The FPX Dimmer – Mr Reliable renewed
For almost a decade now, the FP has been THE stalwart dimmer, giving schools, small theatres and rental companies an economical and reliable way to fade lights up and down. The FPX takes all the rugged reliability and simplicity of the FP and adds some great features.
We’ve all seen circuit breakers pop when you flash a couple of Par-64s, this happens because the current surge can be up to ten times normal with a cold lamp. With the FPX this is a thing of the past: we’ve built in smart turn on software that smoothes the current surge, preventing circuit breakers from tripping. With the FPX you can go from full-black to full-blast without fear of blowing a circuit.
Road-proof and mistake-proof
In response to customer feedback we’ve embedded the circuit breakers in a recess so they won’t get damaged when you’re lugging your rig in and out. We’ve also added an auto-shutoff feature that switches the outputs off if there’s no DMX signal for ten minutes – if someone switches off the control room but not the dimmers, the FPX will work this out by itself.
Easier all round
With a completely re-designed front panel that includes a three-digit seven segment, high-contrast display and easy-to-use buttons for testing and configuration, the FPX is safer, tougher and easier to use than ever.
The FPX– still your favourite dimmer rack, just better.
