Each vertical line of holes, 5 each, are wired to one dimmer  murr006
Here we can see all the circuits waiting to be used. These wires are connected to the circuits in the electric pipes.  murr008
Now this is an antique! A "Solitrol" rack of dimmers. On the left are the actual dimmer modules. Each has: a circuit breaker, indicator lights, trim pots and a handle.  murr010
This is one of the dimmers. On the left is one of the heat sinks. On the right we have the electronics of the dimmer.  murr012
Here's a close up of the front panel of three of the dimmers. The dimmer room was very dark and the flash washed out the details on the dimmer. Sorry.  murr013
This is the back of the rack. This cabinet is almost seven feet tall holding only 30 dimmers.  murr014
