Section 1 - Hardware Description
General
The EC21 dimmer rack is a listed, free standing, factory assembly of welded
steel and aluminum construction finished in a fine textured, scratch resistant
coating.
Each EC21 dimmer rack consists of a rack processor housing (RPH) with one
or two rack processor modules (RPM), a fan module, and up to 24, 36 or 48
dimmer modules. The dimmer connectors at the back of the rack provide for
load wire connection. Main bus bars are provided for line wire connections. A
earth lug is provided in the rack. The dimmer connectors in the rack are
polarized to prevent dimmer modules being plugged into slots inappropriate for
their rating. The dimmer racks can be individually fed or bused together using
an optional busing kit.
Large dimmer racks have provision for up to 48 dimmer modules. Mid-range
dimmer racks have provision for up to 36 dimmer modules. Small dimmer
racks have provisions for up to 24 dimmer modules. Dimmer modules contain
one, two or four dimmers, and dimmer module types can be mixed within a
rack in various combinations.
Rack processor modules are available with 96 or 144 dimmer control outputs
to drive EC21 dimmers.

Construction
The rack is constructed of welded steel and aluminum with bolt-on covers, and
is finished in a fine textured, scratch resistant coating. The rack will accept
removable trays for the dimmer modules, which are screwed in place. The
rack and all modules are earth grounded. The electronics chassis and fan
module are located at the bottom of the rack.
A hinged, locking door covers the front of the dimmer rack. Rack components
are designed for easy removal and installation so that the dimmer rack is open
and empty during installation. Mounting holes are provided so that racks can
be bolted together and to the floor.

The mains bus bars are at the bottom of the rack. They may either be bottom
fed or the supply cables routed down the rear right hand side of the rack from
the top. Contractor load wire connections for the live and neutral route through
the top of the rack and directly onto the module connectors.
The rack is provided with three-phase plus neutral and earth bus bar
distribution, located at the bottom of the rack. The maximum power rating for
each dimmer rack is 800A per phase. Busing across multiple racks is possible
using the rack interconnection busing kit.
Note: Three-phase delta racks and single-phase racks are available in custom
applications.
Rack Supply Voltage and
Frequency
Phasing
Dimmer Module
Connectors
The EC21 rack is suitable for use with supply voltages of between 90 and
264VAC power and frequency range of 47 to 63 Hz.
Phasing within standard dimmer racks is sequential across the dimmer slots,
running in the phase sequence L1 L2, L3 L1, L2 L3. All dimmers in a vertical
column down the rack are on the same phase. In dual dimmer modules, both
dimmers are on the same phase. In quad dimmer modules, all four dimmers
are on the same phase. When looking at the front of the dimmer rack, phase
L1 is the first and fourth columns. Phase L2 is the second and fifth columns
and phase L3 is the third and sixth columns.
The modules connect to the rack through a proprietary connector with female
power pins and solid brass male power pins. The connector is self-aligning
when the module is inserted. Control signals are incorporated into the
connector.
2
The aperture is suitable for wire gauge 16mm or smaller, and has a tapered
entry hole to ease wire insertion. The wire is retained by Allen screw. A wire
2
adaptor is available for 35mm wire, when required.
Control Input/Output
Connection
Cooling Fans
The Control Interconnection Card (CIC) contains all terminals for control
input/output with the exception of the Ethernet receptacle that is located in the
upper left rear of the rack.
The dimmer racks are cooled by a set of low noise variable speed fans in a fan
module at the bottom of the rack. The cooling system is designed to let the
rack continue functioning if any one of the fans fail. Cooling air is pushed up
through the dimmer stack and exhausted through venting at the top of the
rack. These fans are for dimmer cooling only, and can be set to fixed or
variable speed.
The fixed speed fan setting is for situations where changes in ambient noise
are a problem. With this setting, the fans are always ON when any dimmer is
energized.
2
The variable speed fan setting minimizes noise and maximizes fan life. With
this setting, the fan speed with non-reporting modules is adjusted based on the
temperature of the dimmer rack. The fan speed with reporting dimmer
modules is based on the temperature of the dimmer modules and the dimmer
rack. Increases in fan speed take 1 minute with this setting, while decreases
in fan speed take 5 minutes. Fans are turned OFF when no dimmers are in
use.
Rack Processor Housing
(RPH)
Each EC21 dimmer rack contains a rack processor housing (RPH). This
housing contains the rack processor module(s), power supplies, and control
interconnection card (CIC) for the rack, and is shipped separately from the rack
to minimize the possibility of damage.
This chassis can be equipped with one or two rack processor modules (RPM).
The second processor module acts as a backup to the main processor. The
configuration data from either processor is transferred into the other processor
automatically. The currently inactive processor always tracks the currently
active processor.

