Active Grow Digital Lighting Controller
The Plant Lighting Smart Controller (PLSC) is a powerful and versatile device capable of controlling up to 160 total fixtures across 2 groups, each with 80 LED or HID grow lights. The 8 1/2" touch screen makes it easy for growers - any size from home hobbyists all the way through large scale growers to view their individual power levels as well as what’s going on at any given time; whether its setting temperatures & humidity profiles so plants get exactly what they need, to monitoring dimming or emergency shut down status from one central location.
With the PLSC you can set dimming manually or program it using one of three Auto Pilot options, providing growers with the versatility to customize time and/or light schedules to a 24 hour (daily), hourly (hourly over a 24 hr period), or custom over a 48 hour period. Set sunrise and sunset times to control how much time the lights take to dim on and off at the beginning and end of each cycle to imitate natural rising and setting of the sun.
The PLSC features Auto-Dim and Shut-Down procedures with adjustable temperature thresholds so your plants are protected from extreme or unwanted heat levels due to an HVAC failure or other similar emergency. Each controller includes mounting hardware, power cable, two 16′ temperature and humidity sensors, two 10′ RJ14 network data cables, two RJ14 daisy chain connectors and a user manual.
Smart Controller User Manual
Control Multiple Groups of Lights
Manage and control up to 160 total fixtures across 2 groups - each with up to 80 fixtures per group - in separate grow areas with an intuative and easy to use 8.5″ LED touch screen. View each group’s temperature, dimming status, humidity, power levels, and emergency shut down status from the home screen.
Select Dimming & Light Types
Manage each lighting group’s dimming level and fixture type (LED 15-100% or HID 50-115%) from the controller's dimming screen. Choose manual On/Off or Auto-Pilot dimming modes.
AutoPilot Dimming Modes
Dimming can be adjusted manually or light levels and time schedules can be programmed using one of three cycle options: Daily Cycle (24-hr period), Custom Cycle (48-hr period) and Hourly Daily Cycle (hour by hour over a 24-hr period)
Sunrise & Sunset Mode
Use the controller to set a value between 10-60 minutes to control how long it takes for the lights to dim on and dim off at the beginning and end of each light cycle for each group to imitate a natural sunrise and sunset.
Set temperature thresholds for Auto-Dim and Shut-Down to ensure plants are protected from excessive heat in case of HVAC failure or other emergencies.
Quick & Simple Installation
Each PLSC controller includes all necessary mounting hardware, power cable, two 16′ temperature and humidity sensors, two 10′ RJ14 network data cables, two RJ14 daisy chain connectors and a user manual. To the connect the controller to the fixture, plug the RJ14 network data cable into the light fixture’s dimming or communication port.
