This is an Ethernet-based I/O interface that the company says is designed to broaden the scope of broadcast remote control. Plant equipment connected to the Plus-X 300 is linked via IP to the ARC Plus for monitoring and control. Ethernet-based I/O allows easy distribution of remote control throughout the facility by utilizing the existing network infrastructure.
Unattended studios benefit because no new wiring from studio equipment to a central control point is needed.
The Plus-X 300 facilitates eight analog and status inputs, as well as eight independent relays for control. The unit is compatible with any ARC Plus system.
