General Description

2. General Description

Abbreviation 1: VL-66203 Receiver

Abbreviation 2: VL-66203 Transmitter

The VL-66203 system (DVI and USB CAT Extender) consists of a transmitter and a receiver module
and is used to extend maximum distance of USB and DVI link.

CAT 5e AWG 26 not in spec. @ 1000 MHz

Table 1: TMDS maximum transmitting range for different configurations

The maximum distance of the transmission depends on the quality of cables and used resolu-
tion.

The maximum USB path distance is 40 m. VL-66203 is designated to be used in KVM sys-
tems, this implies USB 1.1 Low-Bandwidth (1,5 Mbit/s). VL-66203 can be used with devices
which use USB 1.1 Full-Bandwidth (12 Mbit/s), in this case a CAT7 cable (for example Draka
Super Screen UC900 CAT7 AWG 27) is recommended for the USB path extension.

4.1 Connection

Abbreviation 3: Connection

DVI signals are transmitted through two CAT cables. TMDS (Transition-Minimized Differential
Signaling) path transfers high-speed video signals (RGB and pixel clock), DDC (Display Data
Channel) path transfers DVI DDC signals and additional signals like a Hot Plug Detection. For
establishing proper DVI link between signal source and sink both CAT cables must be con-
nected.

DIL switch on the front panel of the receiver sets level of equalization. The switch on the front
panel of the transmitter is used to set de-emphasis. In most cases transmitter de-emphasis
should be set to -3 dB and line equalization should be done with receiver setting.

4.2 Mounting

The system offers the possibility of din rail mounting. For this purpose the brackets, depend-
ing on the installation position, attached to the underside of each unit to lock on the rail. An
earth terminal is located on the side of each module. RJ-45 sockets can be used with sleeve
housings, for example VS-08-T-RJ45/IP 20 1688638 from Phoenix Contact.
