DX3 Dimming


DX2 120 and DX2 30

Lehigh's DX3 dimming system builds on the foundation of the successful DX2 system offering improved performance with a 600Mhz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and dedicated three-phase dimming controller, RDM support, USB ports, Ethernet, built-in ride-thru circuit, and a capacitive touch user interface for system configuration.

With 30 to 120 dimmers, the DX3 series racks are ideal for small to large projects including professional and educational theatres, television studios, hotels, churches, and convention centers. Dimmers include dual 2.4KW forward phase modules with 350, 500, and 800 microseconds rise time options, and dual 2kW ELV reverse phase control module. Other modules include a dual EB-rated non-dim relay, constant circuits, and dimmable fluorescent ballast control.

The System control module (SCM) provides the sophisticated control functions required for theatrical or architectural with an integrated architectural controls interface compatible with Lehigh's Collage Impress architectural controls to provide a seamless interface between a theater's stage and house light controls or to function as a dedicated architectural control and dimming system. In addition, system wide presets are provided for capture and recall of both stage and house lighting.

Ethernet connectivity is provided for control, monitoring, programming, and subsystem networking. The DX3 accepts DMX512 over Ethernet protocols.

The Window-based DxDirector software application is used to configure the DX3 system via a PC using either Ethernet or the USB device port on the SCM.

DX3 is available with the SCM or without for DMX only applications. It is also available in 120V and 277V versions.

DX Director Software

DxDirector II and DxDirector Setup software is a Windows™ based program for the setup, configuration, editing, and control of DX3/2 Dimming systems. DxDirector II is the latest software that provides full support for Collage Impress Touch stations.The recommended minimum requirements are a PC running Windows™ XP SP1 through Windows &. DxDirector will NOT run on earlier versions of Windows™. DxDirector || and DxDirector can communicate with DX racks using RS-232 which is standard or through ethernet. If RS-232 is used, the PC must also have an RS-232 "COM" port or alternately a USB to RS-232 converter cable with accompanying driver software. If your Dx rack has an ethernet connection and you wish to control it that way your PC will need a Cat-5 ethernet connection to connect to the Dx rack network.

Note - There are two DXDirector II downloads available. One is DXDirector II, the other is the firmware update for the DX2 dimming system. The firmware package is installed on the PC with DxDirector II which will manage the actual firmware update using these installed files. DO NOT download these files unless you are already using DxDirector II and the firmware in the rack is V6.0 or greater. Firmware versions prior to V6.0 use DxDirector and DX2 firmware V5.42.
