Installation & Operation Guide
3. Power Requirements
S21™ Dimmer Strips (120V)
S21™ 2400 Watt dimmer systems are designed to operate on a 50 or 60 Hertz, 20 Amp, 120/208 VAC, three phase
"WYE" power service. These systems, however, will tolerate a wide variety of input voltages. For them to function
normally the Phase to Neutral voltage must be in the range of 90 to 140 VAC.
If a system is mis-wired to voltages greater than 180 VAC, the dimmers will shut down and flash the 'Over Voltage'
warning (See “LED Indicators” on page 9). Dimmers will not attempt to bring up loads when in over-voltage
shutdown. S21™ is designed to safely tolerate a 230 VAC line indefinitely, and a 280 VAC line for 15 minutes. Line
voltages greater than 280 VAC may destroy the over voltage protection components in the dimmers and the HeadEnd Processor.
eS21™ Dimmer Strips (230/240V)
eS21™ 2500 Watt dimmer systems are designed to operate on a 50 or 60 Hertz, 20 Amp, 230 / 240 VAC, three phase
"WYE" power service. These systems, however, will tolerate a wide variety of input voltages. For them to function
normally the Phase to Neutral voltage must be in the range of 200 to 260 VAC.
If a system is mis-wired to voltages greater than 230 VAC, the dimmers will shut down and flash the 'Over Voltage'
warning (See “LED Indicators” on page 9). Dimmers will not attempt to bring up loads when in over-voltage
shutdown. eS21 is designed to safely tolerate a 230 VAC line indefinitely, and a 280 VAC line for 15 minutes. Line
voltages greater than 280 VAC may destroy the over voltage protection components in the dimmers and the HeadEnd Processor.
4. Connecting Power
S21™ Dimmer Strips (120V)
Field wiring of the S21™ dimming system is straight forward. A total of 5 wires need to be brought to the unit: The
three "phase" wires (A, B, C), a Neutral, and a Ground. The "phase" wires carry up to 20 amps each, and the Neutral
carries the "unbalanced" current. S21™ dimming systems use a NEMA type L21-20 connector. Recommended cable
is 10/5 type SO. The wires feeding all dimmers and dimmer outlets are wired in the same order.
The following scheme is suggested:
Connector

Installation & Operation Guide
5. Connecting to the DMX512 Network
Basic DMX512 installation consists of Connecting S21™ or eS21™ dimmer strips together in "daisy-chain" fashion.
A cable runs from the control console to the "DMX IN" connector on the first S21™ or eS21™ dimmer strip.
Another cable runs from the "DMX OUT" connector on the first unit to the "DMX IN" connector on the second
dimmer strip. All units are connected together in this fashion. Do not exceed DMX512 cable length, number of
maximum receivers, or termination rules. For more information on DMX512, please refer to "Additional Resources
for DMX512" on page 1.

Note: * If there are no other DMX512 devices connected to the dimmer strip,
then the dimmer strip must be terminated (see "Terminating DMX512").
Terminating DMX512
If a unit has cable plugged into its "DMX OUT" connector which runs to another S21™ or eS21™ dimmer strip or
other DMX512 device, a DMX512 terminator is not required on the dimmer strip.
If a unit does not have a cable plugged into its "DMX OUT" connector, the dimmer strip must be terminated by a
five-pin DMX512 termination plug (Strand Lighting part number 71346 or equivalent).
DMX512 Termination Plug

