Welcome to The
System Design Library
Dewey Decimal System? No.
Complete More Systems in Less Time? Undoubtedly.
• Marketing / Sales Brochures – Single sheet brochures for each SDL are a
simple leave-behind for your customer to quickly and easily understand how
control systems can benefit their businesses or homes.
Introducing the industry’s first System Design Library (SDL) – a bounty of
sales tools designed to simplify the way control systems are sold to key vertical
markets. We have developed pre-packaged solutions based on the most popular
control and automation systems.
A - Touch Panel Interface Images
Each library includes all the materials you need to find the right solution for your
customer, customize the proposal, and even generate the job estimate - all in half
the time it takes to do it from scratch.
B - Button Descriptions
These sample touch panel images display
the user friendly graphic icons the
customer will use to control their system.
Each of these descriptions explains what
each of the buttons (DVD, Lights, Climate)
on the touch panel will do when pressed.
B
Interested in selling to new markets? No problem. AMX SDLs provide all the
resources you need for start-to-finish sales in a variety of markets.
Open the online VisualArchitect
Sales Assistant at amx.com to
select and customize your system.
The Assistant walks you through the
process of gathering all your
customers’ requirements.
But the best part is what happens
next. Simply hit the done button and
the VisualArchitect Sales Assistant automatically generates an excel file,
complete with everything you just entered, and formatted as a proposal.

achieves the same capability as the NXI Controller and NetLinx Master260 Card – at a
substantially lower price. The NI-3100 offers higher performance with a faster
processor, 64MB of onboard RAM, 128MB Compact FLASH and is Duet-enabled.

NXA-WAP250G
Small, Clear,
Strong & Secure
WAP-What A Product!
The all-new NXA-WAP250G 802.11b/g Wireless Access Point is small
on size and big on features by combining an easily hidden form factor,
integrated antenna, advanced WPA2/WPA encryption capabilities and
multiple VLAN support.
Standards, Standards and More Standards
The AMX Wi-Fi certified WAP incorporates wireless encryption
standards such as enterprise-grade WPA2, WPA, 802.1x, MAC
address filtering and 64-bit/128-bit WEP encryption.
Multiple VLANs – Separate and Secure Networking For All
With support for multiple VLANS (Virtual Local Area Networks),
separate, secure networks can be set up and operated independently
of each other through a single WAP.
Earth Friendly and RoHS Compliant
In support of our commitment to the RoHS initiative, which restricts the
use of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium in electronic
products, the NXA-WAP250G is completely RoHS compliant.
Three Modes of Deployment
Wireless deployment often presents unique installation challenges.
For example, building architecture and construction materials can
make it impossible to run Ethernet wiring. The WAP breaks down
those boundaries, increasing deployment locations using three mode
options:
• Access Point Mode
• AP/Repeater Mode
• Bridge Mode
Use all three modes in the same network at the same time.
Go on … we can handle it.

PTE-300
Pan/Tilt Ethernet
Camera Control
Head
The newest camera control head in the AMX
PosiTrack Pan/Tilt series capably controls camera
lens zoom, focus and iris features with the highest
level of broadcast quality precision. The PTE-300
uses gears rather than pulleys to pan and tilt the
camera, which provides very smooth operation.
• Ethernet Versatility Supporting AMX’s commitment to
standards-based technologies, the PTE-300 features an
Ethernet control interface offering more installation
flexibility, increased distances to the master controller and
no proprietary cable runs.
• Slow Speed Precision Movement / Accurate Preset
Recalls This head steps up to the plate with precise, slow
speed movements and accurate camera angle preset
recalls. No matter where you need the camera to be, or
how slow you need it to move, you can count on precision
accuracy every time.
• Carries the Load The PTE-300 can support larger
cameras weighing up to 30 pounds, yet shares the same
small form factor of control heads capable of supporting 15
pounds or less.
• Dynamic Device Discovery Protocol Inside With
DDDP technology built-in, the AMX NetLinx Controller
recognizes the PTE-300 immediately, making the device
easily identifiable on the network for quick configuration.
The PTE-300 can be used in VisualArchitect.

Streaming Real-Time Audio and
Real-Time Streaming
Distribute audio/video media from
one room to another, or to any
number of rooms – in real-time to
multiple destinations.
MAX-CSE
Video Over IP
The Encoder and Decoder reside on an IP network to allow users the ability
to stream real-time video to multiple rooms. Surveillance camera feeds and
DVD/VCR signals, for example, can broadcast through televisions, plasma
screens, projectors or AMX Modero Touch Panels. With digital distribution,
media can be sent to numerous display devices in different locations with no
degradation in signal quality that occurs with other analog distribution
methods.
The IP network represents the
pathway to all connected
electronics, from playback devices
to displays. The Encoder and
Decoder do all the work, getting
audio/video from point A to B and
beyond, over this same network.
Encoder
The Encoder does just that. It
encodes in real-time analog
audio/video content like DVD and VCR into digital MPEG2/4 formats
that can then be transported across the IP network. Compatible with
Modero VG Touch Panel series and MAX-CSD10 Decoder.
MAX-CSD10
One To Many
The Encoder/Decoder combine to provide multicast delivery of Composite
or S-Video for viewing on displays such as plasma screens, projectors and
AMX Modero VG Series Touch Panels.
Decoder
The Decoder does just that. It decodes digital MPEG2/4 into analog
audio/video content formats that can then be displayed for viewing.
NetLinx Compatible
The Encoder and Decoder will integrate with any NetLinx Control
System for efficiency and ease of use.
Retrofit-Friendly
Have CAT-5 cable already in place, but now you want to add video
capability? Simply install the Encoder in the equipment rack – one
for each device you want to stream, install a Decoder at every display
device – and connect them all over Ethernet. Now you can send video
signals from the DVD player, VCR player and other local devices
without any additional wiring.
Many To One
This Encoder/Decoder solution combines to deliver multiple video streams
of Composite or S-Video for previewing, selecting, and viewing on AMX
Modero VG Series Touch Panels and displays such as plasma screens or
projectors.
Local Control
Each encoder and decoder includes both a local IR port and serial port
for device control so the encoder can play/stop/pause the VCR that is
streaming the video. And the decoder can power on the plasma when
it receives a video stream.
24
Many To Many
This Encoder/Decoder Solution enables the delivery of multiple content
streams to multiple rooms, all on the same IP network.
