Allen & Heath PL-6 Fader Plate Module
The PL-6 is ideal as a remote mix controller – typical applications include acting as a simple operator-controlled fader panel in an installed sound system, or providing musicians with control over their monitor speakers or in-ear monitors. It has 8 x 60mm faders, 24 tri-colour LEDs and 16 soft switches which are all programmable via iDR System Manager. PL-6 can also act as a basic lighting controller via MIDI/DMX, and the unit can be wall-mounted or flange-mounted into a table or wall.
The PL-6 is one of several remote control devices available for the iDR-4 and iDR-8 audio mix processor systems. It can be mounted into a plinth or custom furniture, or used free standing. A suitable template with cutting details is provided for custom application. The PL-6 interfaces with the Allen & Heath PL-Anet serial port. Multiple PL-6 units can be daisy chained together along with other PL-Anet devices using CAT5 cable. A terminator is provided for plugging into the last unit in the chain. The PL-6 control and indicator functions are programmed using the iDR System Manager software. Space is provided next to the controls for custom labelling. The PL-6 is ideal as a remote mix controller, for example as a simple operator controlled fader panel in an installed sound system, or as a personal musicians on-stage mix controller with in-ear monitors. The installer can program the unit according to the requirements of the application, providing the degree of control needed by the day to day operator.
