  • More Info

    A-BUS is an audio distribution technology that uses category 5 cable to distribute power, audio, and IR control signals. Power and line-level audio signals are delivered to the keypads that amplify the signal and distribute it to a pair of speakers (sold separately). The keypads have IR sensors that detect signals from remote controls (sold separately) and transmit the IR signals through the cat. 5 wire back to the Rack-Mount 1x4 A-BUS Distribution Module, which activates the IR emitters (sold separately) that control the source devices.

    The Rack-Mount 1x4 A-BUS Distribution Module can support up to four keypads for four connected rooms in your home. The module also has an expansion output to connect to additional units.

    The Rack-Mount 1x4 A-BUS Distribution Module is powered by a 24V DC power supply, which is included with the module. Mount the Rack-Mount 1x4 A-BUS Distribution Module in your equipment rack or in any standard structured wiring enclosure.

    Careful, when combining this with a P-1044, it only adds 3 new zones (1 zone from the P-1044 is used to send signal to this unit)...
