Acclaim Lighting unveils its Universal Dimming Module (UDM), a multi-protocol driver designed to allow conversions between popular control protocols that allow for maximum control flexibility and integration with fixtures. The UDM also features digital line voltage dimming ability.

The UDM inputs are DMX and 0-10V, while its outputs are DMX, 0-10V, and IGBT digital line voltage dimming. Operating with 0-10V Sink Power, the unit can deliver an output of 25ma drive current. Mode setting can be achieved by utilizing the on-board dip switch or RDM. The module can intake a voltage of 1,000 watts at 120VAC or 2,000 watts at 240VAC, while outputting 100-277VAC or 50/60 Hz via TRIAC. AC options include 90-277AC pass-through while using DMX to allow power output to fixtures.

Featuring eight- and 16-bit dimming, the unit hosts one input and one output via ½-inch conduit nipples. In addition, the IP66-rated UDM operates in temperatures ranging from -31 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit and in wet locations. Its aluminum housing ensures that neither dust nor water will harm the unit. In addition, the UDM has transient voltage protection and DMX isolation.

The UDM weighs 1lb and its dimensions are: 10.26” L x 5.16” W x 1.76” H (260 L x 131 W x 45H mm). Certifications include cETLus, CE, RoHS. It’s available in black and carries a five-year limited warranty.
