New touch panels announced

AUTHOR: Inavate

Designed for speed, style and versatility, the TPS-6X is a 6-inch touch panel that streamlines the Crestron family of panels, combining the features and functionality previously found in nine other models and making this the one solution for almost any application.

While docked, the TPS-6X is a wired Cresnet or Ethernet connected panel with full-motion video display; simply lift the panel off the dock, and the panel automatically switches to a wireless RF device. TPS-6X features long-range, high-speed two-way RF communication up to 200 feet and 1-way IR.

The TPS-6X simultaneously remains connected to the RF radio while operating as a wired panel, so when the panel is removed from the dock, it instantly switches over to wireless mode. The TPS-6X operates within IEEE 802.15.4 so it does not experience any of the challenges of WiFi.

Illuminated pushbuttons on the TPS-6X provide quick access to volume adjustment, channel selection, and on-screen menu navigation. Button text is easily viewable in variable lighting conditions thanks to backlit laser engraving. The TPS-6X is also available without buttons.
