The Zone Controllers offer extended utility to the DriveRack® and ZonePRO™ families. The nine Zone Controllers use analog DC voltage to provide logic control ranging from zone source selection, volume and muting, to program or scene selection and fire safety muting. Wired with readily available and affordable CAT5 cable with universally accepted RJ-45 connectors at distances up to 1000 ft, the ZC Zone Controllers offer simple yet elegant solutions to the contractor.
The ZC-4 provides program change capability from contact closures for the DriveRack 220i and 260. It can also provide source selection, page steering, or scene selection for ZonePRO devices.
The remote device provides programmable program selection via contact closures for the dbx® DriveRac®k 220i and 260 devices. The remote device also provides contact closure programmable source selection, page assignment, or scene selection for the dbx ZonePRO™ devices. The remote device has DIP switches allowing identification with connection to the processing device via CAT 5 cable on RJ-45 connectors.
