XP-8v Control Processor

The XP-8v is our most powerful system processor for control and automation of the most advanced smart homes, smart offices, and hospitality environments. The third generation of the popular XP-8 control processor, the XP-8v delivers maximum processing power, with an expanded number of inputs and outputs, including an HDMI output to enable an on-screen display (OCD) interface. The processor leverages the extensive RTI driver database to facilitate the integration of third-party devices for the smart home or smart business, such as audio and video distribution, lighting, shades, security, and HVAC.

Control is delivered via IP, RS-232, infrared, relays, and sensing to support the entire RTI ecosystem and connected subsystems, allowing for easy expansion using multiple processors and a complete line of accessory devices. The XP-8v programs quickly with Integration Designer programming software. Increased performance combined with a real-time/multitasking operating system, exceptional expandability, and compatibility with any RTI controller or app, make the XP-8v the perfect solution for large-scale and complex projects.

Integration Designer software is only available to authorized RTI dealers.

Included in the box:
XP-8v, power supply (12V, 1A), RJ45 to DB9 serial adaptor (8), rack ears (2) with screws, feet (4) with screws, terminal blocks (3x 4-position, 3x 2-position)

XP-8v Features

Convenient and reliable control with status feedback from controlled devices such as on/off or arm/disarm status, dimming value of lights, playlists, available stations.

Eight (8) control ports for 3-wire connection with the capability of polling status feedback from controlled devices or systems.

Eight (8) built-in low voltage dry contacts that provide contact closure or switching control for loads up to 3A/30VDC (external power supply required).

MPIO / Infrared
Eight (8) Multi-Purpose Input/Output control ports that allows for infrared control with infrared emitters, blasters and repeaters and connecting voltage sensors or RS-232 communication modules.

Sense Input / Voltage Trigger
Eight (8) programmable 100mA/2VDC outputs to control and high voltage external relay in amplifiers or other devices to turn them on or off when a sense input detects contact closure from switches, windows or doors or when the sense input reaches a voltage input threshold. Sense inputs can also be used to trigger a programmed control command or macro.

Expansion Port
Proprietary communication port that allows bidirectional control communication with RTI touchpanels and keypads.

Standard 10/100 BaseT network connection for bidirectional control communication with RTI remotes, touch panels and devices that are controlled over IP network.

Standard wireless Zigbee connection for bidirectional control communication with RTI remotes via ZM-24 Zigbee transceiver module.

RF 433 MHz
Wireless RF communication on the 433 MHz band for unidirectional control communication with RTI remotes.

HDMI Output
Connects to an HD display or matrix switch to allow an onscreen display (OSD) control interface.

Astronomical Clock
Built-in clock that syncs through an internet connection allows to schedule time-based events to automate all aspects of the installed environment, including climate, lighting, music, and much more.

Allows for mounting the unit into a standard 19” wide rack or placing on any surface using the included feet.
