As part of a complete Crestron lighting system, the CLXI-2DIM8 lighting control module provides 8 channels of dimming for 230V incandescent, magnetic low-voltage, neon/cold cathode, and dimmable 2-wire fluorescent loads. The CLXI-2DIM8 is actually composed of two independent 4 channel dimmers in a single module. Each channel is rated for 2300 Watts, with a total module rating of 5980 Watts when fed from two separate 16 Amp feeds. Air-gap relays are provided on every channel output allowing individual circuits to be serviced without disabling the entire module.
CLXI-Series dimmers are rigorously built using 40 Amp triacs and oversized heat sinks for ultimate reliability. Split-bobbin transformers and ground referenced electronics deliver superior performance. Lamp flicker is minimized through Crestron's innovative zero-crossing detection technique backed by proprietary firmware. Low-maintenance convection cooling assures quiet and trouble-free operation.
An override feature allows each channel to be adjusted to a preset state during setup. In the event that Cresnet communications should be disrupted for any reason, a simple contact closure can be used to activate the override presets on a global or semi-global basis.
The CLXI-2DIM8 occupies a single module space in any CAEN or CAENIB automation enclosure. Termination of high-voltage wiring to the module is facilitated by a CLTI-2DIM8 terminal block, sold separately to enable termination of the wiring anytime prior to installing the module. CLXI modules are controlled by the PAC2 and PAC2M professional automation control systems via the Cresnet network. A 5-wire link provides bussing of the Cresnet and override signals between modules within an enclosure (interconnect jumpers included).
