The LED600 power supply distributes DMX512 data and 24 Volt power to popular LED lighting fixtures. Primarily designed to power and control Color Kinetics ColorBlast 12 fixtures, the LED600 can also drive Color Kinetics iColor Cove, and similar products.
Power and data are provided on twelve 4-Pin female XLR connectors. Power appears on pins 1 and 4, Data is provided on pins 2 and 3.
The LED600 features our DownShifter technology that shifts incoming DMX512 data and outputs the desired channels as channels 1, 2 and 3 [plus 4 and 5 in 5-channel mode]. This allows all fixtures to be set to address “001" with the power supply routing the dmx signals to the proper outputs. To enable DownShifter mode, set the address switch to a valid DMX512 address (1 through 512). The system then operates similar to a dimmer pack with the first fixture being controlled by the selected channel (and two [or four] successive channels), the second fixture being controlled by the selected channel plus three [or five], the third fixture being controlled by the selected channel plus six [or ten], and so forth.
DownShifter mode is disabled (so DMX512 data passes through to every output unmodified) by setting the address switch to 000.
The LED600 operates in either 3-channel mode or 5-channel mode, push button selectable. In three channel mode, each output consumes three dmx channels (36 channels for a fully populated power supply). In five channel mode, each output consumes five dmx channels (60 channels if all 12 outputs are used). To mix three and five channel fixtures, the user must set the power supply to five channel mode. In this instance the three channel fixtures simply ‘waste’ two dmx control channels.
The LED600 is fan cooled with a low speed fan. The supply features a universal, power factor corrected, switch mode power supply (90 - 260VAC, 50/60 Hz). It is fitted with a locking IEC-320 connector and supplied with a NEMA 5-15P (parallel blade with ground) power cord.
