Meyer Sound has announced Compass RMS, a new hardware and software solution that streamlines the realtime monitoring of Meyer Sound self-powered loudspeaker systems. The Compass RMS system features the RMServer, hardware that communicates loudspeaker performance data over Ethernet and twisted-pair network. The control interface is now fully integrated into the Compass 3.0 software, which supports both Mac and Windows. Compass 3.0 also serves as the user interface for the Galileo loudspeaker management system and the CAL column array loudspeaker. With the control interface moved to Compass 3.0, users of Compass RMS can perform mute, solo, and wink ID functions and monitor more than a dozen parameters much more efficiently. These parameters include peak amplifier power and voltage, average amplifier power, limiting, fan speed, and heat sink temperature. Compass RMS adds the ability to automatically discover RMS-equipped loudspeakers on the network, eliminating most data entry. Using a standard router, Compass RMS can be controlled with a wireless computer or a tablet. RMServer works independently of Compass, and can send emergency notifications via email even when Compass is not connected. RMServer is backwards compatible with all Meyer Sound loudspeakers equipped with an RMS module. RMS is an option for all loudspeaker models and the MPS-488HP power supply. Each RMServer can connect up to 50 RMS-equipped Meyer Sound loudspeakers or 96 low-voltage loudspeakers using 12 RMS-equipped MPS-488HP power supplies.
