RDNet Control 8 8 Output Master Network Hub


RCF's RDNet Control 8 is a real-time monitor and control system able to manage up to 256 devices linked in a bus or up to 128 devices in a ring topology.

All the data collected from the slaves are delivered to the sound engineer by USB in a local installation or by Ethernet from remote locations.

The interface can be directly connected to the DSP on board of every TT+ line array module through the exclusive RDNet protocol making it possible to address in single cabinets or groups, specific presets or modification parameters in real-time.  The key point of RDNet Control 8, in fact, is to ensure minimum refresh time (at least 5 per second) of all the system data performance, for example: RMS signals, compressor activity, temperature, fans speed, warnings, etc.

Data transfer can be routed also through the provided XLR connectors enabling the control of the system on traditional multi-cored cables.
