ESC-2+ Ethernet to Serial Converter
Ideal for large, multi-zone audio installations, the AD-16x provides routing for 16 audio sources to 16 zones.

The second generation ESC-2+ Ethernet to Serial Converter provides a convenient way to add two RS-232 ports to an RTI XP series control processor. Wire the ESC-2+ to the local Ethernet network for full two-way control, as if the device was wired directly to the control processor. Two built-in RJ-45 jacks and the included RJ-45 to DB9 adapters allow Cat-5 cabling between the ESC-2+ and the device being controlled.* This allows full RS-232 control virtually anywhere there is access to an Ethernet network connection. The ESC-2+ model includes a reset button, which allows the unit to be set back to default settings.

  • NOTE: Cabling from the ESC-2+ to the device being controlled is limited to 30−70 feet depending on baud rate and other factors.
