Parlights offers 3 retrofit solutions for Strand CD-80 Dimmer Racks:
Philips/ Strand C21 Upgrade (CD80SV/CD80AE/CD80)
The C21 Dimming processor system represents premium performance and high value for all levels of users. Designed to interface directly with Strand Lighting’s ShowNet Ethernet, C21 processors include an Ethernet port. An available Ethernet switch option may be added to any processor to simplify network wiring for multiple rack installations. Two DMX512 inputs are standard with the second input available for use as an RS485 input to support existing Outlook or SWC systems or our new Vision.net architectural controls. All systems are easy to set up and configure over a network using a standard web browser to access rack status and configuration options.
The CD-3000 is a next generation retrofit electronics package designed specifically for any vintage of Strand CD80\AE dimmer rack. The CD-3000 will replace the aging control electronics of the existing CD80\AE dimmer rack making system replacement completely unnecessary. This full-featured, ETL listed state-of-the-art unit provides a low cost digital interface to any of today’s modern lighting communication protocols
Johnson Systems CD2000 Upgrade (CD80/ CD80AE)
