Mini CATx VGA Extender Receiver with Video Equalization Adjustment, Standalone  

A compact, budget-friendly line-powered extender CATx VGA receiver for extending video as far as 500 feet (150 m).

VX-VGA520-RA

Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Highlights

  • Works with a compatible transmitter to extend VGA video up to 500 feet (150 m) over ordinary CAT5/5e/6 cable.
  • Eliminates the need for bulky VGA cables, allowing you to use UTP cabling already installed.
  • Requires only a single power supply unit. Can be powered conveniently from either end of the CATx link, locally or remotely.


  • Further Details

  • Features video equalization adjustment for optimizing image quality at maximum distances.
  • Enables you to extend VGA resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, including 1080p quality video.
  • Small form factor standalone unit for space-saving installation (wallplate receiver also available).

  • There's no need to use expensive, hard-to-terminate VGA cable for extending high-resolution video. The Mini CATx VGA Extender enables you to use ordinary CAT5/5e/6 UTP cable to link a video monitor or display up to 500 feet (150 m) from your PC or video source.

    The model featured here is the system's standalone receiver (a single-gang wallplate version is also available). It works with the separately available transmitter (available in a standalone or wallplate version) that converts a PC's VGA signal into a format suitable for transmission over a non-networked CATx link. The transmitter communicates point to point over the link with the receiver, which then converts the signal back to VGA for connection to your monitor, projector, or other display device.

    In the transmission, there's little or no degradation of video quality. Supporting VGA resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 (including 1080p video) at even the maximum distance of 500 feet (150 m), the Mini CATx VGA Extender system features video equalization at the receiver end. Using equalization and gain control, you can fine-tune video for a clear image on your remote display.

    Plus, the system has an EDID copy feature. With a push of a button on the transmitter unit, you can copy precise EDID info from the remotely attached monitor back to the source computer's video card. This way, you can ensure optimum video communications between the two, with the video card adapting automatically to the monitor's supported resolution, refresh rate, and timing characteristics across the CATx link.

    Even better, the Mini CATx VGA Extender system requires power only at one end—great for applications where you're short on outlets. Just order the separately available AC power supply (VX-VGA520-PS) and plug in at either end of the link, whichever side is most convenient for you.

    You can also transport the very compact standalone transmitter and receiver units and install them with ease. Their small form factor design makes them ideal for discreet installation in areas frequented by the public.

    NOTE: For multichannel distribution of VGA video over CAT5 or higher cable, see our Mini CAT5 Extender family (AC504A-WP, AC504A-WP-R, AC600A–AC603A, AC654A).
