BBS introduces remote dimmer for Area 48

Mar 2, 2016

BBS Lighting has introduced a new remote dimmer for its Area 48 Soft LED light system. The new unit fits in the user’s hand and allows single or multi-fixture 16-bit dimming of Area 48 Soft fixtures smoothly from 100% to blackout, as well as On/Off.

Overriding the settings of the Area 48’s on-fixture controls, the compact Area 48 remote dimmer uses a rotary knob with numerical settings, to allow lighting technicians to easily and precisely dial-in any desired light intensity. A single Remote Dimmer can control, in unison, a virtually unlimited number of Area 48 Softs that are connected via DMX 5-pin cabling. With multiple Area 48s, the Remote controls a master fixture (with current BBSNet software) that overrides the on-fixture software settings of all the Area 48’s in the chain.

The remote dimmer works at any color temperature. Area 48 Soft Remote Phosphor LED lights offer accurate colour rendering (98 TLCI) soft output, comparable to a 1200-Watt traditional soft light. Interchangeable phosphor panels offer quick change from Daylight to Tungsten, to Chroma-Green or Chroma Blue.
