SP Controls Introduces PixiePlus Controller, Programming Wand

sp-controls-pixieplus-white.jpgSP Controls Inc. has announced the new PixiePlus, an advanced version of the company’s popular Pixie AV device controller. The PixiePlus increases user options with advanced features such as RS232 control, automatic device shut-down after a period of inactivity, and an optional real-time clock module which enables shutdown at a specific time of day. The device also provides for a security code, comprised of a sequence of button presses on the PixiePlus panel, that prevent unauthorized use of the AV system. Users have a choice of up to eight control buttons for setting up the PixiePlus panel.

PixiePlus controllers are inexpensive, intuitive control systems that mount into a single-gang wall box with a DecoraTM form factor. Units are user-customizable, using provided snap-in modules. Control of projectors, DVD players and other devices is made simple for users and eliminates the need for remotes.

sp-controls-programming-wand.jpgThe company also introduced an exclusive Programming Wand for the PixiePlus panel. The Programming Wand makes configuration of PixiePlus panels simple and fast. The Programming wand connects to the user’s PC via USB and contains an application that allows the user to set up complex configurations such as specifying RS232 strings as well as regular IR commands and other setup information. Once the user has specified the codes that need to be sent for each button on the PixiePlus, the Programming Wand is disconnected from the PC and carried over to the PixiePlus to be programmed. A simple trigger press conveys the required setup information to the device via its IR port. The company says the Programming Wand is especially useful for facilities using multiple PixiePlus controllers, as it enables fast programming of the controllers without the need to remove them from the wall.
