Access
Cover is removed for installation and maintenance, providing complete open access to the
projector.
Projector Mount
Projector is held securely in place with two universal stainless steel projector clamps.
Security
Rings in the cover latches allow for the inclusion of padlocks for security in public areas.
Cooling/Heating
Cooling by a single AC axial fan located on the rear panel. Incoming air is filtered using a
removable, washable air filter in the rear air intake cowl. Heater is a 500W line voltage strip
heater (DEC3 models only).
Projector Protection
Projector power supply passes through a 2-pole mechanical relay (DEC3 models only), which
will open in the event of a serious over-temperature event, to protect the projector from heat
damage. Threshold levels are user-adjustable.
Digital Enclosure Control
DEC3.2TM – that’s Digital Enclosure Control, 3rd
Generation – takes enclosure control to the next level.
DEC3.2 is a an entirely new controller, featuring highreliability surface-mount electronics, extreme heavy-duty
switching components, and a handy waterproof user
control panel on the outside of the enclosure. DEC3 offers communication via DMX and RDM, or may be used in
its entirely automatic standalone operating mode. DEC3
monitors internal temperature, humidity and lamp current at all times, and uses this information to control its
lamp relay, fans and heaters, and report back over RDM if
desired.
DEC works right out of the box – if you don’t want to play
with its default settings, you don’t need to. DEC’s mission
is to maintain temperature and humidity inside the enclosure within the ‘Goldilocks’ band – never to hot, never
too cold, and never, never, allowing deadly condensation
DEC3’s user interface uses
CapSenseTM technology for a
watertight control panel that’s
easy to use and easy to read.
LED indicators show the status
of all major functions, and the
display shows DMX address,
temperature, humidity and
any error messages you need
to know about.
Use the simple menus to
optimize temperature and
humidity settings, set DMX
address, view and reset lamp
hour counter, and more.

particularly in polluted areas or saline environments,
where it brings not only rust and short-circuits, but also a

steady buildup of mineral and salt deposits. Incidentally,
When the lamp is off, DEC goes to work. When conditions
are within normal bounds, DEC pulses the heater at a low
level to prevent condensation, and gently changes the
enclosure air every 30 seconds or so. We call this ‘pulse
mode’, and it is the key to preventing damaging condensation inside your equipment.
this is very hard to control with air-conditioning type systems, which is why we don’t use them.
DEC’s function depends on whether the projector lamp is
on or off:
If the temperature rises above the top
set limit, DEC runs the fans to cool it
down. In cold conditions, DEC will run
the heater as required to maintain the
bottom set temperature.
Lamp ON
When the projector is running, the heat
from the lamp takes care of humidity,
and DEC runs the enclosure’s fan to
change its air every few seconds – ensuring minimal temperature rise above
And while doing all of this, DEC can tell
you what’s happening over your RDM network – a real
