Advanced Control Processor Delivers More Processing Power, Expanded Memory, and a Rack-Mountable Design
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — March 15, 2018 — RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, today announced that the company is now shipping the second generation of its popular XP-6 advanced control processor — the new XP-6s, which offers increased processing power, expanded memory, and a rack-mountable design.
Perfect for complex projects such as smart homes, corporate environments, and sports bars, the XP-6s features the advanced control options of its predecessor while offering a faster i.MX53 CPU for increased processing power. To take the processor's capabilities even further, RTI upgraded it with eight times more RAM memory and four times more internal nonvolatile Flash memory, bringing both up to a whopping 512MB. The XP-6s' new rack-mountable design allows for simple installation with the myriad A/V, security, and environmental systems used in today's installations.
Designed to meet the evolving needs of any project, the XP-6s offers comprehensive control and automation options, including two-way RS 232, routable IR, and Ethernet. It also features three programmable relays, three voltage trigger outputs, and three voltage sense inputs. The processor's Ethernet port provides IP control in addition to support for RTI's RTiPanel app for smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Additionally, the XP-6s incorporates an astronomical clock, allowing time-based events and timers to trigger commands and macros.
"After thousands of installations, the XP-6 has earned its reputation as the bulletproof, workhorse processor that you can use in any project, and it just works," said Mike Everett, Vice President of Global Sales at RTI. "With the ever-expanding list of smart devices and integration options, it was time to give our popular processor the additional horsepower it needs to continue this legacy well into the future. We couldn't be more excited to offer our dealers the next-generation XP-6s."
