensors with different House Codes than the Receiver. If more than one Wireless Sensor is used with one Receiver, then all Sensors and the Receiver must have the same House Code for proper operation. If more than one Wireless Sensor is used with one Receiver, then each Sensor must have a different Unit ID.

      Suggested USes for Multiple Wireless Remote Sensors
      To control to the average of multiple Wireless Sensors in a large open space using a compatible Commercial thermostat. This type of application would include large, open office areas.
