The PRO2's unique dual-bus architecture affords ultra fast communications. The 40Mbps Y-Bus provides a high-speed backplane for IR, serial, and other integrated control ports.Additional control ports and interfaces like MIDI and digital audio processing may be added by installing up to three Y-Bus control cards. At a blazing 300Mbps, the Z-Bus supports Fast Ethernet with future support for other emerging technologies. Cresnet is the communications backbone for many Crestron touchpanels, keypads, lighting controls, and other devices. The Cresnet bus is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides rock-solid bidirectional communication and power for up to 252 Cresnet devices. Selectable Cresnet Slave Mode enables the PRO2 to be configured as a Cresnet slave device, effectively transforming it into a Cresnet expansion module. Such flexibility can offer a cost-effective solution for system expansion, providing a host of additional control ports in a single module.
Crestron pioneered the IP-based control system to harness the vast possibilities of Ethernet and the Internet for remote control, monitoring. Programming, and diagnostics, and the PRO2 is designed to deliver the world's most advanced IP control solution. Crestron's award-winning solutions offer the most flexible range of IP control possibilities available. Using a Windows® computer or CE/PocketPCT PDA device, e-Control 2 provides an amazing control GUI that looks and behaves just like a Crestron Isys® touchpanel. Every Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control system works directly with Crestron's exclusive Help Desk software for the industry's most.
Comprehensive facility-wide asset management solution. Built-in SNMP support enables network management of Crestron control systems using third-party SNMP software. As an alternate or supplement to RoomView, SNMP allows full control and monitoring from the IT Help Desk or NOC in a format that's familiar to IT personnel.All Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control systems support SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the industry standard for protecting sensitive network communications. The PRO2's onboard NAT (Network Address Translator) acts as a firewall and router to facilitate the configuration of a private control LAN with a single-point connection to the client's LAN (Dual-port Ethernet card required). A memory card slot accessible on the rear panel allows for easy expansion of the PRO2's internal memory using any Type II Compact Flash memory card up to 2 GB. The PRO2 includes a programmable front control panel with LCD display and control port status indicators. The PRO2's front panel serves as a ready user interface for system configuration and diagnostics, and can also be custom programmed to enable menu-driven control capability.
