    D1 Dimmer (Discontinued)

    Share this page:

    The D1 Dimmer provides smooth and flexible DMX controlled 12-24VDC dimming with four user-selectable output modes:  two incandescent dimmer curves (ISL and linear), LED and non-dim. The individual DMX addressing, built-in bump button, and color-coded 30A Anderson Powerpole input and output connectors all work together to make the D1 Dimmer practical and easy to use.

    The D1 Dimmer is ruggedly constructed and equipped for the temporary installations and harsh use conditions typical of standard entertainment industry rental applications.

    Anderson Connectors

    City Theatrical uses 30A Anderson Power Pole connectors to connect loads to our low voltage dimmers.  These connectors require a special crimping tool.  Instructions for crimping can be found in the downloads section below.

With direction by Sam Mendes, set and costumes by Mark Thompson, and Lighting Design by Paul Pyant, it is this summer's golden ticket.
