By PSW Staff • May 19, 2009 The new Allen & Heath PL-11 IR receiver with an accompanying PL-5 IR transmitter 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.
