Axium KPC 2.8-N Touch Screen

The Axium KPC2.8-NC keypad is a programmable 2.8” colour LCD capacitive Touch screen. Being capable

of learning and sending IR commands the KPC2.8-N can be used as a standalone keypad to control virtually

any IR controlled device.

The KPC-NC can be connected via a PoE network switch or via the RJ45 port connected to an amplifier

keypad port. When used with an Axium Multi-Zone Amplifier full 2-way feedback of source selection, power,

mute and volume status is provided. Full 2-way RS232 an IP control is available when connected to an

Axium AX-R4D/R1D RS232 router and the prebuilt Axium applets. Setup by the Axium Design Portal software, the KPC2.8-NC includes a host of features to simplify programming and enhance amplifier and source equipment control.

The Slideshow screen saver has also been improved, we have introduced transition effects. Instead of just displaying the next image it performs a randomly selected effect for transitioning to the next image. In addition, you can now use JPEG images so you can get more images into the KPC-NC memory before it is full.
