QolorFLEX® 5x2.5A Multiverse® Dimmer

City Theatrical's QolorFLEX® 5x2.5A Multiverse® Dimmer (P/Ns 5942 and 5943) is a constant voltage, five-output dimmer that can be controlled wirelessly using City Theatrical’s Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM* or SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX/RDM technology, or with wired DMX. This dimmer provides 20-bit PWM resolution and six DMX personality options (including: 8-bit (5ch), 16-bit (10ch), 8-bit Tunable White Single (2ch), 16-bit Tunable White Single (4ch), 8-bit Tunable White (4ch), and 16-bit Tunable White (8ch)) for extremely smooth dimming at the low end of the dimming curve. It uses detachable input and output connectors to make wiring easy.

Configuration is performed using RDM, such as with a City Theatrical DMXcat®, or with City Theatrical’s USB Configuration program for PC/Mac. A mounting bracket is included with the Dimmer to allow easy mounting to scenery. This dimmer is designed and built in the USA by City Theatrical. It pairs perfectly with QolorFLEX 5-in-1 LED Tape for ideal use in props and costumes, or for areas where space is a concern.

“Multiverse wireless DMX is being used in the auditorium to control the QolorFLEX LED Tape in locations that we cannot pull new DMX wiring to, like the fascia/facing of our loge areas. There is a single QolorFLEX 5x2.5A Multiverse Dimmer in each location that allows us to control the new QolorFLEX Warm White LED Tape from our main lighting console.”
