Modular controller with 4 slots.
Configure any way you need.
Rack-mountable, configure to suit your system requirements using our various hardware modules.
4 module slots
and CFLink BUS.
The modular nature of this controller means you can configure the connectivity based on your system requirements, paying for only what you need.
Informative front panel
for status monitoring.
The front panel display offers a range of information, helping diagnose system configuration and activity issues quickly and easily. LED's even light up to tell you exactly what modules are plugged in.
to check connectivity.
Using the front panel test buttons, you can ensure your connections are all working without the hassle of controlling the unit remotely. Activate relays, send IR codes, trigger dry contact inputs, and so on.
The MOD4 is a rack-mountable, modular controller. Featuring 4 module slots, it can be freely configured to meet your connectivity requirements from job to job. Need 17 RS232 ports? How about 32 IR outputs? No problem. The MOD4 has you covered.
The rear casing of the MOD4 is removable so that modules can be installed/removed as required. It also helps with cable management if required.
All CFLink devices, including the CF Mini, support a powerful rule triggering engine. This allows you to trigger macros to run when a specific event occurs - such as reading a specific value via the I/O ports, or on incoming data via the RS232 port. Using the rules engine, you can setup basic or complex automation actions.
Two units of the MOD4 can be installed in a single rack space height (1RU) using the optional RACKIT (rack-mount kit, sold separately).
Each module slot can be filled with any of our available hardware modules. Combinations of RS232/422/485, IR ports, I/O ports, Relays are up to you. Mix and match the modules to suit your requirements. The MOD4 ships with 4 blank modules, other modules sold separately.
On-board RS232/Program Port
The MOD4 contains an on-board RS232/Program port, which can be used to either control third party RS232 devices, or control the MOD4 and any other CFLink devices on the same CFLink bus from a third party control system.
Hidden Front Panel
The MOD4 comes with a detachable front cover, hiding all the geeky-ness and transforming the MOD4 into a sleek component at home in any home entertainment cabinet. A simple magnet attachment makes it easy to temporarily remove when viewing of the front panel detail is required.
