CC-IRCIR Emitter Overview

The IR Emitter adheres directly to the IR control window of your equipment by using clear two-sidedtape to securely adhere the opaque shield. This “standard configuration” allows you to control your equipment either from either IR emitters or ahand-heldremote control.

The two black adhesive-backedwindow shields (Figure 3) are included within each emitter package and allow for alternate configurations. With this shield (surrounding the internal emitter), you can restrict IR reception through the device’s control window by blocking any interference or IR signals produced by sources other than the internal emitter. Without this shield, any incoming IR signal can pass through to the IR control window and overlap signals sent via the emitter (Figure 1).

Note: Each CC-IRCpackage is shipped with four sealed alcohol pads which can be used to clean any adhesive residue left from a previous installation of the window shield on the surface of a device’s IR control window.

Pass-ThroughConfigurations

This method allows IR signals generated from hand-heldremotes to easily pass through the opaque red shell/cover. The internal IR LED can be oriented to either face towards or away from the shell (Figure 1), depending on its output configuration. Use thelow-outputconfiguration when device is being saturated by an IR signal. Use thehigh-outputconfiguration when the device isn’t receiving enough of an IR signal and requires more strength. The side with the round “bump” is thehigh-output

side.

Removing the Factory-InstalledShell

The factory-installedshell is easily removed by carefully separating the two halves with asharp-edgedtool, such as anX-Acto™knife.

The IR LED can then be reversed or removed

when the shell is Figure 2 separated. Once the IR emitter and/or shield

installations have been completed, the housing can be re-assembledby pressing the two halves firmly together.

Shielded Configuration

Use this configuration to prevent interference from fluorescent lights or other IR sources. The metallic shield prohibits passage of external IR signals and ensures proper IR signals will be received from the emitter.

1.Remove the IR LED from the factory-installedshell (Figure 2).

2.Test fit the location and size of the IR shield (Figure 3) on the target device. If necessary, use scissors to trim the shield to fit the opening of the IR window.

3.Remove the adhesive backing from the IR shield and carefully place the IR LED into the recessed area using the correct orientation (Figure 1). Make sure the wires attached to the IR LED are not shorted together.

4.Flip the shield-emittercombo back over and begin to carefully position the shield over the IR control window so that it covers the entire surface (Figure 4). This keeps any other signal from coming through.

5.Press firmly on the shield surface to activate the pressure-sensitiveadhesive.
