RTI shipping custom control kit
RTI has announced the launch of its first custom control kit that integrates Pro Control systems into the RTI control platform.
Bundling the home automation specialist’s XP-3 control processor, Pro Control's Pro24.z remote, and an unlimited RTiPanel license in one package, the C2K1 starter kit is designed to offer an easy introduction to home control and the process of making upgrades.
"The C2K1 marks the first time that Pro Control solutions can be programmed within our Integration Designer APEX software," commented Mike Everett, vice president of global sales at RTI.
At the kit’s core is RTI's XP-3 processor incorporating a built-in ZigBee RF transceiver to support bi-directional communications with compatible RTI and Pro Control remote controls. In addition to control options — including IR, RS-232 and relays — the XP-3 utilises two-way drivers that provide users with instant feedback from third-party devices and has an astronomical clock for time-based events.
Using the manufacturer’s RTiPanel app for Apple and Android devices, any number of users can now control installed electronic systems via smartphones and tablets.
The C2K1's Pro Control Pro24.z remote control features a high-resolution 2.4-in TFT LCD touch-screen display, programmable five-way joystick, and backlit hard buttons for operation in all conditions.
