Touchscreen Remote Control DR6 Rane.
The DR (digital remote) models are designed to control HAL in various ways: volume setting, preset recall, source selection, or reset / toggle system states. The DR1, DR2, DR3 and DR6 allow customizing labels for end users, while the DR4 and DR5 offer incorporating custom switches and other devices to control HAL. Status indicators on each HAL or EXP host, and in Halogen software, report wiring status to assist troubleshooting. All are hot-swappable with homerun connections using shielded CAT 5e (or better) cable. DRs get their control functions from the HAL port they are connected to, which eliminates individual addressing. DRs connect to either a DR port (brown) or a RAD port (blue) on the rear of a HAL or EXP.
While the RADs have a 150 meter (500 foot) maximum distance, any DR (except the DR6) can run up to 300 meters (1,000 feet) away from its HAL. It's possible to increase distance by connecting a DR to a EXP1x, EXP3x, or EXP5x Expander, which is another 100 meters (300 feet) from a HAL1x, thereby increasing to 400 meter (1,300 feet) maximum distance from the HAL1x to the DR. Greater distances can be accomplished using Expanders with Gbit Ethernet media converters and fiber optic cable.
