GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The PP405-DMX is a 4-channel DMX-512 compatible dimmer pack. It is
equivalent to four solid-state relays (SSR's) and a DMX512 Logic assembled on a
single circuit board. Power is fed to the PP405-DMX from FOUR 5 Amps. DC
Voltage Power Supplies . Each solid state relay is rated for a maximum output
current of 5 amperes. The PP405-DMX has an open frame U shaped enclosure .
The logic signals are optically-isolated from all line voltage elements. An external
step-down The DMX-512 control cable is hardwired to the PP405-DMX. Several
Dimmer packs may be daisy-chained together. Each PP405-DMX may be easily
set to a unique address with 2 hexadecimal selectors and will occupy the next four
DMX control channels beginning with the one following the address selected.
When two or more units are set to the same address, their respective outputs work
in unison, increasing the amount of load that can be controlled by a single DMX
channel. Each of the PP405-DMX outputs may be independently configured not
to dim. In such case, a DMX input value greater than 3 switches its respective
output to 100%, else the output remains at 0%.
DIMMING/SWITCHING - (See Page 10 for more information)
A PP405-DMX may control a combination of dimmed and switched loads. Each of
the PP405-DMX’s outputs may be independently configured not to dim. This is
achieved using a HARDWARE lock ( Jumper )to ensure circuits do not dim. Please
see Page 7 for location of these jumpers.

User's Manual - Page 6
DMX Address Setting
Up to 128 PP405-DMX dimmer packs may be installed per system and their DMX input daisy-chained using
standard DMX-512 cables. Different addresses ranging from 1 to 509 may be selected for each dimmer, depending
on which DMX channel(s) will be used to control it. Each dimmer pack uses four consecutive DMX bytes from the
input stream beginning at the address selected using rotary selectors S1, S2 and address expansion jumper S3.
(See Figure 3 on page 2 for selectors location).
The PP405-DMX is shipped from the factory with jumper S3 installed allowing a DMX address range between 1 and
256 to be selected by S1 & S2 (See Table 4). For higher addresses ( 257-509) jumper S3 must be removed (See
Table 5).
Non-Dim Output Setting
Any or all of the PP405-DMX outputs may be configured for non-dim (switch only) operation. This prevents
inadvertent dimming, or damage, of loads that cannot be dimmed, such as contactors, mechanical relays, motors,
non-dim fluorescent, etc...
Since this procedure involves adding external wire jumpers to the INT4 board, it is preferable to have it performed by
the factory, at time of order. However, a qualified electronic technician can perform the procedure in the field when
necessary. Figure 6 shows the location for installing the non-dim (ND) jumpers.
The numbers shown next to the ND jumpers represent the corresponding output number of the PP405-DMX.
Installing an ND jumper makes the corresponding output non-dim (switch only). A DMX value greater than 3 turns a
non-dim output to full intensity. A DMX value of 3 or less turns it fully off.
BEFORE ENERGIZING THE PP405-DMX MAKE SURE:
0 Loads are tested before connecting to dimmers.
0 PP405-DMX has been properly grounded.
0 All line voltage screw terminals are properly tightened to prevent hot spots.
0 Low voltage data lines connections are properly insulated.
0 Low voltage data lines polarity is observed throughout the system.
0 The PP405-DMX is set to the right address.
