A new addition to the Allen & Heath PL remote control range, the PL-11 is an IR receiver that uses the proprietary PL-Anet CAT5 plug and play protocol employed in Allen & Heath’s iDR and iLive digital mixing systems.
Built in to a wallplate backing, the PL-11 receives commands from the PL-5 hand held IR transmitter, which can be set to perform specific functions using iDR’s System Manager software or via the TouchScreen in iLive mixing consoles.
The PL-11 IR receiver is useful where open or ‘hidden’ system settings need to be changed by authorized personnel, as they do not have any unguarded controls.
Fourteen soft keys on the PL-5 can be programmed to manage functions such as levels, mutes, preset recall and MIDI strings for external equipment interfacing.
iDR systems also provide tally/RS232 out, and IR protocol is contained in the System Manager software download bundle.
The PL-11, which ships with a PL-5, is available to order immediately.
