Electro-Voice RCM-810 Iris-Net Remote Control
The RCM-810 Remote Control Module is a digital controller module for live sound reinforcement, PA and fixed installation applications. Installing the RCM-810 turns a conventional amp into a remote amplifier, which, at any time, provides complete overview of the overall system status and control of system parameters.
RCM-810 modules allow the integration of amplifiers into a remote control network with up to 100 devices. By using multiple networks within an IRIS-Net project up to 250 amplifiers can be used in total. This offers the possibility to control and monitor an entire PA system from one or more PCs using the IRIS-Net - Intelligent Remote and Integrated Supervision - software package. All operational states, e.g. power-on status, temperature, activation of protections, load impedance, etc., are centrally registered and displayed in IRIS-Net. This provides the possibility to react and to selectively intervene even before critical operational states arise. Programming an automatic reaction, when specific thresholds are being exceeded or fallen below, is also possible.
Parameters, like power on/off, muting, etc. can be controlled in real-time and stored in the amplifier. In the event of network failure or loss of power, all settings stay intact, independent of the control by the network.
Furthermore, the RCM-810 provides a control port with freely programmable control inputs and control outputs. Control inputs (GPI's) allow the connection of switches. IRIS-Net offers the possibility to program a variety of logic functions for the inputs. Control outputs (GPO's) allow the connection of external components, which, for example, are used to signal specific states to peripheral equipment. Consequently, an amplifier with a RCM-810 module installed corresponds to highest safety requirements. For further details about configuration, control and monitoring of amps with installed RCM-810 modules, please refer to the documentation of IRIS-Net.
