OSRAM presents their first 3-channel DMX dimmer

With its Optotronic OT RGB DMX dimmer, OSRAM has now entered the world of DMX 3-channel dimmers for LED systems. Since DMX supports up to 512 individually addressable channels, the new dimmer lends itself particularly well to creating effect-oriented lighting in discotheques, theatres or concert halls, as well as to the large-area illumination of architecture.
The Optotronic range from OSRAM includes control gear units, dimmers and "all in one" devices specially designed for use in LED lighting. The new dimmer now makes it possible to integrate LED systems such as OSRAM Linearlight Colormix, Linearlight Colormix Flex or Backlight easily into DMX Digital Multiplex universe. The new dimmer utilises pulse width modulation (PWM) to permit individual colour mixing of LED modules over the whole dimming range. The connected modules are addressed via the coding switches in the housing cover. Control is accomplished by means of a commercially available DMX controller. Due to its compact, flat dimensions, the dimmer is suited for any - even narrow - installation situation. The integrated strain relief and the covers on both input and control side ensure a safe and independent installation.

The unit meets the requirements of protection class II (protective insulation) and can be used indoors and outdoors in temperatures of -20 to 50°C. Featuring a rated input voltage range of 10 to 24V and low power loss, the dimmer is supplied via an Optotronic control gear unit with a power range of up to 2A per channel. Consequently, one dimmer can, for example, control two four-metre modules of the OSRAM Linearlight Colormix Flex.
