About the Niles MS210

Amanda P.
This small IR (infrared) sensor works as part of an IR repeater system, letting you control audio/video components concealed inside a cabinet or hidden in another room. It picks up commands from your audio/video system's remote control. The MS210's tiny size and built-in adhesive strip allow for flexible placement — on the front of your component cabinet, for example, or on your TV's bezel.

To complete your IR repeater system, you'll also need:

  • An IR hub: The hub accepts the IR signals from the MS210 sensor, and passes the instructions on to your A/V gear via IR flashers.
  • IR flashers: The IR hub passes the commands from the MS210 to these infrared light-emitting devices, which in turn control your components.
  • Infrared cable to wire your IR repeater system (10 feet included).

Features

IR System Overview: An infrared (IR) extender system enables you to control your IR remote controlled A/V equipment from a remote location. This enables you to place your A/V components out of sight (behind cabinet doors, in the rear of a room, or in a different room) and still conveniently control your equipment.

IR System Components: The MS210 miniature surface-mount IR sensor is one of three elements that make up an infrared extender system:

IR Main System Unit (sold separately): The IR Main System Unit provides a connection hub for the IR sensors and the IR flashers and is generally located near the A/V components. The Main System Unit's level controls and LED indicators enable you to calibrate and troubleshoot an IR extender system. The Main System Unit is the "heart" of an IR extender system.

IR Sensors/Keypad:

IR Sensors: IR Sensors are the "eyes" of the system, receiving IR commands from hand-held remote controls and relaying the commands to the Main System Unit via a 4-conductor shielded cable. Generally, sensors are placed so that you can easily and naturally point your remote control directly at them. Sensors are available in wall-mount, ceiling-mount, surface-mount and table-top models.

Keypad (sold separately): The IntelliPad is a wall-mounted, programmable IR keypad system that provides a unique LED power status display and the convenience of true one-button remote control of complex audio/video systems.

IR Flashers (sold separately): IR Flashers re-transmit the infrared signals from the IR Main System Unit to your A/V components. Flashers are the "voice" of an IR extender system that "speaks" to your components.

Universal Compatibility: When used in a complete system, this IR sensor is compatible with virtually all brands of A/V equipment and remote controls using carrier frequencies of 38 kHz, 40 kHz, and 56 kHz.

Interference Resistance: The MS210 is resistant to CFL interference created by fluorescent lighting. This gives you more installation flexibility into areas with fluorescent lighting.

Plasma-proof Design: The sensor features a plasma-proof design that allows placement of the MS210 near plasma displays.

IR Receiving Range: You get 20' to 35' of remote control range, depending upon the strength of your handheld remote. The IR pickup angle is 60° off-axis (horizontal and vertical) at 20'.

Bi-colored LED: The LED glows green when the system is on and flashes blue to confirm reception of IR commands.

Mounting: The MS210 is designed to surface-mount almost anywhere. Convenient mounting locations for the MS210 include: on the front panel of a television set, on the front surface of a wall, a cabinet, an appliance, or a speaker grille.

Note: As with any type of IR sensor, avoid locating the MS210 where it will be exposed to direct sunlight. It should not be installed near any potential sources of electrical or optical noise, such as light dimmers, low-voltage lights, and neon lights.

Wiring: The MS210 connects to the Niles infrared main systems unit (or IRH610 sensor expansion hub) with an individual "home run" of Category 5 ("Cat 5") cable. When running wires inside walls, most states and municipalities usually require the wire to have a specific "CL" fire rating. Please consult your local building inspection department for requirements in your area.
