The Extron MKP 2000

MKP 2000 White 60-682-03 Retired

The Extron MKP 2000 is an X-Y remote control panel designed to work with most Extron matrix switchers via Ethernet or RS-232 serial control. Its versatile, compact two-gang design provides for convenient mounting in virtually any location. In large-scale switching environments, an unlimited number of MKP 2000 control panels can be easily added wherever switcher control is needed.

User Interface

The MKP 2000's user interface features a large, alphanumeric LED display and a 12-button keypad. In addition to a 10-key numeric keypad for input and output number entry, other MKP 2000 user interface functions include:

  • The Back button functions as a "backspace" for correcting the last digit of an entered input or output number.
  • Using the Cancel button, a user can clear the LED display to 000, erasing any entered numbers or error messages.
  • The Input button specifies that the next number entered is an input, while the Output button specifies that the next number entered is an output.
  • The Take button executes the crosspoint tie created with the input and output selection. It is equivalent of the Enter button on a matrix switcher's front panel.
  • The LED display shows the input or output number most recently entered using the MKP 2000's numeric keys. It also provides configuration status information during installation and setup.

Control Options

The MKP 2000 is designed to work with most Extron matrix switchers using Extron's SIS™ - Simple Instruction Set command structure, and is equipped with Ethernet and RS-232 serial control ports.

The MKP 2000 features two RS-232 ports, one for primary communication with the matrix switcher, and a second pass-through port which enables the use of a control system. In addition, several MKP 2000s can be daisy-chained together via RS-232.

In a network environment, the Ethernet port allows the MKP 2000 to be placed on a standard TCP/IP network. An unlimited number of MKP 2000s can be connected to the matrix switcher as part of a simple IP network.

One of the key features of the MKP 2000 is virtual I/O grouping, which allows access to specific inputs and outputs to be assigned or blocked for each MKP 2000 utilized in a system design. For example, each room in a multi-room application can have its own set of allowed inputs and outputs programmed into the local MKP 2000. Any number of MKP 2000 remote panels can be integrated into the system, and each can be restricted to a certain set of I/Os with relatively little effort.

Integrated Web Server

The MKP 2000's integrated, high performance Web server provides internal Web pages for easy set-up and configuration. The System Settings page consolidates controls for IP address setup, RS-232 control port setting, and switcher I/O configuration, including I/O authorization for the virtual I/O grouping function.


Note: 60-682-03 is retired; 60-682-02 is a suggested replacement.
