DESCRIPTION:
The CNRFT-32A/CNIRT-32A and CNRFT-48A/CNIRT-48A are a new improved version of CRESTRON's
one-way wireless panels. The new "A" units are functionally identical to the non-"A" units, but the newer
units have been completely redesigned for greater ease of installation and maintenance. The manual rotary
switches for ID code setting have been eliminated and replaced by a software utility program available
from CRESTRON's Workshop. The radio-frequency (RF) code packets have been updated to include error
detection for higher reliability reception. The new improved one-way wireless panels must be used with
CRESTRON's new CNRFGWA or CNIRGWA receiver. The standard, high-quality non-"A" version
transmitters must continue to use the CNRFGW or CNIRGW.
Functional Description
CNRFT-32A/-48A
The CNRFT series of portable RF wireless panels, figure 1, is designed to operate with the CRESNET II
system with the use of a wireless receiver such as the CNRFGWA network unit. Up to 32 miniature
pushbuttons reside on the CNRFT-32A to provide direct user interface. The CNRFT-48A offers up to 48
miniature pushbuttons.
CNIRT-32A/-48A
The CNIRT series of portable infrared (IR) wireless panels, figure 1, is designed to operate with the
CRESNET II system with the use of a wireless receiver such as the CNIRGWA network unit. Up to 32
miniature pushbuttons reside on the CNIRT-32A to provide direct user interface. The CNIRT-48A offers
up to 48 miniature pushbuttons.

Physical Description
CNRFT-32A/48A and CNIRT-32A/48A electronic hardware is housed in a high-impact molded plastic
enclosure (refer to figures 1 and 2 for front and back views, respectively ). The button array on the printed
circuit board is covered by a customized button panel. All button panels include custom engraving, colored
button caps, choice of button configurations, and panel finishes. Refer to the latest version of the
CRESNET II Engraving Worksheet for the wireless transmitters (Doc. 5242 and Doc. 5243) to design a
unique button panel. Omission of unused buttons is standard. A red transmit LED is located above the
button panel cover.

A standard nine-volt battery is included with all units. Access to the battery is permitted after the
battery cover, located on the underside of the unit, is removed. A sensor (photo transistor) used to
program an identity code is also located in the battery compartment.
Configuration Differences
The RF and IR one-way wireless transmitters have two different configurations based on the maximum
number of buttons available on the customized panel. They are depicted in table 1.

NOTE
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
-
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
-
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.

CONTROLS AND INDICATORS:
Controls
Button controls are custom designed. The wireless transmitters are available with a maximum of 32 to
48 functional buttons (depending on the model). Function definition is determined by application of the unit
within the CRESNET II system. The customized button controls correspond to signal names that are
defined in the SIMPL program.
Indicators
There is only one indicator located on the wireless transmitters. The indicator is a red LED and resides on
the face of the unit above the button panel cover. The transmit LED indicates IR/RF transmission and
illuminates when a button is depressed.
INSTALLATION/SETUP:
Every wireless transmitter communicating with either the CNRFGWA or CNIRGWA requires a unique
identity code (ID CODE). For RF devices the ID CODE is referred to as RF ID. For IR devices the ID CODE is
referred to as IR ID. There are 254 possible two-digit hexadecimal alphanumeric codes ranging from 01 to
FE. The CNRFT/CNIRT ID CODE is factory set to 11, but may be changed from a PC via CRESTRON's
CRESNET II Workshop. An ID CODE may need to be changed if more than one transmitter is placed on the
network. To maintain code diversity within the CRESNET II system, use codes between 10 and FE for the
transmitters.
NOTES
1.
The ID CODE on the wireless transmitters is factory set to 11.
2.
If an ID CODE needs to be changed, do not use 00 or FF as an RF/IR ID.
3.
Do not confuse RF/IR ID with network (NET) ID.
The following items are required to change the wireless transmitter ID CODE:
•
PC running CRESNET II Workshop, version 5.0 or later.
•
CNIDC - Identity Code cable.
Complete the following steps in the order provided to ensure proper ID CODE assignment of the unit.
1.
Start up the CRESNET II Workshop with the following DOS commands.
CD\CN2 (depress ENTER)
CNWS (depress ENTER)
2. The Workshop commences with an opening screen. Depress any key to open the MAIN MENU,

Connect the 9-pin DIN connector from the CNIDC to the proper COM port on the back of the PC. Use
the same port as that assigned in the previous step.
7.
Position the transmitter button-side down so the battery compartment is accessible.
8.
Remove the battery cover to expose the battery compartment. Refer to figure 2.
9.
Place LED probe from the CNIDC over the exposed sensor (photo transistor) as shown in figure 6. The

above the button panel is visible.
11. From the PC, type the two-digit hexadecimal ID CODE.
12. Depress the ENTER key and observe the flashing red LED on the front of the transmitter.
13. When the red LED stops flashing, remove the probe from the back of the unit. The ID CODE is
programmed into the transmitter.
14. Secure the battery cover over the battery compartment.
15. Disconnect the CNIDC from the PC.
PROGRAMMING:
The button array is located beneath the custom button panel of each wireless transmitter. Refer to figure
1 for the location of the SIMPL-C button numbers and their corresponding button positions for the CNIRT
and CNRFT transmitters. The numbering for each button is constant. For each button input, a signal name
must be defined in the SIMPL program. Unused buttons need not be assigned signal names. The following
example illustrates button definition of the CNRFT-32A and CNIRT-32A in the CRESNET II Workshop.
Access the following tables from the "Define Network" section of the SIMPL-I Menu. Aside from
difference in nomenclature, the Workshop menus of the CNRFT-48A and CNIRT-48A are identical.
