SolarSystem® Controller

  • The SolarSystem controller works only with the California LightWorks SolarSystem 1100, 550, and 275. It can control an unlimited number of lights from a single controller. It allows automated programming for spectrum control, 24-hour timer, and day/week/month calendar. Now it is possible to program an entire grow cycle automatically – varying the spectrum, the length of the day, transitions from veg to bloom, final finishing modes, sunrise/sunset – all in a low cost easy to program digital controller.

    The SolarSystem Controller features programmable 0% to 99% spectrum control over three spectrum ranges – Blue, White and Red. You can use the controller in manual mode only to adjust the light spectrum or use the digital clock and calendar to run custom light recipes over a day, week, month or entire season. Programs can be saved for specific crops or strains. You can also use the view mode to work in natural white light and then switch back to high power reds and blues for accelerated growth.

    Take control of your grow operation!

Need more programs ie 20 instead of 10

TLDR see title lol.
Haven’t used yet…BUT setting up programs for next cycle and noticed the unit is about 10 programs short of being able to set up an entire grow WITH 1 week transitions between veg & flower and flower & finish. You can only store 10 programs. Which would work if you didn’t do 2 weeks of transition phases, which California light works recommends
( but doesn’t offer the space to program. Maybe get rid of or shorten the steps section under each program to expand memory for programs. Other than that I’m happy with it, I’ll just have to reprogram 8 programs after the first 10.

The ability to introduce 21 pre-set conditions through-out a day is awesome. The performance and quality and ability to recover things is amazing. I love these lights.
