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 MC2E is a low-cost 2-Series Ethernet control system ideally suited for any application requiring the powerful control engine and Ethernet connectivity of larger Crestron control systems, but with fewer control ports. The MC2E features two built-in COM ports, four IR/Serial ports, four I/O Versiports, four isolated relays, and Ethernet for control of video projectors, plasma displays, switchers, DVD players, screens, lifts, and much more. Additional control ports may be added using Cresnet expansion modules, or by "slaving" additional control processors.
At the heart of the MC2E is the powerful 2-Series engine. Our exclusive enhanced real-time operating system makes the MC2E 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 MC2E 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.
Crestron pioneered the IP-based control system to harness the vast possibilities of Ethernet and the Internet for remote control, monitoring, programming, and diagnostics. The MC2E is designed to deliver the world's most advanced IP control solution with full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet, built-in Web server and email client, and support for both static and dynamic IP addressing.
Our award-winning e-Control 2 XPanel solutions offer the most flexible range of IP control possibilities available. Using a computer or mobile device, e-Control 2 provides an amazing control GUI that looks and behaves just like a Crestron touchpanel.
Every Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control system works directly with Crestron's exclusive RoomView Help Desk software for the industry's most comprehensive facility-wide asset management solution.
Built-in SNMP support enables network management of Crestron control systems using third-party SNMP software. As an alternate or supplement to RoomView, SNMP allows full control and monitoring from the IT Help Desk or NOC in a format that's familiar to IT personnel.
All Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control systems support SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the industry standard for protecting sensitive network communications.
IR Wireless Option
When equipped with an optional CNXRMIRD IR receiver, the MC2E provides a low-cost wireless control solution using any Crestron IR wireless touchpanel, or a third-party universal IR remote.
