can be matched as required.
Climate Control
Patented Digital Enclosure Control (DEC3) System, microprocessor controller and display controls temperature, humidity and dewpoint. DEC3 system runs 24/7 for roundthe-clock protection.
Factory default settings may be used without any adjustment, or user may modify temperature and humidity threshold settings to optimize performance in different climate
types and with different equipment.
All values and status information are available for remote monitoring over RDM (for
more information, please refer to the Hurricane 2 User Manual, available at
Filtered fresh air cooled using two powerful AC fans. Washable air inlet filter may be
simply removed for periodic cleaning.
Proportionally controlled 500 watt heater dries intake air and maintains internal temperature within bounds in cold climates. Heaters pulse when fixture lamp is detected to
be off, to maintain internal temperatures above dewpoint and prevent condensation.
Fixture over-temperature double pole relay isolates luminaire if temperature exceeds
safe operating limit. This relay may also be controlled over DMX, providing a simple
‘hard reset’ in the event of fixture malfunction.
Control Wiring
DMX IN terminal on main circuit board. Two DMX THRU terminals - one for internal fixture, and one to next enclosure. Cable by others.
Electrical Connections
Connections landed through conduit entry port provided on enclosure base.

Digital Enclosure Control?
DEC3TM – that’s Digital Enclosure Control, 3rd Generation
– takes enclosure control to the next level. DEC3 is a an
entirely new controller, featuring high-reliability surfacemount 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.
DEC3 works right out of the box – if you don’t want to
play with its default settings, you don’t need to. DEC3’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 to form. Condensation is fatal to electronic
