The Pharos Designer TPS 8 (Touch Panel Station 8”) is a new, spacious and elegant interface with a customisable, 8” capacitive touchscreen, compatible with any Pharos Designer Controller, and supported from the Designer 2.10 release.

The front panel is a seamless, uninterrupted glass plate available in Black and White, giving an elegant touch experience, and superior aesthetics. Themes and templates provide inspiration for setting out controls across the generously proportioned pages. And, with a unique and innovative universal mounting solution, the TPS 8 will be easy to wall mount in your installation, regardless of region.

The new hardware features a highly responsive touch experience behind the chic glass face. The TPS 8 can be used with the full range of Pharos Designer Controllers, providing elegant interaction wherever it’s needed. The interface controls can be altered during live operation through the Designer Trigger functionality.


      • The 8″ 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 generous 8″ screen provides plenty of real estate for laying out buttons, sliders and colour wheels. The TPS 8 puts control of your Pharos 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.


      • The TPS 8 is designed using the latest technology. The new IPS screens have a high DPI, with a resolution of 1024×768 in an 8” display. And, with new technology, comes greater responsiveness with the interface, enabling five-point multi-touch, giving smooth transitions, high screen fidelity and generous processing power, allowing freedom to load as many pages as needed.



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 8 ships with a new, innovative wall-mounting system. The Universal Mounting Plate can be fitted to a wide range of regulation backboxes, including UK, US and EU. The TPS 8 fits to the mounting plate via a bayonet twist system which is not immediately obvious to an observer. This keeps it securely fastened with a tool-free installation, and the MicroSD card remains securely out of reach whilst installed.


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 2 software.

Designer (v2.10 and above)
