First time use

When the fixture is first powered up after exiting the factory, it shows the Program Selection Screen. You’re allowed to choose a growing program. It’s not mandatory to select a program if the fixtures will be used remotely (using a controller or as a slave in master/slave configuration). The programs are used for local control, Master control, and during remote control when the remote is unable to convey multiple channels or the ratio between channels.

The choice depends on the intended use:
🔵 Grow Sets the B:R ratio to 1:1.5 and the schedule from 6:00 to 24:00,
🔴 Bloom Sets the B:R ratio to 1:4.0 and the schedule from 12:00 to 24:00,
🟢 Manual Enables the manual control sliders in the menu and turns the schedule off.

The Grow program never automatically transitions to the Bloom program. This has to be done manually or with a digital remote controller.

The current program is indicated by the color of the Status Screen, as well as in the Select program screen when this is invoked afterward.

The chosen growing program will be remembered until it’s changed. The growing program, as well as all the preferences, are stored in internal flash memory and remembered even when the fixture is powered down.

After choosing a growing program, you and up in the Status Screen. This screen will from now on also be shown whenever the fixture is powered up.
