Act 6 (1984 - 1994)
6 channel dimmer rack (6 x 10A dimmer)
1984 - 5A, 15A, Schuko versions
The chassis design of Act 6 will permit a wide range of socket types to be used for individual market areas. All types incorporate specially chosen panel fuses which will survive the usual form of abuse that this type of dimmer inevitably suffers - namely the removal and replacement of fuses on load - and LED indication of fuse continuity and the status of the power supply.
All the dimmer electronics are mounted on a single pcb which includes the power intake terminals, and connections to the triacs, mounted on the extruded aluminium heatsink case, and the connection to the control panel pcb. Each dimmer circuit is rated at a full 10 Amps, and the total continuous load is 45 Amps. If the pack is overloaded for any appreciable time, an internal thermal safety trip will switch off power, and will reset when the temperature reduces to within its normal operating range.
The circuit design of Act 6 incorporates a low voltage power supply to supply a Tempus desk which will plug directly into the local control panel of Act 6 when a full manual remote control is required.
