BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US, Ethernet Controller with 8 Buttons and Volume (Black - US)

The color black Soundweb Contrio BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US is an Ethernet wall controller for use in Harman HiQnet systems. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US has capable to control and monitor the parameters within BSS Audio Soundweb London and other HiQnet devices, including Crown DCi series amplifiers. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US is a dual-gang US Decora or dual-gang EU form factor. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US also contains a single Ethernet port for configuration, control, monitoring and power via PoE. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US can easily configured via simple drag-and-drop operations within the software application HiQnet Audio Architect.

Another unique features of the BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US is the one push/rotary encoder, one encoder ring, eight buttons, and two LCD screens. The buttons, encoder ring, and LCD screens are multi-color backlit, capable of 8 different colors and can adjust the intensity. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US push/rotary encoder can be rotated for continous parameter control (e.g. volume) Also, the push/rotary encoder can also be pressed for binary parameter control (e.g. mute) or preset recall. The encoder ring can display a bouncing audio meter. When the push/rotary encoder is rotated, the encoder ring can temporarily display a volume setting. When the push/rotary encoder is pressed, the encoder ring can temporarily display a binary parameter setting (e.g. red/green for muted/unmuted status).

The eight buttons of the BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US can be pressed for binary parameter control (e.g. mute), preset recall, or source selection. The two LCD screens each have a screen resolution of 64x128 pixels, and can each display custom text. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US supports ‘sleep’ functionality. After a specified amount of time with no user input, the EC-8BV can turn off all LEDs. This is useful to avoid distraction in a dimly lit environment. Any user interaction will ‘wake up’ the controller. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US also has a unique remotely locked and unlocked via other control systems. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US can be locally unlocked via a four-digit PIN entry on the buttons. The BSS EC-8BV-BLK-US also supports multiple modes of operation. This allows the push/rotary encoder, encoder ring, and certain buttons to be reassigned dynamically to different parameters based on which buttons are selected.
