High-Performance Automation Controllers
Control4 announced two models to its family of automation controllers: the HC-800 and the HC-250. The HC-800 is a flexible, multi-zone controller designed to serve as the cornerstone of any Control4 installation. The HC-800 has a 1.8GHz high-performance dual-core processor and is rack-mountable, measuring 1RU, with two RS-232 ports, six IR ports, and four contact and relay switches. It also features enough analog and digital outputs to deliver four independent zones of audio without the help of a secondary media player. The HC-250 also joins the controller family with a 1GHz processor and Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability enabled by a single CAT5 cable. The HC-250 supports both digital audio and video over HDMI, and boasts integrated Wireless-N Wi-Fi and ZigBee for high-performance wireless networking.
