More Dimming
less Compromise

The RED3 sets a new standard in affordable dimming, providing a user friendly graphical touch screen interface with LSC's reputation for reliability and durability.

Built entirely in Australia, the RED3 combines the graphical user interface and  2.8" touch screen, from the popular Redback wallmount system, with a heavy duty 3RU 19" rack mount chassis. The result is an ideal touring or installation dimmer for schools, houses of worship and other venues where there is a need for simple dimming of conventional lighting.

Although being very affordable, the RED3 is not built cheaply. The output triacs are the same 41A rated devices as our top of the range GenVI dimmers, and the chassis's of both units share many parts.

Each channel is protected by a 10A thermal magnetic breaker, and the user interface allows both Minimum (pre-heat) and Maximum (set this to 230v to increase your lamp life) levels for individual channels.
The easy to use riggers control allows any channel to be driven directly from the front panel of the dimmer, without needing a lighting console. The levels are saved for retrieval at power on, allowing the dimmer to be turned off and then return to the same levels when next powered up, making it ideal for small trade show stands and stand alone events.

As with all LSC products, the RED3 is covered by a comprehensive 24 months parts and labour warranty, that is transferable if the unit is sold, and also covers the RED3 in hire and production rental usage.
