The Extron TLC Pro 521M is a convenient, all-in-one 5” wall mount touchpanel with a built-in control processor. This easy to use, fully-configurable TouchLink® controller combines a vibrant touchscreen with powerful AV system control and enhanced security. The TLC Pro 521M has the same highly-responsive, capacitive touchscreen as the TLP Pro 520M TouchLink Pro Touchpanel, and adds a secure, powerful control processor, producing a feature-packed touchpanel controller in a compact form factor. For ease of integration, Power over Ethernet - PoE allows the controller to receive power and communication over a single Ethernet cable. The TLC Pro 521M is ideal for classrooms, boardrooms, or any presentation environment requiring the visual appeal of a touchpanel and the control options found within Extron control processors.

The TLC Pro 521M can be customized using Extron GUI Designer software. This powerful interface design software offers ready-to-use templates for a wide variety of rooms and presentation environments. It is configured using Extron Global Configurator® Plus or Global Configurator Professional software. The TLC Pro 521M also integrates seamlessly with Extron’s award-winning GlobalViewer® Enterprise software for complete AV resource monitoring, management, and control over a computer network.
