Audio solutions specialist Symetrix has launched the ARC-2e menu-driven wall panel remote. The ARC-2e replaces both the ARC-2 and the ARC-2i, at a significantly lower price point. The ARC-2e joins Symetrix’ complete line of ARC remotes, which provide integrators with the ability to customise an end-user experience that is intuitive, no matter how complicated the underlying processing.
Like other ARC remotes, the ARC-2e presents integrators with a range of useful options. It can take its power either directly from the Symetrix DSP via Cat 5 cable or from an optional DC power supply (PS-6). New user-friendly rotary DIP switches determine the device’s RS485 address.
The stock ARC-2e ships with a white plastic faceplate, but an optional milled aluminum metallic silver faceplate is also available. Like the ARC-2 and ARC-2i, the ARC-2e supports eight static characters and up to 31 scrolling characters, instant user feedback for control assignments, default settings, and actions, and full programming and customisation from within the software used to program the Symetrix DSP.
