Analog Address Overview
The Analog Address system is a lighting control system that allows you to control
architectural lighting from wall-mounted slider stations. The system can control up to
eight analog channels wired to DMX512 dimmers. Up to eight slider stations may be
installed. The system also includes a processor unit from which you can assign dimmers
to channels and enter other system settings.
In addition to the eight analog channels, the system also includes a panic channel and a
