IRTrans WLAN Module

IRTrans Ethernet Module

IRTrans USB Module

Last Update: 27.09.2014

IR Trans transforms your PC into a programmable remote control: It learns the codes of your remote control, stores them in a database and sends them controlled by your applications.
Furthermore you can control your PC with almost any remote control.

Use the links above to get an overview of the diverse usage scenarios!

The IRTrans system undergoes a constant further development and extension.
Worldwide there are already more than 15,000 devices in use.


New: New IRTrans manuals in the download section

New: IRConfig configuration tool for LINUX and Mac in the download section

With the IRConfig tool all settings of the IRTrans devices can also be configured on Mac OS/X . This includes the initial configuration of a WiFi device via the USB port. The IRConfig tool can also be used on LINUX systems.

New: LAN Controller Multistream 16- 16 independent IR Outputs in a 19" 1 RU Case


The IRTrans LAN Controller Multistream 16 consists of 16 indepdendent IRTrans devices that are controlled by a common LAN Interface. That means all IR outputs can send different IR Codes at the same time. That way the IR Codes can be sent at the same time and in rapid succession. It takes only 65ms to send 16 different IR Codes of typical length to all 16 outputs. That is a big advantage if a larger number of IR Codes need to be sent to different devices of different make and model (e.g. for STB Testing or cable network monitoring). The 100MBit LAN Interface assures that all codes are processed by the device very fast.
This IRTrans device does not contain an IR receiver. To learn IR Codes an USB Learning device is available.
The 16 IR Outputs can be driven with 3 different output power levels. This assures precise control even of critical devices.

Of course the software and APIs have been extended so that these functions can all be used. Existing programs only need little changes to use the extended features of this device.

New: IRTrans WiFi - the first IRTrans device featuring a WLAN Interface


Today we are proud to present the first IRTrans device featuring a WLAN Interface. The device works the same way as the well-known IRTrans Ethernet devices but has got an IEEE 802.11bgn WLAN Interface. The size is the same as the other standard IRTrans devices (72x50x19mm) and the antenna is fully integrated.
The initial configuration is done via the USB interface of the device. This USB interface can also be used later on - even at the same time as the WLAN connectivity.
All software interfaces and APIs are exactly the same as for the Ethernet devices. That means any software written for IRTrans Ethernet devices will also work with the WLAN devices. Only the web configuration interface has been replaced by an extended setup tool as initial configuration would not be possible before the WLAN setup has been done. Sending of IR Codes via the http interface (for IRDB Devices) is, of course, supported.
The optional flash IR Database is available and works the same way as for Ethernet Devices. Of course IR Translation is also supported by using the internal Flash memory. Of course the WLAN devices also support IR Relaying. Even mixed configurations with LAN and WLAN devices are possible.
As all newer Ethernet devices the WLAN device also has connectors for external IR Transmitters and IR Receivers.
Optionally available are a 2nd IR Output (independently controllable) and a bidirectional RS232 port.

New: IRTrans LAN I/O - compact devices with multiple I/O options


This IRTrans LAN I/O is a compact device that offers lots of different ports: 2 IR Outputs (optionally 4), a bidirectional RS232 port, and 2 analogue inputs and 2 relay outputs are available. The device has got 128K internal flash memory for IR codes and 128K flash memory for HTML pages. An optional PoE module (internal) allows to power the device via the network cable. The LAN I/O has got three internal IR receiver (38kHz, 455kHz and Universal learning) and a connector for an external IR receiver.The receivers can be selected via software.

New: RS232 output for almost all IRTrans devices!

An active RS232 cable allows to control A/V equipment with an RS232 input. RS232 output is done via sending IR codes that have been defined as RS232 control strings. The definition of control strings is done with the same application that is used to learn IR Codes. It is also possible via Flash IR Database and IR Translation.

This cables can be used together with the following IRTrans devices:

- IRTrans USB (starting with Version 3.6), Connected to the serial bus
- IRTrans RS232 (starting with Version 3.6), Connected to the serial bus
- IRTrans LAN (starting with Version 2.2, also RS232 input possible), Connected the IR Output or IR Input
- IRTrans PoE (all Versions), Connected the IR Output
- IRTrans LAN Controller (all Versions), Connected to the serial bus
- IRTrans Translator (all Versions), Connected to the serial bus
- IRTrans Mediacontroller (all Versions), Connected to the serial bus

You can find the cables in the shop section of our website on the page of each device that supports RS232 output.

NEW: Universal Code Learning IR Receiver available:
Learns and measures Carrier Frequencies from 10-455kHz.
Details regarding the receivers can be found here.

Infrared <–> IP Gateway: All Ethernet based IRTrans Modules can be used as an IR <–> IP Gateway. This allows to transfer IR Commands via all kinds of IP based networks. Of course that can be done without any additional systems or software.
