Rockleigh, New Jersey (PressExposure) April 27, 2009 -- Now shipping, the MP-B10 (10-button) and MP-B20 (20-button) are enhanced pushbutton control panels designed for installation in a wall or podium. Ideal as a cost-effective user interface for any Crestron system, such as an MPS, or an expansion unit for a Crestron MPC Media Presentation Controllerâ¢, the MP-B10 and MP-B20 are perfect for everyday use in a typical classroom, meeting room, lecture hall or training facility.
Available in white or black, these compact units fit in a three-gang box. Programmable "hard key" buttons can be configured for any function, such as system power, input source selection, transport control, and lighting presets, all with custom backlit labeling. Adjusting audio volume and other parameters is simple using the continuous-turn control knob and LED bar graph.
A built-in IR receiver provides a gateway for Crestron IR wireless touchpanels and handheld remotes. An integrated light sensor is programmable for controlling the backlight intensity or providing ambient lighting level data to the control system for other applications. The MP-B10 and MP-B20 may be powered through the network wiring using either Cresnet or PoE (Power-over-Ethernet), requiring just one wire for operation.
