ETC 7140A1003 overview

  • 1Description

ETC's CEM3 Power Controller forms the basis for essential control of your Sensor dimmer rack. It is the network information hub, input monitor and dimmer module control center, all in one. The CEM3 is designed to simplify the task of getting your lighting system up and running as quickly as possible and, more importantly, keep it running. The intuitive input panel with scroll wheel, keypad and eight-line LCD display enables full 16-bit control of each dimmer module. It is capable of handling up to 48 separate dimmer modules in a single rack and individually controlling their output.

Through the incorporation of remote device management, the CEM3 can instantly relay the health and status of your power supply to the lighting console. A system short or voltage imbalance can be diagnosed and rectified before they become a problem.

The CEM3 is fully Net3 network compliant via ethernet which enables control from multiple locations as well as vital backup and data retrieval. The front USB slot gives the user the ability to download essential settings to a thumb drive for future use and for backup in the event of power failure.
