December 20, 2012


Acuity Brands is pleased to add Easyl™ Touch to our family of DMX RGB control products. Easyl Touch improves control of RGB LED luminaires with an astronomic time clock, intuitive scheduling and remote station support. The color LCD touch screen allows users to modify preprogrammed shows to create subtle or dramatic eye-catching lighting effects. Easyl’s intuitive user interface and show preview bar invite users to play.

The Easyl Touch is ideal for:
• Restaurants
• Bars
• Lobbies
• Museums
• Retail displays
• Building facades

DMX512-A Compatible
Easyl Touch is compliant with DMX512-A, which means it can work with virtually any DMX luminaire, including those with RDM support. Control, programming and maintenance of DMX color-changing lighting have never been easier. Pairing Easyl Touch with the Parata flood from Winona Lighting or other DMX RGB luminaires from Acuity Brands ensures the highest level of performance and quality from a single source.

Additional Features

  • Astronomic Time Clock: starts shows, plays a color, triggers a rainbow, or turns off based on time of day or offset from sunrise and sunset
  • Battery Backup: keeps clock running for 10+ years in case of power failure
  • Accessory Control Stations: hard button or touch screens station allow control from up to 3 locations
