Current Audio® AX-KPC 2.8" Touch Screen LCD Panel

The Axium™ KPC2.8 keypad from Current Audio® is a programmable 2.8" color LCD Touch screen that is capable of learning and sending IR commands. This valuable quality means that the KPC2.8 can be used as a standalone keypad to control virtually any IR controlled device. If comprehensive IR control is what you’re after, the KPC2.8 Touch Screen LCD Panel is just the method to use. And with a host of features set up by the Axium™ Keypad Manager software, the KPC2.8 simplifies programming and enhances amplifier and source equipment control.

LCD Touch Screen

The KPC2.8 is equipped with a 2.8” LCD touch sensitive panel that features a contrast ratio of 500:1, a viewing angle of 160° (H & V), and displays 240 (RGB) x 320 Dot 64K colors. It can be utilized in either portrait or landscape display orientations as needed. Single touch controls with animated buttons, buttons with feedback, sliders, numeric readouts, and applets make it simple to operate the functions of the panel and provide control and metadata display.

Amplification Control

When used with an Axium™ Multi-Zone Amplifier (such as the CUR1034 – sold separately), this handy panel provides a full 2-way feedback of source selection, power, mute, and volume status and control.

RS232 Control

To expand the uses of the KPC2.8 and encompass RS232 applications, utilize the panel with Axium™ AX-R4 RS232 Router (sold separately). This provides full 2-way RS232 control as well as Ethernet and IR routing with the prebuilt Axium™ applets used with the KPC2.8.

IR Control

For optimized usage with IR components, the panel is capable of learning both modulated and pulse IR codes. It can handle modulation frequencies up to 500 KHz. A large IR database is supplied, and IR codes using the”HEX” code format may be imported into an Axium™ keypad manager program. The KPC2.8 also features 8Mbytes Flash memory for GUI and IR commands.


The panel can be flush box mounted and both white and black cover plates and included to customize the appearance as the application décor requires. Additionally, it can be wired up to 300m with Cat5e “Home Run” RJ-45 terminated cable with the option to daisy chain to another keypad.
