Cable Dimensions

The CLS-AOCH/60-XX / CP-AOCH/60-XX includes four optical fibers and six AWG 28 wires with compact size HDMI connectors. On the source side, the micro HDMI connector enables smooth pulling of the cable. The SOURCE end connects to the source (for example, a DVD, Blu-ray or game console box) and the DISPLAY end to the acceptor (for example, a projector, an LCD display or a tablet device), see Figure 2 (note that SOURCE appears here as an example).KRAMER-CLS-AOCH-60-XX Audio and Video Cable Assembly-fig-2

CLS-AOCH/60-XX / CP-AOCH/60-XX Plug and Play Installation

Before installing the cable, make sure that you have an HDMI graphic card or devices with an HDMI port (for example, a PC, laptop, DVD/Blue-ray player or any other video/audio signal source device).

Optical fiber cable is not robust physically compared to conventional copper cable materials. Even though this cable is designed to be resistant to artificial strengths on the cable, CLS-AOCH/60-XX / CP-AOCH/60-XX can be damaged if it is excessively pinched, twisted or kinked when being installed and after being installed. Take care not to bend or twist the cable tightly.
When CLS-AOCH/60-XX / CP-AOCH/60-XX is installed into the conduit, the fiber pulling strength and the bending radius are the key conditions to safe installation of the cable.

Do not disassemble or modify the products, especially the HDMI connector head parts. To install the


  1. Unpack the cable from the package with care and remove the cable tie.
  2. Place the micro-HDMI (Type D) connector inside the Pulling Tool and close its cover.
    Note that you can pull the cable either from the display side or the source side (as shown in Figure 3), but you have to make sure that the cable polarity is correct (tagged Source if pulling the source side or Display if pulling the display side).
  3. Attach the pulling cable to the Pulling Tool.KRAMER-CLS-AOCH-60-XX Audio and Video Cable Assembly-fig-3
  4. Carefully install the cable (for example, in the wall or conduit or under the floor).
  5. Connect the:
    • SOURCE HDMI adaptor to the micro-HDMI connector SOURCE end of the cable.
    • DISPLAY HDMI adaptor to the micro-HDMI connector DISPLAY end of the cable.
      HDMI adapters in this box are not interchangeable!
      You must connect the adapter marked SOURCE to the SOURCE connector head of the cable and the adapter marked DISPLAY to the DISPLAY connector head of the cable .
      Connecting an adapter to the wrong end of the cable could cause damage to the cable, adapter, and connected AV equipment.
  6. Secure the connection on each side using the supplied locking screws.
  7. Plug the SOURCE connector head of the cable into the source devices. Do not plug the SOURCE connector to the display device.
  8. Plug the DISPLAY connector head of the cable into the display devices. Do not plug the DISPLAY connector to the source device.
  9. Switch on the power of the source and display devices.
  10. If required, connect an external power source via the micro-USB connector on the DISPLAY side.


If you have encountered a problem, check that:

  • The source and display devices are both switched on
  • Both HDMI connector heads are fully plugged into the devices
  • The cable or its jacket is not physically damaged
  • The cable is not bent or kinked

Note that it is important to connect the cable correctly as marked on the end of each connector: SOURCE to the source side and DISPLAY to the acceptor side.
