Metreau KP Engraving

jjamesjjames Just another dudePosts: 2,906
From what I understand - correct me if I'm wrong - we cannot get any custom engraving done on these keypads. For instance, a client would probably want "Rock" or "Classical" or "102.9 FM" engraved for their keypads - any idea where we could send these off to get engraved? I don't think AMX is doing it, so suggestions for a third-party company?

    If you could provide info on the additional button set, I would be most interested. I have a job that has quite a few of these and it is quickly approaching. If you could find out the FG numbers for the various kits, it would be very helpful. I will of course try to get an answer from our rep, and will post the response I get.

    Also, if you can get a list of the buttons included with each kit (or a link to them on the AMX site), that would be great.

    Sales Engineering sent me the following:

    Find attached a table, which shows the standard buttons shipped with the different Metreau types.
    In the right coloumn of the table you'll find the additional buttons available.
    FG5797-10 is the bag with the buttons in small size
    FG5797-11 is the bag with the buttons in large size

    There is NO faceplate shipped with the Metreaus. The faceplates are

    Marc - is this preliminary or official?

    I could order blanks and then get them engraved myself since AMX has decided to provide us with a product yet again that we cannot customize correct? Sort of ironic since this is a "custom" industry.

    We'll probably never install these keypads again for that very reason. At least the ugly Gawd-awful Mio Classic/Elite/etc. can be engraved. *sigh*
  • This was a preliminary list, the Button Bag is possibly going to be replaced by individual buttons, purchased individually.

    Blanks - are going to be available, however, custom screenprinting is not available inhouse (I do not know of further plans)

    additional buttons to come soon are On, Off, VCR, Play, REW, FFWD, CH+, CH-, Pause, PC2, Power, LPC (Laptop), LPC2 (Laptop2)

    FYI, the button kit still costs a crazy amount, but the individual buttons are now available at $2 a piece.
    Sales rep is going to check again why you can order every button available cheaper individually then in the kit.
