The URA-232-XT Mini-Cat® is a daisy-chainable Video, Audio and RS232 over UTP (Cat5/5e/6) receiver. It has an RJ45 input, with a compensated RJ45 output for driving downstream receivers. This eliminates the need for running separate cables from every receiver back to the sender (in star or home-run fashion) – a very useful feature when several receivers are located in a line going away from the sender. It can accommodate a total daisy-chain length of 3,750 feet (> 1 Km) with up to 5 devices in each chain. supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at 60Hz. The URA-232-XT can be extended with more URA, URA-SKU, URA-XT or URA-232-XT receivers. Made in the USA.
In a typical application the RS-232 port on the unit is used for transmit only to issue power commands to connected displays (the RS-232 RX pin is used for programming the URA-232-XT for remote trigger operation). There are 3 ways to issue commands please see Serial Command Modes Demystified

Important note about use with YPbPr signalUsing the standard URA-232-XT with Component Video can produce excessive brightness and contrast. Therefore, this unit is not recommended for use with Component Video (YPbPr).
For use with YPbPr signal, please order the model URA-232-XT-CP. The cost is the same and the unit is identical to URA-232-xt in every way except it is optimized for Component Video signal levels.
