Since 1900 Strand Lighting has long been a leader in dimming technology. Proven CD80 dimmers are available in 1, 6, and 12 dimmer portable and installation packs and in 48 and 96 dimmer touring and installation racks. Recently introduced is the new Century C-21 Rack. This rack will quickly become the new standard in dimming, building upon CD80 reliability, C-21 uses proven dimming technology with a number of advancements including web browser based rack configuration, increased support for external control, ACN ready processors and the availability of quad 20 amp dimmers and dual 20amp TrueSine™ dimmers. C21 is the only dimmer rack allowing for interchangeable dual Sinewave and SCR dimmers within a standard 96 way rack.

S21 Dimmer Strip

Strand Lighting is pleased to introduce the next generation of S21 Dimmer Strips; a perfect extension of our R21, C21, and A21 range of installed dimmer cabinets. Systems can be mixed and matched as needed to create a completely flexible lighting system to meet the needs of any installation. Our dimmer strips feature quiet convection cooled IGBT dimming for low lamp noise and reliable operation. IGBT dimmers are an Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor power device that works in tandem with a dedicated microprocessor to control almost any type of lighting load required. IGBT dimmers are completely silicon-based and operate silently without the use of chokes, and do not produce any mechanical buzz or hum associated with Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) dimmers. They are smaller, lighter, and generate fewer neutral harmonics than SCR dimmers.

Ideal for smaller systems, S21 Dimmer Strips may be used in schools, churches or any facility that does not have space for conventional dimmer racks. Easy to install and use, S21 Dimmer Strips can be fed from standard breaker panels.

R21 Powered Raceway

R21 Powered Raceway from Strand Lighting is a perfect extension of our C21 and A21 range of installed dimmer cabinets. Systems can be mixed and matched as needed to create a completely flexible lighting system to meet the needs of any installation. Our powered raceway features quiet convection cooled IGBT dimming for low lamp noise and reliable operation. 

Strand Lighting's powerful ShowNet Ethernet network allows easy integration of your entire lighting system with consoles, houselight systems and portable and fixed dimming racks all connecting seamlessly over a network. The heart of the system is our powerful Raceway processor may be mounted locally on the raceway or remotely in an easy to access auxiliary rack. One processor can control up to 96 dimmers over multiple raceways simplifying set up and operation. Our Guardian software allows remote configuration and status monitoring over our network as well.

Each raceway can have dimmed circuits for conventional luminaires and constant power for automated lighting systems. A wide range of hangers are available for pipe mount and wall mount applications to meet the needs of any installation.

This new rack provides the most sophisticated flexible dimming system available allowing a mix and match of single, dual, quad and TrueWine dimmers. All dual 20 amp SCR, contactor modules and sinewave dimmers are interchangeable.

Rack setup and optional status reporting can be accesed through any standard PC web browser. Racks come Shownet compatable and ACN ready.

In addition Strand Lightings powerful Vision.net Architectural networks are fully supported at no additional cost.

C-21 Racks should be part of a comprehensive electrical installation. Please call for more information. C21 PDF Cutsheet

If you already own an existing Strand Lighting CD80 installation rack, you can now upgrade your rack with a C21 retrofit kit. The upgrade includes a new fan set, a one year warranty on the existing rack and access to all of the new networking and control features of C21 New Century Dimming. Why spend money on replacing dimmers when its only the control that needs upgrading?

 

A21 Dimming System

A21 dimming systems are designed to be flexible and can be tailored to the varying needs of architectural or entertainment applications. Their modular design allows systems to be configured easily to meet the needs of a wide range of projects. Please see our section on Architectural Controls for more system design options

A21 Dimmer Cabinets:
Each cabinet is a pre-wired enclosure that contains the power modules, a control processor module, internal wiring and load, supply and control terminations. Three cabinet sizes are available for 3, 6 or 9 power modules. A main breaker option is available for 6 and 9 module cabinets. Systems may be ordered for 120 or 277 volt applications.

A21 Power Modules:
Dual and quad power modules are available in a variety of ratings for incandescent/inductive (low voltage, neon and cold cathode), fluorescent and non-dim loads. Fluorescent modules are available for two and three wire ballasts to meet the needs of a wide range of projects.

A21 features standard SCR and quiet IGBT dimmer modules that are simple to install and configure. Local controls and bypass are supplied with all dimmer modules for set up and testing during installation. Power modules can be combined within a cabinet to match differing load sizes and types.

A-21 cabinets should be part of a comprehensive electrical installation. Please call for more information. A21 PDF Cutsheet
