This is an electronic control box for the Bogen Expan Drive Background Support System. It controls up to 10 motors, which control the raising and lowering of up to 10 backgrounds. Operating functions are controlled by included IR remote controller.

Remote controller and control box are both programmable for operation on one of seven different channels - therefore if two control box systems are used in the same room, they can be set to different channels to avoid interference (An additional remote control would be necessary).
