The Maxiswitch PRO 4-Way is a high spec control unit used for safely switching up to 4 x 1000W HID lights off and on, rated 26A.
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.
Built to CE and UK standards and with switchable sockets and a built-in timer to give you total control, it comes with a 2 year warranty as standard. Recommended.
All Maxiswitch Pro light controllers are built in the UK to CE standards and feature:
Plugging any HID lighting directly into a domestic timer unit will cause the timer to prematurely fail and could lead to a potential electrical hazard. This will also eventually result in your lights being fused in the on or off state. Using a light controller will avoid this problem.
All Maxiswitch Pro light controllers come with a two-year warranty.