Rack Processor Module
(RPM)
Each EC21 rack contains one or two rack processor modules (RPM). The rack
processor module is available in two variations: 96 outputs and 144 outputs.
Each rack processor module has an LCD display, keypad, and LEDs to report
processor module and dimmer status and allow simple setup and control at the
rack. If there are any rack or dimmer events reported, the display will show
error messages.
Pressing the > key takes you into a series of setup menus to view and set up
the more frequently used EC21 features. See the Operator’s Manual for details
on accessing these functions.
All program data is held in non-volatile RAM within the rack processor module.

Control Interconnection
Card
The Control Interconnection Card, or CIC, is the printed circuit board on which
all contractor control wiring connections are made. It is located on the top of
the Rack Processor Housing (RPH) and contains:
•
An optional Ethernet switch, which connects to a Strand ShowNet system
and is ACN (Architecture for Control Network) ready. This switch allows
for easy connections between dimmer racks. It also connects to the
network receptacle located in the upper left rear of the dimmer rack.
•
Two optically isolated DMX512 control inputs. The first input will accept
DMX512. The second DMX512 input is configurable to accept either
DMX512, Strand Lighting’s System Wide Control (SWC) dimmer protocol
or Strand Lighting’s Outlook architectural protocol. Each DMX input has a
patch to allow overlapping or separation of any DMX control level.

Dimmer Modules
The power modules are the high power switching section of the EC21 dimming
system. The power block in this module is the interface between the high
power AC and low power control. It is driven by low level signals (5mA, 3-24V)
and switches high level signals (up to 50A, 240VAC). High specification
filtering, thyrisor dimming, contactor non-dims, Sinewave dimming, and load
status reporting electronics are available as options. Dimmers can be mixed in
any combination in a rack. This lets you use the exact dimmer type needed for
each circuit.
Quad dimming modules are also available in custom racks.
Power modules are constructed from aluminum, folded to form three sides of
the dimmer and to support the dimmer connector and heatsink. The fourth side
of the dimmer is formed by the heatsink. The top and bottom of the dimmer are
open for cooling.
A sturdy handle is provided below the circuit breakers.
An optional locking bar on the dimmer tray secures the dimmers in the rack.

Modules with standard dimmers in EC21 racks. These dimmers report many dimmer
status items back to the processor. The information can be accessed through
various menu items. The processor can then display a wide range of faults and
diagnostic data.
Each Reporting dimmer module contains a temperature sensor which will shut
it down if it overheats. Anything causing overheating in the rack will cause a
gradual shutdown as each Reporting dimmer module overheats.

