Has anyone already tried to place the IR diodes away from the NUs ? With a 4wire cabele it didnt worked at all. Seperated TX and RX lines dindt helpt. With shielded cable it has sometimes sucessfull energizeses but not reliable. Cable length is about 40cm.
Could it work to put 3 parallel IR Receiver ICs direct to the processor ? Fail readings could be produced by too much signal strength for the decode IC by putting the phaser too near ?
I just have an older analogue Scope that by just putting it inbetween the Rx diodes and its voltage divider resistor I couldnt energise anymore.
I appreciate any ideas...

The IR receivers are not very good at handling interference. It is why the back pack sensors have a sort of amp circuit to run across to the front pack. I've successfully installed an extension, what I did was use a back pack circuit board and run the wires from that back to the network unit, tapping on to the appropriate locations on the PCB to tap in to.
