Electrical

Installation.

Operating voltage.

Power supply connections.

The electrical supply connection should always be made by a specialist.

ALWAYS have a mains switch and the appropriate circuit breaker (depending on the maximum power

consumption of the dimmer).

The operating voltage for DDE Actor dimmer is the following:

Three phase Delta : 230 V ~ 3 / PE / 50 Hz

Three phase Star : 400 / 230 V ~ 3 / N / PE / 50 Hz

Single phase : 230 V ~ / N / PE / 50 Hz

The DDE Actor dimmer is supplied with a 6-pin plus ground connector.

The figure on the left presents the 6 pin connector (rear-side view of dimmerpack) and the connections of each pin.

The installer can supply the dimmerpack in the following three ways.

1) Three phase delta power supply.

Power supply : 230V~ 3 + PE (Protective Earth) / 50Hz.

This way of supply doesn`t demand connection to the Neutral. Instead of the Neutral, each phase uses as a Neutral, another phase. For phase 1 the Neutral is phase 2, for phase 2 the Neutral is phase 3 and for phase 3 the neutral is phase 1.

The connection should be effected as shown in the left drawing.

The appropriate power supply cable should be of 7 wires, each wire

6mm². Three wires are used to connect the “phase”, three wires to connect the “neutral” and one wire to connect the “ground”.

2) Three phase star power supply.

Power supply : 400 / 230V~ 3 + Neutral + PE (Protective Earth) / 50Hz.

The connection should be effected as shown in the left drawing.

The appropriate power supply cable should be of 7 wires, each wire

6mm². Three wires are used to connect the “phase”, three wires to connect the “neutral” and one wire to connect the “ground”.

2) Single phase power supply.

Power supply : 230V~ + Neutral + PE (Protective Earth) / 50Hz.

The connection should be effected as shown in the drawing.

The appropriate power supply cable should be of 7 wires, each wire

Distribution of the three phase power supply.

A dimmer has maximum power consumption when all channels are driven under maximum load.

Μax. power consumption : 22.101 W (7.367W / phase) (

32 A / phase)

Τhe DDE Actor is equipped with 6 double output schuko sockets (one for each channel) where the loads are connected.

The load connection should always be made by a specialist.

Attention: Each channel load should be connected to the dimmer separately. More particularly, the phase, the neutral and the ground of each channel load should be connected to the dimmer’s socket. Do not use common neutral wire that ends to the distribution board.

The DDE Actor has 16A 2 pole MCB on every output channel to protect the channels from short circuit or overload.

Τhe load types that can be connected to the DDE Actor dimmer are:

• Resistive and inductive loads.

• Iron core transformers to supply low voltage lamps (e.g.halogen).

The figure on the left presents the twin schuco socket.

(Rear-side view of dimmerpack).

The distribution of the three phase power supply in the DDE Actor dimmer is as follows:

Phase 1: channels 1 and 2.

Phase 2: channels 3 and 4

Phase 3: channels 5 and 6.

Dimming Control

Introduction

Αnalogue Control.

Digital Control.

On-board Control Panel.

Automatic power control.

This chapter presents the different ways of controlling the dimmer. These include the analogue input signal of 0-10V for each channel, the serial digital control signal DMX-512, the use of the build-in sliders with master control placed at the front side of the dimmer and the use of the menu.

The channel level can be controlled in all the above ways at the same time depending on the dimmer. The final channel output level is the highest control level deriving either from the analogue input, the digital input or the build-in slider.

At the front side of the DDE Actor dimmer there is a 7pin male plug XLR which is used to control the dimmer by an analogue control desk

(0/+10V).

The scheme on the left shows the 7pin male plug XLR connector. The electrical connections is as follows:

Pin 1: Analogue Input 1

Pin 2:

Pin 3:

Pin 4:

Pin 5:

Pin 6:

Pin 7:

Analogue Input 2

Analogue Input 3

Analogue Input 4

Analogue Input 5

Analogue Input 6

0 V (Common)

For digital control, the DDE Actor dimmer uses the DMX-512 protocol

(1990). This DMX-512 control signal is supplied to the dimmer from a male 5-pole XLR plug and goes out from a female socket of similar type to supply the next unit. Both socket and plug are placed at the front side of the dimmer.

The output DMX-512 signal is amplified by an integrated amplifier

(repeater) in the DDE Actor dimmer, allowing the user to connect an endless number of dimmers to the same control signal, without signal loss.

The schemes on the left site the shows the pin discription of the 5-pole male and female XLR input plug with pin numbering. The electrical connections of these plugs are listed below:

5-pin XLR: Pin 1

Pin 2

Pin 3

Pin 4, 5

: Common (0V)

: Negative signal (data -)

: Positive signal (data +)

: Not used

For DMX-512 start address selection please refer to a following chapter.

The dimmer control can also be realized from the on-board control panel.

This panel consists of 6 channel sliders and 1 master slider for the dimmer stand-alone operation. By using this panel, there is no need for an external control desk.

The DDE Actor dimmer apart from the cooling fan that the power circuits they have, they also have an automatic power control system which is activated whenever the dimmer temperature reaches high levels.

Factory Chasers.

Indication of Factory

Chasers.

Indication of Factory Chaser 1 activation.

Indication of selecting another speed rate from the current which is 08.

Indication of selecting another dimmer (lighting) level from the current which is FULL.

