Black Box USA AC555A VGA Extender Black Box USA AC642A VGA Display Balun Male
Place remote monitors and speakers up to 500 feet from your PC.

Send clear VGA signals or VGA and audio signals up to 500 feet. Each extender consists of a local unit and a remote unit, with the local unit duplicating the input signal for local use and transmiting the VGA signal to the remote unit. When the remote unit receives the VGA signal via an RJ-45 connector, it broadcasts the signal to two VGA outputs.


  • An equalization (gain) control on the remote unit enables you to fine-tune the picture.
  • Choose from VGA only or VGA plus audio.
  • With the AC556A version, both the local and the remote units support two monitors or two monitors with speakers.


  • Distance (Maximum) — 500 ft. (152.4 m)
  • Resolution Maximum — 1024 x 768
  • User Controls — (1) equalizer selector switch
  • Connectors — AC555A: Local unit: (1) HD15 M in, (1) RJ-45, (1) 5 VDC in, (2) HD15 F out; Remote unit: (1) RJ-45, (1) 5 VDC in, (2) HD15 F out; AC556A: Local unit: (1) HD15 M in, (1) RJ-45, (1) 5 VDC in, (1) stereo audio in, (2) HD15 F out, (2) stereo audio out; Remote unit: (1) RJ-45, (1) 5 VDC in, (2) HD15 F out, (2) stereo audio out
  • Indicators — On each local and remote unit: (1) Power, (1) Active
  • Power — External: Input: 120 VAC, 60 Hz;
  • Output: 5 VDC, 600 mA
  • Size — AC555A (each unit): 0.6"H x 3.3"W x 2.3"D (1.5 x 8.4 x 5.8 cm); AC556A (each unit): 0.6"H x 4.1"W x 2.3"D (1.5 x 10.4 x 5.8 cm)
  • Weight — Each unit: 0.4 lb. (0.2 kg)
  • Use CAT5 cable instead of VGA cable for your long video runs


    • Baluns support VGA resolutions of 640 x 480 (15 MHz) at distances of 450 feet (137.1 m). Higher resolutions are possible at shorter distances when transferring SVGA, XGA, and SXGA video.
    • Save conduit space by using existing UTP cables to distribute video, as well as keyboard/mouse signals, to classrooms or conference rooms.
    • Great for long source-to-display connections where using coax cables can be cumbersome and expensive.

    Source-to-display extensions without the need for VGA cabling. Putting a lot of distance between a PC video source and a display device can be expensive if you use standard VGA cable to connect the two. How about using lower-cost twisted-pair cable instead? With BLACK BOX® VGA Baluns, you can.

    These compact, nonpowered devices enable you to quickly set up VGA source-to-display runs at distances up to 450 feet (137.1 m).

    And because they plug into the PC and display devices directly, setting up and dismantling a video connection is easy. For this reason, they’re ideal for temporary cable patches in training or conference settings. For instance, use flexible copper cable instead of bulky VGA cable to project a laptop image onto a large plasma or CRT screen—and lose none of the original video resolution in the transfer!


    • Distance (Maximum) — Over STP CAT5 cable: VGA: 450 ft. (137.1 m) using 640 x 480 at 15 MHz; SVGA: 350 ft. (106.7 m) using 800 x 600 at 30 MHz; XGA: 250 ft. (76.2 m) using 1024 x 780 at 60 MHz; SXGA: 200 ft. (61 m) using 1280 x 1024 at 100 MHz
