Control up to 80 Gavita Pro E-Series Lighting Systems with a Gavita Master Controller.

Use it to automatically switch lights off and on at your desired times. 

It’ll also mimic the pattern of natural daylight when in sunrise and sunset mode, where lights slowly dim or boost over 30 minutes.

To prevent overheating, there’s the auto dim and emergency shut down features – they’ll kick in if your grow room gets too hot. You’ll always get a warning before, and a notification after this happens.

Forget high inrushes - all ballasts stay in standby mode until they get a signal from the controller to switch on.

You don’t need a separate timer or contactor – you can control all ballasts at once with a couple clicks.

Controllers are easy to use – everything’s plug and play, and controlled by just 5 simple buttons!

Control all ballasts at once - no need for a switchboard

Q & A

Questions and Answers (1)

i see the el2 can run 2 rooms on 12/12 but can it 2 different light cycles from this unit in seperate rooms or do i have to buy 2 units to achieve this thanks in advance :)
You would need to use 2 separate units to run different light cycles, but 2 12/12 cycles can be run from 1 EL2 Controller.
