RTI Now Shipping CPB -1 Control Port Connecting Block

Cost-Effective Solution Powers In-Wall Controller, Provides IR and RS-232 Control of Local Devices

SHAKOPEE, Minn. - April 6, 2009 - Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), a leading manufacturer of professional -grade, integrator -friendly control solutions, today announced that the company is now shipping its CPB -1 control port connecting block. For integrators, the cost -effective solution powers an RTI in -wall controller while providing both infrared (IR) and RS -232 control of local devices.


Ideal for one -room installations such as boardrooms, classrooms, or stand -alone rooms, RTI's CPB -1 provides power to one RTI in -wall system controller and features two output ports that allow the connection of up to two single or dual IR emitters. To lower costs, the connecting block's RS -232 port allows for the serial control of devices, from an RTI in -wall controller, without the need of a separate RTI central control processor. For a simple, clean installation, the CPB -1's RJ -45 to DB -9 adapter allows for connection to almost any serial control device.

"Now more than ever, integrators are looking for cost -effective solutions without sacrificing the quality and performance their customers rely on," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "That is exactly what our CPB -1 provides, and we are excited to announce that it is now available and shipping to our network of dealers."

The 16 -V CPB -1 features a durable steel enclosure with a black powder coating. Measuring 4 inches by 3.5 inches by 1.1 inches (width by height by depth), the connecting block can be wall mounted or free standing. The CPB -1 provides variable IR output power and is IR input compatible with industry -standard repeaters and receivers.

The CPB -1 is available now at an MSRP of $149.
