NEW NILES INGENIOUS IR™ INFRARED EXTENDER SYSTEMS PROVIDE INSTALLERS WITH RELIABLE IR CONTROL REGARDLESS OF ENVIRONMENT
Interference-proof technology eliminates system design compromises

         INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, SEPTEMBER 5, 2003 – Niles Audio Corporation today announced the introduction of a complete line-up of Ingenious IR™ products that provide total solutions to installing infrared extender systems in virtually any environment. The Ingenious IR line-up includes a variety of plasma-proof infrared sensors; convenient connection hubs known as Main System Units (MSUs); an assortment of IR Flashers; and an IR Sensor expansion hub. Custom installers can now design systems based solely on installation requirements not environmental limitations; plasma displays, indirect sunlight and florescent lighting are no longer system-limiting factors. Additionally, the Niles Ingenious IR products deliver newfound automation possibilities from installer friendly MSUs that support single-zone and multi-zone systems.
         
"Offering custom installers a solution for every IR system design need was our primary goal," said John Hamilton, Niles product manager. "Ingenious IR products enable installers to design and install IR repeater systems around their customers’ needs. Gone are the days of compromised performance due to environmental constraints," Hamilton added.
         
The lineup consists of five IR Sensors, four MSUs, five newly designed IR Flashers, a sensor expansion hub and a Remote Control Anywhere!® Kit. Several of the IR Sensors are available in a variety of colors and packaging options. The MSUs feature significant design enhancements: regulated in-line power supplies, removable screwless connectors, integrated mounting wings and durable metal chassis’. The IR Flashers are available in a high-output version that will send IR commands to several components at once and in Microflasher™ configurations for addressing individual components.
