As part of a complete Crestron lighting system, the CLX-1DIM4 lighting control module provides 4 channels of dimming for incandescent, magnetic low-voltage, neon/cold cathode, and dimmable 2-wire fluorescent loads. Each channel is rated for 1920 Watts, with a total module rating of 1920 Watts. Air-gap relays are provided on every channel output allowing individual circuits to be serviced without disabling the entire module. CLX-Series dimmers are rigorously built using 40 Amp triacs and oversized heat sinks for ultimate reliability. Split-bobbin transformers and ground referenced electronics deliver superior performance. Lamp flicker is minimized through Crestron's innovative zero-crossing detection technique backed by proprietary firmware. Low-maintenance convection cooling assures quiet and trouble-free operation.
An override feature allows each channel to be adjusted to a preset state during setup. In the event that Cresnet communications should be disrupted for any reason, a simple contact closure can be used to activate the override presets on a global or semi-global basis.
The CLX-1DIM4 occupies a single module space in any CAEN or CAEN-MLO automation enclosure. Termination of high-voltage wiring to the module is facilitated by a CLT-1DIM4 terminal block, sold separately to enable termination of the wiring any time prior to installing the module. CLX modules are controlled by the DIN-AP3 and other 3-Series control systems via the Cresnet network. A 5-wire link provides bussing of the Cresnet and override signals between modules within an enclosure (interconnect jumpers included).
