Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Product Overview: The C5-VGAWM is
a transformer (Balun) to convert a CAT-5 signal to VGA video, and vice versa.
Typically two are used at opposite ends of the signal path; one unit converts
the video source to CAT-5 for transmission over a long distance, a second unit
converts the CAT-5 signal back to VGA to feed a monitor.
The Balun is designed to fit into a single gang J-box using the included wall
plate. Multiple insert plates can be mounted in larger J-boxes using
Decora-style wall plates designed to cover multiple gang J-boxes.
VGA: The female DB-15HD connector (D-sub15)
on the front of the C5-VGAWM can
be used as an input and converted to CAT-5, or as an output to feed a monitor.
RJ-45 jack on the back of the unit can be used as an input and converted to VGA, or as an
output to feed the network.
