Single Stage Installation (C)
Setting up the VS132A / VS134A / VS138A is simply a matter of plugging in the cables. In a single stage installation, no additional video splitters are cascaded down from the first unit. Refer to the diagram as you follow the step by step directions below:
- Make sure that the computer and monitors you are using for the installation are all powered off.
- Plug the female end of a male-to-female VGA cable into the VS132A / VS134A / VS138A’s Video In port.
- Plug the male end of the VGA cable into the computer or source device’s video output port.
- Use 2/4/8 VGA cables to connect 2/4/8 displays to the VS132A / VS134A / VS138A’s Video Out ports.
Note: VGA cables do not come with the package. These must be purchased separately.
- Plug the power adapter (supplied with this package) into an AC source; then plug the power adapter cable into the splitter’s power jack.
- Power on all equipment.
To provide video displays for more monitors, additional units can be cascaded. Use a high-density HDB-15 male/female video extender cable to connect any available Video Out port on the higher level Video Splitter to the Video In port of the lower level video splitter.
You can cascade as many video splitters as there are ports available, and all three models can be mixed on the same chain. Theoretically, there is no limit to the number of splitters that can be cascaded, but the quality will deteriorate as you get further and further away from the video signal.
