AMX Updates Massio Firmware to Add Switching

HARMAN’s AMX Massio ControlPads now have new NetLinx programming capability that include the ability to integrate any controllable switching product.

Combining a wall- or lectern-mounted keypad, with the device and room control capabilities of a central controller, Massio is a control interface for meeting room and classrooms that’s available in six-button and eight-button configurations and Massio ControlPads each feature a built-in AMX controller. Available beginning in December 2015, this FOC update allows Massio users to choose between NetLinx programming as well as AMX’s Rapid Project Maker (RPM) cloud-configuration tool. A native NetLinx device, Massio ControlPads sit easily on the AMX Resource Management Suite (RMS) platform and, when using RPM configurator, can be fully integrated without any additional programming or coding.

Available in black or white, the sleek aesthetics that allow Massio ControlPads to blend seamlessly into any environment were inspired by AMX Modero X Series touch panels. Integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity simplifies installation, eliminates the need for a separate power cable and makes Massio connected devices instantly manageable. Both models are also extremely easy to navigate, with simple, LED-backlit push-buttons that glow blue to indicate activity. Massio 8-Button ControlPads also include a convenient rotary control knob with backlit level indicators to enable quick rotary adjustments of volume, lighting or other control aspects.

Here are all the details.
