Niles Audio has introduced its first High Fidelity Wideband IR Sensor line, which is designed for compatibility with virtually all current and emerging IR code formats, including the new Philips RCMM code structure.
These new IR Sensors are designed to optimally amplify and carefully preserve IR signal integrity. This unique sensor design is able to pass the low duty-cycle, high data rate IR signals found in many new source components, such as HD cable boxes and satellite receivers.
Paired with Niles’ patent-pending Universal Noise Suppression technology, which implements more than 10 different methodologies to ensure effective and reliable operation in a multitude of “noisy” environments, Niles IR Sensors offer professional systems integrators a universally capable IR sensor solution for any application, according to the manufacturer.
“Niles’ new IR Sensors provide custom installers with a single infrared control solution for virtually any application,” said Frank Sterns, president of Niles Audio. “With our unique and high-fidelity ultra-wideband amplification and Universal Noise Suppression technology, our new IR Sensors are unaffected by the interferences associated with noisy environments common to most installations involving IR. Dealers will now have an advanced, single IR solution, helping to eliminate the previously cost-prohibitive need to specify, order, and stock multiple models of IR sensors,” Sterns added.”
The IR Sensor line includes the following models to accommodate any installation:
MS220 Surface-Mount IR Sensor (MSRP $139.95)
MS120 Miniature Flush-Mount Sensor (MSRP ($149.95)
TS120 Tabletop IR Sensor (MSRP $129.95)
WS120 Wall-Mount IR Sensor (MSRP $129.95)
CS120 Ceiling-Mount IR Sensor (MSRP $159.95
In addition, several Niles Remote Control Anywhere Kits- the RCA-SM2 (MSRP $279.95), RCA-TT2 (MSRP $249.95) and RCA-HT2 (MSRP $319.95)-feature models from the new IR sensors.
