SHoW DMX® Dimmers

Low Voltage Dimmers

The 5620 SHoW DMX Three Channel 10A Dimmer was designed to provide exceptional power and flexibility in a low voltage DC control unit.  The D3 Dimmer can be configured as three separate 10A dimmers, two 15A dimmers, or one 30A dimmer.  It will operate with any DC voltage between 9-24VDC and can be used with batteries or with mains-powered DC power supplies to control 3 channels of LEDs, Incandescent lamps, effects, or any other device that runs on 9-24V DC power.  The 3 channel configuration is ideal for controlling RGB LED systems. Each dimmer channel can be separately configured with any of four different output profiles, including ISL curve dimming (for incandescent loads), linear dimming, LED dimming with five TV/Film Modes and six smoothing options, or Non-Dim operation.  The unit may be configured either locally via the Button pad and LCD user interface, or via RDM.
