The Bridge for Network Remotes
The MRX-1 enables IR and RS-232 devices to be controlled by URC
Cool Volume Pop-ups
Via the MRX-1, most RS-232 components can display 2-way volume
pop-ups on the KP-4000.
Whole House URC Lighting via RFTX-1
Via the RFTX-1 transmitter, the MRX-1 can relay commands from
any URC Network Control to URC Lighting devices. By installing
multiple MRX-1/RFTX-1 relay stations around a home, installers
can create seamless coverage of any size house, allowing
lighting paths and whole house scenes.
Utilize MRX-1 Sensor Port to Automate TOAD Devices
The MRX-1 offers URC Network Controls automation capability for
devices that do not have discrete codes. It is equipped with a
sensor port compatible with optional URC video or voltage
sensors, so an installer can program macros that test whether a
device is On or Off before issuing input commands etc.
Control Devices with Relays
URC Network Controls can control lifts, screens, etc., via the
MRX-1s NO (normally open), NC (normally closed) or MC (momentary
Status Request Macro Capability
The KP-4000 features 2-way RS-232 Status Request Macro
Capability; it can request the status of a RS-232 device like a
TV, and based on the reply, execute an if/else macro (for
example, If: TV is “OFF”, issue the “Power On” command,
wait four seconds, and then issue the “Input 1”
command/Else: just issue the “Input 1” command).
Narrow Band RF Compatible
Complete Control remotes and keypads can also control the same
IR devices with an optional RFX-250 or RFX-250i. Plus, its IR
input receives incoming signals from other RF base stations,
including the ZigBee-based MRZ-260.
Features and Benefits
Relay: One relay configurable
to be NO, NC or Momentary
Sensor: One sensor supports
Video or Voltage sensing via URC sensors
RS-232: Two RS-232 ports
support TX, RX and GND two way communication via URC cables
IR: Six adjustable IR ports
enable the included URC emitters to control IR devices.
Note: 6th IR Output requires
the included sleeved emitter (identified by a pink
connector), and can optionally be used to connect an RFTX-1.
