Slide 16 of 19


Infrared Resources LLC came out with this very handy tool for whole-house IR distribution over the home's existing powerlines. Here's how the company describes it: The IRP-OP technology is a new (Patent Pending) method to extend the IR signal over existing 110-250V power line in the home, office, or small building up to 100M (328ft). The extender utilizes power lines to transfer the infrared signal. It works with any 30-60kHz IR frequency device, however, the design accommodates 1-100kHz frequency as well. This makes the IRP-OP future proof as new technology emerges that require 60-100kHz compatibility. Advanced filter technology effectively blocks stray noise from IRI, CFL, ESI, EMI, LCD, Plasma, and the sun. The RX and TX units are also the power supply's that simply plug into any wall outlet for simple plug and play. No need to run additional cables to make connection between receiver and the transmitter.
