Home >> Xantech >> Xantech 480-85 Dinky Link LCD/CFL Friendly Infra-Red Receivers


  • CFL and LCD TV Friendly version, with adjustable IR frequency, and mini 3-conductor 7 ft. ribbon cable and separate screw terminal block (supplied). Terminates in bare wires
Miniature IR receiver that features surface mount technology. The 480 Dinky Link was originally developed in response to requests from many of Xantech's custom installers for a small, inconspicuous receiver. It was designed for placement in very tiny spaces. One example is between the grille and baffle board of an in-wall speaker. The high sensitivity of this receiver gives you the ability to place the 480 behind a grille and still receive the IR commands up to 20 feet away. If longer range is necessary, you must drill a 3/8-inch hole in the grille.

You would normally use these products to control devices that are out of sight (in a cupboard for instance), for hardwiring infra-red distribution around the house, or for sending commands back to a home controller, like HomeVision.

FAQ:
Q. I can't make this work with Sky+ or SkyHD
A. The receiver has 2 infra-red inputs that pickup different frequencies. To make this work with Sky you need to cover up the first IR window with some good insulation tape, so no IR light can get in. Like this:
