d&b network topology

The D20, D80, 10D and 30D amplifiers can be remote controlled using the industry standard OCA/AES70 protocol via Ethernet and through the established CAN-Bus. d&b amplifiers are controlled using the d&b R1 Remote control software, which is available on both Windows and MAC operating systems. This Remote user interface can control the D20, D80, 10D and 30D amplifiers via Ethernet (OCA/AES70) and the D6, D12 and E-PAC amplifiers through CAN-Bus networks simultaneously. The D20, D80, 10D and 30D amplifiers also provide a web interface, offering access to individual amplifiers through a web browser.

d&b Remote network via OCA/AES70 Ethernet

d&b Remote network via OCA/AES70 Ethernet

The 10D, 30D, D20 and D80 amplifiers can be remotely controlled via a standard Ethernet network, providing higher bandwidth and quicker response compared to the CAN-Bus network. This latest generation of d&b amplifiers are all fitted with a dual Ethernet port, allowing simple networks to be set up without requiring an extra switch. The industry standard OCA/AES70 (Open Control Architecture) protocol is used, created by the OCA Alliance of which d&b is a founding member. For further information please refer to the d&b TI 310 Ethernet networking, which is available for download below.

The d&b amplifiers can be integrated within the CAN-Bus network and are fitted with two REMOTE connectors (RJ 45) to link the CAN-Bus signal and enable daisy chaining. The network may contain any combination of up to a total of 504 devices. It is connected to a PC or MAC running R1 Remote control software V2, using R60 USB to CAN, or R70 Ethernet to CAN interfaces. While the CAN-Bus network covers distances up to 600 m the Ethernet connection to the R70 can be made using standard Ethernet technologies, including wireless or fibre optic networks.

Web interface

Web interface

The D20, D80, 10D and 30D amplifiers feature an integrated web interface to control individual amplifiers via a standard web browser. In small applications, this allows direct control of each device without the need to create an R1 Remote control software file. The amplifier and the computer must be connected to an Ethernet network. Using a wireless access point, these d&b amplifiers can be controlled using mobile devices.
