CCI Announces Breakthrough Power Supply Technology for Phase Cut LED Dimming

Powered by CCI’s new DimMaster™ LED phase-cut power supply technology, dimmable LED fixtures can now be developed to match the dimming performance of incandescent fixtures. Notably, the technology supports the transition of high performance lighting applications to LED, by seamlessly blending highly cost-efficient LED lamp fixtures into existing incandescent lighting arrays. Users can make this transition without investing in new dimmers or consoles, and without new wiring, because dimming is driven by the power supply within the LED lamp fixture.

DimMaster™ LED power supply technology enables retrofitted LED's to match the full color and dimming spectrum of incandescent lighting for architectural, theater, church, stadium, studio, and other high performance lighting applications. The new technology enables CCI’s power supplies to work with autotransformer, rheostat, thryristor and IGBT dimmers to support both older and newer dimming formats.

“In response to growing market demands, our R&D has been working on this technology breakthrough for several years,” said Terri Montante, President and CEO of the company. “Soon, venue owners, designers and producers can transition to a new generation of dimmable LED lighting fixtures driven by DimMaster™ LED power supply technology. They will at last be able to sustain the high performance lighting traits they have become accustomed to with incandescent, but with all the cost saving advantages of LED. They can make this transition as their budgets allow.”
