|Overview||The Rane CP66 is a multiple-input Commercial Zone Processor with paging support. Designed for versatility, it is perfect for use in restaurants, bars, offices, retail stores, stadiums, and other types of multi-zone environments.
With six Program inputs, six linkable Zone outputs, Page input, and support for the Rane PAGER2, DR1, and DR3 Digital Remotes, a multitude of system configurations are possible.
The CP66 can be configured entirely using its intuitive front panel controls, and easily set up by a technician in any location without a computer. Included Windows software (connected through USB) provides the additional ability to save and load preconfigured settings for easy deployment, and also allows custom Zone and Group naming.
Any of the six Program inputs can be assigned to each Zone. Program Input 6 can act optionally as a gated Priority Input for use with a jukebox or notification system.
Each Zone features independent settings for:
Priority input Enable
Page inputs are priority controlled, so a high priority input will always override the other. If Page priorities are equal, then both can be used simultaneously.
Page 1 supports an analog line or mic level input with selectable 24 V phantom power, and is assigned to Zones via a rear panel dipswitch.
Page 2 supports the optional Rane PAGER2 paging station, allowing dynamic Zone selection right at the microphone, and can store preset groups for even easier page selection. The PAGER2 connects via a single standard CAT 5 cable. See details via the link at the left. (Mic not included with PAGER2.)
Zones may be linked into groups via rear panel switches. When linked, the Level and Source as well as any connected Remote controls are set to the same value for each Zone in the group. This allows simple but powerful linking scenarios without the need for complicated software.
The Rane Digital Remote DR1 adds remote control of Zone (or linked group) Output Level, optionally limited by configurable max and min values. The DR3 adds Input Source selection along with Level, and can be a Master Level control displaying and controlling all six Zone levels from a single location. Custom Digital Remote display names can be set in the PC software. See details via the links at the left.
Independent Accelerated-Slope 3-band tone controls for each zone allow easy intuitive adjustment. The tone controls use 12 dB per octave Linkwitz-Riley filters with a range of +/-6 dB.
A dedicated transformer-isolated output delivers any Program input source to music-on-hold in a telephone system.
System security can be enabled from a local or remote switch. Options include full CP66 front panel lockout, allowing only front panel zone control, and remote muting.
The Rane CP66 includes an internal 100-240 VAC power supply and is CSA approved.
