Leprecon uld360 HD
« on: March 03, 2013, 11:04:13 am »

So specs state 3600 watts total 1800 per leg. But I can't find output per ch specs. I've had dimmers (cheap) that were 2400 total 4x600 but the output is rated. I have ran 750watt off of these but am curious can I run all1800 watts out of 1 ch? Was I lucky to get 750 off a Ch? Anyone know? I have both the older and the newer models.

IIRC, there are no individual fuses or breakers on each channel. The first three channels are on one 15-amp breaker, channels 4-6 on second 15-amp breaker (HP model). You can run all 15 amps on one channel or divide as needed across the three channels. I am sure that I have put as much as 1200 watts on a single channel before with no problem.

As shoe-box dimmers go, these are probably the best I've used, especially in build quality and reliability.

Mark is correct.  Each of the 4 or 6 channels in your pack (depending on version) is rated for the full 1800 watts or 2400 watts (for non ETL-listed models) of the supply.

For example, the 3600HP model you get 6 channels fed via 2 cords.  Taking the one leg serving channels 1-3 you can have (assuming ETL-listed 1800 watt version) 3 600w loads, 1 1k load and one 600 watt load, or 1 1800 watt load, etc.

If you got the non-ETL model, you can run 1 2K load per leg.

I'm not a lighting guy but I do it because well you have to. These dimmers have always been a workhorse. I've used others but theses seem to work every time. I was just curious since I never run them 1500 off a single ch with my experience using other products this has been a issue. I like that these will kinda let you do what you want. I don't think ill ever purchase anything different now because if this feature. I like it when stuff just works!

I agree - they are very solid. The new ones are less likely to have constantly broken strain reliefs, which is nice, and about the only thing that ever broke on the old ones.
