TP-121xl/TP-122xl - Getting Started
2.3 About the Power Connect™ Feature
The Power Connect™ feature here means that only one unit in a system, the
transmitter or receiver, needs to be connected to a power source when the
devices are within 60m (197ft) of each other. The Power Connect™ feature
applies as long as the cable can carry power and the distance does not exceed
60m on standard TP cable. (Heavier gauge cable may be used to extend the
Power Connect™ range.)
2.4 Shielded Twisted Pair/Unshielded Twisted Pair
We recommend that you use Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) cable, and stress that
the compliance to electromagnetic interference was tested using STP cable.
There are different levels of STP cable available, and we advise you to use the
best quality STP cable that you can afford. Our non-skew-free cable, Kramer
BC-STP is intended for analog signals where skewing is not an issue.
In cases where there is skewing, our Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) skew-free
cable, Kramer BC-XTP, may be advantageous, and UTP cable might also be
preferable for long range applications. In any event when using UTP cable, it is
advisable to ensure that the cable is installed far away from electric cables, motors
and so on, which are prone to create electrical interference.
2.5 Recycling Kramer Products
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive 2002/96/EC
aims to reduce the amount of WEEE sent for disposal to landfill or incineration by
requiring it to be collected and recycled. To comply with the WEEE Directive,
Kramer Electronics has made arrangements with the European Advanced
Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover any costs of treatment, recycling and
recovery of waste Kramer Electronics branded equipment on arrival at the EARN
facility. For details of Kramer’s recycling arrangements in your particular country
