ETC debuts EchoTouch controller

ETC debuts EchoTouch controllerAt Lightfair 2018 ETC debuted EchoTouch, the perfect controller to create customised lighting looks for a variety of spaces. A stand-alone or integrated controller in ETC’s Echo line of architectural lighting solutions, EchoTouch also offers advanced lighting controls like sequence programming and colour tuning, all from a 7-inch touchscreen.

Combining three powerful capabilities into one elegant device, EchoTouch can:

  • Act as an interface into a stand-alone or integrated Unison Echo® control system
  • Provide status and control of all Echo products
  • Directly control DMX/RDM or sACN fixtures and devices

EchoTouch shines in all environments, whether it’s controlling lighting zones for general use, managing white-tuning, creating dramatic looks for restaurants and hotels, or creating a welcoming environment for museums, houses of worship, and more.

The graphics on the screen support customised layout and naming for any application. The touchscreen interface provides three standby modes to conserve screen life: displaying a user-provided logo, dim, and off; and returns instantaneously to normal functionality with any user interaction.

Because EchoTouch is part of the Echo family, it works flawlessly in an Echo control system. All Echo control and power products are compatible: control stations, responsive controls, interfaces and EchoDIN power controllers. Integration and control for DMX and sACN fixtures and devices is also straightforward.

Building managers can use EchoTouch to program Echo zones and preset looks so day-to-day use of a space is easy. Special sequences can easily be created via the intuitive interface with easy-to-use faders and buttons displayed on a vibrant 7-inch screen. Native RDM makes discovering and managing lighting fixtures even easier. Colour control is simple and accessible with a colour picker and customisable colour chips to let users take full advantage of their system.

The stylish, sleek, and durable design is built to withstand daily use in high-traffic areas. Its modern style matches common architectural finishes, and it’s designed to be neutral to fit anywhere. The black glass front is offered in four bezel colours: cream, grey, white and black.
