The PL-6 is ideal as a remote mix controller - e.g. as a simple
operator-controlled fader panel in an installed sound system, or as a
personal musician’s on-stage mix controller with in-ear
has 8 faders, 24 tri-colour LEDs and 16 soft switches which are all
programmable via iDR System Manager. Other examples for use include as
a basic lighting controller via MIDI/DMX, and the unit can be
wall-mounted or flange-mounted into a table or wall.

As the requirements grow at an installation, the control system can too! Start off with just the controls and display on the iDR unit then add wall mounted plates and handheld remotes wherever they are needed using our CAT5 PL-Anet cabling system. PL remotes can simply daisy chain or use the PL-Anet hub for star wiring applications.
LEDs in the system can be tri-colour status indicators [to indicate selected sources, or mutes] or they can become meters for any point in the signal flow. The LCD windows can easily be programmed to relay text information about the state of the system. You, as the designer, can customize these plug and play remotes to do exactly what the customer has been looking for.
Each PL has its own simulator in iDR system manager software so you can design and demo the system offline as it will appear when the hardware is in place.
PL-Calculator is an Excel-based program which enables the installer to verify that a planned system with specified PL devices and interconnect distances over PL-Anet conforms to the system specification. The program is bundled together with the iDR System Manager software.
