Rack Mount Dimmer
The LDS DR-12000 is a twelve
channel, 1200 watt per channel dimmer pack, designed to provide quality,
compact dimming at a reasonable price. The DR-12000 is fan cooled and uses
a 25 amp rated triac on each channel to provide plenty of "head-room".
Each channel also has two U-Ground outlets, toroidal filtering, and is
protected by a 10 amp breaker. The control section of the dimmer is protected
by two 0.25 amp breakers and features a thermal protect indicator, full
override/test switches for each channel, and a preheat level control for
each group of six channels. Control input is a via a front-mounted fourteen
pin military style Amphenol connector, or via a rear-mounted Cinch-Jones
connector. This combination of input connectors allows easy "daisy-chaining"
of almost any number of DR-12000s. The DR-12000 combines all these features
in a standard nineteen inch rack mountable package only seven inches high,
with a very attractive dollar per watt ratio. Designed to be used with
the Light Design Systems LC 12-10 or LC
24-14 Control Desks, the DR-12000 dimmer pack can be controlled by
almost any control desk using a 0 to +10v control voltage.
CHANNEL, 10 AMPS/CHANNEL DIMMER PACK
DENSITY DIMMING; 19" RACK MOUNT, 7" HIGH
OVERRIDE SWITCHES WITH LED LEVEL INDICATORS
MOUNTED ADJUSTABLE PREHEAT CONTROLS
U-GROUND RECEPTACLES FOR EACH CHANNEL
VERSION ALSO AVAILABLE (DR-12000H)
Also available is the DR-12000H,
designed for applications where hardwiring the outputs is more practical.
Having the same technical specifications as the DR-12000, the DR-12000H
dimmer pack replaces the front-mounted U-Ground outputs with a rear-mounted
terminal strip. The Amphenol input connector has been eliminated and control
input is via the rear-mounted Cinch-Jones connector.
The DR-12000H is ideal for
use in permanent installations where hardwire dimmers are preferred. It
can also be used in larger touring systems where custom output connectors
and patch system are utilized.
CAPABILITY: 10 Amps per channel.
INPUT: 0 to +10vDC.

CONNECTOR: Two 15 amp U-Ground receptacles per channel (DR-12000). Rear-mounted
terminal strip with wiring enclosure (DR-12000H).
