Xantech WL85
LCD/CFL J Box Receiver


Call for price! Not available online.

The WL85 is designed to reject interference from Plasma, LCD, LED displays and Compact Flourescent Lamps (CFL) from entering the IR signal line. This IR receiver mounts easily into a single gang, electrical j-box, is supplied with mounting screws, and comes with a decorator-style insert, allowing the installer to use a decorator-style wall cover plate. This provides an integrated look for control of A/V equipment behind closed doors or any IR Repeater System that is in close proximity to light sources described above.
