The IN608 from Presentation Switchers is a Modular Input Board with HDBaseT Input Connector for the PS600 Series Modular Enclosure Presentation Switchers.This board is used to connect audio-visual source devices using the HDBaseT connector, communications, and power standards.
HDBaseT devices may be connected to the IN608 using CAT5e/CAT6 cables up to 492 feet away. Power over Ethernet (PoE) may be used to power the HDBaseT device with support for up to 30W of power. The IN608 conforms to the HDBaseT standards requirement to support a wide variety of HDBaseT devices even if they are not produced by Presentation Switchers.
Installation to PSxx Enclosures
Installation of the IN608 is quick and painless. The IN607 is NOT a hot swappable card. Remove power to the PS600 Enclosure first. To install the card, simply remove the single mounting screw that holds the IN600 Future Expansion Plate or other card where you plan to install the IN608. After removing the old plate, insert the new IN608 assembly. With proper alignment less than 1 foot pound of pressure is required to insert the card. Replace the screw to ensure the card is securely mounted in the chassis. Power the system. The system automatically recognizes the new board. No further activity is required. However, in some cases, it may be necessary to adjust the audio input trim to a nominal input level. See the Installation Manual for more details regarding audio input adjustments.
When connecting an IN608 to a HDBaseT device requiring power (e.g. a PD device), there is nothing required for the user to do. The IN608 will automatically begin powering the HDBaseT device and begin receive the audio and video signal.
