This timer offers an extremely customisable schedule for your grow room. Both standard and asynchronous timer options can be implemented. Light cycles A & B can run on completely independent schedules. Upto 25 sensors per room can be connected for optimal temperature accuracy. All activity; starts, endings etc and events; such as errors or warnings are recorded by the data log for easy monitoring. High temperature auto-dim and shut off operations can be preset by the user to prevent over heating.
The SolisTek Digital Lighting Controller is capable of controlling up to 150 lights in two individual zones, controlling up to 300 lights in total. This is done by connecting up one of the SolisTek ballasts to the device via the auxiliary cables provided and then hooking together in sequence the other ballasts you’re looking to run on the same SolisTek Digital Lighting Controller, this has been given the nick name "daisy chaining".
With the SolisTek Digital Lighting Controller you can control every aspect of your lighting routine down to the finest detail via its 7” touch screen display which has some very interesting features that you don't get with many lighting controllers. The Cloud Mode is a SolisTek exclusive feature that creates a realistic and natural effect in your garden. The mode operates your grow light at full intensity for 3 hours then decreases power for 30 minutes before returning to full intensity, this gives your plants some down time to recover a little every 3 hours, mimicking cloud cover as it passes over head. This leads to healthier plants overall without any loss of quality or quantity.
The sunrise/sunset feature allows you to simulate a natural environment, as the lights turn on they will slowly increase from 50% power to full power over the course of 30 to 90 minutes, this replicates the sunrise plants receive when growing outdoors. The same can be said for the sunset mode it helps plants transition easier from day to night and night to day. Auto dimming is a safety feature that once set will start to dim the lights by 50% if your grow room temperatures start to approach the programmed high temperature point, this allows your grow room to cool by 5 degrees before allowing the lamps to ignite once more. Perfect for running 2 different rooms off the same controller one veg room, and one flower room.
SolisTek manufacture their own bulbs which last a minimum of 2 and a half years, based on 24 hours use. More variations than any other double ended bulb.
SolisTek have created a range of lamps, harnessing a spread of lighting spectrum's to compliment every period of a plants life cycle. From the earliest seedlings stages through to late flower, helping you produce the best possible results every time.
SolisTek 2K - Perfect for flowering, use from beginning till the end of the flowering cycle. Promotes rapid large flower formation, high in yellow, orange and red light
SolisTek 4K - Excellent for both the growth and bloom cycle utilising full spectrum light, much like sunlight. Promotes overall plant health and vitality, high in blue, purple, green, yellow and orange light.
Solis Tek 6K - Brilliant for the vegetative cycle of a plants life. Promotes bushy, healthy plants with short and tight internodes, high in dark blue/purple with added green and yellow light.
SolisTek 10K - Exceptional for ripening and finishing to perfection, use for the last 7-14 days of flower. Promotes a superior end product, utilising intense deep blue/purple fading to turquoise light which literally adds icing to the cake.
SolisTek C1+ 315w CMH Complete Lighting System
The high performance SolisTek C1+ exceeds any other high performing CMH grow light currently on the market, in terms of impressive lighting coverage, low heat output and consistently high levels of full-spectrum photosynthetically active light that your plants will simply adore. For added versatility, the C1+ can be "daisy chained", connecting one system to another in series. The daisy chaining cables also supply power (unlike Gavita and Dimlux systems), so up to 8 of these units can be run from a single plug socket. And don't worry if you want to run even more lights, because you can regulate up to 300 of these units using the sleek and elegant SolisTek Lighting Controller! Brimming with high-tech features and coming with a solid build quality, the SolisTek C1+ is a super easy to install and operate growing system that shows the true power of CMH lighting.
- Produces vast amounts of consistent full-spectrum photosynthetically active light that your plants will adore
- Features a low heat signature, Ignition Control, Sense Smart and Soft Start technology, to protect your fixture from in rush currents, power spikes and drops
- Spreads light to the furthest corners of your growing area, thanks to the SolisTek C1+ Reflector with mirror finish
- Daisy-chain ability allows you to run multiple fixtures in series (up to 8 units total)
- Can be controlled via the SolisTek Lighting Controller if running more than 8 daisy chained lights (up to 300 lights total)
- Low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and low frequency ballast, improves overall efficiency and lamp life span
- All SolisTek 315w CMH Lamps are perfectly tuned for use
- Includes SolisTek 315w CMH 4200K full spectrum lamp, with a 1-year warranty, to cover all aspects of plant growth and bloom

How the SolisTek C1+ Works
The SolisTek C1+ is a complete CMH fixture, utilizing the very latest in ceramic metal halide technology to push CMH lamps to higher levels of spectrum emission. SolisTek designed this lighting system with professional and hobby growers who only want the best quality end-product without a loss in overall yield per watt used. The SolisTek C1+ ballast runs at low frequency with low THD (total harmonic distortion), leading to increased efficiency of the ballast and lamp. The SolisTek C1+ also features "Ignition Control" and "Sense Smart" technology to power your SolisTek lamp properly. Ignition Control and Soft Start slowly increase the amount of power to the lamp, instead of allowing too much raw power to go straight to the lamp, this both protects the lamp and ballast from shock, extending both of their lifespans significantly. Sense Smart regulates the power flow over the time the lamp and ballast are in operation, coping with any loss or increase in power and compensating for either fluctuation.
The SolisTek C1+ Reflector's mirrored finish spreads light evenly to every corner of your growing space, helping to keep your canopy level consistent. With its inbuilt ventilation slits, the reflector allows the heat to rise naturally away from your canopy whilst spreading high levels of PAR (photo synthetically active radiation) down to your canopy with little light loss. The C1+ comes with a SolisTek C1+ 315w 4200K CMH Lamp to provide complete, full-spectrum coverage for all aspects of growth and bloom in one lamp. Another great feature of the C1+ is that 2 to 8 units can be "daisy chained" together, with only one power lead required, saving you valuable plug sockets. For higher numbers of lighting fixtures, connect the SolisTek C1+ to the SolisTek Lighting Controller which can run up to 300 lights (providing they are all SolisTek C1+ 315w CMH Systems) from one central point.
How to Use SolisTek C1+
Simply hang the reflector with the ballast attached and lamp inserted over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls, rope ratchets or jack chain. Fit the lamp.
Connect the input lead from your SolisTek C1+ to the output lead of the ballast ensuring the cable is not pulled tight and does not encounter anything hot (e.g. lamp, reflector, ballast). The SolisTek C1+ is ONLY made for CMH lamps that run at 230 volts. Never use a HPS or MH ballast with CMH lamp holders or CMH grow lights. Connect the mains plug into an electrical outlet socket and switch on. The ballast will start-up and light the lamp.
PLEASE NOTE: The 315w CMH lamps used in the SolisTek C1+ need to be bedded in as follows: on first illumination the lamp needs to be run continuously for a minimum of 15-30 minutes. This will allow the metals within the lamp to fuse correctly.
