Please note the TPS has now been superseded by the newer TPS 5.

The Pharos Designer TPS (Touch Panel Station) is an elegant interface with a customisable, 4.3” capacitive touchscreen that works with any Pharos Designer Controller.
With control of playback selection and lighting levels at your fingertips, you can gracefully transition between scenes, timelines, effects and pixel-mapped media. The customisable touchscreen user interface lets you create multiple pages of lighting controls, configure their appearance and get immediate visual feedback.
The TPS works in a similar way to the Pharos Designer TPC without a channel capacity, providing a user interface at a lower price point
Interface controls can be altered during live operation through the Designer Trigger functionality
Fully customisable interface, created in the free Pharos Designer 2 software
A 4.3″ vivid colour capacitive touchscreen makes navigating your project’s controls appealing and intuitive. It’s quick and easy to activate presets, manual overrides, or even use a custom colour picker to personalise your lighting. The TPS puts control of your Designer system at your fingertips.
Touchscreen user interface is fully customisable using the free Pharos Designer 2 software. Create multiple pages of lighting controls including buttons, sliders, keypads and colour pickers, and configure their appearance and visual feedback. Make it eye-catching by importing your own graphics or picking from one of our attractive themes.
Designer Trigger is a rules engine that uses conditional logic and a broad range of interfaces and protocols so you can control your lighting with responsive, reactive programming. Send and receive any command, to and from any system. Conditional logic is supported, along with a powerful built-in scripting language for unlimited flexibility. Read more
Be limited by your design brief, not your interface. Whether you want to show a few simple buttons, or use custom branded graphics, the touch panel supports it all. It is also capable of supporting any font, including those with extended character sets; e.g. Chinese, Korean, Japanese.
The TPS may be taught to recognise up to 16 different IR codes from a standard infrared remote control. When one of these keys on the remote control is pressed, the TPS will treat that as a press on its own screen.
Multiple Touch Devices can be combined with one or more Pharos controllers on the same network to build the ideal system for your installation, with a maximum of 40 Designer Controllers and Touch Devices in total. Each Touch Device is easily programmed using our Designer 2 software. Read more
