Economical Dual-Bus Control System.

The Crestron AV2 is designed for medium to large-scale commercial and residential control applications. Six built-in COM ports, eight IR/Serial ports, eight I/O Versiports, eight isolated relays, and optional Ethernet provide the essential interface for control of numerous devices including video projectors, plasma displays, switchers, DVD players, screens, lifts, and much more. The AV2 features a built-in power supply, with power available to support external Cresnet devices including touchpanels, keypads and expansion modules.

AV2 features include:

  • 2-Series engine | Dual-bus architecture
  • Compact Flash memory card slot
  • Cresnet port - master/slave selectable
  • 10/100 Ethernet capable | SSL encryption
  • e-Control 2 and RoomView enabled
  • SNMP support | Built-in firewall, NAT and router
  • 6 Com ports, 8 IR/serial ports, 8 Versiport I/O ports, 8 Relay ports
  • 3 Y-Bus / 1 Z-Bus control card expansion slots
  • Internal power supply | 2-Space EIA rack-mountable
