BKS-R1617A (BKSR1617A)Discontinued

Multi-Display Control Unit


The BKS-R1617 multi-display control unit controls matrix cross points in routers connected to an S-BUS system. The BKS-R1617 also controls the monitoring output of routers that have this facility.
Source and destination switching is performed with 16 buttons, whose functions are pre-defined with the control terminal connected to the primary station of the S-BUS system. The monitoring signal can also be selected as a destination signal.
The shallow depth of the unit makes it easy to accommodate the BKS-R1617 in front
of a desk-mounted switcher control panel.
