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 CP2 is a compact control system designed for small to medium sized residential and commercial control applications. Three built-in COM ports, eight IR/Serial ports, eight I/O Versiports, and eight isolated relays provide 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" an additional CP2 or other control processor.
At the heart of the CP2 is the powerful 32-bit Freescale ColdFire® processor. Crestron's exclusive enhanced real-time operating system makes the CP2 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 CP2 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.
