RTS presents the Zeus III LE+ compact digital intercom matrix at NAB 2012, booth C6008
  • Zeus III LE+ offers compact connectivity and simple scalability
  • Features include: two redundant power supplies, USB port, trunk capability, additional channels/ports, dual-channel party line interface, remote configuration, dynamic keypanel addressing, and two relays
Las Vegas, NV, April 16, 2012: RTS is pleased to present the new Zeus III LE+ compact digital intercom matrix at NAB 2012, a product that supersedes the popular Zeus and Zeus II matrix frames, taking their unique combination of connectivity and value to the next level.
Compact connectivity
Offering 16 channels IN/OUT and two configurable party line interface channels, Zeus III LE+ offers more options for smaller-scale applications. Ethernet and serial ports on the unit’s back panel allow it to be configured from virtually anywhere on a network using AZedit intercom configuration software, while a USB port on the front panel offers direct access with AZedit. The system also has 16 standard RJ45 connectors, making it easier to connect an intercom system with audio lines and keypanels by keeping the RTS wiring scheme. In addition, the two built-in relays can be used to control lighting or to key remote transmitters and paging systems, etc.
Simple scalability
Zeus III LE+ encapsulates the RTS philosophy of backwards compatibility and forward thinking, combining the flexibility of a networked matrix frame with the simplicity of a party line system. The system features a built-in party line interface that makes it compatible with all major party line systems, including RTS, Telex Audiocom, and Clear-Com®. Party line users who are beginning to outgrow their system will appreciate being able to connect the Zeus III LE+ and gain many expansion options without abandoning their current investment.
Key features:
Two redundant power supplies
The unit comes with two independent power supplies powered from separate AC feeds.
USB port
The USB port is used for system configuration using AZedit Intercom software.
Trunk capable
Zeus III LE+ can communicate with an RTS trunked system using the dedicated DB-9 trunk connector with standard RS485 protocol.
Additional channels/ports
Zeus III LE+ is a 16-channel intercom matrix – each channel can be used to connect to a keypanel or 4-W audio (Audio In & Out).
Dual-channel party line interface
Zeus III LE+ includes an interface for additional two channels of party line. From the front panel it can be configured for use with RTS TW, Telex Audiocom, or Clear-Com party line systems. No additional interfaces are necessary.
Remote configuration
With the addition of Ethernet to the unit, users can remotely configure Zeus III LE+.
Dynamic keypanel addressing
Zeus III LE+ automatically addresses keypanels when they are connected to the frame. This eliminates the need for setting keypanel addresses and maintaining port allocations.
Two relay connections are included, available on the back panel of the unit.
