Installation – LMPS-Dimmer Controller and LMPS-Dimmer Extender
1
2
Secure the LMPS-Dimmer with #8
screws.
3
Connect the LMPS-350 power supply
Class 2 output to CH1 IN. Connect
the LED array (loop of modules or
D-LEDbar™) to CH1 OUT. No
polarity.
5
4
6
For large installation, add an LMPSDimmer Extender to expend the
channel capability. Install the LMPSDimmer Extender beside the LMPSDimmer Controller.
For PWM control, turn the pot
clockwise to the minimum position.
For PWM connections, respect
polarity. IMPORTANT – the PWM
remote control must drive at TTL
level (max. 5V).
For 0-10V control, turn the pot clockwise
to the minimum position. For 0-10V
connections, respect polarity. IMPORTANT:
the 0-10V remote control must source the
voltage to the LMPS-Dimmer. For 0-10V
sink operation, refer to technical bulletin
#11.
From the LMPS-Dimmer Controller
CTRL-OUT port, connect a standard
CAT5 cable to the CTRL-IN port of
the LMPS-Dimmer Extender.

7
Connect the LMPS-350 Class 2
output to CH2 IN. Connect the wires
of the LED array to CH2 OUT.
Repeat sequence for CH3-CH4-CH5.
If more than five channels are
required, cascade up to 15 LMPSDimmer Extender for a total of 61
channels. From the LMPS-Dimmer
Extender
#1
CTRL-OUT
port,
connect a standard CAT5 cable to
the CTRL-IN port of the LMPSDimmer Extender #2.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Some LED arrays on one power supply
are dim or completely off.
All LED arrays on one power supply are
dim or are flickering.
Some LED arrays or one or many LEDs
on a LED arrays do not light.
The splice connections are very hot.
Solution


Verify all connections. LED arrays must be wired in series.
Check AC input and/or check circuit breaker.




Verify that the power supply is not overloaded. Revise the loading
accordingly.
Verify that the correct model of power supply is used.
Verify that the correct distance factor was applied.
Verify that the correct extension wire is used.

Replace the affected LED arrays.

Verify that the splice connections are made with a splice connector
approved for the purpose and that the connections are secured.
For further information, please refer to technical bulletin #5 Contactless LED System Troubleshooting.