DIMMER SYSTEM FUNDAMENTALS
1. S21™ & eS21 Dimmer Systems
The S21™ & eS21™ dimmers are multi-mode units that automatically analyzes its connected load and picks the
most appropriate dimming technique. Depending on the load, the dimmer will use either Reverse Phase Control
(RPC) or Forward Phase Control (FPC). Whenever possible, the dimmer will choose RPC because of the advantages
it offers in terms of reduced lamp noise and increased regulation accuracy. Both techniques control the average power
applied to the load by limiting current flow to only certain portions of each power line half cycle.
Forward Phase Control
Forward Phase Control is the technique used by all previous electronic dimmers, although earlier implementations
have been far less sophisticated than S21™ or eS21™ dimmers. This scheme only allows current to flow during the
latter portion of each half cycle. As the relative duration of the conducting portion is increased, so is the average
power applied to the load, and hence its brightness.
Reverse Phase Control
Volts
Reverse Phase Control, on the other hand, limits current flow to the early portions of each half cycle. The dimmer
monitors the power applied to the load in real time during the half cycle and adjusts its switch-off point as needed to
regulate the light output.
Time
Power Line
FPC (50% Conduction)
RPC (50% Conduction)
When switching-off the output in each half cycle, it is important to control the slope of the falling wave form so as to
minimize the acoustic noise made by the lamp filament, and the radio frequency noise radiated by the dimmer.
Previous dimming technologies accomplished this by placing a large coil of wire in series with the output of the
dimmer. The unique power stage in S21™ & eS21™ dimmers allows this function to be performed directly in the
dimmer. By stretching this fall time out to 400 or even 1000 µS, S21™ dimmers (400 or even 650 µS for eS21™
dimmers) achieve exceptionally quiet operation without high insertion losses, and without the line distortion caused
by inductors.
Fall Time
Note: Some manufacturers sometimes refer to "Forward Phase Control" as "Leading Edge" and "Reverse Phase
Control" as "Trailing Edge."
2. S21™ & eS21™ Dimmer Modules
Each S21™ and eS21™ Dimmer Module contains a dual dimmer assembly (2.4kW for S21™ dimmer strips and
2.5kW for eS21™ dimmer strips) with power shared between the two dimmers within the module. Each dual dimmer

Installation & Operation Guide
module includes two Focus/LED Indicator buttons, that functions as both focus adjustment control and status
indicator for its dimmer.
Dimmer A Focus Button
/ LED Indicator
Dimmer B Focus Button
/ LED Indicator
Focus Buttons
The Focus Buttons can be used to quickly set the output level or test the module as follows:
• If the module is Off, a tap on the button will take it to full on.
• If the module is On, a tap will turn it off.
• Whether On or Off, pressing and holding the button will ramp up the intensity level. Releasing the button will hold
the setting at an intermediate level.
Note: Fixtures turned on by the Focus Button will remain on until a control console sets a non-zero DMX512 level
for the module. The module’s level setting will be cancelled and it will now follow console control. If the module is
already set to a non-zero DMX512 level by the console, the button becomes a “Flash-to-Full” control, overriding the
level only while the button is pressed.
LED Indicators
The two LEDs associated with each dimmer report various operating conditions. The Red LED turns on for
approximately 4 seconds on power-up, and after that the indications are as follows:

3. Load Types
General
S21™ dimmers are designed to operate a wide variety of lighting loads of up to their rated capacity. The range of load
types which may be connected includes incandescent lamps, and a number of "well-behaved" inductive loads such as
low-voltage (step-down transformer) fixtures, fluorescent lamps, and most types of small motors used in special
effects equipment such as wind or fog machines.
WARNING! S21™ and eS21™ dimmers are not designed to drive large motor loads (3 Amps or greater), or motors
with start-up capacitors. Attempting to drive such loads may damage the dimming electronics or dimmer.
Low-Voltage Fixtures
When operating low-voltage type fixtures, observe the following precautions: If the fixture has a conventional
magnetic transformer, be sure it has internal fusing and is approved for dimming by its manufacturer. Load the
dimmer to only 80% of its capacity (i.e., 960VA for a 1.2KW dimmer) to compensate for losses in the transformer. If
the fixture has an "electronic transformer", make sure it is approved for dimming by its manufacturer.
Neon Fixtures
Neon fixtures and signs can be particularly difficult to dim as they tend to reflect back nearly all of the energy which
is applied to them. For best results with neon, a dimmer should be loaded to no more than 50% of its capacity (i.e.,
600VA for a 1.2KW dimmer), should be configured for Forward Phase Control operation, and should have an
incandescent load of 100 to 200 watts added to help absorb the reflected energy. Failure to take these precautions may
result in damage to the dimming electronics or dimmer.

