Redback Wallmount Range released
Posted on Wednesday, February 9th, 2011
LSC Lighting Systems is proud to announce the release of the new Redback Wallmount range previewed at PLASA last year. More than just a dimmer, the new Redback sports a number of new features including, optional relay channels, RDM, various output connector configurations, external wallplate control and a ‘slim figure’.
A Redback Wallmount may be specified to be a combination of conventional dimmers and/or relay channels to power LEDs and intelligent lighting fixtures. For example, a 24 channel ‘combo’ unit provides 18 channels of dimming as well as 6 channels of relay in the same chassis.
In addition, the relay modules can be configured to be switched on or off using DMX512, auto-powered – to improve energy efficiency – or controlled via a number of other methods in the same fashion that the standard dimming channels may be controlled.
The relay outputs provide direct power by utilising physical relays thus guaranteeing there is absolutely no electronics in the way to interfere with connected loads.
Available in a variety of models, the new Redbacks are slim-line wall mounted units permitting them to be located in areas where depth is a concern such as narrow cupboards or along walkways or catwalks.
A number of different output socket combinations are available as well as a hardwired version. A unique patch version using GST18 connectors permits double output sockets as well as a hotpower connection providing unique flexibility in such a system. Used in conjunction with the soon to be released Redback Patch system the combination is an answer to many a specifier’s dream.
