EXTENSIVE AND ACCURATE ADJUSTMENT OPTIONS
In the field of digital ballasts, the DimLux is the most silent system, there are little or no vibrant and buzzing sounds and no buzzing and/or rattling relay perceptible when turning on and off.
The Dimlux can be used as a normal (digital) ballast in a normal system with relay and time clock. However, if the DimLux is used in combination with the OptiClimate maxi Controller, the maximal performances and all possibilities of the DimLux can be fully appreciated.

7 DIM OPTIONS INCLUDING 2 SPECIAL ‘BOOSTS’
The DimLux ballast of the 600W and 1000W systems has the greatest dimming range of all electrical ballasts that are available at the moment, so that you can most accurately adjust the amount of light (output) to the requirements of your crops. There are 7 standard dim options available (most ballasts offer 3 or 4), including two special “boost” functions that allow you to safely overclock the lamp. This makes it possible to obtain no less than an extra 15% of grow light from the lamp
STEPWISE TO CONTINUOUS-VARIABLE DIMMING
Connecting a DimLux Expert Series light system to a DimLux Maxi Controller eases the switch from stepwise dimming to continuous-variable dimming, which makes it even easier to effectuate the perfect light setting. You can do this by means of the + and – (brightness) buttons, or you can set the required temperature and leave the rest of it to the Maxi Controller. It won’t get any easier!
DIMLUX EXTREME BALLAST SERIES
SUNRISE AND SUNSET
To copy the natural habitat of plants as good as possible, the DimLux Maxi Controller offers the possibility to simulate sunrise and sunset. In this process, the connected DimLux Expert Light systems are slowly switched on and off.
Plants do not make use of photosynthesis until a certain temperature is reached, if the lights are fully turned on after a dark period, this can be stressful and influence the growth. This can be prevented by simulating sunrise and sunset, and moreover, it saves energy.
Another disadvantage of switching from a cold to a warm room and vice versa is condensation. Water drops on plants can’t be absorbed, and evidently this is a (big) problem as botrytis (rotting) may develop. This can be prevented by simulating sunrise and sunset.
