PLEASE NOTE: the CNS1000 has been discontinued and it is not in stock anymore.


CNS1000 is a console that can be used for remote control of ELPRO matrix switchers which can be interfaced via RS232 serial line or on Ethernet network.

The operator interface consists of an alphanumeric display and a set of function keys used to send commands to the matrix switchers.

On an Ethernet network, it is possible to connect several CNS1000 consoles to manage a single matrix; management of various matrix switchers is also possible from the same console.

It is possible to create packets commands, by serial programming, that can be associated to the alphanumeric keys, to be sent to one or more machines.

The firmware can be updated, via RS232, so as to follow the evolution of ELPRO products or to implement new functions.
