MiniLCD Handheld Remote

An ergonomic handheld RF or IR wireless remote with customizable LCD display, 5-way thumb pad, and an intuitive array of pushbuttons.

The ML-600 MiniLCD is a handheld wireless remote that features a customizable LCD display, a 5-way thumb pad controller, and an intuitive array of pushbuttons designated for a variety of common AV functions. But, Crestron® designed the ML-600 to go beyond conventional home theater and AV system control, extending domain over lighting, climate, security, and more as part of a complete Crestron system. Its compact size and ergonomic design offer easy one-handed operation.

Clear Display
The large, easy-to-read LCD screen supports the creation of numerous pages of custom functions and favorites, all executable using a set of ten corresponding menu buttons. Three additional buttons are included for fast menu page selection. Any of the ten functions, or "Groups" provided on the Main menu page can be assigned to access up to four additional Option pages. Additionally, up to 5 pages of Favorites can be configured.

Adjustable LCD contrast and switchable electroluminescent blue backlighting ensure optimal visibility in a range of lighting environments. While drawing very little power, the menu commands remain active and ready on the screen at all times. When battery levels are low, a "Low Battery" message is displayed while pressing the Power button allowing for timely replacement of batteries. Non-volatile memory ensures that programming is retained when batteries are low.

Tactile Response
The buttons on the ML-600 feature a glossy, domed, firm rubber treatment with a sleek translucent appearance and secure tactile response. Backlighting of every button facilitates control in a darkened room. An optimized button layout enables easy access to every system function, with 27 programmable buttons labeled for power, volume, mute, channel selection, transport control, and numeric entry.

The ML-600's intuitive 5-way thumb pad with discrete center select button affords effortless cursor control for navigation of onscreen menus and other functions.

RF and IR Wireless[1]
Proven Crestron RF wireless technology affords an operational range of up to 200 feet with complete freedom of movement. Long-range 418 MHz 1-way RF communication enables compatibility with any Crestron control system via the CNRFGWA-418 gateway[2]. The ML-600 is also ideal for use with a Crestron MC2W Integrated Wireless Control System[2].

IR communication is facilitated using a C2N-IRGW-1G or C2N-IRGW-F IR Gateway[2], or CNXRMIRD IR Receiver[2] along with a compatible control system or room solution box.
