Product Research

Features

Overview: The A-K3 amplified keypad is designed to integrate with any of the A-BUS system hubs. Keypads are typically mounted in the remote zones, giving you local control of that location. Each keypad also has an amplifier built-in to power the zone's speakers. Other features include:

  • Backlit: The buttons are backlit.
  • Power: The amplifier output is 7.5 watts RMS per channel (7.5 x 2) into 8Ω speakers. The recommended minimum impedance is also 8Ω. The AC current to power each amplifier is delivered via the CAT-5 cable.
  • Color: Out of the box a white insert is installed on the keypad. An ivory colored replacement insert is also included.
  • Controls: Basic functions are easily controlled by the keypad; power, source selection, volume, and balance (left/right). The entire system (all zones) can be turned off from any keypad. A sensor on the face of the keypad relays IR remote commands to the system hub, giving you more complete control of the system using an optional IR remote. The hub can also relay IR commands to your compatible source components via optional IR emitters.
  • Line Output: The keypad's line output allows adding an external amplifier or a powered subwoofer.
  • Mounting: The Decora style keypad mounts in a standard single-gang electrical box. Note: No Decora cover plate is included with the system.
