The thyristor dimmer is a classic Leading Edge Dimmer in 16Bit "Thyristor Antiparallel Technology". This type of control is certainly the upper class of dimmers and cannot be compared to the simpler triac dimmers. The control and monitoring for each half-wave is carried out separately here, since a thyristor is available and responsible accordingly. The dimmer is characterised by its extreme robustness in the respective power class. In leading edge technology, all ohmic loads (incandescent lamps, high-voltage halogen lamps, heaters) and inductive loads (halogen with magnetic transformers, fluorescent lamps with VIP-90, motors, plastic welding equipment with magnetic transformers) can be operated. The dimmer has several control modes and can be operated conventionally with potentiometer, button, 0-10V or 1-10V signal or digitally in ISYGLT-BUS, DMX512 8-Bit or DMX512 16-Bit. The basic function parameters are set via 2 DIP switches; detailed parameters can only be set in the ISYGLT system.
