Meyer Sound RMServer Remote Monitoring System
System Management at Your Fingertips
Get the best out of your sound systems by reporting the exact status of every loudspeaker and how much power is being applied, at any time with Meyer Sound RMServer.
Powerful System Components
RMServer compact hardware, Compass software, and loudspeakers equipped with RMS modules create a system that is simple to configure and easy to use.
Tailored To Your Site
Applications include stadiums, arenas, concert halls, theatrical sound reinforcement, cinema installations, theme parks, and touring sound reinforcement.
Unprecedented Flexibility Based On Testing and Feedback
With the electronics and amplifiers located inside the cabinets, the need to monitor systems remotely requires a powerful tool: RMServer with Compass software.
Tools for Remote Monitoring Let You See and Know All
Easily locate any loudspeaker in the entire system, control solo or groups, and get extensive real-time loudspeaker feedback for amplifiers, drivers, limiting, cooling, and fault alerts.
RMServer offers email alerts of any issues with your system, so you can rest assured your system is being monitored, even when Compass software is not running.
The RMS module connects with RMServer and reports back to Compass software. Many Meyer Sound loudspeakers come automatically equipped with these modules, or they can be special-ordered and retrofitted as needed.
Upgrade For Expansion
Each RMServer will monitor up to 50 loudspeaker nodes when discovered by the Compass Software. Any system using older RMS equipped loudspeakers is compatible with RMServer so it’s simple to upgrade Legacy RMS networking hardware and software without replacing the loudspeakers.
RMServer is a compact hardware unit that runs RMS over Ethernet. Situated between the computer running Compass and the loudspeaker cabinets, RMServer’s two FT-10 ports can be connected to up to 50 RMS loudspeakers or 12 MPS-488HP power supplies. Since each MPS-488HP powers eight loudspeakers, one RMServer can monitor 96 48 V loudspeakers connected to MPS-488HPs that are equipped with the RMS option.
RMServer Remote Monitoring Server DATASHEET RMServer stores system configurations internally, eliminating most manual data entry. A system can be monitored from a laptop at front-of-house or backstage, or via a tablet computer as the engineer or system tech moves around the venue.
RMServer offers email alerts of any issues with your system, so you can rest assured your system is being monitored, even when Compass is not running. The integration of RMS into Compass control software puts all your system management tools right at your fingertips—from controlling Galileo or Callisto processors and CAL loudspeakers to remote monitoring with Compass RMS. With each loudspeaker storing its own ID internally and RMServer storing system configurations, setting up an RMS system in Compass is quick and easy.
The complete remote monitoring system shall be based on a client server architecture consisting of a standalone remote monitoring server device that connects and monitors FT-10 equipped loudspeaker devices. to a Ethernet network capable computer and is controlled by Compass Software. The remote monitoring server shall be called RMServer.
Meyer Sound RMServer is a central component of the system that connects the computer running Compass on Mac or Windows and loudspeakers equipped with RMS module.The Meyer Sound RMServer can connect directly with computer or connect to a network switch if more than one unit is required. The Ethernet connection allows host computer to remotely control RMServer.
Meyer Sound RMServer is equipped with two-conductor twistedpair network and reports all operating parameters of amplifiers to the host computer running Compass. Each RMServer can support up to 50 single node active loudspeakers, 25 dual node active loudspeakers or 12 MPS-488HP remote power supplies that are equipped with an RMS module. RMServer integrates one 6-pin Phoenix connector with two optically isolated inputs for receiving contact closures for external muting and one 6-pin Phoenix connector with two relay contacts for external muting and/or fault reports. The relay contacts can be wired as normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC).
The front panel of the unit contains a recessed Reset button and illuminated LED indicators for fault, RMS TP/FT-10 receive, client connect, Ethernet, and power. The unit shall be housed in a 0.5-space, 8.5 inch rack mount, measuring 7.23 inch in depth, weighting 3.78 lbs. Removable feet are included. Optional rack tray allows the Meyer Sound RMServer to be installed in an equipment rack and a wall mount kit is also available. Its AC inlet shall be powerCON 20.
