Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) is now shipping the second generation of its RK-3 in-wall touchpanel controller, the RK3-V.
The RK3-V’s 3.5 VGA-resolution screen displays custom text, graphics, web pages, and CD cover artwork and is available with a white or black faceplate and buttons in a matte or glossy finish. Low-profile bezels are also available in white, almond, ivory, silver, or black.
According to RTI, the RK3-V is the only compact in-wall touchpanel to provide both direct infrared control and 10/100Base-T Ethernet for displaying motion JPEG video and web pages -- either full screen or in an adjustable window. In addition, the programmable graphical user interface is completely customizable, allowing the integrator to easily provide complete, intuitive control for the end user with RTI's Integration Designer software, the company says.
The RK3-V has been designed as a stand-alone device or as a part of an expandable central control system.
When used with the available RTI accessory devices, the RK3-V is capable of infrared routing, relay control, power sensing, and RS-232 communications for advanced control.
In addition, the RK3-V also offers bi-directional communication, allowing feedback from compatible devices such as music servers, environmental controls and even web-based information services such as weather forecasts.
The RK3-V is available at an MSRP of $999.00.