Indication of selecting another dimmer (lighting) level from the current which is 75%.

In this case, the dimmer automatically reduces the output power (by reducing the channel light outputs), maintaining by this way the temperature of the power circuits in safe levels.

When the automatic power control is activated the display starts flashing showing the temperature of the power circuits.

The DDE Actor dimmer has 12 chasers pre-programmed by the manufacturer. These are called Factory Chasers. The user can activate or deactivate a chaser by pushing a button and can set the speed rate and the lighting level (dimmer) using the push buttons mounted on the front panel of the dimmer.

To activate a chaser:

• Press the ‘‘CHASER’’ button.

The display indicates that the chaser 1 is activated, as shown in the left picture. The “F.C.” means Factory Chaser and the number “01” is the number of the activated chaser.

(Note: The chaser that is activated is not necessarily the chaser 1. This depends on which chaser was operating last).

To activate another chaser:

• Press the buttons ‘‘-’’ or ‘‘+’’.

Each time you press the “-“ or “+” buttons you select the previous or the next chaser accordingly from the one that was operating last. The display always indicates the chaser that you select and operate each time.

To set another rate of speed to a chaser:

• Press the ‘‘MENU’’ button.

The display shows the indication of the left picture. The letter “r” in the middle indicates the rate of speed, while the two digits on the right of the letter “r” indicate the current value of the speed rate of the chaser.

(Note: The value of the speed rate is not necessarily 8. This depends on the value of the speed rate that the lastly operated chaser had).

• Press the button ‘‘-’’ or ‘‘+’’ to set another speed rate.

The values of the speed rate range from 1 (slow) to 16 (fast).

To set another lighting level (dimmer) to a chaser:

• Press the ‘‘MENU’’ button.

The display shows the picture on the left. The letter “d’’ in the middle indicates the dimmer (lighting) level, while the letters ‘‘FL’’ on the right indicate that the lighting level is at FULL.

(Note: Instead of the indication “FL” the display might show a two digit number which is the lighting level expressed as a percentage. This depends on the lighting level that the lastly operated chaser had).

• Press the button ‘‘-’’ or ‘‘+’’ to select another dimmer (lighting) level.

To deactivate a chaser:

• Press the ‘‘CHASER’’ button.

Τhe chaser stops operating and the display shows the indication of the

DMX-512 start address.

8

Useful Notes.

While the chaser is in operation you can press the ‘‘MENU’’ button as many times as necessary in order to move to the menu you want and change any settings you like.

When a chaser is deactivated then the chaser number, the value of the speed rate and the dimmer (lighting) level of this chaser are stored in the dimmer, so that when this chaser is reactivated it has the same speed rate and dimmer (lighting) level.

This information remains in the dimmer even in case that the power supply is cut off.

Τhe chaser can operate in parallel with the digital input DMX-512, the analogue input and also with the build-in control panel.

Please note that when the chaser is in operation you cannot make any other adjustments. For example, you cannot change the DMX-512 start address or set a Preheat Level to a channel etc.

When the power supply of the dimmer is cut off and the chaser is in operation, then when the dimmer turns on again the chaser will be automatically activated.

Address‘‘001’’.

This chapter presents the DDE Actor dimmer programming and adjustments that you can make according to your needs.

The dimmer adjustments you can make are the following:

• Programming of DMX-512 Start Address.

• Programming of waveforms (Law) for each dimmer channel.

• Programming of Preheat Level for each dimmer channel.

• Programming of Soft Start for each channel.

• Programming of dimmer response in case of DMX-512 signal loss.

The dimmer adjustments are stored in the dimmer and do not change unless you decide to make any further changes.

During the programming, the dimmer operates normally. In other words, any adjustments you make in the digital DMX-512 input, the analogue input or the control panel are shown in the dimmer outputs.

You should note that this programming is not necessary for the dimmer operation. The dimmer is provided to you with pre-programmed settings and is ready to use.

The default settings of these adjustments are presented in the following chapters.

Attention: No programming can take place if the chaser is activated. In order to do any programming, you

should first deactivate the chaser.

The indication of DMX-512 signal condition is the permanent display indication when the dimmer is not being programmed and the chaser is deactivated.

There are two possible signal conditions:

1. Indication of correct DMX-512 signal condition, which is similar to the picture on the left. The letter ‘‘d’’ means dmx and the digits “001” refer to the start address.

2. Indication of incorrect or missing DMX-512 signal condition, which is similar to the picture on the left. The letter ‘‘d’’ means dmx and the letters”FLd” mean that the DMX signal failed or is incorrect.

The DDE Actor can handle resistive and inductive loads, including incandescent lamps and iron core transformers for low voltage lamps.
How do I activate and control the factory chasers on the DDE Actor?
To activate a chaser, press the 'CHASER' button. Use the '+' and '-' buttons to cycle through the 12 available chasers. You can adjust the speed rate and dimmer level of each chaser using the 'MENU' and '+' or '-' buttons.
Can I program the DMX-512 start address of the DDE Actor?
Yes, you can change the DMX start address from the initial setting of 001. Refer to the document for instructions on how to do so.
What is the difference between 'Hold' and 'Blackout' dimmer response?
The 'Hold' option keeps the last DMX-512 data received when the serial DMX connection fails. The 'Blackout' option clears the last DMX-512 data, effectively turning the dimmer off. You can program the desired response using the 'MENU' button.
