    CD80 Rack Module questions

    I've been asked to come up with a wish list for one of the high school theaters I manage and some new lighting came to mind immediately. I'm looking into getting some LED cyc lights (Spectra Cyc 50s) to replace our current incandescent units, but I'd like to provide power to them using our...

    LMI SD-6000 dimmer

    Not really any questions to answer with this one, was just going through some pallets of old gear and stumbled across this monster. Interesting form factor, technically a dimmer pack, although only one channel (that appears to be rated at 6k), and a built-in fader for convenience. I'll have to...

    Control/Dimming Possibly a basic question...attach 13A lamp to dimmer socket?

    Hello - possibly a dumb question but my knowledge is a little basic!I'm looking at maybe having a practical household lamp on stage as part of a show, but I want to be able to dim it from my lighting desk.

    Control/Dimming Old Lighting Control System What are they

    We have this old dimmer/control pack from the late 80s / early 90s, and we were wondering if anyone had any idea on what they could be, and if there's anything left that could still potentially control it. If anyone has any ideas as to what they could be or any links that may be hard to find...

    Source Four Leko for Filmmaking - lamp burned out immediately

    Hello all,As title suggests, I bought a Source Four Leko 750 to use for indie filmmaking. I have some experience with these lights from working as a volunteer stagehand and periodically on film sets, but am by no means an electrician and feel like I'm in over my head. Saw lots of good info on...

    Convert DMX to 10v analog

    I recently started working at one of the few remaining outposts of 0-10v analog dimmer control. The desk is a grumpy old Leprecon 624. I would like to use ETC Nomad or some other DMX control so the question is: is there a way to convert DMX to 10v analog on a budget?

    Lycian Xenon Spot On Dimmer

    I found a Lycan Miget HP on a dimmer. Is this ok to do? It is running off an ETC Cem3 dimmer, the level for the spotlight was set from the dimmer's cpu, not the desk.

    Control/Dimming Sensor+ Dimmer Rack Dimmers Failing

    I am working with a Sensor+ Dimmer rack with R25D2 Dimmers. They keep on failing. Either not actually outputting power or not outputting consistently. The person that installed the rack entered the dimmer types in as R20D units. Could this be causing my problems?

    ETC Sensor3 "switched" D20 v relay/thrupower

    Our space is transitioning bit by bit to LED and I have a few questions:1. Some of the fixtures are conventional source4s with source4wrd retro units attached. I know these are designed to safely be dimmer dimmed but the quality is awful unless maybe you have more than one fixture on one...

    Unrecognized Dimming Receptacle

    Hello,I was looking at the lighting situation in a dining hall in MIT's student center and they built in some stage pin and dimmer boxes around the room, likely when they first built the building. I don't recognize the connections for the dimmer and was wondering if anyone here could identify...

    Vintage Lighting Vintage Century Strand dimmer

    Hi Folks,I'm trying to track down schematics for some old (1974 I think) Strand dimmers. There are no markings on the rack, the individual dimmer modules say "Model 306." There are 4kw, 6kw, and 12kw variants. Here's a couple images if that helps:Image:IMG_20170418_155807.jpg|none...
