The VOPEX® Industrial VGA Video Splitter/Extender simultaneously broadcasts high-resolution video from one computer to 4, 8, or 16 remote monitors located up to 600 feet (183 meters) away using CAT5/5e/6 cable with M12 connectors. The robust M12 connector system is ideal for rail transportation and harsh industrial environments where reliable connections are required.


VGA video splitter/extender system has two components: the VOPEX-M12V-x VGA broadcast unit, which connects to the host computer and also supplies video to a local monitor, and an XTENDEX® ST-M12V-R-600 remote unit for each remote monitor. The units are interconnected by CAT5/5e/6 cable terminated with M12 connectors.

  • "We mainly bought from NTI because of your wiliness to adapt your existing product with our M12 requirements. The ease of which NTI adapted and changed their existing product was impressive and greatly appreciated!

    We can now use your VOPEX-M12V-4 and XTENDEX ST-M12V-R-600 in our future projects. (Before there was no chance of using your products.) For the current project, we'll be using them in 2 halves of a light rail train. First half gets 2 LCD displays with second half getting 2 other LCD's all showing the same image from one controller. By using your splitter/extenders, we will be saving considerable amounts of money by only having to use 1 vs 4 controllers to run these 4 LCD displays."
