Optimal results. Data driven control.
The Maxi Controller and sensors are the magic that no other light offers. Dimlux separates from the rest by providing a full suite of environmental controls driven by precise data collected in your environment.
The ultimate grow light available today. Dimlux.
Using the Dimlux with a Maxi Controller enables you to plug the Dimlux directly into a wall socket without needing an intervening relay, time delay unit or time switch – which saves you costs. A Dimlux controlled by a Maxi Controller is the only (digital) ballast that does not need to use an inrush current.
Inrush currents of conventional (digital)ballasts vary between 50 and 160 Amp, while newer types of digital ballasts use soft-start technology that limits the inrush current to between 50 and 60 Amp – which is still an appreciable current, especially when multiplied by the number of (digital) ballasts incorporated in the circuit.
One Maxi Controller
All Dimlux ballasts are controlled by 1 Maxi Controller, so all Dimlux ballasts dim at the same time, a feature that is particularly convenient with newly-planted crops: the light output can, for example, can be increased in 10% increments on successive days.
A maximum of 160 Dimlux ballasts can be connected to 1 Maxi Controller. The Maxi Controller can adjust the output according to the ambient temperature.
Controls up to 160 Lights
The lamps are dimmed automatically when the temperature exceeds a maximum predefined level. Dimlux ballasts used in combination with a OptiClimate Maxi Controller also offer many other functions and options.
Using the Dimlux with a Maxi Controller enables you to plug the Dimlux directly into a wall socket without needing an intervening relay, time delay unit or time switch – which saves you costs.
With the Dimlux air humidity sensor, the air humidity can accurately be read from the Dimlux Maxi Controller. If the RH sensor is connected, a humidifier can also be connected to the Dimlux Maxi Controller. To read the VPD, a plant temperature camera is required besides the RH sensor.
The OptiClimate plant temperature camera can be connected to the system to keep an eye on the evaporation of the crops. A too high plant temperature is a sign that the plant is possibly evaporating, for example when there is not enough water or an overdose of light.
In this situation, the Dimluxes are dimmed or turned off to bring the plant temperature back to an acceptable level.
When the Dimlux temperature sensor is connected, the Dimlux Maxi Controller can dim the lamp based on the temperature. At a deviant temperature, the Dimlux Maxi Controller will directly dim the lights to restore the value. If, despite the dimming, the temperature still increases, half of the dimmed lights will be turned off, if the temperature thereafter still keeps on increasing, all lights will be turned off for minimally 20 minutes.
