The LT100 has 2 serial ports and 2 IR ports making it perfect to control a small, stand-alone room. Remote Control FLEX-LT150 – The LT150 is a specialized member of the Flex Family. It is intended to be used when only Ethernet equipped devices need to be controlled, or as an additional touch panel for the LT200 or LT300. FLEX-LT200 – The LT200 is the fully equipped member of the Flex Family. It features the full complement of serial, IR, GPIO and Ethernet ports and is the right choice for larger installations or where network connectivity is required. T6-FLEX – The T6-FLEX has the same features as the LT200 with addition of being encased in one of our elegant T6 table boxes. The interior compartment can be populated with a variety of AC and AV connector plates available from FSR. FLEX LT-300 FLEX-LT300 – The LT300 is another specialty member of the Flex Family. The LT300 is basically an LT-200 in a box without a touchscreen. The LT300 can be mounted in a rack or Ceiling Box and connected to all of the devices that need to be controlled. The user interface to the LT300 is provided either by a FLEX-LT200 or LT150 or the Flex Remote Windows application.

Lit 1359B THE A PEEK UNDER THE HOOD Every AV equipped boardroom and classroom could benefit from a control system. With one, the entire room can be manipulated from a simple touch. The Flex control system is a small, powerful and affordable solution perfect for nearly any installation. It features a 3.5” color LCD touchscreen and all of the connectivity needed to control the lighting, shades and every piece of AV equipment installed all from one central location. The Flex can be mounted in a wall, podium, desktop or boardroom table. Multiple Flex panels can be used within a room so that room control is always convenient. A Flex can also be remotely controlled from a Windows computer using the Flex Remote Control software. The software connects to the Flex installed in the room and replicates the screen on the desktop. LIGHTING SHADES SCREEN SOUND DOC CAM PROJECTOR DVD/BLU RAY CABLE/DVR With the touch of a finger or a click of the mouse, Flex places control of your room at your fingertip. THE FLEX SOFTWARE COMPUTER RUNNING FLEX MANAGER NETWORK Flex Manager has a built-in scheduler that can command the Flex panels to turn on or off and lock them to prevent unwanted use during off hours. Flex Manager’s Scheduler is also a money saver by turning each projector off at the end of the day to prevent unnecessary hours being placed on the projector bulbs. Flex Manager can also monitor the lamp life of each projector. With this information a replacement bulb can be obtained and kept on hand for when the bulbs burn out. · 3.5” Color LCD Touchscreen – Provides a bright, interactive, easy to use and engaging interface for the simplest or most complex task. · Network Port – The Network Port on the Flex can serve many purposes. First, it can supply power to the Flex via Power over Ethernet or PoE. Attach a Flex to a PoE switch and there is no need to attach an additional power supply. The second function of the Network Port is to give the Flex the capability to communicate with other Network equipped devices including other Flex Panels. The third function of the Network Port is to allow applications from the Flex Software Suite to communicate with the Flex panel to provide usage statistics, remote Help Desk services and automated scheduling. · Up to 4 Serial Ports – Serial is still the most common way to control a device such as a projector, audio / video switcher and much more. With up to 4 Serial Ports a Flex control system is ready to meet your needs. For iPad, iPhone Android tablets and phones. Available from the app store. · Up to 4 IR Ports – While serial has many advantages, several devices such as DVD players, DVR’s and cable boxes require IR control. The Flex Control Panel has up to 4 IR ports and each is capable of driving multiple emitters. · 4 GPIO Ports – GPIO ports are unique in that they can be inputs or outputs and can be very handy. When set as an input, a GPIO port can be triggered from a contact closure or a switch to tell the Flex to do something. As an output, a GPIO port can control devices with compatible inputs such as screens, drapes, etc… TABLETS AND SMARTPHONES RUNNING FLEX APP SOFTWARE TOOLS FOR MANAGERS AND ADMINISTRATORS Flex Manager is at the heart of the Flex Software Suite. It provides managers and administrators with the current state and health of each Flex Panel, as well as accumulating usage statistics beneficial for budget planning and justification. · Small Footprint – The Flex Control Panel can be mounted in a wall in a standard 2 gang opening or mounted on a desk, shelf or podium with the optional DSKB-2 mounting bracket. FLEX HELP DESK Flex Help Desk is a stand alone application intended to be used by the IT or AV departments in a help desk capacity. It scans the network for all Flex panels and monitors their current condition. Should a help call come in, the person manning the help desk can sign onto the Flex in the troubled room and remotely operate it. The Help Desk operator shown is an exact replica of the Flex panel in the room allowing quick and simple remote control to help the room get back up and running.
