GC-IRL IR Learner
Global Caché’s GC-IRL IR Learner is a must-have tool for every dealer, installer, and home automation enthusiast.
The compact GC-IRL is used with a PC to learn the full spectrum, 30KHz to 500KHz, of IR codes that control infrared
driven equipment. When used in conjunction with the free GC-IRL Utility, the learned code is displayed, converted
into other formats, and automatically copied into the Windows clipboard. These learned codes can then be pasted
into any Windows application to facilitate quick database and/or spreadsheet creation and updating. The stored
codes can be used to control and automate any device that accepts infrared control signals, from any networked
computer, and over the Internet. The GC-IRL power is supplied by the RTS line of the serial port and requires no
external power supply.

GC-IRE IR Extender

The Global Caché GC-IRE IR Extender extends infrared capability by converting IR signals to digital data, which
can then be read from any PC or RS232 serial port. The GC-IRE is designed for use with various IR input devices
to capture IR commands that can be recorded, played back, and used to initiate actions across a network. For the
first time, an IR device, such as a remote control, can be used as an input device for equipment control throughout
the home. For instance, by pressing a button on your bedroom remote you can adjust lighting, set your home’s
temperature, and lower shades. The GC-IRE is the first IR extender able to support the full IR frequency spectrum
from 30KHz to 500KHz. The GC-IRE is compatible with the following IR receivers and input devices:

   GC-RG1 is an IR receiver able to capture IR frequencies from 30KHz to 72KHz
   GC-CXG connects a Xantech IR environment directly to the GC-IRE. An IR output from a Xantech distribution block
    is used as the GC-IRE input
   GC-CGX connects a Global Caché IR output (GC-100 or iTach) to a Xantech distribution box IR input


GC-RG1 General IR Receiver

The GC-RG1 is an IR receiver able to capture IR frequencies from 30KHz to 72KHz. The GC-RG1 is intended for use
with the GC-IRE to capture and digitize IR signals. The GC-RG1 employs a 6ft 3.5mm cable for easy installation and
connection to the GC-IRE. No power supply is needed when used with the GC-IRE.



GC-BL2 IR Blaster

The GC-BL2 is designed for use with the Global Caché GC-100 Network Adapters to transmit IR signals across a room
up to 40 feet. No power supply or connecting block is required for use. With an IR modulation frequency range
of 30 – 500 kHz, and transmitting up 40 feet, the GC-BL2 is the obvious solution to any IR signal strength problem.
The GC-BL2 employs a standard 3.5mm stereo plug and 6ft cable for easy connection and installation for use with
the GC-100 Network Adapter.




GC-CGX IR Converter Cable, GC-100 to Xantech
The GC-CGX is used to connect a Global Caché IR output (GC-100 or iTach) to a Xantech IR input. Global Caché IR
outputs are converted to meet the IR input requirements for a Xantech IR distribution environment. IR signals from
30KHz to 72KHz can now be sent through an existing Xantech IR installation directly from one of our units.
The GC-CGX is optically isolated to ensure circuit isolation and protection.



GC-CXG IR Converter Cable, Xantech to GC-IRE
The GC-CXG is used to connect a Xantech IR output (any IR emitter port) to the GC-IRE. Xantech IR outputs are
converted to meet the IR input requirements for GC-IRE. IR signals received by Xantech IR products can now be
digitized by the GC-IRE for networked installations. The GC-CXG is optically isolated to ensure circuit isolation
and protection.

GC-SV1 Video Out Sensor

The GC-SV1 monitors the on-and-off status of video equipment by detecting the presence of a composite video signal.
It is ideally suited for determining the power state of DVD players and VCRs. The device can be plugged directly into
the Global Caché GC-100 Network Adapter, whichconnects the sensor to the network. Additionally, the GC-SV1 will work
with other controllers that provide 5V power and accept digital logic (TTL) input. The GC-SV1 connector is a standard
3.5mm stereo jack. This sensor can be used with iTach IR connectors in “Sensor” mode, but due to a design alteration
must be connected to the unit with an audio crossover cable. The wires that need to be swapped are the tip and the ring.



GC-SP1 AC/DC Voltage Sensor

The GC-SP1 monitors the on-and-off status of electronic components by detecting an AC or DC voltage greater than ± 2V.
Voltages up to ± 24V can be connected to the GC-SP1 to determine the powered state of equipment, power strips
(via a wall adapter), or a “ring” condition on a telephone circuit. The GC-SP1 is optically isolated and clamped by a
transient voltage suppressor to ensure circuit isolation and protection. The device can be plugged directly into the
Global Caché GC-100 Network Adapter, which connects the sensor to the network. Additionally, the GC-SP1
will work with other controllers that provide 5V power and accept digital logic (TTL) input. The GC-SP1 connector is a
standard 3.5mm stereo jack.This sensor can be used with iTach IR connectors in “Sensor” mode, but due to a design
alteration must be connected to the unit with an audio crossover cable. The wires that need to be swapped are the tip
and the ring.



GC-SC1 Contact Closure Sensor

The GC-SC1 detects the open-and-closed status of a pair of isolated contacts, such as a relay or switch. It is ideally
suited for detecting contact closure on drapery controllers, thermostats, security contacts, and door strikes. The GC-SC1
filters out false triggers associated with typical contact bounce. The device can be plugged directly into the Global
Caché GC-100 Network Adapter, which connects the sensor to the network. Additionally, the GC-SC1 will work with other
controllers that provide 5V power and accept digital logic (TTL) input. The GC-SC1 connector is a standard 3.5mm
stereo jack. This sensor can be used with iTach IR connectors in “Sensor” mode, but due to a design alteration must be
connected to the unit with an audio crossover cable. The wires that need to be swapped are the tip and the ring.
