Anytronics Series 163 D1212 (12 x 12A) 3U Hardwired Dimmer/Switchpack

Product Code ANRP111
Manufacturer Anytronics

Request more information or contact us now for purchasing information.


The D1212 rack mounting dimming pack is 3U high and provides 12 dimming channels each of which is rated at 12A and fully protected by a C13 output circuit breaker with neutral disconnection when required. These packs can be powered from single, double or three phase supplies via the substantial internal connection block. Output circuit connectors are mounted on the rear panel of the equipment and would typically be 2 or 4 Socapex sockets, 2 or 4 Harting connectors, or either 12 or 24 IEC sockets. Typical applications include use in touring racks, and for permanent installations in theatres, studios and schools. An alternative hardwired version for permanent installation provides rear access to the internal screw terminal output connections.

On board level controls (with a Master level control), analogue 0-10V inputs and a choice of none, one or two DMX inputs provide a full range of input options. The input levels on each control source can be seen independently on the comprehensive bargraph menu system which also allows easy setting of preheat, manual level, maximum level, dimming or switching and slew rate on a channel by channel basis, or when required, for all channels at once. The DMX addresses for the two DMX inputs can be set independently using this menu system together with a choice of action after DMX disconnection. Three alternative cooling control regimes for the two thermostatically controlled fans may also be set using this menu system.
