The Zone Controllers offer extended utility to the DriveRack® and ZonePRO™ families. The nine Zone Controllers use analog DC voltage to provide logic control ranging from zone source selection, volume and muting, to program or scene selection and fire safety muting. Wired with readily available and affordable CAT5 cable with universally accepted RJ-45 connectors at distances up to 1000 ft, the ZC Zone Controllers offer simple yet elegant solutions to the contractor.
The ZC-FIRE is a dedicated fire safety interface for the ZonePRO products that allows selection of either system mute or scene selection upon being triggered by either a relay or control voltage from the fire safety system.
Architects’ and Engineers’ Specifications:
The remote device shall provide either output muting or programmable scene selection for the dbx® ZonePRO™ devices. Connection to the fire safety system shall be either through a relay or directly to the control voltage output. The remote device shall have DIP switches allowing identificationwith connection to the processing device via CAT 5 cable on RJ-45 connectors. The device shall be a dbx ZC-FIRE remote controller.
