Features & Benefits

Switch, dim and boost centrally

Now you have complete control over the light cycle and the output of your fixtures from one single point. Never reach to a ballast again!

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 bu

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.

Sunrise/sunset

To prevent for example climate (humidity) problems at the end of the cycle you can program a sunrise/sunset period.

Controls 1-600 ballasts

Whether you use it on one light for convenience and crop safety, or in large climate rooms that have hundreds of lights, the EL1 can handle it! 40 ballasts can be connected to the output port, but by using 3 B200 boosters you increase the output capacity to 600 ballasts!

More information

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 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. You can find more information on how to connect your fixtures to our controller here: Single Bus vs. Repeater Bus. 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.

Flexible

Whether you control 2 fixtures of 400: the Master Controller EL1 will do the job, when adding the booster modules you need. Standard, the EL1 output can steer 40 fixtures. For large rooms or distant placement we have temperature probes with a long lead available.

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.
