KP10 A-BUS keypad
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing this Cambridge Audio Incognito product. Incognito is a cost-effective,
modular based system using standard Cat-5 or Cat-6 cable to distribute hi-fi quality sound and
video around a home.
The KP10 is an in-wall, A-BUS TM compatible amplified keypad with buttons for control of speaker
volume levels, Standby/On and source select (with compatible equipment), as well as having an
IR window for receiving remote control signals. The KP10 can connect to A-BUS hubs, A-BUS
Ready receivers, or to the Incognito Ready outputs of Cambridge Audio receivers and amplifiers
using Cat-5 wiring. The KP10 then connects to speakers using conventional speaker cable.
The KP10 keypad fits into any wall and is available with different finishes to compliment various
decorative schemes. The KP10 is fitted on the wall by fixing it into a standard single UK 47mm
electrician’s back-box. All knock-outs in the back-box should be removed to provide maximum
ventilation. Care should be taken in choosing a site for the KP10, and always refer to the
precautions in this guide. Bear in mind it is not always preferable to fit the KP10 next to a light
switch, particularly if the faceplates will differ.
Thanks for taking the time to read this manual, we do recommend you keep it for future
reference.

Incognito A-BUS keypad 3
SYSTEM OPTIONS
The KP10 keypad can be used in two main configurations:
1. As part of a full Incognito system, where it is plugged into an Incognito hub (AH10), perhaps
with other Incognito accessories such as a video switching unit (VH10) or local input module
(LM10) fitted.
2. Where the keypad is plugged directly into an A-BUS Ready/Incognito Ready output of a
compatible Cambridge Audio (or other brand) A/V Receiver or Amplifier, no other accessories
are possible other than the required power supply and remote control/s.
The KP10 has two modes of operation to support these configurations, AH10 mode and
Standard A-BUS/Incognito Ready mode. The modes are selected by setting the Mode switch,
located on the rear of the KP10.
Note: Setting the Mode switch to the wrong setting can cause erroneous operation!
Full Incognito system
For use in a full Incognito system (see diagram opposite) the Mode Switch MUST be in the "AH10"
position as shown below:

In this configuration the keypad is wired directly to the amplifier/receiver. A Power Supply Unit
(PS10) is also required to power the one or two keypads as shown.
To allow control of your source equipment from the remote rooms an IR emitter (IR10) is plugged
into one of the IR outputs on the rear of the unit and then attached over the IR window of the
source unit. Alternatively, on our own products that feature IR emitter Inputs, a mini-jack to minijack lead can be used.
Commands received by the keypads can now be sent back to the source equipment via the
amplifier. It is then possible to control the source equipment from the remote rooms by using the
source equipment's own remote controls or through a learning remote. The Incognito LR10
Learning Remote can fully control the keypads, “learn” the source's remote controls and change
source input on the amplifier etc.

INSTALLATION NOTES
The KP10 is fitted on the wall by fixing it into a standard UK 47mm depth single-gang
electrician’s back-box (pattress). All knock-outs in the back-box should be removed to provide
maximum ventilation.
Where it is desired to fit a mains lighting switch etc next to a keypad, a barrier-box or two single
back-boxes must be used (bear in mind it is not preferable to fit the keypad next to a light-switch
particularly if the faceplate styles will differ). Only a qualified electrician should attempt such
installations.
Avoid fitting the KP10 where there is line of sight to another KP10. In such situations both
keypads may pick up the same commands from a remote control and it will be difficult to control
each zone independently.
Avoid fitting the KP10 where there is line of sight to the source equipment for the system. In such
situations the source equipment may pick up the same IR commands directly as are picked up
by the keypad and sent to the source equipment. This can interfere with the remote operation of
the source equipment.
Do not fit the keypad in areas directly lit by strong sunlight or where it will be strongly lit by
fluorescent tubes. These can be sources of infra-red energy which can interfere with the remote
control operation of the system. Some plasma televisions can radiate a lot of infra-red energy
and care should be taken if fitting a KP10 near a plasma screen television. Avoid placing the
KP10 near to dimmer switches or other items, which generate a lot of electrical noise.

KP10 A-BUS keypad
Safety precautions
Care should be taken when choosing the site for a KP10, the keypad must never be installed in a
back-box which also contains mains wiring or in areas of high humidity.
The KP10 runs on 24 V DC supplied through the connecting cable. As such there is no mains
voltage present in the KP10 and the unit is often safe to fit in areas where only extra low voltage
(ELV) equipment is permitted. However, it is imperative that you always check the wiring
regulations in force for your application and area.
Faceplates
The KP10 faceplate system is based on the 50 x 50 ‘easy-clip’ module standard and is
interchangeable with the wide range of faceplates made by manufacturers such as MK Electric,
RPP etc that conform to this standard. If it is desired to fit another faceplate, it can be replaced
by gently prising apart the KP10 faceplate and snapping on another in its place.
Fitting the keypad
Remove the supplied faceplate from the KP10 by gently prising apart. It will “pop” off. Connect
each wire in the Cat-5 cable to its respective terminal in the screw-down connector on the back
of the KP10 (refer to the Cat-5 to KP10 screw-down connectors diagram in the ‘Rear panel
connections’ section of this guide). The recommended maximum length for use with standard
Cat-5 cable is 30m from hub to keypad in total (screened Cat-5 cable can also be used). After
making the wiring connections, fit the KP10 to the back-box with the two supplied M3.5x20
screws. Gently push the faceplate back on to the module.
Note: If in doubt about any aspect of installation or wiring, seek professional advice from a
qualified installer.

adjustment after two seconds. If “Standard A-BUS/Incognito Ready” mode is selected on
the Mode switch, the KP10 will only rotate round the main 6 sources.
REMOTE CONTROL
The KP10 can be used with the Incognito LR10 remote control,
a sophisticated learning remote which is able to learn the
codes of all the source equipment remotes. Once programmed
the user can thus use the LR10 to perform all operations from
one remote.
The LR10 is also suitable where the KP10 is to be connected to
the A-BUS Ready outputs of AV receivers and amplifiers instead
of one of our hubs as it can learn the relevant source change
commands etc of the receiver or amplifier as well as the source
equipment.
Note: Please refer to the Incognito LR10 manual for further
information.
