Axium KPD LCD Display Keypad


Seriously clever, the KPD can be setup as an IR learning keypad to control almost any IR device available.

Then connect it to an Axium amplifier and get full 2 way feedback of power, source selection, mute and

volume levels.

The 1.5” colour screen provides plenty of viewing area for the customisable text and font size, even colour

and different languages can be used. For a touch of customisation, the background can be user defined

colours or images. Increase the AX-KPD functionality with the Axium AX-R4D/R1D, via the command matching

feature, and you have RS232 and IP control of 3rd party devices in an incredibly cost effective package. Put that

together with IR pass through, European (square) and International (rectangular) black and white cover plate

options that ship in the box, it can’t be touched for flexibility and performance
