MT Series transcoders are designed for bi-directional remote control applications. Eight status lines can be set up in any combination of inputs and outputs for the transfer of button or contact states. An automatic confirmation indicates that the transmission was successfully received. The large, twenty-four bit address size makes transmissions highly unique, minimizing the possibility of conflict between multiple devices. The MT also outputs the ID of the originating transcoder for logging or identification. Recognition of the individual outputs can be easily defined for each device by the manufacturer or end user. This allows the creation of user groups and relationships. A Serial Interface Engine (SIE) is provided, which allows configuration and editing of the device and control of the transcoder by an external microprocessor or PC. Housed in a tiny 20-pin SSOP package, MT Series parts feature low supply voltage, current consumption, and selectable baud rates.
