Gavita Master Controller EL1

Gavita Master Controller EL1

  • Our e-series ballasts no longer require a switchboard to be switched on and off and no longer need their own switch to dim or boost them. Now you can just touch a few buttons on your controller to be in complete control of all your connected ballasts at once.
  • Our Master controllers do this, and much more! The Gavita EL controller series currently comprises of two models: The EL1 and EL2.
  • Both feature auto-dim, auto-shutdown, sunrise/sunset and timer. The EL1 has one output channel, while the EL2 has 2 output channels and additional outputs for External Contactor Modules and alarm contacts.
  • For one room without auxiliary equipment or alarm contacts, the EL1 is the best choice for you. If you require switched auxiliary equipment during lights on/off, alarm contacts and/or a 2 room 12/12 setup, the EL2 is most suitable.
  • 24 Hour Timer (on/off). Set Ouput level: 50-115%. Show Ouput as Wattage or %. Warranty: 3 years.
  • Switch, dim and boost centrally
  • Easy installation
  • Simple programming
  • Crop safety - autodim

The Master Controllers are extremely easy to set-up. The two-line green OLED display is sharp and easy to read, even in a high light intensity environment, and all menu items are in plain text. The 4-button control of the menu system is intuitive. A special fifth button is added to directly set the output of your fixtures. Red and blue LEDs show you the output status of your controller ports, and give you a quick view of any error indications.

The wiring system is plug-and-play, with all the cables you need already included with each e-series fixture. The manual also describes how you can make bespoke cables for any length. Different lengths of control cables are also available as original Gavita accessories.

The mounting of the controller in a bracket makes it easy to mount. Two screws are all you need to install the mounting bracket, the controller clicks right in. This also enables you easy access to the wiring at the bottom of the controller.

Safe

The most important and valued safety features on the Master controller are the temperature safety features: Your lamps will automatically dim when your climate control is no longer able to maintain the correct temperature, or will even shut down your lamps when a maximum temperature is reached, safeguarding your crop. These features have save many a crop already!

The control signal is a safe analog low voltage signal, and the controller is protected from signal shortcuts in the wiring. Wiring faults do not kill your controller.

Flexible

Whether you control 2 fixtures of 400: the Master Controller EL1 will do the job, when adding the booster modules you need. Standard, the EL1 output can steer 40 fixtures. For large rooms or distant placement we have temperature probes with a long lead available.

Sexy

The anodized aluminum extrusion housing is rugged and compact. No more standard grey plastic installation boxes with cluttered buttons and lights: the controller is compact, clean and some even find it sexy.
