IR Extender

Post by Alan Hosler » Wed Mar 27, 2002 5:36 pm

I am interested in a circuit for a wired (not RF) IR extender so I can locate the remote control and the controlled device in different rooms.

Alan:
It seems like your kicker was ....wired not RF.
Seems like everything offered is RF. The last thing in your category I remembered was the first generation of wascally wabbits (RABBITS)
back in the '90s. I looked thru my circuit archives references and if you want to homebrew it why don't you checkout:
www.mitedu.freeserve.co.uk/Circuits/Interface/irext.htm
or for an upgrade:
www.electronic-projects.net/projects/re ... cx1cct.gif
I,personally,would tend to the interfacing in of the little enclosed 3 term self contained / shielded infrared modules in place of the simple
IR detector diode... they are available from RS.
Hope this might fulfill your needs.<p>73's de Edd
