BakPak IGBT Intelli gent Dimmer
Entertainment Technology offers yet another breakthrough in dimming technology for stage lighting.
The Bak Pak IGBT Intelligent Dimmer is the perfect
complementary device for existing stage lights that require more sophisticated
The IPSBP series of Intelligent IGBT dimming modules quickly brings dimming
capability directly to conventional lighting instruments. Because the Bak Pak
IGBT dimmer is an individual dimmer, you can use it exactly where you need a
“single” dimmer, without the need for additional dimmer rack space. Bak Pak
IGBT dimmers are quick to mount, wire, and run.
Mounting: 4 different mounting options to suit your installation - Yoke mount, CClamp (by others), Pipe mount, or Wall mount.
Connect the Bak Pak IGBT dimmer to the nearest power feed. Connect the power output of the Bak Pak to the light fixture, connect
your DMX512 cables, set the address, and it’s done.
Use the incorporated local “focus button” for quick setup and testing. Raise / lower the lighting level for focusing purposes.
Mounting Options (not to scale)
Bak Pak modules are available in 750 or 1200 operating wattages. Bak Pak
IGBT dimmers are fed from a standard power source, thereby eliminating dimmer racks, packs, or remotely located dimmers.

(shown to approximate scale)
Bak Pak dimmers utilize state-of-the-art Insulated
Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) technology, which provides significant performance enhancements over
conventional dimming equipment. IPS dimmers are
completely solid-state which enable them to operate
silently (without mechanical noise) at 800uS in forward or reverse phase control which dramatically
minimizes lamp, ballast, or transformer noise in the
space. IPS dimmers significantly reduce neutral harmonics and may be configured to operate in LOW
H A R M mode, making them the lowest harmonic
dimmer available. Since IGBT technology does not
use filters or chokes, IPS dimmers are more efficient,
with a maximum 2.5 volt drop at full operating load,
are lightweight, and produce less heat than conventional dimmers.
Yoke Mount
Through its side-accessible DIP switches, users can select - dim/non-dim, 115/
120 volts AC operation, Forward/Reverse Phase Control, and 800/450 microsecond rise time - allowing flexibility for many applications and needs.
IPS dimmers offer an extended feature set that is unsurpassed in today’s conventional dimming equipment. Every IPS dimmer has an on-board intelligent microprocessor, which adjusts and maintains proper voltage and current in response
to changes detected in the load and electrical service. The microprocessor automatically suppresses surges, protects against dead shorts, and extends lamp
Wall Mount
By Others
With standard features that surpass every other dimmer, the Intelligent Power
System Bak Pak joins the family of most advanced dimmers available.