Section 2 - Installation
Environmental
Considerations
Before installing your EC21 rack, you should carefully consider the
environment in which the equipment is to be installed, the power feeding the
equipment and the required conduit and/or cable runs.
To maximize equipment life and minimize the chance of failures, the following
environmental requirements should be met:
•
•
•
•
•
Warning
Operating temperature: 0 to 40°C ambient
Operating humidity: 5%-95% non-condensing
Storage temperature: -40°C to 70°C
Storage humidity: 0% to 95% non-condensing
Shock resistance in transit without damage: 40G 10mS in any of the X, Y,
Z planes.
Dimmer rack efficiency is at least 97% with standard modules. Since the
remainder of the energy is dissipated as heat, racks should be installed
in a room with adequate ventilation to dissipate a heat load equivalent to
at least 3% of the maximum load the dimmer racks will handle
Electrical equipment must not be used in close proximity to flammable
materials.
This equipment is for indoor use only
Warning
Warning
AC Lighting Loads Only!
The short circuit rating for this product is 50,000 AIC. Provisions can be
made for optional amp trap devices to provide 100,000 AIC fault current
protection, if required.
Fan and filter choke noise emissions at some levels may be
objectionable, therefore racks should be installed away from stage and
audience areas.
Do not obstruct the ventilation at the front of the dimmer rack
A 90 to 264VAC, 3-phase, 4-wire plus earth, 47 to 63Hz power source must be
provided for processor assembly power. Processor assemblies operate on
any power source in the listed range, but the power source must be correct for
the dimmers used in the system. Dimmers are available in 120V and 230VAC
models. Racks are available in three-phase, single-phase and three phase
three-wire delta configurations. Please consult Strand Lighting on the actual
main feed size required for specific installations.
Strand Lighting recommends that the dimmer rack power be a separate feed
and that no other equipment share the feed. Because phase control dimmers
rd
impose high 3 harmonics loads on the supply the supply transformer
impedance should not exceed 5%.
Dimmer racks fully populated with Sinewave modules impose no additional
harmonic loading on the supply, therefore this recommendation is inapplicable.
Do not install this equipment with power applied.
Make sure that incoming power is disconnected before proceeding with
the installation.
Section 2 - Installation
7
Conduit Layout
The location of conduit runs and their entrance to the dimmer rack is important
and should be carefully planned before cutting holes or attaching conduit.

Top Of Frame
Cover Panel
Figure 6 – Recommended Conduit Cutouts
(Top of Rack)
Do not run power feed or load wires in the same conduit or wireways as
control and low voltage wiring.
Do not run load cable trays and/or conduit in close proximity to any computer
or computer equipment.
Do not run wiring from other unrelated equipment in the same conduit with
EC21 wiring.
Do not run control wires from dimmer rack locations marked for load or power
wires, and vice versa. These locations are chosen to minimize electrical
interference between various sections of the system.
Do not run wiring in ways other than shown on the system riser diagram or
use alternative control cables to those specified by Strand Lighting.
Do not substitute plastic conduit for metal conduit. Metal conduit acts as a
ground and shield.
Do not substitute shielded wiring for unshielded wiring or conduit. Changes in
transmission line capacitance can cause problems with the control signals.
8
Positioning the
Dimmer Rack(s)
Fan and choke noise may be objectionable if the racks are installed close to
audience or performance areas. The racks are best installed in a dedicated
plant room remotely located from the stage, audience, and acoustically "live"
positions of the performance area.
Attach the racks to a sturdy wall and to the floor. Mounting holes are provided
for this purpose, and are positioned as shown in Figure 7. Racks may be
placed in a "back-to back" configuration if they are attached securely to the
floor.

Preparing the
Rack for Wiring
The EC21 rack is supplied without the door installed. The dimmer modules
and rack processor housing are supplied separately. In order to gain full
access to the rack, you must:
1. Remove the top and bottom grills.
2. Remove the thermostat bar.
Be careful not to damage the thermostat. A damaged or broken
thermostat will render the dimmer rack inoperable.
3. Remove the eight dimmer trays.
4. Remove the fan housing.
Do not remove the door from its carton.
Do not install the dimmer rack door.
This will be installed by a Strand Lighting Engineer or an Authorized
Service Center Technician as part of the system commissioning.
If the dimmer rack is to be installed without a factory commissioning,
then the Electrical Contractor shall install the door at the completion
of their works.

routed down channels next to the dimmer receptacles so that they are out of
the way once the rack is assembled.
Only hook up AC lighting loads to this equipment.
Warning
Connect load wiring according to your system drawings. Set screws in the
dimmer receptacles require a standard 1/8" Allen wrench, one supplied per
dimmer rack (see figure 12).
Neutral wires for the Quad receptacles terminate on the neutral bus
bar located at the top of the dimmer rack.

