Lighting control at your fingertips
External Contactor Module (15A) with blue indication LED follows lights-on for main channel. Use ECMs to switch CO2, fertigation, heating etc. during lights-on or lights-off cycle. ECMs can be positioned close to the actual accessories. Cable outputs with female and male connector allow easy connection of accessories. Contains industrial contactor, suitable to power 15A loads or to power trigger input. Cage clamp connection for control cord allows easy installation.
The controller can switch all the interconnected fixtures on and off with its internal timer, adjust them to your required output level (in percentage or exact output power) and even simulate sunrise and sunset to gradually adjust the climate in your grow room when your lights go on or off. This electronic controller replaces expensive lighting timers and contactors while preventing ballast current in-rush when switching on your lights.
Two very important features are the autodim function and emergency shut-down. When the temperature in your grow room rises beyond the control level of your climate control your crop can be damaged beyond recovery. The temperature probe senses this and will automatically dim the lights to not overshoot your safe temperature, and maintain it. The display and warning LED indicate when this happens, and also indicate if this has happened while you were away so you can correct the problem. If for any reason your climate control completely fails and the temperature rises to unacceptable levels the system will perform an emergency shutdown of all connected equipment. The alarm contact of the controller can be connected to your alarm system for instant notification.
You can connect all your e-series fixtures to one controller.
