Thread: New RRD-6ND?

  1. #1

    New RRD-6ND?

    Any news on how the RDD-6ND will compare cost and performance wise with the 6NA? I just bought a bunch of 6NA’s, almost exclusively to control LEDs, which I’ll likely keep, but I’m curious what I might be missing out on....

    The new RRD-6ND is intended for the RA2Select line, but should come and play with those of us using RadioRA2. List is $139.00, which is a nice price point to hit. My go to was the 10ND at $199. Still only forward phase, neutral required, but most likely covers a lot of the places I was spec'ing the 10ND. Should save a bit of money for all involved.

    Interesting. I notice in the release notes for RadioRA 12.0 it says: "A new neutral based RF dimmer has been added for improved LED control."

    I'm just trying to parse if "improved" is in comparison to the 6CL, or the 6NA, which was already neutral-based.

    I would assume it works similarly to the RRD-10ND. That has always been my "go-to" dimmer for reliability. I always hated watching people use the 6CL for the cost, when the 10ND was a better choice almost 95% of the time. Now there is no excuse. Run the neutrals as long as you have them. Run the CL when you don't. And the 6NA when the customer can't make up their mind, but let them know they might be buying a replacement dimmer if it's wrong.
