RTI's New Custom Control Kit Provides a Jump Start to Home Automation, Plus Easy Upgrade Paths

Integrating RTI and Pro Control Solutions, C2K1 Starter Kit Bundles XP-3 Processor, Pro.24.z Remote, and Unlimited RTiPanel License in One Cost-Effective Package

SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Nov. 16, 2017 — RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, today announced the availability of a new custom control kit that integrates Pro Control solutions into the RTI control platform for the first time. Bundling the company's XP-3 control processor, Pro Control's Pro24.z remote, and an unlimited RTiPanel license in one cost-effective package, the C2K1 starter kit allows dealers to offer their customers a jump start into home automation, while delivering a simple upgrade path to more sophisticated control.

"The C2K1 makes an important addition to our product lineup, as it marks the first time that Pro Control solutions can be programmed within our Integration Designer® APEX software," said Mike Everett, Vice President of Global Sales, RTI. "The kit will help integrators attract new clients with a powerful home automation solution at an entry-level price. As a client's needs change, the C2K1 can be easily upgraded, taking full advantage of the RTI control platform."

The new starter kit is centered around RTI's XP-3 advanced control processor. The processor features a built-in ZigBee® RF transceiver to allow bi-directional communications with compatible RTI and Pro Control remote controls. In addition to control options — including IR, RS-232 and relays — the XP-3 utilizes two-way drivers that provide users with instant feedback from third-party devices and has an astronomical clock for time-based events.

Using RTI's award-winning RTiPanel app for Apple® and Android™ devices, an unlimited number of users can now control installed electronic systems via their favorite smartphones and tablets. In addition, the C2K1's Pro Control Pro24.z remote control sports a sleek, sophisticated design with a high-resolution 2.4-inch TFT LCD touch-screen display, programmable five-way joystick, and backlit hard buttons to enable intuitive operation even in a darkened room.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
