Distributed Dimming

  • Electronic Silent dimming

    Lighting professionals around the globe have relied on ETC's dimming and power-control expertise for years. Now you can have noiseless, ETC-quality power control right at the luminaire. The convection-cooled ES1™ dimmer attaches to any tungsten luminaire up to 1500W and set at 230V output or 750W at 115V output for on-board distributed power control. It comes equipped with 1.5m power input and output cables to be permanently wired to a fixture or to an appropriate DC power connector.  

  • Power control that won't drown out the applause

    During a performance, the audience should hear the talent on stage, not the hum of the luminaires. That's why the ES1 was designed with ETC's advanced Electronic Silent (ES) power-control technology for completely noise-free operation. Working without fans or filament buzz, the dimmer is silent, making it the perfect power-control solution for acoustically sensitive venues. You can outfit your entire rig with ES1 dimmers without interrupting the sound on stage.  

    Meet today's changing power-control requirements

    'Going green' doesn't have to mean abandoning the quality of light. Attaching an ES1 dimmer to your luminaires brings your rig the brightness and quality of light that only tungsten can provide, while working seamlessly alongside your LED fixtures. Run both luminaire types at the same time by sending simple switched power to all of your lighting positions. Control ES1 dimmers, LEDs and moving lights with your existing data network. The ES1 features on-board controls for local operation and RDM for remote setup. It also offers the ability to set DMX addresses, change curves and receive status information. With the ES1 dimmer, your venue is more flexible, with an infrastructure that can adapt to new requirements and layouts.
