High quality, Heavy duty timer contactor with heat output

This contactor features high-quality components with higher rated internal specification to cope with up to 4800w of lighting and a heating output up to 2800w. (Maximum lighting load = 8 x 600w or 4 x1000w)

Optilux contactors are the only option on the market with internal components rated to safely power the correct number of lights required by the number of outputs. You must be careful with other brands contactors as they are often lower rated internals than the number of lights they have outputs for, which could cause a fuse to burn or RCD to trip.

A Lighting Contactor with Heating output

With an included ‘Heat’ output on all size models, the Optilux contactor allows you to keep consistent environmental conditions in your indoor garden for uniform crops between cycles, regardless of outdoor temperatures; this allows you to ‘dial in’ the particular varieties you work with for even higher yields and more impressive results at harvest time.

Running a heater during the plants ‘night’ cycle dramatically reduces chances of mould taking hold, as temperatures drop when the lights go out, humidity rises which can precipitate water onto dense plant parts, getting trapped providing the perfect environment for mould and bacteria which can cause a loss of yield. Optilux contactor’s ‘flip flop’ power between lighting fixtures and heat output so when the lights go out, the heat comes on.

If you’re setting up a medium scale garden, or anything with more than 1 x 600w fixture, you will require a contactor to safely ignite HID light fixtures, with a greatly reduced chance of electrical fault developing. We suggest mounting all electrical components (ballasts/contactors/cables/e.t.c) above waist height to prevent water going anywhere near your electrics!

How to use Optilux Contactor:

Complete user instructions are included with the contactor.

The units easy to install and comes ready to plug and play. There is an integral mounting bracket for easy installation.

The timer’s dial is easy to use with each tappet representing 15 minutes of each 24hr period, simply slide the tappets into the on position for the duration you require your lights to be on; the heater socket will be provided power when the lights are off.

We recommend using a thermohygrometer to monitor peaks in temperatures, allowing you to react to any drastic changes. A Air Comfort wireless themohygrometer is particularly useful as it’s graphical logging function allows you to easily read and precisely see when environment events take place.
