RC4 W-DIM with W-DMX

RC4 Wireless has launched a new W-DMX-enabled product line called W-DIM.  The products bring W-DMX connectivity to a complete system for low voltage bat-tery operated lighting, motors, and more. The first product operates from 6V to 30VDC and provides four outputs of 200 watts each in a compact package. W-DIM uses a switching power supply and high-frequency PWM dimming resulting in minimal heat and power loss with thermal and overload protection. Under most fault conditions individual dimmers will disable themselves until the problem is corrected. W-DMX technology uses Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) and Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum to avoid interference.
