QolorFLEX Dimmer

QolorFLEX® 3x10A Dimmer (Legacy Product)

City Theatrical's QolorFLEX® 3x10A Dimmer (P/N 5620) was designed to provide exceptional power and flexibility in a low voltage DC control unit. The QolorFLEX® 3x10A 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.

Title Description
pdf QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and QolorFLEX 3x10A Dimmers at Hudson New York, a Morgans Original hotel in New York City

The Hudson Hotel, known for its daring design aesthetic, has two prominent escalators at the focal point of its entrance on West 58th Street in New York City.

Yellowish green neon tubes were originally installed under the handrails, running the entire length of the escalators, to match the color scheme and aesthetic of the rest of the hotel.

Over time, the neon deteriorated and faded significantly. The high cost of repairs and consistent foot traffic made it difficult to maintain the look of the entrance for hotel guests.

The Hudson Hotel reached out to City Theatrical dealer Barbizon Lighting Company for help with improving their main entrance and updating their escalator lighting.

City Theatrical suggested that QolorFlex NuNeon, an LED product that resembles neon tube, could be a solution for this project. As an extremely bright and flexible sealed LED linear product, QolorFLEX NuNeon was selected because it is unbreakable, with a high bend radius that allows for easy manipulation, and could be cut to length on site. Unlike traditional neon, QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB can be controlled to produce any color, including yellow.

QolorFLEX NuNeon could also run in a complete straight line over the length of the escalators rather than being broken up by power inputs for the neon tubes.
