Eaton EXPANDS Zero 88 FLX Lighting Console

Eaton expands its award-winning Zero 88 FLX range with two powerful, all-new lighting control consoles designed for applications where space, time, ease of use, and flexibility are key factors.

FLX S24 and FLX S48 are affordable, easy to use and fun. They control 48 and 96 fixtures respectively to bring the power, simplicity, and cost-efficiency.

Recognizing that programming time continues to become ever-tighter and more precious, Zero 88 has streamlined key elements of FLX S to assist with all the prep work, getting the user ready to operate even quicker.

“RigSync,” nominated for a PLASA Innovation Award later this month, keeps FLX S fully synchronized with the lighting rig, without any need for the user to understand DMX or even think about patching.

“Guidance” helps the user through key features of the console, allowing them to learn and refresh their skills at their own pace.

“Colour” is at the core of the operating architecture, providing quick and accurate control of color changing fixtures via the four encoder wheels and the 7” multi-touch display -- offering Zero 88’s award winning color and image picking interfaces and access to “mood boards by LEE Filters.”

Moving lights can be intuitively controlled using the multi-touch pan / tilt grid or the encoder wheels hugely popular and familiar to the majority of console operators or by applying automatic movement effects such as “figure 8,” “rainbow,” and “fly-in.”

For speed, convenience, and familiarity, regular functions have dedicated buttons rather than “soft” unlabelled buttons that keep changing, and there is a master GO button for theatrical style 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 their shows. Apple Watch users can also benefit from using their device as a focus tool.

Enhanced connectivity includes two USB ports, an Ethernet / networking port, both five-pin and three-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.

FLX S’ two extremely compact and lightweight control solutions with tidy footprints are ideal for touring, traveling, or fixed installations. FLX S24 has been built to fit within a 19” rack enclosure.

The range is designed for universal appeal, and is manufactured in the UK. It is especially 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.
