Crestron launches PoE touchpanel

Crestron is targeting integrators with features including PoE (Power over Ethernet), on its TPMC-4SMD touchpanel.

The device delivers control, video, intercom, and power over a single high-speed Ethernet connection.

It also features Core 3 OS, which delivers new control and graphics capabilities, plus streaming video and two-way IP intercom – all cohesively merged into one seamless user interface. Other notable features include white LED backlit buttons and built-in proximity and occupancy sensor inputs.

Gloss black or white finishes are available. Additional features include streaming video, 2-way IP intercom, white LED backlit buttons and a built-in proximity sensor. Room occupancy sensors can also be directly connected to the touchpanel, enabling automation of the room's lighting, climate control, and other devices.

The 4SMD is able to check room temperatures and lighting levels, and can be used to view of photos, video and digital media playlists complete with metadata and cover art.

Installation options include a standard electrical box or surface mount on glass, granite, or marble. A tabletop enclosure is available.
