New BTX Products on Display at InfoComm 2011:
BTX Control Solutions
BTX’s innovative and affordable Control Solutions allow non-programmers to “program” a control system through a simple yet robust drag-and-drop interface. BTX Control Solutions include the multi-award-winning, software-based control platform from Stardraw. Its drag-and-drop interface allows systems to be configured and controlled without having to write a single line of code. Also included in the offering are elegant and affordable desktop and in-wall touch-panel controllers. And thanks to the platform’s support of WebServices, any device that supports HTTP or runs a browser can also be used as an interface to talk to the Stardraw Control system, including an iPod touch(R), iPhone(R), and iPad(R). BTX Control Solutions offers a wide variety of network adapters that allow the most commonly used devices to be easily managed and accessed via the Stardraw network-based software. Based on open systems and industry standards, these ultra-compact devices fit almost anywhere and include a choice of wireless (WiFi) or wired (TCP/IP) connectivity to infrared (IR), serial (RS-232), and contact closure (relay) equipment.

BTX PRO Plate and Panel Designer Software
BTX designed its Pro Plate and Panel Designer software to complement the company’s bolstered in-house wall plate and panel manufacturing capabilities, delivering an ordering and configuration application that is so simple that anyone — from administrator to engineer — can start using it within a matter of minutes. Users simply drag a wall plate or rack panel from BTX’s extensive product library and then start designing and configuring. Connector options appear in an easy-to-navigate menu and users simply drag and drop their choices to the desired spot on the plate or panel. Optional engraving may also be added if desired. Once an item number and quote have been generated, users may conveniently place an order right within the software. Since its introduction a year ago, BTX has added hundreds of new connector symbols that can now be included in the plates and panels. In addition, BTX has expanded its offering to include extra-thick non-bowing panels and colored plates. Integrators may download the software for free at http://bit.ly/l4rvyF.
