Electrical Switch Wiring: Locating a Commercial Grade Dimmer Switch



Dimmer Switch Question:
I am trying to find a component to a commercial grade dimming system in my church, but can't find the manufacturer of the system online. Is Atmos Corporation still around?
The system is 30 yrs. old.

Hi Rob - Great Electrical Repair Question!
I have never heard of Atmos however any dimmer would take its place as long as the voltage and watts are the same, being careful to be larger than the required amount of watts actually being consumed at the highest level.
Leviton and Lutron make a very good line of quality dimmers. Let me know if this helps.

From: Rob L
Thanks for the response Dave.
Yea, that gives me some direction to go in. It's not actually any one dimmer that failed. It's the controller that feeds the master dimming rocker switch on the console in the audio/video booth


I'm thinking this controller in my hand has a blown transformer because the 110V dies right there and nothing comes out of the secondary side .12, 24V or whatever.
I'll keep digging.
Thanks Again,

Rob
