ETC: PhaseAdept LED Dimming for Legacy Systems

Stage Directions

Many organizations would love to harness the energy-saving features of LEDs, but the associated costs of installing new wiring, power control infrastructure, and control systems to dim these loads have kept many from upgrading. With ETC’s new PhaseAdept dimmer module, venues now have a cost-effective, simple to install solution to capitalize on the benefits of LED lighting. The PhaseAdept module fits into any vintage of Sensor, DRd, or DR enclosure – including those already installed – and provides high-quality, low-voltage dimming for LED fixtures and lamps over existing wiring.
