PC-IRS5-01 External IR Receiver Extender Module Kit
This kit consists of two cables as shown in the pictures above. The shorter cable is plugged into the IRS5 board on one end and mounted on the back of the computer case on the other end. The IR Receiver module is then plugged into the connector installed on the back of the case. You can see exactly how to install the kit in our video which is posted on You Tube.
This will allow the IRS5 to receive IR signals from your remote in any location away from the computer. The cable on the module is 5 feet long. It can be extended by 12 feet or by 25 feet by using the available extension cables. We have tested this module with (2) 25 foot long extensions making the distance from the computer over 50 feet. This will allow you to hide your computer case a good distance from the IR Receiver module if desired.
If this kit was not purchased with the PC-IRS5-01, purchasing now will allow you the same fuctionality and it is easy to install after the fact.
