The Maxiswitch Pro Solo Timer is a heavy duty timer that will reliably switch a 600w HID light off and on, without the need for a contactor/relay.
All HID lights (as well as 250W fluorescent and over) draw sufficient electricity to fuse the points within standard segmental timers and render them useless - these heavy duty timers allow growers to have an automated light cycle without the added expense of a contactor/relay.
They're a cost-effective, automated solution for growers using a single light.
The Maxiswitch Pro Solo timer will reliably switch a 600W HID light on and off without the need for a contactor or relay - theyre a very cost-effective solution for growers with a single light who wish to automate their light cycle.
HID lamps all draw sufficient electricity to fuse the points within standard segmental timers and render them useless. The only solution on the market to this point has been to use a relay or contactor in conjunction with a segmental timer to protect the timer from the surge and switch lights on and off reliably.
We have also found that over 250W of fluorescent lighting can be too much for standard segmental timers so these heavy-duty timers will allow growers to have an automated light cycle without the added expense of a contactor or relay.
