Calgary Board of Education (CBE)

Johnson Systems Inc. (JSI) completes a four year equipment supply and integration for the Calgary Board of Education (CBE), Canada's second largest school board. Working with the CBE prime electrical contractor, JSI provided engineering, design, equipment, field support and site integration services.

A combination of both new and retrofit JSI products were used in various combinations
to upgrade 41 junior and senior high schools.

RetrofitThe Calgary Board of Education (CBE) was experiencing a lack of direction and advice on how to deal with the drama and stage lighting systems," explains Christopher Sprague, Theatre Consultant with Ability Technical Services Inc. "Standardization, dependability, ease of operation and cost-effectiveness were my primary goals. Years of various lighting dealers with ideas of selling what they knew or could source resulted in many systems of various quality and a most unserviceable situation. We saved the Calgary Board of Education in excess of $50,000.00 per school by retrofitting the existing racks rather than sending them to the landfill. There was no need for such waste! The CD-2000 provides all the latest necessary features of a new dimmer rack without the need for replacing perfectly good dimmer components and with minimal electrical contracting costs", stated Sprague. Schools containing existing Strand CD80 or Electro Controls Quad dimmer racks were retrofitted with CD-2000 or QD-2000 control systems and supplemented as necessary with additional JS-ICON dimmers.

Tight space constraints and virtually silent operation allowed for 48 x 2,400W ICON dimmers to be added where a traditional dimmer rack footprint would not have fit.
