Introduction / Overview

The CT-1IR integrator is the keystone to anymulti-CTReceiver install. A singleCT-1can integrate control for up to three CT Receivers, one B&K Home Theater preamplifier/receiver, nine shared sources and one CK1.2 Keypad. TheCT-1uses IR as the communication interface between units, it can also passRS-232for control of a Home Theater piece. Should future expansion be desired, aCT-1easily allows additional CT Receivers to be added to the whole house system. Up to 11CT-1IR Integrators can be combined to accommodate 21 CT Receivers or 126 zones. TheCT-1can be thought of as the common hub for IR control of the entire CT system. Each source is connected directly to theCT-1along with any CT Receivers installed in the system. All zones will have the ability to control all nine sources when theCT-1is used.

One CT-1IR Routing System Integrator provides a system with connections for up to:

One B&K Home Theater Preamplifier or Receiver with Keypads

And

Three CT610/600/310 Multi-ZoneReceivers with Keypads

And

Nine shared sources.

Some additional features and benefits associated with the CT-1are as follows:

1.Multiple CT Receivers are flawlessly controlled using IR from any or all of the CT610/600/310 multizone receiver keypads.

2.The B&K Home Theater CK1.2 Keypad or SR10.1 Remote control can be programmed to control any source or zone in the system.

3.Up to 7 non-identicalsources can be shared between the Theater Zone and the rest of the house zones. The entire system can also be controlled directly from the Theater Zone using theCT-1.

4.Any keypad in any zone can be programmed to control any other zone, including the B&K Home Theater and Whole House.

5.In the case that additional zones wish to be added, the CT-1allows for easy future hardware expansion of additional CT Receivers and source gear.

WARNING: to prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture. Care should be taken to prevent objects or liquid from entering the enclosure.

The lightning flash with arrowhead, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user of the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's enclosure that may constitute a risk of electric shock to you.

The exclamation point, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user of the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the unit.

Caution: To prevent the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover. No userserviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.

Unplug the CT-1'spower when plugging in or unplugging cables, when left unused for an extended period of time, or when you suspect lightning in your area.

The CT-1should be located away from sources of heat.

Do not perform any internal modifications to the CT-1.

If young children are present, adult supervision should be provided until the children are capable of following all rules for safe operation.

The CT-1should be serviced by qualified personnel when:

A.The CT-1is not functioning properly.

B.Objects have entered the chassis.

C.The CT-1was exposed to rain or other type of moisture.

D.The CT-1was dropped, or the chassis is damaged.

2.RS-232 XMIT (Output)- RJ45 connector used for directRS-232linking between a CT

Receiver and B&K A/V Home Theater preamplifier/receiver. Install a straight through CAT-5cable when using this connection.

Note: This connector is intended for RS-232XMIT and Ground and is not a source of VCC power.

3.HOME THEATER SENSOR - 3 pin Phoenix plug for connecting to an IR Sensor or Keypad.

+12V - +12V power available for Home Theater IR Sensor or Keypad IR IN - IR DATA IN from Home Theater IR Sensor or Keypad

GND - Common ground for power and data

Note: Both of the CT-1HOME THEATER IR data inputs(IR-INand IN), are summed together internally.

4.CT 3 Flasher IN - Nine 1/8" mini connectors. One CT Receiver is connected by nine 1/8” mini jack interconnects. Each interconnect should be connected corresponding with the IR output on the CT Receiver back panel. i.e. IR OUT 1 connects to Flasher IN 1, etc. These inputs are also used when chaining multipleCT-1’s.

5.CT 3 / Chain Out - One 1/8" mono mini connector. To be used with an IR emitter for control of a CT Reciever. This output is a sum of IR Data fromCT-1,CT-2,Home Theater and Chain IN.

This output is used when chaining CT-1sto send IR to the previousCT-1in the chain.

6.CT 2 Flasher IN - Nine 1/8" mini connectors. One CT Receiver is connected by nine 1/8” mini jack interconnects. Each interconnect should be connected corresponding with the IR output on the CT Receiver back panel. i.e. IR OUT 1 connects to Flasher IN 1, etc.
