Wired networked control via standard CAT5 cable

The extender is connected via a standard RJ-45 ethernet port to the network.

Advanced connectivity: addressable IR ports

Addressable IR ports enable control of the same type of devices in a rack independently (by the same extender). Typically this is the case with multiple set-top boxes to distribute content throughout the house. Every device is asigned its own dedicated IR port. As a result the device will only receive the IR codes that are intended for this device and not for any other. Without addressable IR codes, every device will always receive all sent-out IR codes.

Advanced connectivity: RS232 serial interface

RS232 (also known as serial communication) is a more secure control mechanism than traditional IR control. The 4 serial ports on the extender allow the control panel to control up to 4 different devices with a serial interface such as advanced A/V Receivers, projectors or DVD players, or lighting control systems.

Advanced connectivity: contact closures

Contact closures are used typically to operate motorized equipment such as projector screens, plasma lifts. curtains, ... that do not have any other control interface. The extender has 4 contact closures that the control panel can instruct to open or close. As a result, 4 motorized devices can be controlled separately.

Advanced connectivity: input sensors

Input sensors detect if equipment is powered on. Optional power, video or audio sensors will provide the necessary voltage input to determine if the equipment is on or off. These sensors need to be wired to the input sensor. The status of the input sensor can be used in conditional macros to ensure that the equipment is powered on or off when needed.

Unique Pronto protocol guarantees best-in-class control

The Pronto system uses standard WiFi for wireless control but has added an additional smart protocol to guarantee a reliable and timely execution of IR codes and macros.

Smart feedback provides immediate system information

The smart 2-way Pronto protocol regulates the commands that are sent from the Pronto control panel to the extenders. Each extender will acknowledge the execution and the user will be informed in case a command cannot be executed.

Emits IR codes up to 1MHz

The powerful IR-circuit is capable of transmitting virtually any IR code. Where many remote control systems are limited to 125 kHz, the Pronto extenders can send IR-frequencies to up to 1 MHz.

Standard 48 cm (19") rack-mountable housing

The extender fits perfectly in a standard 48 cm (19") rack for an easy and professional installation. All necessary mounting material is delivered with the extender.

DHCP & fixed IP supported for flexible network configuration

Both DHCP and fixed IP configuration are supported. DHCP requires less effort to configure while fixed IP offers the most stable network.

Smart feedback indicators for easy troubleshooting

Colored LED's provide information about the system, such as ethernet or WiFi connections, busy status or execution of an IR, RS232 or relays command (RFX9600 only). Errors are also displayed, helping the user to do troubleshooting if necessary.
