Description

The most powerful RC4Magic Series 3 dimmer, the DMX6dim-500 provides six dimmers with a total current capacity of 42 Amps — that’s 500W at 12V, 1000W at 24V. 

This low-voltage, high powered 4-channel wireless dimmer is ideal for (RGBA/WW/CW) LEDs, lamps, props, costumes, motors and more. It also includes the RC4 Wireless Two-Year Warranty, which is the best in the industry.

RC4 digital persistance iconIt includes 19-bit dimming, which is eight times finer than 16-bit with a whopping 524,000 steps of resolution. The digital persistance for ISL dimming curve simulates the behavior of a tungsten lamp for LED with no visible stepping.

For users, this means exceptionally smooth LED dimming, especially at the bottom end of the curve, which can be problematic.

OneTouch

RC4 wireless key featureThe RC4 Series 3 DMX2dim provides two versatile dimmer outputs.  Like all RC4Magic devices, it includes a built-in radio receiver and uses RC4 OneTouch™ for easy assignment of any DMX channel and dimmer curve to any dimmer with a single press of a single button.

PRIVATE IDENTITIES™

RC4 Magic private ids data encryptionRC4 Private IDentities™ securely encrypts your wireless data transmission and is used exclusively in the RC4 Magic series.

RDM

RDM (remote device management) for RC4 dimmersDevice configuration can also be done with Remote Device Management (RDM) and RC4MagicPC Remote Configuration Software.

HSL Color Controller

Three channels are ideal for hybrid-white LED color-mixing, to transition between different color temperatures of white.  The RC4 Hue/Saturation/Level (HSL) Color Controller delivers best-in-class color consistency over the entire dimming range, ensuring precise mix ratios even at very low dimmer levels using 16-bit (65,536 step) dimming.  Unlike single-channel DMX control of color from a console, which is limited to 256 steps and becomes heavily quantized at low levels, the RC4 HSL Color Controller maintains high ratiometric precision throughout the dimming range.

ColorMatch

RC4 wireless key featureIn addition, RC4 ColorMatch™ on the DMX6dim-500 makes it easy to calibrate intensity between two light sources.

PWM

RC4 wireless key featureMany pulse-width-modulation (PWM) dimmers look good to the human eye, but produce banding, blinking, and other anomalies when used with video cameras. For this reason, all RC4 Series 3 dimmers provide multiple PWM frequencies.  Low frequencies are most efficient, ideal for high-wattage incandescent lighting. Mid frequencies improve the appearance of LEDs by eliminating visible strobing in human peripheral vision.  High frequencies eliminate video artifacts.  And finally, supersonic PWM frequencies, though least efficient for power handling, provide PWM dimming without audio interference when used near microphones and electrified musical instruments.

MOTOR CONTROL

RC4 wireless key featureThis dimmer can control the speed and direction of DC motors, stepper motors and the position of hobby servo motors.

For direction control, a second dimmer output can be used to flip a relay that reverses the DC motor connectors – polarity of power directly controls spin direction.

DMX IN/OUT

The DMX6dim-500, and all RC4 Series 3 dimmers, provide a wired DMX data port.  In most cases this port is used to output data to nearby fixtures including fog machines, moving lights, and projector dousers.  The DMX port can also be configured as a DMX input, allowing the DMX2dim to be used as a wired dimmer.  In this mode, a comprehensive RDM implementation includes E1.37 dimmer configuration parameters, numerous status sensors (voltage, temperature, current), and each individual dimmer appears as an RDM sub-device.

The internal wireless DMX receiver operates identically to the RC4Magic Series 3 DMXio in receiver mode.  The RC4 DMX miniplug port can used with a range of DMX adaptors, including 3-pin and 5-pin male and female XLR connectors.  The most common adaptor is the DMX-OUT adaptor with 5-pin female XLR connector.

Connection

Anderson Powerpole connections are provided for connection of the power supply (DC IN) and load devices (DimA to DimF). The supply powers both the internal electronics and the connected loads. Dimmers switch on the negative side of the circuit, ideal for common-anode (common positive) LED tape.  Dimmer output voltage is precisely the DC power input voltage with no appreciable losses within the 42 Amps total power handling limit of the device.
