The Crestron CP3N is an enterprise-class control system with a dedicated Control Subnet port. Designed for enhanced scalability, the CP3N affords high-speed, real-time multi-tasking to run multiple programs simultaneously. This modular programming architecture lets programmers independently develop and run device-specific programs for AV, lighting, shades, HVAC, security, etc., allowing for the optimization of each program, and allowing changes to be made to one program without affecting the whole.

More from Crestron on the 3 Series Control System:

3-Series unique distributed architecture enables multi-tasking, essential to an integrated building solution. Up to 10 programs can operate independently and simultaneously. The central logic engine facilitates rapid communication among all the programs so they function intelligently as a single system. In addition to the LAN port, PRO3, AV3 and CP3N 3-Series systems include a Control Subnet port. This is a powerful and distinctive feature that enables the entire Crestron ecosystem (all systems connected to the control system such as lighting, shades, thermostats, audio/video and security) to connect to the LAN/WAN using just one IP address. Also, the additional Subnet port establishes parallel control with IT networks, which maintains the performance, speed, reliability and security of each.

A neutral panel of experts, including three experienced integrators, chose the CP3N 3 Series from others in its category for the following reasons:

  • Onboard 512MB RAM & 4GB Flash memory
  • XPanel with Smart Graphics computer and web based control
  • iPhone, iPad, and Android control app support

AV-over-IP is gaining tremendous steam in the industry. Are you jumping on the bandwagon?
