For installations where cost is a major consideration, providing a dimmer channel for each outlet is unlikely to be a viable option. The REDBACK Patch Bay offers an ideal solution.

Each of the outlets in the rig is hardwired back to a central patch bay that provides a flying-lead system located next to the dimmers. Depending on the show, the lights required can be chosen from the patch bay and plugged into the dimmer offering extra flexibility.

The REDBACK Patch Bay has been designed to complement the REDBACK Wallmount series of installation dimmers/relays. Reflecting the same styling methods, the result is a highly compact series of patch bays offering the user unhindered access and ease of use.

The system is modular and based on modules of 12-circuits each with a choice of Australian 'piggy-back' plugs or Wieland GST18 connectors for countries where the Australian output is not suitable.

The optional digital Test Module caps off the product group by adding safe and reliable load-testing and source-testing with overload indicators and circuit protection. There is also an outlet for an LED gooseneck light ensuring the user always has adequate light.

Redback Patch Bay 36 circuit unit

Description

The REDBACK Patch Bay starts with a frame. Four frame sizes are offered, allowing for systems up to 36, 72, 144 or 240 circuits. Each patch module provides 12 circuits each individually terminated in a 1RU connector strip. The unique mechanical design of the patch modules allows them to be clipped in an angled-down position exposing the terminals and access to the internal cables. This makes wiring the modules easy as it is not necessary to support the module whilst terminating the cables.

A frame size larger than initially required can be installed to allow for future expansion. The required number of 12-circuit patch modules are fitted with the empty locations filled with blank panels.

An optional 1RU Test Module is available and permits testing of lamp circuits and dimmer circuits. A simple load indicator shows the level of load connected to alleviate possible overloading of the dimmer circuit. It is also useful to confirm that the connected lamps are operating.

The frame is a similar design and construction to the REDBACK Wallmount and the ability to invert the REDBACK Wallmount units means that for ease-of-use in larger systems, the dimmers can be located either side of a REDBACK Patch Bay.

The optional cable management clips are purchased as pairs and help to organise unused cables to aid access to the required patch leads.

Already got a rack cabinet? No problem, the REDBACK patch modules are pre-punched so they can be fitted into a standard 19" rack.
