The RM-433 contains a microprocessor that monitors all received signals so that RF noise and data from non-RTI transmitters is filtered out. When valid RTI data is detected, the RM-433 passes the signal through its output driver which allows the data to travel long distances over wire. The output driver is compatible with industry standard infrared repeating systems*, and can be wired together with those systems or with additional RM-433 units. This allows RTI control systems to be controlled from almost any location with either IR or RF transmitters.
The RM-433 does not directly control A/V components — it is for communicating trigger codes to RTI control processors only. Use of second party infrared repeater systems may be used between the RM-433 and RTI control processor as a path for the RTI trigger code only. A 433MHz remote control must be used with this model of antenna. It is not compatible with the 2.4 GHz Zigbee® enabled remote controls.
