The 3-Series® Media Presentation Controller 302 (MPC3-302) is a wall-mounted, PoE+ powered 3-Series Control System® automated processor and control panel in one. Its modern appearance and customizable backlit buttons provide an ideal user interface for controlling AV and other functions. The controller offers fully‑programmable functionality, supports web and cloud‑based configuration and management, and integrates with Crestron Fusion® software as part of a complete managed enterprise solution.
Crestron® MPC3 series controllers are perfect for classrooms, meeting rooms, lecture halls, and training facilities. Use the MPC3-302 to control a video display or AV system, adjust lighting and window shades, or any other custom application. The MPC3-302 is designed for flush‑mount installation in a wall using a 3‑gang U.S. electrical box (not included). It can also be installed in a podium with no back box or placed on a table using the optional tabletop kit.
NOTE: The MPC3-302 series fits all the same mounting options as previous generation MPC‑M10, MPC‑M20, MPC‑M25, and MPC‑M50 series products, providing an easy retrofit upgrade for older systems.
Customizable Backlit Buttons
The MPC3-302 features ten backlit buttons, which can each be labeled using the peel‑off labels provided, or custom labeled using laser‑engravable labels (sold separately). Elegant backlighting surrounds each button and illuminates the labels. Each button is backlit blue when active and white when inactive to provide clear indication of what media source or lighting scene is currently selected. A volume knob is included, encircled by a blue volume gauge to indicate the audio volume setting. Additional buttons are provided for power and mute control.
All buttons and controls on the MPC3-302 are custom programmable to control any device or function. Autobrightness control of the backlighting ensures optimal visibility under varying lighting conditions.
NOTE: For information about ordering custom button labels, refer to the MPB3/MPC3‑BTN10‑B ENGRAVED or MPB3/MPC3‑BTN10‑W ENGRAVED web pages. Refer to the PDF version of the MPC3-302 spec sheet for a list of supplied labels.
No Rack Required
The MPC3-302 encapsulates the industry’s best control technologies in one compact wall mount device. Gigabit Ethernet provides the essential interface for connecting to the building network and controlling Crestron AV switchers, audio processors, power controllers, and other IP controllable equipment. Cresnet® network connectivity provides support for Crestron lighting dimmers, motorized shades, sensors, thermostats, keypads, and more. Onboard RS‑232, IR, relay, and Versiport I/O control ports enable direct integration with all types of third‑party equipment.
Expanded connectivity is available using a C2N‑IO control port expansion module, CEN‑GWEXER or CENI‑GWEXER infiNET EX® network wireless gateway, DIN‑CENCN-2 or DIN‑CENCN‑2‑POE Ethernet to Cresnet Bridge, CEN‑CI3‑1 or CEN‑CI3‑3 control card interface, or CEN‑IO‑COM‑102, CEN‑IO‑DIGIN‑104, CEN‑IO‑IR‑104, or CEN‑IO‑RY‑104 wired Ethernet module.
3-Series Control Engine
The MPC3-302 features an integrated, enterprise‑grade 3‑Series control processor. Built-in Modular Programming Architecture (optional 1) allows the MPC3-302 to run multiple programs simultaneously for increased efficiency and flexibility. Rock solid networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems and devices, with add‑on control capability using Crestron touch screens, keypads, wireless remotes, and mobile device apps with remote management through Crestron Fusion and the Crestron XiO Cloud™ service.
No Programming Required!
Built-in .AV Framework™ technology delivers a fully functional AV presentation system with simplified web‑based configuration and a choice of control options and add‑ons. For complete details on the capabilities supported by .AV Framework, visit www.crestron.com/avframework.
Crestron Fusion Room Monitoring and Scheduling
Crestron Fusion provides an integrated platform for creating smart buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity. As part of a complete managed network in a corporate enterprise, college campus, convention center, or any other facility, the MPC3-302 works with Crestron Fusion to enable remote scheduling, monitoring, and control of rooms and technology from a central help desk or mobile app. It also enables organizations to reduce energy consumption by tracking real‑time usage and automating control of AV, lighting, shades, and HVAC. For more information about Crestron Fusion, visit www.crestron.com/fusion.
Crestron XiO Cloud Provisioning and Management
The MPC3-302 is compatible with the Crestron XiO Cloud™ service, which is an IoT (Internet of Things) based platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base. Built on the Microsoft® Azure® software platform and utilizing Microsoft's industry‑leading Azure IoT Hub technology, Crestron XiO Cloud enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices in the time it would ordinarily take to manage just one. Unlike other virtual machine‑based cloud solutions, Azure services provide unlimited scalability to suit the ever‑growing needs of an enterprise. For more information, visit www.crestron.com/xiocloud.
The MPC3-302 is an enterprise‑class control processor that can be deployed across hundreds of spaces and set up easily using a web browser, toolbox software, Crestron Fusion, or Crestron XiO Cloud. It employs standard network security protocols, including 802.1X network access control, Active Directory® service authentication, SSH, TLS, and HTTPS to ensure reliability and compliance with your organization’s IT policies.
Built‑in SNMP support enables integration with third‑party IT management software, allowing network administrators to manage and control Crestron systems on the network in an IT‑friendly format.
Power over Ethernet Plus
Using PoE+ technology, the MPC3-302 gets its operating power directly through the LAN wiring. PoE+ (Power over Ethernet Plus) eliminates the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. A Crestron PoE+ switch (CEN‑SWPOE‑16, sold separately) offers a total networking solution with built‑in PoE+ to support multiple MPC3 controllers and other PoE or PoE+ powered devices.
Cresnet provides a simple four‑wire network wiring solution for Crestron keypads, lighting controls, shade motors, thermostats, occupancy sensors, and other devices that don’t require the higher speed of Ethernet. The MPC3-302 includes a Cresnet master port capable of supporting approximately 20 Cresnet devices. Systems with more than 20 devices can be handled by adding a Cresnet hub (DIN‑HUB or CNXHUB) or Ethernet to Cresnet bridge (DIN‑CENCN‑2 or DIN‑CENCN‑2‑POE).
NOTE: The MPC3-302 supplies a maximum of 2.5 W to power Cresnet devices. For applications requiring more than 2.5 W, an external Cresnet power supply must be added.
Onboard Control Ports
In addition to Ethernet, the MPC3-302 includes a variety of control ports for interfacing with third‑party equipment. Its bidirectional COM port and IR port (one of each) allow for controlling a video display, document camera, and other devices. Two programmable relay ports are provided for controlling a projection screen, lift, or other low‑voltage contact‑closure actuated equipment. Two Versiport I/O ports enable the integration of various types of sensors or anything else that provides a dry contact closure, low‑voltage logic, or provides 0–10 VDC signal.
Flush Mount Installation
The MPC3-302 is designed to be flush mounted in a wall using a 3‑gang U.S. electrical box (not included). It can also be installed in a lectern or podium with no back box. Once installed, the button labels can be changed at any time by simply removing the front cover. A security screw is included to prevent unauthorized removal.
Using the optional tabletop kit (TTK‑MP/MPC/IPAC‑B‑T or TTK‑MP/MPC/IPAC‑W), the MPC3-302 becomes a stylish, freestanding controller that fits perfectly on a table, desk, or countertop. It can even be permanently attached to the surface using the optional swivel mount kit (SMK‑MP/MPC/IPAC). All tabletop options are sold separately.
