The PL-10 is a compact mixer interface
with 8 rotary encoders and LED
ladder displays, making it possible to mix live events within the iDR system. It's ideal for creating and controlling an output mix of cross-point groups. The PL-10 can be assigned to read and adjust different mixes, as the LED
bars indicate the levels managed by the iDR unit. The unit can be hand-held, or flange-mounted into a table or wall. As the PL-10 has encoders rather than faders, it can respond to changes in levels made from other controllers.
The PL-10 adds to the extensive range of remote control devices available for the iDR-4
and iDR-8 audio
mix processor systems. It offers an alternative to the PL-6 fader
controller with the advantage that user settings can be stored and recalled without the need to physically move the controls to the new settings. It can be mounted into a plinth or custom furniture, or used free standing. Template cutting details are provided for custom application. The PL-10 interfaces with the Allen & Heath PL-Anet serial port. Multiple
PL-10 units can be daisy chained together along with other PL-Anet devices using CAT5
cable. A terminator
is provided for plugging into the last unit in the chain. The PL-10 control and indicator functions are programmed using the iDR System Manager software. Space is provided next to the controls for custom labelling.
The PL-10 is ideal as a remote mix controller, for example as a simple operator controlled mix panel in an installed sound
system, or as a personal musicians on-stage
mix controller for in-ear monitors
. The installer can program the unit according to the requirements of the application, providing the degree of control needed by the day
8 Rotary Encoders can be configured individually for continuous input, output, group, crosspoint level
control or monitor level
. Minimum and maximum ranges can be set. Each rotary encoder
has 8 LEDs
displaying the control position.
16 Switches, arranged as two per rotary encoder
, can be configured as combinations of level
monitor select, or preset recall. 24 LED
indicators, arranged as three per fader
, can be configured as combinations of 3 colour signal meters
on indication, level
sensing or preset related 3 colour LED
indication. Controls can be disabled if not required. A single 3 colour Status LED
displays PLAnet power
and communication status. Custom labels can be fitted into the recessed areas provided (13 x 7mm).
