PD series PROTOCOL Dimmers & Switch packs
                                    Dimmers and Switches  PROTOCOL Lighting Control Systems                  Made in the USA

PD Series Dimmer and Switch Packs

The PROTOCOL lighting control system simply consists of two main components  the PSFxx control stations  and the PD Series Dimmer and Switch Modules.

( available for LED PWM dimming and Voltage DC loads dimming)

 

PD Series DIMMER Modules can handle a total of 4000 watts and come in 2, 4 and 8 circuit dimmers and switches versions.  ( compatible with Fluorescent power line dimmable ballasts , QUICKTRONIC POWERSENSE , Mark 10 Powerline, etc... )

 

PD Series DIMMER Modules could be controlled from a computer / PC or integrated with other Audio Visual  or lighting Control systems through the RAU-96  interface.

 

Each PD Series Module has a built in processor, Memory and self contained power supply. The PD Series Modules communicate directly with the Protocol wall stations using only one twisted pair of DATA wires from the system low voltage 4-wire bus.

 

The PD Dimmers come in compact surface mountable aluminum enclosures and can be distributed to convenient locations near the electrical panels or close to their loads to minimize line-voltage wire runs. Switch packs have a hardware lock for non dimming loads only with features and specifications similar to the Dimmer packs without the RFI filters.

 

PROTOCOL dimmers and control stations could be interconnected through wireless RS485 links.

PD Series Dimmers Features:

  • Automatic 60 / 50 Hz frequency detection.

  • Self contained dimmers with distributed Processing in each unit.

  • Dimmers DATA connects with CAT5 / RJ45 network cables.( uses last pair only )

  • Outputs could be used as Dimmers and Switches combined in same module.

  • Controls all kinds of TRIAC OR SCR dimmable loads.( leading edge dimmers )

  • Each Dimmer has 254 Preset scenes stored in nonvolatile memory in PDxxx modules.

  • Individual output Min and Max trim adjustment.

  • Powerful built-in diagnostics.

  • Convenient front panel LED output monitors.

  • Compact size ; walll mountable.

  • PD216;PD408,PD804 dim: 11.75" H x 8.30" W x 4.12" D .

  • PD404 dim : 11.50" H x 4.60 W x 3.30" D.

  • Durable aluminum wall-mount enclosure specially engineered for heat dissipation..

  • Also available in 220/240VAC, 24VAC & 12VAC.   

  • Simple to install and operate.

  • UL-Listed for both US and Canada (120VAC,24VAC,12VAC)
