RTI ships 2nd gen controller

Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) is shipping its T1-B+ wireless controller, the second generation of the company's T1-B controller.

The all-hard-button remote offers customisable control housed in a contemporary design specifically suited for today's home and office environments.

It has 40 assignable keypad buttons that can be individually programmed to control devices or execute multistep macros.

For more intuitive control, the unit offers twelve keypad buttons, which can be fitted with custom keycaps for common control tasks such as selecting an AV source.

These button keycaps can also be custom engraved using RTI's Laser Shark service. RTI's Integration Designer software can be used to program the controller.

It features RTI's revolutionary dual-RF platform, which supports both 433-MHz RF and 2.4-GHz ZigBee for reliable RF communication with RTI processors.

With RTI's processors, the T1-B+'s capabilities can be expanded to include RS-232 control, contact closures and power sensing.

The unit also offers standalone IR control with a broad IR transmitting frequency range of 15 kHz to 460 kHz. It is equipped with an integrated tilt switch, coupled with a lithium-ion battery and charging dock.

Non-volatile flash memory will also store system configurations even when power is not present.
