Eaton Launch Zero 88 FLX

Eaton has expanded its Zero 88 FLX range with two new lighting control consoles.

The FLX S24 and FLX S48 control 48 and 96 fixtures respectively, while the Zero 88 has incorporated streamline elements of FLX to assist with quicker user operation.

Colour is the core operating architecture, with four encoder wheels and a 7-inch multi-touch display offering Zero 88’s colour and image picking interfaces and access to mood boards by LEE Filters.

Moving lights can be controlled using the multi-touch pan or tilt grid, the encoder wheels, or by applying automatic movement effects such as figure 8, rainbow and fly-in, including a master go button for playback.

Free apps for iOS and Android are an integral part of the overall FLX S package. Tablets act as wireless touchscreen monitors, while smart phones act as remotes, providing wireless control of the rig and allowing the user to manipulate, control and playback shows. Apple Watch users can also benefit from using their device as a focus tool.

Enhanced connectivity includes two USB ports, an Ethernet or networking port, both 5-pin and 3-pin DMX outputs, and for FLX S48, an external monitor. Both consoles are available in either one or two universe versions out of the factory, or with the option to upgrade easily online after purchase.

The FLX S range is designed for universal appeal, and is manufactured in the UK by Zero 88, suitable for fringe theatre productions, education, community venues, houses of worship, corporate events and presentations, concerts, rental applications, fashion shows, festivals, holiday parks and themed attractions, cruise ships, television and many more. /
