Introduction

TPS-TX87 and RX87 twisted-pair HDBaseT™ extenders provide an extension of uncompressed 4K/UHD video with embedded audio for long distances over a single CATx cable. The extender offers uni-directional RS-232 and IR pass-through on the same CATx cable that carries the video signal. The TPS extenders support full HDCP and EDID compliance and work on all standard AV resolutions and also 120 Hz 3D signals. PoE 48V remote powering is available through the single CATx cable, but a local power supply can also be used.LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 16

Compatible Devices

TPS-87 extenders are compatible with all Lightware devices with TPS ports except the TPS-90 series.

Power Supply Options

TPS-87 extenders are compatible with IEEE 802.3af standard – Power over Ethernet (PoE) and can receive power over the TPS line.
LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 17The extenders are not compatible with TPS-95 extenders from a remote power point of view. TPS-95 extenders have a different remote power feature, which is not PoE compatible. Please always check the devices before connecting them to each other. If the remote power feature is disabled on the TPS-95 extender, it can be connected to a TPS-87 device.
The extenders can be powered:

  • Locally with the supplied 12V DC adaptor or Lightware’s rack-mountable PSU,
  • Remotely by a PoE-compatible Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) device, like Lightware’s power injector (TPS-PI-1P1) or a PoE-compatible matrix or matrix board.

If both supplying modes are available (local and remote), the remote power supply will be used.
LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 18Do not connect any device to the TPS connector unless you are sure they are compatible! Connecting incompatible devices with similar connectors may cause harm to the devices.
LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 19AWG 26 cables are not recommended with remote powering (reduce cable distances).

Connecting Steps

The layout below means the transmitter is powered locally by the power injector and they are placed close to each other. The receiver is powered remotely via the TPS cable (PoE).LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 20

CATx Connect the TPS output port of the TX to the TPS port of the power injector by a CATx cable.
CATx Connect the TPS input port of the RX to the TPS+PoE port of the power injector by a CATx cable.
DC-DC Connect a DC-DC cable between the transmitter and the power injector.
HDMI Connect a source to the HDMI (DVI-D) input port of the transmitter.
IR Connect an IR emitter unit to the IR output port of the transmitter.
RS-232 Connect a controller device to the local RS-232 port of the transmitter. Make sure the RS-232 switch is in the Normal position.
HDMI Connect a sink device to the HDMI (DVI-D) output port of the receiver.
RS-232 Connect a serial cable between the sink device and the RS-232 port of the receiver.
IR Connect an IR detector unit to the IR input port of the receiver.
Power First, connect the power adaptor to the DC input of the power injector, then secondly to the AC Dower socket.

Locking DC Plug

The device has a locking DC connector to establish a robust and safe power connection when a local PSU is used.
Twist 90° clockwise to lock.LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 21

Mounting Options

Lightware offers three types of mounting accessories to fix the extenders:
Rack Shelf
1U high rack shelf provides mounting holes for the fastening of up to four extenders.LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 22

Mounting Steps:
LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 23 Always use the fixing screws that are supplied with the mounting accessory. If you insert screws longer than 6 mm, the device can be damaged.

  1. Unplug all the cables connected to the device(s).
  2. Turn the device(s) upside down.
  3. Put the shelf upside down on the device(s). Position it to get the mounting holes aligned.
  4. Fasten the device on the shelf with the provided screws.
  5. Fix the shelf to the desired place (screws are not supplied).

Installation of the Extender With a Matrix

  1. Power off all devices (installing with powered devices may harm them).
  2. Check the RS-232 switch(es) on the extender(s); they must be in the Normal position for RS-232 pass-through function.
  3. The state of the TPS link mode switch makes no difference on the extender because the connected board forces the extender to use the settings of the matrix.
  4. Check the PoE settings of the matrix or the matrix board (with the LDC software); each port can be set for remote powering separately.
  5. Pair the extender(s) and the matrix board(s) with CATx cable(s). The transmitters’ TPS OUT with the input boards’ TPS IN and the receivers’ TPS IN with the output boards’ TPS OUT.
  6. Connect the video source(s), sink(s), and the desired accessory device(s) to the matrix (MX-TPS boards don’t support the IR pass-through).
  7. Connect the video source(s), sink(s), and the desired accessory device(s) to the extenders.
  8. To supply the extender(s) with a remote power supply, connect the necessary power adaptor to the given matrix board.
  9. To supply the extenders locally, connect the supplied adaptor (12V 2A DC).
  10. Connect the power cord of the matrix to the outlet and switch on the matrix.
  11. Supply the other connected units.

Bi-directional Pass-through Data Lines

The direction of the video extension is fixed from TX towards RX, but the pass-through data lines are bi-directional*. It means the RS-232 and IR source and sink devices can be connected either to the TX or to the RX, and the signal is transmitted to the other extender.LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 27

  • In fact, IR transmission is uni-directional, but the extender has two IR channels in different directions.

RS-232

Third-party devices with standard RS-232 ports are supported, as the extenders work in „passthrough” mode. TX and RX provide a 3-pole Phoenix connector. The RS-232 options – the baud rate and the parity bits – are set on the third-party devices and they can be anything. The extenders support any kind of serial setting.
LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 28Please find the RS-232 device type in its user guide; the extenders work as DCE devices

RS-232 Switch Modes

LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 29

Infrared (IR)
One emitter and one detector are enough for remote controlling one IR sink device. If there is an IR sink device to be controlled next to the TX and the other one is next to the RX, two emitter-detector pairs are needed.
The IR emitter and the detector have standard 3.5 mm TRS (jack) connectors. The emitter’s plug has two poles (mono) and the detector’s plug has three poles (stereo).
LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 30 The second emitter and detector pair can be ordered from Lightware separately.

IR Output Mode Switch

The IR output signal modulation can be selected by the front panel switch as follows:

1 2 3LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 31Detector — 3-pole-TRS 1 2-3LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 32Emitter — 2-pole-TS
1 Tip Signal (active low) 1 Tip +5V
2 Ring GND 2 Ring Signal (active low)
3 Sleeve +5V 3 Sleeve
  • Emitter: the 38 kHz modulation is switched on. In this case, an IR emitter can be connected to the IR output port.
  • Wired: the 38 kHz modulation is switched off. This option allows the connection of a cable between the IR output of the extender and the IR input port of the device desired to be remotely controlled.

TPS Link Modes

The TPS working mode between the transmitter and the receiver parties is determined by the mode set in them. Both parties influence the setting that determines the final TPS transmission mode. The following TPS modes are defined:

  • Long reach (LR): Longer CATx cable length, less bandwidth (limited resolution). The LPPF mode is not available in the LR TPS link mode.
  • HDBaseT™ (HDBT): more bandwidth (higher resolutions), shorter CATx cable length. If no video is present, the units change to LPPF mode automatically.
  • Low Power Partial Functionality (LPPF): Only RS-232 and IR are extended.

Toggling Between TPS Link Modes
The toggle switch on the extenders can be used to toggle between the LR and Auto TPS modes. If both units have an Auto state and there is a valid video signal on the transmitter, the common mode will be HDBT. If the video signal disappears, devices go into LPPF mode.LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 33TPS mode between an extender and a port of a matrix board
If an extender and a TPS matrix board are paired, the board forces the extender to use the settings of the matrix. The extender’s TPS mode switch has no effect.
LIGHTWARE HDMI-TPS-TX87 TPS Extender for Single CATx Cable with POE User Guide  & troubleshooting 34 Always use the Auto mode with third-party devices!
