Gavita Master controller EL2

Gavita Mastercontroller EL2

Gavita Master controller EL2

Lighting control at your finger tips! The industry standard controller for e-series fixtures for large rooms or double “flip/flop” configurations, with optional auxiliary equipment contactors (ECMs) and alarm contact outputs. The Master Controller EL2 is our entry level system for controlling large rooms with e-series fixtures centrally. It is a double port controller for a large single room or two rooms in a flip/flop situation (2 flowering rooms). This is specifically convenient when you have limited power: you can run two flowering rooms in inverse schedules, without overloading your electrical supply.

Features & Benefits

Easy installation

The complete installation is plug-and-play. Every e-series fixture comes with all necessary cables to install it on the e-series control bus.

Simple programming

Setting up the controller is a breeze, with a 5 language text interface in plain language on a high quality OLED display.

Crop safety - autodim

In extreme conditions the Master Controller automatically dims your lights, so your plants will survive the high heat.

Crop protection – auto-shutdown

When cooling or ventilation fails, the Master Controller automatically switches off your lights, preventing imminent damage to your crop (or worse).

Extra signaling LEDs

In a glance you can see the status of your lights and alarms by the blue and red signaling LEDs. No need to read the status screen. Alarms will even be remembered.

More information

Now you can switch, dim and boost all your fixtures from a central point, while safeguarding your crop with the advanced temperature safety features. Installation is plug-and-play using the cables and splitters that are included with the controller and the e-series fixtures.

On top of the double output ports you have connections to our ECM units, which allow you to switch auxiliary equipment during the lights-on and light-off periods, even for flip/flop rooms!
There is a wide range of original Gavita accessories available, ranging from a booster to expand the number of fixtures with 200 fixtures each, to cables, splitters and long lead temperature sensors.

Easy

The Master Controllers are extremely easy to set-up. The two-line green OLED display is sharp and easy to read, even in a high light intensity environment, and all menu items are The Master Controllers are extremely easy to set-up. The two-line green OLED display is sharp and easy to read, even in a high light intensity environment, and all menu items are in plain text. The 4-button control of the menu system is intuitive. A special fifth button is added to directly set the output of your fixtures. Red and blue LEDs show you the output status of your controller ports, and give you a quick view of any error indications.
The wiring system is plug-and-play, with all the cables you need already included with each e-series fixture. The manual also describes how you can make bespoke cables for any length. Different lengths of control cables are also available as original Gavita accessories.
The mounting of the controller in a bracket makes it easy to mount. Two screws are all you need to install the mounting bracket, the controller clicks right in. This also enables you easy access to the wiring at the bottom of the controller.

Safe

The most important and valued safety features on the Master controller are the temperature safety features: Your lamps will automatically dim when your climate control is no longer able to maintain the correct temperature, or will even shut down your lamps when a maximum temperature is reached, safeguarding your crop. These features have save many a crop already!
The control signal is a safe analog low voltage signal, and the controller is protected from signal shortcuts in the wiring. Wiring faults do not kill your controller.

Last but not least the EL2 offers you alarm contacts (NO and NC) to seamlessly integrate your controller in your alarm and monitoring systems. Whenever there is a calamity (power outage, emergency shutdown or sensor failure) the alarm contacts will switch, notifying you of the fact that you will need to take action.

Flexible

Whether you control 2 fixtures of 1000: the Master Controller EL1 will do the job, when adding the booster modules you need. Standard, each EL2 output can steer 40 fixtures. In a one-room configuration it controls 80 fixtures right out of the box. In a multi-room “flip/flop” flowering configuration it controls 40 fixtures in each room. The number of fixtures can be expanded with booster modules. For large rooms or distant placement we have temperature probes with a long lead available.
The EL2 has outputs for two External Contactor Modules, which are also plug and play. These ECMs can switch auxiliary equipment, such as CO2 untis and heaters, during the lights-on or lights-off period.

Sexy

The anodized aluminum extrusion housing is rugged and compact. No more standard grey plastic installation boxes with cluttered buttons and lights: the controller is compact, clean and some even find it sexy.
