Single Channel Sine Wave Dimmer - XSD-S3

Single Channel Sine Wave Dimmer - XSD-S3

The XSD-S3 is a portable, fully RDM enabled single channel sine wave dimmer. The Swisson sine wave dimming technology has many advantages over conventional phase control dimming. As the form of the AC sine wave is always preserved, it does not produce any filament sing or electrical disturbances which could affect audio or video equipment. The output voltage and current are electronically regulated, ensuring a stable and safe output to a wide range of different loads. This also enables the dimmer to compensate fluctuations in the mains supply and detect short circuits, all while operating with a very high efficiency.

The XSD-S3 can be controlled over DMX in an 8-bit or 16-bit mode, by 0-10V analog input, and manually with the encoder knob on the device. DMX and device specific settings, such as dimmer curves or output response time, can be changed over RDM as well as directly on the dimmer, thanks to its bright OLED display. The extensive but intuitive user interface can also display detailed sensor information and offers simplified troubleshooting by issuing notifications in case something goes wrong.

Its form factor and quiet operation make it ideal for any application, be it in theatres, studios or in architectural lighting.
