The ART2000 system provides a complete solution to Dimming and Moving Light Power distribution. You no longer need to have separate mains distribution making set up times faster and reducing the number of individual components needed to put a show together. The ART2000 controls up to 48 individual channels. Depending on the frame either two or four modules of max 12 channels can be plugged in. The following module types are currently available: • 12 channel 16A continuously rated dimming module with 240uS rise time • 6 channel 32A continuously rated dimming module with 240uS rise time • 12 channel 16amp distribution module for powering moving lights or other equipment • 12 channel 16A Relay module, to switch on/off mains under DMX control. Modules of the same channel count can be freely interchanged, and the rack can be easily configured ‘per job’ as required. Up to 20 Multicore output connectors ensure that cabling will be as simple and reliable as possible. Each channel of each multicore output connector can be patched to any dimmer output using the top hot-patch. The hotpatch has a lamp test indicator making faults easy to find when a single dimmer channel powers more than one light fixture. The ‘Load Check’ indicators for each dimmer module or relay module channel give a sure indication that a load is present and the test faders on each dimmer channel or relay channel allow you to quickly check what’s connected without having the use of a console. The design incorporates full monitoring and status feedback via the backlit LCD display. For simple events you can operate without a console by setting up a dimmer state on the test faders, or you can record 12 internal memories for replaying a simple show. Other features include full DMX patch and merge (2 DMX lines), dimmer curve and output limit selection per channel, power OK indicators, optional volt and amp metering and optional RCD protection.
