ARC-2e

… a menu-driven remote control for Symetrix DSPs …

ARC-2e Front with Aluminum Faceplate

The ARC-2e is a menu-driven remote control for Symetrix DSPs with 24 menus each with up to 16 items used to control multiple basic functions or complex logic-based events including volume, presets, source selection, room combining and more. The 8-character backlit display supports up to thirty-one scrolling characters, providing user feedback for control assignments, default settings, and actions. The three buttons navigate menus, adjust parameters, and enable or disable the wall panel. The ARC-2e mounts in a single gang electrical box (US).

Navigation

Pressing the menu button moves the user through the menu names. The menu button also acts as a preset trigger when a preset list is scrolled. The up/down arrow buttons adjust parameter settings and scroll through preset lists. Holding the menu button and using the up/ down arrow keys move the user forward or backward through the menus.

Behavior

The wall panel’s behavior is programmable. Menu brightness in active and inactive states can be set independently so the display will dim in light-sensitive environments. When idle the ARC-2e can scroll a message and return to the top of its menu tree. Programmable upper and lower parameter limits contain ranges of adjustment and a button press lockout prevents tampering. The ARC-2e is furnished with a white faceplate and mounts in a single gang electrical box (US).

Optional Aluminum Faceplate

The ARC-2e Aluminum Faceplate is a single gang aluminum replacement for the stock plastic faceplate.

Architect and Engineer Specifications: Symetrix Wall Panels.

The series of wall panels shall be designated in two groups – Adaptive Remote Controls (ARC) and standard Remote Controls (RCs).

ARCs may be divided by functionality into the Menu and Modular ARCs. The Menu ARC-3 shall include one 256×64 pixel resolution white on black OLED backlit display and three capacitive touch areas for menu selection and value increment/decrement. The Menu ARC-3 shall mount into a single gang electrical box (US/UK/EU) or surface mount with the included enclosure. Power and control shall be connected via two RJ45 connectors. The Menu ARC-2e shall include one 8-character backlit alpha-numeric display, one momentary button for menu selection, and two momentary buttons for value increment/decrement. The Menu ARC-2e shall mount in a standard U.S. single-gang box. Power and control shall be connected via two RJ45 connectors. Modular ARC wall panels shall consist of multiple models that mount in standard U.S. single-gang box, and shall be compatible with standard Decora® faceplates. ARC-K1e shall include one push-button rotary encoder, one eight-segment LED stack, and two status LED indicators; ARC-SW4e shall include four momentary buttons with four corresponding status LED indicators; ARC-EX4e shall include four momentary buttons with four corresponding status LED indicators. All Remote Controls shall function as user interfaces for Symetrix DSP systems. All shall be configured by software provided with the hosting device to assign control within DSP system components. RS-485 communications shall be utilized for software control and configuration. The series of wall panels shall be CSA tested to UL 60065. The series of wall panels shall be Adaptive Remote Controls (ARCs).

RC wall panels shall mount in a standard U.S. single gang box, and the RC-3 shall be compatible with standard Decora® faceplates. RC-3 shall include one rotary potentiometer. It shall connect to a Symetrix device’s analog control inputs via screw-type barrier strips utilizing standard shielded twisted pair wiring with two conductors plus ground for the RC-3. RC-3 shall be configured by software provided with the hosting device to assign control within DSP system components. The series of wall panels shall be CE marked, CSA tested to UL 60065. The series of wall panels shall be Remote Controls (RCs).
