There are five specific items for which you are requesting classification. Part number 966109-0000 is an infrared receiver for an infrared remote control. The receiver connects to a PC through a standard COM port and detects waves of infrared light which are transmitted by the remote. Part number 966108-0000 consists of a set containing an infrared receiver, and infrared remote control, and two batteries. Part number 811176-00M is a cordless computer mouse which performs the same functions as a traditional mouse, but which operates on high-end radio frequency. Part number 811177-00M is the radio receiver for the cordless mouse which is connected to the PC through the mouse port. It operates on radio frequency waves. Part number 952110-0000 consists of a set containing the cordless mouse, the radio receiver, and two batteries.
