Element 40 




Designed for venues using primarily conventional lighting, the Element control console provides the powerful features of the Eos system in an economical and simplified package. In addition to keypad commands, True LTP Channel Faders provide hands-on control of intensity and can be used to set manual levels and edit recorded cues and submasters. Moving Light Controls are available to facilitate the use of conventional accessories like moving mirror heads, color scrollers or gobo rotators, or to make controlling small numbers of moving lights simple and direct. Element can be backed up by another Element, ETCnomad™ 1024 dongle or ETCnomad Puck™1024 mini-computer.
