Get the balanced lighting effects you've always wanted with CONTROLITE improved Autrostot

dimmer control

Trumbull recently built the largest oil bydraulic controlled stage switchboard in the world for Philadelphia's Convention Hall. Whether your needs are as complex - or as simple as a 1 circuit control - Trumbull will tailor-make the most efficient dimming system for your requirements.

Youire in a theatre like your own, only bigger. Same seats, same layout, same Mr. and Mrs. Audience. Yet there's a difference, and you know Why. Lighting. This theatre gets all the balanced lighting effects you've always wanted. So you look for the owner to find out how. And the answer is Controlite.

You learn that Controlite's compact design saves space . . . means easy operation because its switching, dimming and circuit protection equipment are all in one compact enclosure. You ask more questions. How does it operate, for instance? And you find that you can dim lights individually or in combinations. He tells you how quickly fingertip control switches make the set-up . . . how youill save more time when you pre-set your lights so that a scene or presentation can be set up in advance on the Controlite

board. You like that, too.


Then you notice that there's no heat dissipation, so you ask about that. You discover the secret of the improved Autrastat dimmer control . . . how it changes the voltage to dim, instead of increasing the resistance and wasting current as heat. No wonder it's a cool board.

But before you leave, you check one thing more. What about expansion? Is it expensive? Thatls the beauty of Controlite, he tells you; you can add new equipment or

make revisions without paying for a costly change.

You say thanks, leave, and wish yould known about Controlite long ago.
