DVI Over 1 Cat6 with Galvanic Isolator


The EXT-DVI-1CAT6-GI from Gefen is a DVI over 1 CAT6 with Galvanic Isolator that extends a DVI source up to 100 feet (30 meters) using a single CAT-5e cable, and up to 132 feet (40 meters) over a single CAT-6A cable. Resolutions up to 1080p Full HD and 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) are supported. This HDCP-compliant extender is specifically designed for use in mission-critical applications where galvanic isolation up to 5kV and electrical decoupling between the DVI source and the downstream equipment is required to ensure safety. It is compliant with the 3rd Edition of medical equipment safety and EMC standards EN60601-1 and EN60601-1-2. Typical applications include medical imaging systems where certain components of the system (such as endoscopy or laparoscopy cameras) come in direct contact with the patient and the operator.
