Extron has started shipping eight eBUS button panels and two accessories. eBUS button panels are customizable and integration-friendly AV system control interfaces that work with any IPCP Pro control processor. Multiple eBUS button panels may be linked together by a single cable that carries both power and communication. A variety of mounting options, including Extron’s new Flex55 mounting systems, provide easy integration worldwide. Buttons for most eBUS products can be easily customized using Extron Button Label Generator software or by using the online Custom Button Builder application. eBUS accessories include distribution hubs, power supplies, and mounting products that streamline integration and bring additional design flexibility to any system.
Extron’s eBUS technology is based on a digital bus architecture that Extron says allows for easy control system expansion, greater design options, and future upgrades. As with our TouchLink Pro touchpanels, eBUS button panels are designed for use with any Extron IPCP Pro Series control processor. Since they have the same physical appearance as Extron’s broad range of MediaLink controllers, eBUS button panels can be used alongside them throughout a facility while preserving a consistent look and user experience. A single eBUS button panel can be used as the AV control interface for a smaller system or multiple button panels and touchpanels may be combined when a more elaborate control system is required. Powered and non-powered eBUS distribution hubs are available to accommodate a variety of system design topologies.
