Advanced XP Central Processor
The XP-8v is a high-end remote control processor for automating the operation of electronic systems such as AV, lighting, security, and HVAC in residential and commercial environments. The third generation of RTI’s popular XP-8 advanced control processor, the XP-8v combines the advanced control options of its predecessors with a new i.MX53 processor for increased processing power, expanded two-way driver support, and faster system file downloads. To take the processor’s capabilities even further, its RAM memory and internal non-volatile Flash memory have been upgraded to 1GB and 512MB, respectively. The addition of an HDMI output enables on-screen graphics, providing users with the convenience of a custom control interface on their TVs.
Designed for large-scale and complex projects, the XP-8v combines a real-time/multi-taking operating system with tremendous expandability. The processor offers an abundance of control interface options, such as two-way RS-232, routable IR, Ethernet, and relay control. For expanded integration capabilities, eight multi-purpose I/O ports support optional modules for voltage sensing and RS-232 control. The XP-8v also features eight programmable relay input/outputs and eight sense inputs (voltage or contact closure). The processor’s Ethernet port provides IP control for complete whole-house or facility control, in addition to support for RTI’s RTiPanel app for smart phones, tablets and PC’s. Additionally, the XP-8v incorporates an astronomical clock, allowing for time based events and timers to trigger commands and macros.
In addition to its powerful control features, the XP-8v is programmed with RTI’s new Integration Designer APEX programming platform, which combines time-saving automation with the complete freedom to design custom control experiences setting dealers apart from the competition. The new software features automatic generation of the graphical user interface and programming, a new IR library, multi-room programming, advanced graphic resizing, and more.
