ETC conducting dimmer load survey

ETC is conducting the first ever “Connected Load Survey” to begin the process of understanding whether the lighting community is over-sizing, under-sizing, or right-sizing dimmer systems.

Fifteen years after the question “How much power is necessary?” first came up, we know very little about the loads actually connected to dimming systems for a given production.

Lower wattage lamps are now the norm, but system power feeds, dimmer sizes, and building cooling systems are often designed by tradition and intuition—not facts. The result may be the expenditure of millions of “empty dollars.”

ETC wants to know how the lighting community uses their systems and you can be a part of the discovery!

Our goal is to gather connected load information on 100,000 channels of dimming in a wide variety of venues.
