***In order to ensure a common signal ground, Cat5e/6 shielded twisted pair (STP) is highly recommended. Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) may be used only when there is full signal ground continuity between the VGA source and the VGA display.***
The MuxLab 500010 VGA Balun allows VGA video signals to be transmitted up to 450 feet (137 meters) via a 4-pair Cat 5e/6 twisted pair cable for more cost-effective and versatile cabling. Used in pairs, the VGA Balun eliminates costly and bulky VGA cables, enabling VGA monitors to be connected at extended distances from the PC via standard Cat 5e/6 twisted pair cable. Used in pairs, one VGA Balun (500010) connects to the VGA source (i.e. output) and one VGA Balun (500011 or 500014) connects to the VGA destination (i.e. monitor input). The VGA Balun transmits the RGB video, horizontal and vertical synchronization pulses. Since the VGA Balun is a passive device and uses only 8 wires, it does not support VGA handshaking/control signals.
