AMX Remote Boxes

AMX Residential Remote Boxes are compact units that can be placed anywhere in a home, extending the connectivity of the Landmark system while eliminating many long runs of control cable to AMX cardframes. Remote Boxes communicate with the Landmark system via the AMX Residential data bus, using one of the two RJ-45 ports on the rear panel. The other RJ-45 port can be used for daisy-chaining additional devices. On all remote boxes LEDs on the front panel indicate power and link status. IR Out and IR IN LEDs illuminate when commands are sent or received. An ID button provides ID information to the Landmark system that facilitates easy connection of the physical Remote Contact Box with the correct Remote Contact Box in software. All Remote Boxes come with a 12VDC power supply.

Remote Television Control Center (TCC)

Remote Television Control Center (TCC) The TCC Remote Television Control Center controls TV, video projector, and media sources via four IR ports. IR commands are received via a built-in IR sensor on the front of the box or by an optional external Xantech IR sensor that plugs into a Phoenix connector on the rear panel. TV or projector power (signal) is sensed via a built-in base-band video sensor. There are two contact/voltage inputs that can sense a dry-contact closure or a voltage change from 0-12VDC. The threshold voltage is approximately 1.5VDC. It does not sense analog voltage levels, nor does it sense AC voltage changes. There is a +12VDC pin on the Contact connector that can be used to power external contact-type devices such as a motion detector.

Remote Relay Box (RL6)

Remote Relay Box (RL6) The RL6 Remote Relay Box contains six dry-contact relays for controlling external devices, such as screens, drapes, video lifts, and other closure-control equipment. Relays can be set to normally open or normally closed with internal jumpers. All relays have independent common connections, allowing a variety of devices to be used with the RL6. Connection to external devices is via screw-down Phoenix connectors on the rear panel.

Remote Contact Box (IN5)

The IN5 Remote Contact Box provides control inputs for up to five external contact switches or closure-type devices. LEDs on the front panel indicate power and link status. An ID button provides ID information to the Landmark system that facilitates easy connection of the physical Remote Contact Box with the correct Remote Contact Box in software.

PMB-IRI Mini IR Receiver

The AMX mini IR receiver can be unobtrusively placed at any convenient location. It receives IR commands from the PLR-IR1 IR Remote Control and transmits those commands to the Landmark system over a AMX Residential network. It confirms valid commands by lighting a front-panel LED.
