Crestron® 2-Series Control Systems are the brain of a complete integrated AV or automation solution. Every audio, video, and environmental element of the home, boardroom, classroom, or command center becomes integrated and accessible through the control system. Crestron 2-Series control systems are unmatched for power, performance and scalability, providing the ideal choice for today's demanding control applications.

The MC2W is a compact 2-Series control system with integrated 1-way RF gateway. Equipped with two built-in COM ports, four IR/Serial ports, four I/O Versiports, and four isolated relays, the MC2W is a great single-box professional RF wireless control solution for boardrooms, lecture halls, home theaters, churches, museums, and more.

Integrated RF Wireless
The MC2W's built-in RF gateway is switchable between 418MHz and 433MHz for compatibility with any Crestron 1-way RF wireless touchpanel or handheld remote.

IR Wireless Option
When equipped with an optional CNXRMIRD IR receiver, the MC2W allows for IR wireless control using any Crestron IR wireless touchpanel, or a third-party universal IR remote.

2-Series Engine
At the heart of the MC2W is the powerful 2-Series engine. Our exclusive enhanced real-time operating system makes the MC2W the fastest, most reliable control system available.

Cresnet is the communications backbone for many Crestron touchpanels, keypads, lighting controls, and other devices. The Cresnet bus is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides rock-solid bidirectional communication for numerous Cresnet devices.

Cresnet Slave Mode
Selectable Cresnet Slave Mode enables the MC2W to be configured as a Cresnet slave device, effectively transforming it into a Cresnet expansion module. Such flexibility can offer a cost-effective solution for system expansion, providing a host of additional control ports in a single module.
