IR Learner™ is a free software utility for capturing infrared codes from a handheld IR remote to create custom drivers for operating IR-controlled devices using IP Link® and GlobalViewer®. IR Learner software is a Windows-based application designed for use with Extron products that feature a built-in IR capture port, such as the IPCP 505, IPL 250, IPL T SFI244, System 5 IP, MLC 104 IP Plus, and MLC 226 IP.

IR Learner software makes it easy to establish communication with Extron IR learning hardware devices using either a TCP/IP or RS-232 connection. The graphical user interface allows users to define a new device driver by specifying device type, manufacturer, model, and version as appropriate in a driver document.


In addition to creating new drivers, IR Learner software can be used to modify an existing driver. IR Learner makes it easy to add to the function list for a particular device type and to remove functions previously assigned to a device driver. Once a driver has been created or modified, it can be saved to the PC and uploaded to any IP Link-enabled device on the network. IR Learner is offered to dealers at no cost and can be downloaded from the Extron website.
