QolorFLEX Dimmer

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.

These 5942/43 Dimmers draw 0.45W in wireless mode and 0.35W in wired mode.

“I like how easy it is to start using Multiverse wireless DMX and I always remember how to use it every time I work with Joy. It’s definitely a trusted system. Show ID and Show KEY are the best things since sliced bread.”

- Anna McKindley, Fixtures Technician, Stranger Things, Season 4

Stranger Things is a TV Horror show with four seasons since it was first released on Netflix in 2016. The show is set in a small town that uncovers a mystery involving secret experiments and supernatural forces. Dual band Multiverse® Transmitter (P/N 5910) and Multiverse Node (P/N 5902) and 13 miniature QolorFLEX® 2x2.5A 900MHz Multiverse Dimmers (P/N 5917) were used during filming the most recent season four for their smooth wireless DMX dimming control and reliability on the 900MHz band. The dimmers were installed on bicycles and within flashlight props to drive 30W LEDs, which put out enough heat to melt plastic. City Theatrical talked to Fixtures Technician Anna McKindley about Multiverse at the show.
