ETC PhaseAdept Dimmer Module
The PhaseAdept dimming module from ETC provides high-quality line dimming for LED fixtures and lamps. It is compatible with any vintage of ETC Sensor or Unison DR- and DRd-series power enclosure shipping from the factory or already in the field, regardless of what processor you’re using. The flexible functionality of the PhaseAdept module gives venues the ability to update their fixtures without having to update their dimming and control infrastructure.
With the PhaseAdept dimmer, ETC’s legendary dimming quality is paired with a feature-set modern systems need. PhaseAdept produces smooth, continuous control no matter the fixture type, features forward- and reverse-phase dimming options, and has multiple dimming-curve settings. Configuration of the dimmer module can be done remotely in enclosures with CEM3 and CEM+, and DRd dimming engines; with manual configuration available directly at the dimmer module for legacy systems.
The PhaseAdept Dimmer Module is a dual-density dimmer module for use in any ETC power enclosure without concern for the age of the equipment. The PhaseAdept Module provides forward- or reverse-phase angle dimming specifically designed for compatibility with LED fixtures and replacement lamps. The design features high-density modular assembly, fully-magnetic and fully-rated circuit breakers. Phase angle and min scale control are available electronically when used with Sensor 3 and DRd enclosures (CEM3, E-ACP, or P-ACP controllers) and manually if used with Sensor, Sensor+, Unison DR, and Unison DRd with SmartLink (MPE , CEM, CEM+, S-ACP, CMd, or CMEd,control processor.)

Note: PhaseAdept modules do not offer Advanced Features (AF), but are compatible for use with Sensor AF enclosures.
FUNCTIONAL PhaseAdept modules can be set to two different control modes: Rack mode and Local mode. The control mode is set with a dipswitch that is not accessible when the module is mounted in a dimmer rack (Image 1). Physical covers are in place to help prevent unintended use of the manual controls used in Local Mode.
Rack Mode (default) - When the dipswitch is set towards the rear/backplane side of the module, the module is controlled by the dimmer rack control processor. This mode is supported by CEM3, CEM+, and Unison DRd racks. Please ensure that your control processor software is updated to the most recent version before installing PhaseAdept modules.
Local Mode (retrofit) - When the dipswitch is set towards the front/ label side of the module, the module is controlled by an internal dimming engine and manual controls for phase selection (Image 2) and min scale (Image 3). This mode allows PhaseAdept modules to run in any ETC dimmer rack in the field. • Phase Selection - two dipswitches allow for each output circuit to be either forward or reverse (default) phase. The top and bottom circuit breakers are tied to the left and right dipswitches, respectively. Setting the switch upwards will set the circuit to forward-phase dimming, setting the switch downwards will set the circuit to reverse-phase. • Min Scale - two dials allow for each output to be set to a different min scale value to provide a dimming curve specific to the requirements of the dimmed load. A legend for using the min scale controls is included on the module label (Image 3) • Micro USB - there is a micro USB connection (Image 4) next to the min scale controls which supports module firmware updates. Modules do not need to be installed in a dimmer rack in order to be updated

Model Number Key
- Module Type (LED) - Identifies the function of the module as primarily for LED fixtures and replacement lamps and Identifies the supported mains voltage of the module:
- LED - 120V; ALED - 277V; ELED - 230V; HLED6D2 - 240V Delta; LEDJ - 100V. Modules support mains feeds within +/- 10% of these voltages.
- NUMBER - Identifies the rated max current per circuit within the module; for example, an ELED6 module provides dimming for two 6A circuits.
- HLED6D2 module outputs share a circuit breaker and support a total load of 6A between them.
- R - Module provides per-circuit RCD circuit breaker protection; requires Neutral Disconnect Sensor rack
- N - Module is compatible with Neutral Disconnect Sensor racks but does not provide RCD protection
