Calypso Offers New Programmable Control Panel
Apr 19, 2007 8:00 AM
Ideally suited for controlling projectors, DVD players, and just about any other piece of AV gear, Calypso's new CB-1000 single-gang, wall-mount IR button panel is outfitted with eight tactile, fully programmable buttons.
Used as a standalone controller, the CB-1000 can be wired directly to devices requiring control. Conversely, the CB-1000's IR output can be interfaced with Calypso's Pro I/O or ION controllers to greatly multiply the number and types of components being controlled.
Central among features the CB-1000 button panel offers are fast setup functions utilizing an onboard serial programming port and onboard IR learning. Once an IR code is learned, it can be quickly assigned to a button. In turn, a complete, fully programmed CB-1000 configuration can be automatically copied to additional units via the same serial port. As a safeguard against unauthorized use, passcode security is offered. An internal clock provides scheduled control.
A set of 24 individual pre-labeled caps are included with each CB-1000 that can be used to identify each button. Up to four IR codes can be programmed for each button, which makes an audible click when pressed.
Compatible with standard Decora faceplates, the CB-1000 is in stock and now shipping for the suggested retail price of $249.
