The Symetrix ARC-PSe provides serial control and power distribution over standard CAT5/6 cable for systems with more than 4 ARCs, or, when any number of ARCs are located long distances from a Integrator Series, Jupiter or SymNet DSP unit. A half-rack form factor conserves rack space, or, if preferred, the ARC-PSe may be surface mounted. All mounting hardware is included. The incoming serial control signal coming from the DSP is received by the ARC-PSe on a RJ-45 input connector, and then power and signal are distributed via 8 RJ-45 output connectors. The use of off-the-shelf CAT5/6 cable and RJ-45 connectors reduces installation time and materials costs.
Distributes power and data to multiple ARC wall panels via eight RJ-45 connectors over long distances.
Connects directly to any Integrator Series, Jupiter or SymNet DSP unit using standard CAT5/6 cables.
Supports flexible ‘star’ configuration, ‘daisy-chain’, or a hybrid of the two.
Versatile half-rack design. All hardware is included to mount 1 or 2 in a single rack space or to surface mount.
ARC Power Calculator spreadsheet helps determine maximum ARC quantities and distances between wall panels.
Total ARC Cable Length (RS-485 from DSP to furthest ARC): Standard CAT5/6, maximum total cable length = 4000 feet / 1219 meters for RS-485 data.
Number of ARCs Supported: The power draw is dependent upon ARC types used, number of each type, and total cable length. At least 8 ARC-2e with 800 feet / 243 meters of cable supported.
