By combining the power of the ARC Plus with the convenience of a direct link to the transmitter, the PlusConnect allows broadcasters to manage the entire transmission plant, studio, and IT infrastructure on a single platform.
The PlusConnect provides a seamless link between the ARC Plus remote monitoring and control system and the transmitter, bringing hundreds of transmitter parameters* aboard the ARC Plus. A single serial connection to the transmitter reduces installation time and saves the expense of adding remote control capacity.
IP connectivity between the ARC Plus and the PlusConnect eliminates the need to run new wires or cable from the transmitter to the remote control. Just add the PlusConnect to your network. ARC Plus communications are secure thanks to an encrypted digital signature sent with each packet.
With an AutoPilot® Plus operator interface customized for each supported transmitter, managing the transmitter via software is easier than ever. Essential parameters are integrated in a streamlined custom view – no layout or design work needed. Adding more channels is easy with the drag-and-drop custom view editor.

It’s never been easier to connect remote equipment. The ARC Plus supports metering and status inputs via the 16-channel Integrated Input Unit and relay outputs via the 8-channel Integrated Command Relay Unit. In addition, the Plus-X 300 allows Ethernet-based integration of 8 inputs (metering or status) and 8 relay outputs.
Select transmitters connect to the ARC Plus system using the PlusConnect™ series of direct interfaces—no external parallel wiring required.
And for control of 120V equipment at the remote site, the Plus-X AC-8 allows individual control of up to eight outlets.
