OUR PART # IR2-RANE
The Rane IR2R and IR2S are collectively known as an IR2. They work in pairs as an accessory to Rane HAL products. The IR2S sends infrared, the IR2R receives it. They work as a pair to provide an automatic way to sense the position of a movable wall or door. Mounting brackets and screws are included.
A single CAT 5e cable for each door connects the IR2 pair to a dedicated IR Remote port on the rear of a HAL2 or a DR4. The DR4 connects to any HAL, up to 1,000 feet (305 meters) away. Thus, the IR2 can be 2,000 feet away from a
When mounted on opposite sides of the door, and wired correctly, green indicators on the IR2R and IR2S are always lit. Only when the door is open and the IR2R is receiving infrared from the sender does the IR2R's red indicator light. Depending on the IR2 mounting height and your eyeglass prescription, these red indicators can usually be viewed from the floor. Note that the HAL need not have a configuration loaded in it for the above functionality to be observed. A powered HAL2 or DR4 is sufficient.
For an IR2 remote to control audio, the IR2 requires a connection to a HAL2, or to a DR4 connected to any HAL. In either case, the HAL must be loaded with a suitable configuration. When doors or movable partitions are opened or closed the IR2 automatically detects this, and the audio system reconfigures itself appropriately and automatically.
Distinguishing the IR2R from the IR2S: An IR2R has two LED indicators while an IR2S has one LED indicator and a sensitivity adjustment. Both the send and receive IR parts have red and black wires but the receiver also has green and white wires. The IR2 is shipped preset for a range of up to 10 feet (3 meters) but may be adjusted for operation of up to 65 feet (19.8 meters). The HAL does not automatically check IR2 wiring errors.
