MX-RCP16 and MX-RCP32
Remote control panels for Lightware matrix switchers
Lightware MX-RCP16 and MX-RCP32 are remote control panels for controlling Lightware matrix routers remotely through LAN connection. The RCPs can be used just like the front panel buttons on matrix routers to make crosspoint changes, or they can be programmed for special functions like salvo mode or universal device control. The salvo mode allows storing a group of commands for each button. This function makes possible to send out multiple commands with a single press of a button. The universal device control mode transforms the RCP to a simple button array to control any device through a simple protocol. The control panels have illuminated front panel buttons and an Ethernet LAN port for configuration and connecting to the controlled device.
The remote control panels can communicate with different protocols, and they have several operational modes. The communication protocol can be set with a DIP switch on the rear of the unit. Using different protocols depends on the application and the device that has to be controlled.
In X-Y mode the remote control panel functions just as if it would be the front side control panel of a matrix. Each button is dedicated to an input or an output of the matrix router that the RCP is connected to.
The salvo mode makes possible to execute a sequence of commands with a single button. In this mode the buttons are not dedicated to I/O ports, but each button can have its own command sequence that is executed if the button is pressed.
