The Pharos TPS (Touch Panel Station) is an elegant interface with a customisable, 4.3” capacitive touch screen, that works with any Pharos Controller.
The TPS is available in a range of different coloured bezels and overlays. Install is easy and convenient as the TPS only requires a single Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network connection.
The customisable touch screen user interface lets you create multiple pages of controls, configure their appearance and get immediate visual feedback. The controls then allow you to trigger and adjust scenes, timelines, overrides and a myriad of other functions that are part of your control system.
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 Pharos system at your fingertips.
Create your fully customisable user interface using the free Pharos Designer software. Create multiple pages of 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.
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 for unlimited flexibility.
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 infra-red 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 Controllers and Touch Devices in total. Each Touch Device is easily programmed using our Designer software.
Works with any Pharos Controller, and links to it using standard protocols over an Ethernet network.
Programmed and configured using the free Pharos Designer 2 software – available for Windows or Mac OS X – with upload over Ethernet.
As a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) device, the TPS can be placed at any remote location and only needs a single Cat5 cable that provides both power and data.
