Yes, we can extend the IR sensor so it comes outside of the LCD monitor. Then you can put it in a cabinet or remote location.
Please contact our Inside Sales Coordinator and indicate on your purchase order the request to move this IR eye.
We have done this for a major OEM customer several times. This customer usually prefers to supply their own wire, like a 26 gauge spec, and also provided to their own length.
Typically the length that our customers ask us to extend the IR eye is no longer than 5 feet.
You can also split the remote eye to have two remote eyes in the cabin. If you do this, ensure that they are on the same polarity.
