Aurora Introduces DXB-8 Low-Cost Eight-Button, Single-Gang Wall Controller

aurora-controller-1215Aurora’s new DXB-8 has eight programmable buttons and two RS232 ports for controlling RS232 devices. Designed for classrooms and small conference rooms, the DXB-8 buttons can be configured for sending commands on both a press and/or release, for applications such as camera pan/tilt near/far commands, as well as press-and-hold functionality for volume ramping applications.

Each button can also be programmed as a toggle function sending a unique serial command on the first press and a totally different command on a second press (I.e. Display Power On and Display Power Off both under the same button). Each of the eight buttons are back-lit with programmable colors (red, green and blue). Different colors can be placed onto a single button showing one color on a press and another on a release or toggle between two as well. The DXB-8 comes in black and white with an assortment of laser-etched back-lit buttons.

With Aurora’s free DXI programming software, the DXB-8 can easily be programmed within a single page for easy viewing of the entire project. The DXB-8 also mates with Aurora’s award winning DXW-2 series HDBaseT wall plates allowing RS232 control via HDBaseT to the display over a single umbilical.
