The MPC3-201-B is a wall-mounted, PoE powered 3-Series® control system and panel in one. Its modern appearance and customizable backlit capacitive buttons provide an ideal user interface for controlling AV and other functions. It offers fully-programmable functionality, supports web and cloud-based configuration and management, and integrates with Crestron Fusion® software as part of a complete managed enterprise solution.
Crestron® MPC3 series controllers are perfect for classrooms, meeting rooms, lecture halls, and training facilities – wherever a simple yet powerful controller is needed but space is limited. Use the MPC3-201-B to control a video display or AV system, adjust lighting and window shades, or any other custom application.
The MPC3-201-B is designed for flush-mount installation in a wall using a 1-gang European electrical box. It can also be installed in a podium with no back box, or placed on a table using the optional tabletop kit. A retrofit mounting bracket is also available to allow installation over a 2-gang US electrical box, which offers an easy upgrade solution for replacing an older MPC-M5 series controller.
Customizable Backlit Capacitive Buttons:
The MPC3-201-B features six backlit capacitive buttons, which can each be labeled using the icon chips provided, or custom labeled using laser-engravable chips (sold separately). Each button is backlit blue when active and white when inactive to provide clear indication of what media source or lighting scene is currently selected. Four additional buttons are included at the bottom along with a volume gauge for control of volume, mute, and power. A key click sound can be enabled to provide audible assurance when any button is pressed.
All buttons on the MPC3-201-B are custom programmable to control any device or function. Button backlighting can be set to dim or turn off when idle. Built-in proximity sensing wakes the buttons as you approach, and autobrightness control maintains optimal visibility of the buttons under varying lighting conditions..
No Rack Required:
The MPC3-201-B encapsulates the industry’s best control technologies in one compact wall mount device. High-speed Ethernet provides the essential interface for connecting to the building network and controlling Crestron AV switchers, audio processors, and other IP controllable equipment. Expanded connectivity is available using a DIN-CENCN-2-POE Ethernet to Cresnet® bridge, CEN-GWEXER or CENI-GWEXER infiNET EX® wireless gateway, CEN-CI3-1-POE or CEN-CI3-3 control card interface, or CEN-IO-COM-102, CEN-IO-COM-202, CEN-IO-DIGIN-104, CEN-IO-DIGIN-204, CEN-IO-IR-104 CEN-IO-IR-204, CEN-IO-RY-104, or CEN-IO-RY-204 wired and wireless Ethernet modules, enabling integration with Crestron and third-party devices.
