PACS (Professional Automation Control System)

Save to List
Control any device (with RS-232, IR, or 12 V DC triggers) through a Web or IP Interface

The Professional Automation Control System (PACS) allows IP control of Gefen devices using RS-232 or IR, and other A/V devices (displays, Blu-ray players, cable/satellite boxes, lighting systems, motorized screens, etc.) from any Web-enabled smartphone, WiFi tablet, laptop, or automation system. The Web user interface allows IR, RS-232, and 12V trigger commands to be sent by the PACS to the connected devices to execute the desired functions.

The configurable IR, RS-232, and 12V DC trigger signals allow the PACS to be compatible with most A/V devices. The PACS can learn, store, and manage IR commands of different manufacturers remotes.

The 12V DC triggers are highly configurable to work with the different requirements of various devices.

Use with the new Gefen A/V Automation System Processor to create a complete control system.

How it Works

Connect the serial-controlled devices to the PACS RS-232 ports. Plug the IR emitters into the PACS and place the LEDs close to the IR sensors of the A/V devices to be controlled. Connect trigger leads of various devices to the trigger outputs on the back panel. Connect the locking power supply to the PACS. Connect an Ethernet cable between the PACS and the local network.

Access the Web interface by typing in the correct IP address on your Web browser (default:, or by using Telnet. Configure the control interfaces (IR, RS-232, 12V DC triggers) via the Telnet/Web browser. Configure the Automation System to send commands to the PACS via IP.
