    After a few years of work the Elos Evision controller and accessories are ready for the limelight. The high gloss Elos Evision control center offers a color touch screen in a rectangular form factor.

    For the Evision, Elos has taken a modular approach with offerings which include:

    • Clima – Evision temperature module
    • Tempo – Evision timer module
    • LED dimmer – Evision dimmer for Elos LED compatible luminaires
    • ORP – Evision ORP monitor and control
    • pH – Evision pH monitor

    Elos has also put some effort into developing a web interface. Check out this video as Nic, in Singapore for Aquarama, observes the office aquarium, in Italy, via remote video… and changes the colors of the aquarium’s Elite XP through an internet connection.

    On paper the initial Elos Evision controller offering looks quite solid and is a significant advancement from the previous Biotopus II. Then comes practicality and of course cost. Whisper numbers suggest the control center will be near the $400 to $500 USD, which will certainly not be helped by the plunging dollar.

    I’m admittedly not a huge fan of the aesthetics of this product (a personal first for an Elos range?)–but I am curious to see how Elos packages and bundles the complete offering as each module is quite large. We’ll see… as always Elos is never one to ignore looks and its understood they have a few more tricks up their sleeves. And remember, LED dimming is always a large question mark / elephant in the room, thanks to Orbitec’s award winning product patent.
