RTI’s Second-Generation XP-6s Control Processor Now Shipping Advanced Control Processor Delivers More Processing Power, Expanded Memory, and a Rack-Mountable DesignBy RS Staff Published: March 19, 2018 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 RTI is now shipping the second generation of its XP-6 advanced control processor—the new XP-6s, which offers increased processing power, expanded memory, and a rack-mountable design. Perfect for complex projects such as smart homes, corporate environments, and sports bars, the XP-6s features the advanced control options of its predecessor while offering a faster i.MX53 CPU for increased processing power. To take the processor’s capabilities even further, RTI upgraded it with eight times more RAM memory and four times more internal nonvolatile Flash memory, bringing both up to a whopping 512MB. The XP-6s’ new rack-mountable design allows for simple installation with myriad AV, security, and environmental systems used in today’s installations. Designed to meet the evolving needs of any project, the XP-6s offers comprehensive control and automation options, including two-way RS-232, routable IR, and Ethernet. It also features three programmable relays, three voltage trigger outputs, and three voltage sense inputs. The processor’s Ethernet port provides IP control in addition to support for RTI’s RTiPanel app for smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Additionally, the XP-6s incorporates an astronomical clock, allowing time-based events and timers to trigger commands and macros.