control cable harnesses are factory wired to the dimmer slots and plug into
their dedicated connection point on the CIC. Uncoil the dimmer control cable
harnesses marked ‘T1’ through ‘T6’ and ‘B1’ through ‘B6’ and connect them to
the CIC board where shown in figure 16.
NOTE: EC21 requires that the dimmer control ribbon connectors terminate in
this order: T1, T3, T5, T2, T4, T6 and B1, B3, B5, B2, B4, B6 (see figure 16
below).
Connecting the Control
Signal Wiring
EC21 dimmer racks accept a variety of data signals as inputs and outputs and
provide control signals to the dimmers in the rack, together with status signals.
All contractor control signal wiring is connected to the control interconnection
(CIC) card located on the top of the rack processor housing (RPH) with the
exception of the Ethernet cable that is terminated at the upper left rear of the
rack. All external control wiring is run in the wire trough mounted at the rear
left-hand side of the rack. Connect the 3 ft. Ethernet cable (supplied) to the
RJ45 connector mounted on the cable trough located at the rear-left of the
dimmer rack. See figure 17 on page 18 for details.

Wherever possible, control station runs should be single pulls directly from the
first control station in a daisy-chained run.
Do not cut the control cable at junction or pull boxes. The control cable must
be a continuous run from the rack to the wall stations.

If connections must be made in a junction box due to length of run or other
considerations, these connections should be made using good quality terminal
blocks incorporating a wire protection leaf. Simple twisting of the conductors
will result in gross reliability problem.

Safety Check
Before applying power to the system you should double-check all of your
wiring.
1. Check that all terminals, screws, and bolts are secure and tightened
according to the torque setting on page 15.
2. Check for stray wire strands and make sure wires are correctly restrained
and not in contact with metal edges or obstructing the dimmer module
ventilation paths.
3. Check earth connections.
4. Double-check neutral connections and positively verify phase orientation at
the input bus bars. Ensure that neutral has not been confused with a
phase - connecting the unit “across the phases” will do severe damage.
5. Make a full safety inspection of all load wiring.
Initial Power Up
Systems purchased without commissioning support are now ready for system
power. For such systems, follow the steps below.
1. Make sure the incoming power is appropriately rated and safe to energize.
If not, correct before proceeding.
2. Make sure the control input signals to the dimmer racks are off.
3. Apply power to the system.
4. Check that the fans run. Should any loads be driven there is a fault (but
maybe some dimmers are set to “Panic”). Sort out before proceeding
further.
5. Turn off main power to the rack and insert the rack processor module (do
not insert any backup processor at this stage).
6. Turn on power to the rack.
If the system does not function properly, follow the troubleshooting instructions
in the EC21 Operator's Guide. If these steps fail, or for assistance with
replacement parts, please call Strand Lighting or the local Authorized Service
Center in your area.
Section 3 - Commissioning
25
Processor Self Test
and Fault Identification
Once you have applied power you need to make sure that the system is
working correctly and the rack processor modules are set properly for the
installation. This step checks for any problems due to shipping or installation.
First ensure that the system is properly operational with just the main
processor fitted. Note the software version installed on the main processor.
Switch off, remove the main processor and fit the backup processor. Switch
on and note the software version installed on the backup processor. If
different, first install appropriate software version.
When verified both processors have the same version of software installed in
both processors.
Normal operation is for the backup processor to display “Processor disabled &
updating” for a few moments followed by “Processor disabled & tracking”. This
will occasionally change to “updating”, reflecting data changes occurring on the
main processor transferring to the backup.
When the rack is switched ON, a number of self-tests are run. If no faults are
detected, the system displays the default message as shown:

and will automatically scroll the display to show a description of the
event(s) Refer to the EC21 Operator's Guide for a description of event codes.
If any other LED does not illuminate correctly, switch OFF the power
immediately and check the installation again. If the fault persists and all wiring
seems correct, call Strand Lighting.
If the LCD shows an error, see the Error Log section of the EC21 Operator's
Guide.
