Now you can make LED dimming on legacy systems easier with PhaseAdept

ETC PhaseAdept

Do you have a legacy ETC Sensor dimming system and find issues with line dimming LED fixtures and lamps? Electronic Theatre Controls announced they are now shipping its new PhaseAdept dimming module. 

PhaseAdept provides high-quality line dimming for LED fixtures and lamps. It is compatible with any vintage of ETC Sensor, DRd, or DR-series power enclosure, either shipping from the factory or already in the field. Because PhaseAdept works in legacy panels, a venue can use their existing power control system and the lighting system infrastructure can remain intact, expediting the renovation process and delivering tremendous cost savings.

PhaseAdept produces smooth, continuous control no matter the fixture type, features forward- and reverse-phase dimming options, and has multiple dimming curve settings. Remote configuration of the dimmer module is available in enclosures with CEM3, CEM+, P-ACP, and E-ACP control modules; manual configuration is available directly at the dimmer module for legacy systems.

Barbizon Lighting Helps MASN Update Camden Yards Set Lighting


--> Just in time for opening day in Baltimore, Barbizon Lighting Company’s Capitol offices collaborated with Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) and Lighting Director J.R. Roberson of Dragon Lighting Inc. to overhaul the press box lighting system at Camden Yards. MASN broadcasts pre/post game talks with various hosts including Tom Davis and Rick Dempsey. 

The legacy lighting system consisting of a mix of older LED and HMI fixtures were removed and updated with 4 AAdynTech JAB Hurricane and 17 Creamsource Micro fixtures, all of which have an IP65 rating being in the exposed open-air booth. 

The fixtures are adjusted in real time from the control room using a standalone ETC Echo Touch system giving the MASN crew the ability to recall preset looks and use faders to fine tune each fixture to accommodate the varying levels of exterior light and cloud cover.
