Powerlight 612D is a 6-channel digital dimmer (12A), mounted in a sturdy metal 2U rack container. All the controls and settings are accessible by means of the buttons on the front panel and can be monitored on the built-in display. The on-board microcomputer controls a comprehensive series of functions (soft patch, channel mode, channel level, pre-heat, equalization curves, etc.). Powerlight 612D was designed paying great attention to reliability and adopts avant-garde technical solutions, including internal self-diagnosis, forced ventilation with air flow proportional to the temperature and a comprehensive series of protections: overheating, short-circuit, excessive voltage, incorrect connection. Powerlight 612D can also be used without an external controller: in fact, it's possible to program 8 different chases with a maximum of 32 steps each. On-board software can be upgraded via RS-232. Powerlight 612D is available with a choice of 3 different connector panels: ILME 16, Cabur and Socapex.
