Our BlastIR Pro kits come with all the cables you need to install them, but there are lots of cases where you might need some extra distance, or you might want to add an additional receiver. We'll go through the different options.
The simplest case is just getting a 3.5 mm extension cable. It is a clean and easy way to move the IR target (or emitters) away from the connecting block.
Just run the cable (make sure the female end of the extension goes to the IR Receiver) and plug it all in. It's that easy.
We have IR extension cables in lengths ranging from 6 to 75 feet.
You can also make your own 3.5mm extension cable using our 3.5mm phoenix-style terminal block kits
A common solution is to use Cat5 or Cat6 cable for the wiring. But you can really use just about any wire as long as you have three conductors.
There are lots of options so you can set up your equipment and make sure that there is something that will work for you. Of course, some solutions are better suited for some situations. To learn more, you can check out our BlastIR Classic wiring options, or the new BlastIR Wireless.
