The Pharos BPS (Button Panel Station) is a versatile 8-button station with integrated button LEDs that works with any Pharos Controller. The stylish BPS is available in a range of finishes and there are two variants for compatibility with either US or UK back boxes. Install is easy and convenient as the BPS only requires a single Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network connection.
The function of each button is freely programmable, and each button has a white LED indicator with fully user-controllable brightness and a variety of flash effect options for giving visual feedback. In addition a learning infra-red sensor is included, allowing any standard remote control to be used to trigger button presses.
The BPS is part of the Pharos range of Remote Devices, which allow the fully scalable Pharos system to be tailored to the needs of each individual project. Multiple Pharos Controllers can be used together with up to 200 Remote Devices and will synchronise automatically. The Controllers are programmed using the free Pharos Designer 2 software.
Timing is everything. Whatever the stimulus, Pharos Trigger can handle it. You can control your lighting with responsive, reactive programming. Pharos Trigger is a rules engine that uses conditional logic and a broad range of interfaces and protocols. Send and receive any command, to and from any system. Conditional logic is supported, along with a powerful built-in scripting language.
An embossed magnetic overlay sits within a low-profile bezel that is only 5.5mm thick to give a sleek finish with no visible fixings. Both the bezel and the overlay are available in a variety of colours. There are two variants for compatibility with either US or UK back boxes.
Up to 200 Remote Devices can be combined with one or more Pharos Controllers on the same network to build the ideal system for your installation. Each Remote Device is easily addressed using a convenient thumb wheel. Whether one Controller or many, it’s all easily programmed using our Designer software.
The function of each of the 8 buttons is freely programmable and the system can detect press, hold, repeat and release events.
Each button has a white LED indicator with fully user-controllable brightness and a choice of visual effects such as fades, fast or slow flashing or ramps.
As a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) device, the BPS can be placed at any remote location and only needs a single Cat5 cable that provides both power and data.
The BPS may be taught to recognise up to 8 different IR codes from a standard infra-red remote control. When one of these keys on the remote control is pressed the BPS will treat that as a press on its own button.
Programmed and configured using the free Pharos Designer 2 software – available for Windows or Mac OS X – with upload over Ethernet or USB.
Works with any Pharos Controller and links to it using standard protocols over an Ethernet network.
Microprocessor-based system supports firmware updates via the network from Designer software or the web interface.
