Timers, Relays & Contactors
Lighting relay and contactor kits are a fantastic way to automate the lighting system for your grow room. Turning the lights on and off manually can be both a time consuming effort, and a potentially bad one. With turning the lights off and on manually there comes the risk of leaving your grow lights on for too long, or too short a time and can disrupt the light cycle for your grow room. With Lighting Relays and Contactors, it can both manage the power for your growing lights, as well as the timing system. Simply set the time that you want your grow lighting to turn on and off, and it does it all for you.
Timers Relays And Contactors For Hydroponics
Timer relays and contactors make hydroponics lighting easier and more efficient when setting up indoor hydroponic grow rooms or grow tents. When metal halide bulbs or high pressure sodium bulbs are used for lighting in a hydroponic grow room or grow tent with a lighting relay it is important to also have a contactor installed. When contactors are used with lighting relays they will protect your plants from the possibility of a power outage due to power surges.
The hydroponic lighting relays and contactors are necessary with the metal halide and high pressure sodium bulbs because they allow the lights to be set to automatically turn on and off at certain times through timers and a remote switch located outside of the hydroponic garden. The hydroponic relays are installed between the power source and the bulbs and usually the light relay is also connected to the remote switch for easy access.
