ETC Paradigm DRd Power Control
ETC’s Unison DRd series enclosures are the workhorses behind the scenes, supporting a networkable Unison Paradigm processor and a variety of dimming, switching and other modules. These dimming enclosures are trusted for their reliability and versatility. Designed with long-term, round-the-clock operation in mind, DRd’s dimming, control and station-power components are modular, making service and support easier than ever.
When it comes to fluorescent dimming, Unison DRd can handle it all: two- and three-wire dimming ballasts with standard modules, DALI ballasts with the DALI option board, and 0-10V ballasts with the FLO option board. And DRd doesn’t stop at fluorescent control; there is reverse-phase dimming for electronic low-voltage transformers and a full range of load options, including LED.
When you select Unison Paradigm Control in the DRd enclosure, you get the best of two worlds: unparalleled lighting control and full-featured dimming. The enclosure supports a Paradigm Architectural Control Processor (ACP), and an optional Paradigm Station Power Module for use with Heritage and Paradigm stations. When used with the Paradigm ACP, the enclosure unlocks support for the NetConnect Ethernet networking, featuring ETC’s Net3, powered by ACN, along with DMX512A, RS-232 serial-, and contact-closure interfaces.
Building on the best features of the original, ETC has redesigned the Unison dimming enclosure by adding substantial capabilities to maximize its already considerable power handling. The new Unison DRd has more power density than other dimming systems, while packing even more features into the enclosure.
