St. Joseph Catholic Church in Cottleville, MO was recently presented with a difficult dilemma. A large Lightolier dimming system was installed when the church was built in 1999. In recent years, the system had become unreliable due to failures in the controller portion of the system. Unfortunately, the system is out of production and the manufacturer no longer supports it (repairs or parts). Bob Emery, Maintenance Director for this large facility was able to patch the system together for a while, but in February of 2020 a large portion of the system stopped working altogether, leaving the 1500 seat church in the dark. Bob was fully aware that he was going to have to replace the aging system at some point, especially since it was designed for incandescent lighting, not LED. He also knew this was an important and costly endeavor. The church needed time to redesign the system properly and to budget the needed funds. Everyone he spoke with told him he would need to replace the whole system right now or waste resources on a stop gap solution that would be discarded later. He needed an alternative. They found a company that has been serving the technology needs of churches for the past 32 years.
