The connection of the dimmer is through a three phase or on phase power supply depending on the power you need. The suggested connected cable for maximum power is 5 x 6 cable more specifically (3 phases – neutral –earth).
The dimmer works digitally. The connection DMX achieved through the front panel with input male XLR 3 PINS (pins 1 earth – pins 2 (+) and pin 3 (-)) and the XLR female with the same connection pattern.
The 3 red led indicates the voltage supply (RST), the green led indicates the DMX communication (DATA) and the last red led indicates the faulty communication (error) .
The displays indicates the number of the DMX channels (001-512).
The Button up/down is used to increase or decrease the number of the channels for instance (001,002,003 and so on).
The button (+/-) manual check is used for the control of the channels.
The connection of the electrical loads at the output of the dimmer is archived with 12 A schuko plugs.
When you connect the dimmer switch on the 3 breakers. The red led switch on and the display indicates error (no communication). To begin the communication with the dimmer we connect the input plug DMX with the console. The displays saws 001 and the led DATA switch on. The channel of the console that starts the dimmer is the one indicated by the display of the dimmer.
If the dimmer saws 001 that means that the dimmer is connected with the console from the channels 1 to 6 (1-6). If the dimmer saws the number 002 that means that the dimmer is connected with the channels 2 to 7 (2-7). Consequently an indication of 003 means the dimmer is connected with channels 3-8 and so on.
If you wish to connect more dimmers you can do it by using the DMX out plug.
If there is any led that is not switched on that means that there is a faulty connection. If you wish to check the channels of the dimmer (manual check) hold the buttons (+/-) together for 3 seconds. The first display should saws 1 and the second and the third 0. By pressing the button up you gradually increase the percentage of lighting of the channel. The displays 2 and 3 indicates the percentage of lighting of the channel from 00 to 99. Check the rest of the channels in the same way by holding the buttons (+/-).
The first display always indicates the channel number and the other two the percentage of lighting of the channel. If you wish to check all the channels together at the master state the first display must be at the number 7.
To return the dimmer at the initial position after completing the manual check press at the same time the buttons (+/-). Minimum electrical load required 15 watt.
