The Gefen EXT-DVIRS232-CAT5N extends DVI and RS-232 up to 300 feet. The DVI extender sends hi-def video and RS232 signals over two economical CAT5 cables, up to 300 feet away. This distance is guaranteed to give you a reliable method of all-digital extension while streamlining your installation cabling needs.

You connect the DVI RS232 Extender sender unit to your DVI and RS232 source using the supplied cables. Your DVI display, monitor or touch screen plugs into the DVI RS-232 Extender's receiver unit - up to 300 feet away. Two CAT-5 cables connect the sender and the receiver units to each other, linking local and remote locations.
