AXB-TCandAXB-TCRTelevision Controllers

AXB-TCandAXB-TCRTelevision Controllers

Overview

The AXB-TCandAXB-TCRTelevision Controllers are intelligent,microprocessor-controlledsystems equipped with a lithium battery to protect stored memory. The television controllers can control a variety ofInfrared-controlleddevices such as televisions, audio receivers, and videocassette recorders.

FIG. 1 shows the front and rear panels of theAXB-TCR.With the exception of the IR Input Window (on theAXB-TCRonly), the TC and TCR share the same front and rear panel components.

AXB-TCandAXB-TCRTelevision Controllers

Specifications

The following table list the product specifications for the television controllers. Other than the IR Input Window (on the AXB-TCRonly), the specifications for the TC and TCR are identical.

AXB-TC/TCRSpecifications

Dimensions (HWD):

 

(with connectors)

• 1.29" x 3.33" x 5.54" (32.8 mm x 84.6 mm x 140.6 mm)

 

 

Power consumption:

200 mA @ 12 VDC

 

 

Front Panel Components:

 

 

 

LED indicators

• AXlink LED (green and blinks to indicate AXlink communication activity

 

and power:

 

Full-Offindicates no power is being received or the controller is not

 

functioning properly.

 

• One blink per second indicates power is active and AXlink

 

communication is functioning.

 

Full-Onindicates there is no AXlink control or activity, but power is On.

 

IR Out: Red LED blinks when the television controller transmits IR or

 

serial (outgoing) signals.

 

One blink every 2 seconds: The AXB-TC/TCRprogram is not loaded.

 

TV Sensor: Red LED that lights when the television controller receives,

 

via the CC-IRTV Sensor, the correct horizontal scan frequency signal

 

indicating television or monitor power is on.

 

This LED also lights when the television controller receives a power on

 

status from an AMX PCS Power Control Sensor.

 

One blink every 2 seconds: The AXB-TC/TCRprogram is not loaded

DEVICE DIP switch

8-positionDIP switch that sets the AXlink device number on theAXB-TC

 

and AXB-TCR.

IR Input Window (AXB-TCRonly)

Receives 38 kHz IR-controlsignals from AMX transmitters.

 

The IR input window contains a red LED that lights when receiving IR-

 

control data.

IR Compatibility (AXB-TCRonly)

AMX wireless IR control panels and hand-heldtransmitters (38 kHz only)

 

 

Rear Panel components:

 

 

 

TV Sensor connector

2-pin(male) connector that supports horizontal scan frequency sensing

 

up to 65 kHz with a CC-IRTV Sensor. The connector can also be used

 

with a PCS (Power Current Sensor) to detect television power status (on

 

or off).

TV Sensor POT

Sets the sensitivity to the PCS. You may need to adjust this POT to allow

 

the PCS to detect the television's power status (on or off).

IR Emitter connector

2-pin(male) connector that transmits IR control signals to a television

 

using the CC-IRCIR Emitter cables. The connector also supports trans-

 

mitting serial control data to an external device.

AXlink connector

4-pin(male) connector that supports AXlink control data communication.

PWR connector

2-pin(male) connector that connects to an external 12 VDC power sup-

 

ply. Refer to theWiring section on page 7 for external power supply

 

requirements.

 

 

Enclosure:

Plastic with black matte finish

 

 

Weight:

6 oz. (170 grams)
