The MX-3000 is a next generation retrofit electronics package designed specifically for upgrading the EDI/Cooper MX Series performance dimmer racks making system replacement completely unnecessary. This full-featured, state-of-the-art control module provides a direct digital interface to most of today’s modern lighting communication protocols. Designed based on the successful 3000 Series control technology developed by JSI, the MX-3000 shares identical firmware and features as other popular 3000 Series products.

The MX-3000 installs in minutes by simply “plugging” into the existing OEM backplane. This compact unit has been designed for OEM rack compatibility, longevity and reliability with the end-user in mind. Intuitive LCD user interface combined with a single modular design makes the MX-3000 extremely user-friendly and easily serviceable. Advanced next generation hardware and software designs reduce stand-by power consumption to less than 1 Watt, allowing for compliance with the International Energy Agency’s “One Watt Initiative” for standby power consumption. MX-3000 is over 4x more energy efficient that the obsolete OEM electronics!

Full featured, hi-resolution dimming with ultra-fast response. Exclusive “lamp warming” techniques extends lamp life considerably. An environmentally and financially responsible solution that offers unsurpassed high performance in a matter in minutes!

ETL ApprovalJohnson Systems Inc. products are ETL listed and comply fully with UL508 and CSA22.2 No 184 electrical safety approvals. This Internationally recognized safety approval covers the entire assembly specifically for installation into an existing UL approved enclosure (OEM rack) and in no way compromises the electrical safety of the overall system. Official documents available on request.
