Control I/O is an RS-485 control peripheral for the SymNet Audio Matrix system. This add-on expands SymNet’s external control capabilities by providing additional ports to a SymNet audio network.
Additional ports include: eight control voltage inputs for encoders, pots or up to 16 contact closures; four binary relay and eight open collector outputs; four powered Adaptive Remote Control (ARC) ports; and a 15-pin joystick MIDI port allows SymNet to connect with standard MIDI control surfaces and other software/hardware products.
Communication between the Control I/O and a SymNet ring is accomplished via RS-485, so the unit can be placed thousands of feet away from the SymNet system. Additionally, Control I/O can function as a stand-alone controller for non-SymNet products by using ASCII text messages to configure the unit.
SymNet software support for the Control I/O is included in the SymNet Designer Version 3.52 application. For more, visit www.symetrixaudio.com.
