The Maxiswitch 4-Way is a control unit used for safely switching HID lights on and off.
Segmental timers alone will not handle the electrical load demanded by HID lights - it works by diverting the live load around the segmental timer to a contactor/relay and the timer simply switches the contactor/relay to complete/break the circuit.
A core component of any grow room and rated 13A, it can handle up to 4 x 600W grow lamps (3A each). There's two plugs running from it - one goes into the mains socket and the other goes into the timer.
A light controller is an essential component of your grow-room as it will happily handle the electrical load demanded by HID lights. The Maxiswitch 4-way controller is ideal for those using a larger number of lights in their grow room.
The unit works by diverting the live load around the segmental timer to a contactor/relay, the timer simply switches the contactor/relay to complete/break the circuit. This 4-way unit is rated to 13A, it will switch up to 4 X 600W grow lights (600W grow lights draw 3A each in use).
The controller has two UK plugs running from it; one plugs straight into the wall socket, one plugs in through the segmental timer which dictates the light cycle - it comes as standard with a segmental timer.
