The MRF-350 is the versatile companion RF base station for URC’s many narrow band remote controls. The MRF-350 receives Narrow Band RF (radio frequency) signals via the RFX-250 RF Sensor (antenna module). The RFX-250 displays RF interference via a bright red LED which flickers when interference is present. Simply relocate the RFX-250 out of the interference area to resolve the problem. The base station features six adjustable (variable) line outputs which provide an additional degree of fine tuning for devices susceptible to IR overload. The MRF-350’s rear panel also includes an IR input which will relay IR data from IR repeaters or multi-zone keypads to all IR line outputs (does not support IR routing).
URC’s Narrow Band capability facilitates significant installation advantages. In addition to improving devices’ range and reliability, it improves spurious adjacent signal rejection, ignoring unneeded signals. This allows the MRF-350 to operate equipment in up to 15 locations, like a training room or a boardroom, anywhere in the office just install an MRF-350 at each location. You can expand the range by adding additional RFX-250 RF Sensors in remote areas. The MRF-350 can power up to three RFX-250 RF Sensors connected in parallel to the RF Input connector.
You can control six identical components or zones—up to fifteen MRF-350s in the same installation. The MRF-350 has six “addressable” IR Line Outputs. For example, you can control up to six identical TVs with one MRF-350 or route volume commands for a specific zone to a particular zone IR input on a multi-zone pre-amp. If you have more than six identical components or zones, up to 15 MRF-350s can be separately installed to control them—thereby allowing up to 90 identical components or zones in one house.
The MRF-350 eliminates the line-of-sight requirement for your clients, allowing them to experience true “Barrier Free” control.
Boardrooms, sophisticated restaurant/lounge, training room/classroom, SoHo.
Install with any URC RF compatible remote control. Note that the MRF-350 and MRF-350i differ only in transmission frequency (MRF-350i is 433MHz, MRF-350 is 418MHz); however, i-series controllers must be matched with i-series base stations.
