The Axium R4D Controller


Unlocking the full potential of the KPC and KPD keypads and enhancing both the Android

and Apple experience.

The AX-R4D facilitates 2-way communication between the KPC2.8-IP, KPD, Mobile

Android and iOS devices and a wide range of 3rd party products bringing Metadata back

from these devices to the end user.

Axium Legacy ports to allow for easy integration with KPD keypads or IRFX3. It can also be used to power the KPC2.8-IP when a PoE source is not available. Cable runs of up to 100 meters are achievable for the KPD and IRFX3.

With 4x DALI controller (256 DALI devices), 2 way routed RS232, Ethernet, routed IR, realtime clock with internet lookup, Analog level detect inputs, command match triggers and relay drivers, the power of 2 way communication is realised in this powerful package.

The addition of AX-S4 sensors provides detection of Audio, Video or Current enabling enhanced flag control.

Android/iOS 2 way Axium amplifier feedback, Android/iOS Full applet support, 2 way Scripting functionality for all devices.

Features and Benefits:

  • 4x DALI Control ports (up to 256 DALI devices)
  • 1x Ethernet RJ45 port: 10/100Mbs, DHCP or Fixed IP
  • Maximum of 32 IP connections
  • Configurable IP code specific detection triggers.
  • 4 x Dedicated RS232 DB9 port, max throughput = 115 k baud port(s) may be configured with code specific detection triggers
  • 4 x IR emitter output / sensor inputs: 3.5mm jacks.
    These jacks work concurrently as an IR output and sensor input. The IR port(s) route IR signals from a specific keypad port(s) or from the R4D controllers IR generator. The Sensor input(s) may be configured as level or frequency threshold triggers.
  • 4 x IR emitter outputs: 3.5mm jacks (more IR ports can be added via a EX4 but without routing)
  • Port activity LED indication on each IR port and each RS232 comms port
  • Real time internal clock, with setup & synchronisation via internet including astronomical clock and time based scheduled tasks backed up by a super cap which can keep it running for several days if power is lost.
  • 2 x Analogue level threshold triggers: 0 - 10V. Inputs may also be configured as frequency threshold triggers.
  • DIN mount compatible
  • 2 x 12VDC Relay drivers: 300mA max active pull down.
  • 2x Axium RJ45 port: For connection to an Axium AX-KPC2.8-IP, AX-KPD keypad, or IRFX3 receiver.
  • IR Learning Receiver Power LED - with activity indication
  • Powered by 12VDC 1A power supply
  • USB port for programming and Firmware Updates