HEAD-END PROCESSOR OPERATION AND PROGRAMMING
S21™ & eS21™ Dimming Systems
Installation & Operation Guide
Also, for best results, increase the neon transformer voltage 50% over the normal requirements for the selected length
and diameter of the tube. Use only Low Power Factor (without power factor compensation), current limiting, highvoltage transformers. Mount the transformer with the lamp it operates. This will increase lamp stability and dimming
range. Neon tubes must be pumped for a hard vacuum to minimize impurities in the lamp to insure flicker-free
operation at low light levels.
LED Line-Voltage Fixtures
S21™ and eS21™ dimmer strips offer a dedicated dimming option for line-voltage LED fixtures. LED fixtures that
require a locked reverse-phase control dimming curve is available through the LCD menu system. Refer to
"DIMMER OPTIONS" on page 12 on how to set a dimmer to the LED dimming mode.
Non-Dim Operation
When set for Non-dim operation, the S21™ and eS21™ dimmers bypass the dimming modes mentioned above, and
simply switches into full conduction. Normal overload protection is still active, but the dimmer does not attempt to
regulate its output voltage. Non-dim mode is intended to control small motors and fans such as those found in color
scrollers and scenic projectors.
WARNING! S21™ and eS21™ dimmers, in non-dim mode, are not designed to run automated luminaires, large
loads, or flash pots. Damage to the dimmer or attached equipment may occur.
4.
Dimmer Protection
S21™ and eS21™ dimmer can detect an overload in several ways:
1) By calculating the load size from the measured voltage and current. This protects the dimmer from missized loads, such as connecting more than its rated wattage to a single dual dimmer module.
2) By the hardware current limiter shutting down the dimmers output. This protects the dimmer from
catastrophic faults like short circuits.
The Over-sized load threshold is about 35% above the nominal dimmer capacity. This gives enough latitude for lamp
manufacturing tolerances and load shift with temperature, yet still protects the dimmer from gross loading errors.
Once an overload has been detected, the dimmer spends about 5 seconds monitoring the load before deciding to shut
down. If the hardware current limit caused the fault, the load is monitored at extremely low voltages. If the fault has
not cleared at the end of this time, the dimmer shuts down and reports the error. Depending on the cause, the Status
Monitor will show either "Over-sized Load", or "Overload".
The load must be reduced to the correct size and the level must be reset to zero before the dimmer will resume normal
operation.
Optional Load-Side Breakers (eS21™ dimmer strips only)
eS21™ dimmer strips are available with optional RCD breakers installed on the load side of the dimmer. Refer to
"eS21™ Dimmer Strip Components and Controls (230V/240V Models)" on page 5 for more information.
Thermal Protection
The portion of the S21™ and eS21™ dimmer output wave form which generates the most heat is the transition from
on to off (off to on for FPC). This portion is known as the transition time, and its duration directly affects the amount
of heat generated. The S21™ dimmer can control the duration of this portion of its output wave form and thus, to a
certain degree, its operating temperature.
If the dimmer is in its normal operating temperature range, it will use the longest transition time available (up to
1000µS for S21™ dimmers and up to 650µS for eS21™ dimmers). Should its operating temperature reach 85° C
(likely only if the ambient temperature is very high), it will automatically select a shorter transition time to reduce the
amount of heat generated. In many cases this will be sufficient to stabilize the temperature. Should the temperature
continue to rise, and reach 95° C, the dimmer will completely shut down to prevent an over temperature failure. After
an over temperature shut-down the temperature must drop to 50° C and the level must be reset to zero to resume
normal operation.
