Yes! The Plus-X AC-8 remote outlet controller fully integrates with the ARC Plus remote control, but can also be used as a stand-alone outlet controller using its built-in web connection. The Plus-X AC-8 accepts contact closures, so you can control each outlet with another remote control, such as the Burk ARC-16 or GSC3000/VRC2500.
Both systems feature onboard macros for automatic control without a dedicated PC, and both may be used with AutoPilot® 2010 software, allowing a mix of GSC3000 and VRC2500 systems in your operation. The GSC3000 is expandable to 256 channels by cascading additional GSC3000 I/O units, whereas the VRC2500 is a 16-channel remote control system. The Voice Interface is included onboard the VRC2500; in the GSC3000, the Voice Interface is added as a separate unit.
No! You can use the wiring interface and command relay units from the VRC1000 and VRC2000 when you install a new GSC3000 and VRC2500.
The GT-4 connects to the GSC3000 over a distance of up to 1,000’ and appears as a new unit in the system, saving I/O channels and realizing a cost savings. The BTU-4 connects to the GSC3000 by means of four analog inputs over a 25’ distance. We recommend the GT-4 for monitoring indoor, outdoor and stack temperature with the GSC3000.
