If the transmitter is to be wall-mounted,
allow sufficient clearance for the curved
antenna face to swivel freely in all directions.
Repeat steps 2 through 5 for the receiver.
For best results, position the wireless extenders
so they are on the same horizontal plane.
Using the signal strength LEDs for
guidance, swivel the curved face of transmitter
antenna head toward the directional antenna on
the receiver.

Extended Range Operation
The HGA51G-DIR30 directional antenna is
an accessory for Emerge wireless extenders,
which are factory-equipped with omni-
directional antennas. Directional antennas
provide extended range operation by focusing
the energy of radio waves into an intensified
directional beam. Extended distance operation
requires installation of at least one directional
antenna onto a transmitter and one onto a
receiver. Installation of two antennas per unit
will guard against signal blockage but will not
increase transmission distance.
If your wireless extenders are not already
properly placed and connected to audio, video,
power and control sources, then please refer
the appropriate product documentation before
proceeding with the instructions provided in
this document.
Facing the product, remove the omni-
directional antenna from the left-hand antenna
jack on both the transmitter and receiver.
The antennas loosen from the antenna jack
by turning the knurled fastener in a counter-
clockwise manner.
Select either directional antenna and
extend the assembly such that its connector
arm and antenna shaft are parallel with each other at
the knuckle joint.
Engage the center socket of the antenna
connector arm onto the center pin of the transmitter
antenna jack. Turn the knurled fastener clockwise
until finger tight to secure the antenna.
If the transmitter is to be shelf or rack mounted,
raise the antenna head such that the antenna
shaft is pointed upward and perpendicular to the
connector arm at the knuckle joint. This motion
requires proper alignment of the knuckle joint,
which can be accomplished by rotating the antenna
shaft. Once vertical, swivel the curved antenna face
toward the intended receiver.
