Global Configurator® is Extron’s most powerful and versatile control system configuration software. It is designed to be used exclusively with Extron Pro Series Control products, including TouchLink® Pro touchpanels, IP Link® Pro control processors, MediaLink® Plus controllers, eBUS® button panels and devices, NBP Network Button Panels, and NAV Products. Powerful features, such as conditional logic, variables, and macros provide greater flexibility for more elaborate control system designs. Global Configurator has two modes. Global Configurator Plus is ideal for smaller applications requiring one control processor and one control interface. Global Configurator Professional is suited for applications requiring multiple control processors, enhanced functionality, and advanced configuration. Access to Global Configurator Professional requires ECP Certification.

Enhanced Functionality With Use of "if" Statements

Conditional logic allows advanced functionality by making “if” and “else” statements available. With the help of conditional logic, one can easily set up operations that are dependent upon occurrence and non-occurrence of certain events. Conditional logic with local variables also allows examination of conditions within the configured button actions before performing a task. This ultimately helps in streamlining project creation by minimizing the need for monitors and schedules.

Combining Multiple Controllers for Larger Control Systems

The Controller Groups feature allows up to four control processors to be grouped and work as one big controller. Grouping the control processors will also reduce the need for long RS-232 cable runs, as the group can span several rooms instead of being limited to a single room. This feature enables easy system expansion and ideally serves advanced systems that require more control ports than are offered in a single control processor.

Enhanced Drivers Enable Greater System Capabilities

An enhanced class of drivers brings greater AV system performance and capabilities. The Serial over Ethernet drivers expand control capabilities through devices such as Extron XTP Systems that are capable of IP to serial direct port control. This latest version of Global Configurator allows system designers to configure Extron IP Link Pro control processors for the latest BMS - Building Management System protocols, including BACnet, KNX, and DALI. Modern BMS allow for centralized monitoring and control of mechanical and electrical systems that include HVAC, lighting, power, and closed-circuit camera control. The enhanced driver library includes the specific driver needed to access the building management Gateway, and thus provides access for IP Link Pro control processors to be configured for BMS control.

Adding New Equipment is Fast and Easy

Configuration changes may be required when a controlled device is replaced or additional functionality is desired. With Global Configurator Plus and Professional, modifying a configuration is fast and easy. The program creates and stores unique configuration files, which can be recalled whenever changes are required.
