Give us a call to discuss your needs. Install services available for most locations. Description Lightweight, heavy duty, universal light lifting solution for grow lights. The FGI motorized light lift is a great tool for managing PAR on canopy. It can raise and lower lights 30 inches to give you an even distribution of brightness, making it perfect whether your plants are close or far away from the source! The universal mounting system allows any brand of lamps to be installed with ease too; so there's no need worry about getting wrong type equipment when trying new techniques at growing indoors. Mount at any distance from ceiling. Upper light lift rail holds twin pnumatic motors activated by an up/down switch. The lower rail holds your lights. Heavy duty steel cable connects the top and bottom rail on a set of pullys coordinated to pull the lower rail up and down. The lower rail, when fully retracted (pulled all the way up) should be set to where you want the lights at finished canopy height. This would be the same height you'd choose if you did not use a light lift. 30" of travel allows you to drop the lights during the plant strecth phase to increase PAR levels you would otherwise lose by having your lights mounted in a fixed position. Wasted PAR, wasted energy cost. Grow lights lose 50% of their energy over distance. For example if you bought lights to produce 1200 umols/ms at finished canopy height, say 18". Each 12" further away will reduce PAR by 50%. At 24" from the light PAR will drop to 600 umols/ms. At 36" PAR will drop by 50% once again to 300 umols/ms which is less than what Veg plants require, not to mention early flowering plants. The lightlift gives back wasted PAR and allows growers to concentrate the PPPFD they desire at all stages of growth.

Features: Standard lengths: 16' and 24" Standard Unit Weight: 98 and 120 lbs (not including lamps) Input voltage: 110V per section. Lamp mounting: Integrated quick release mounting for FGI's full line of Lightbars and Lightpanels. We can make Lifters for any brand of grow lights. Twin linear actuators raise and lower the array with the toggle switch Capacity: Up to 250 or 310 lbs Standard travel: Up to 30" up/down travel Safety: Handheld (or wall mounted) up/down switch for each lift. Slow movement with upper limit and lower limit travel stops Secure universal light attachments using 1/4" cotter pins Install Notes: The FGI Lightlifter comes with pre-assembled top rails with pneumatic arms and steel aircraft cable. It ships in 8' sections with joining hardware to extend the final lift to 16'. The lower rails come pre-assembled and we provide sets of clevis cotter pins and rail insertion guides. The lifts consist of twin upper and lower rails. The upper rail has four loops, one at each end, and allows for attachment to ceiling truss which we recommend be done with lengths of stainless steel threaded rod (not provided). The rod should be sized to allow the upper rail to be suspended at a height for the top limit of travel, or in other words the furthest you want the lights to be from the canopy. The lower rails on the lift hold the lights which have 30" of travel when fully extended. Steel aircraft cable (all parts provided) allows for a strong and safe up/down travel. Alternatively, the lift can be suspended from the ceiling truss using chain (not provided). Also recommended for simplifying the truss connection is lengths of Unistrut or Superstrut attached to the ceiling truss. Threaded eye bolts installed on the strut allow for adjustments after the fact. Lift mounting width: The twin 16' rails are independent of one another. In other words, they do not need to be attached to one another. Each of the two sets of top and bottom lifting rails can be mounted at any distance. This allows the lift to be easily adapted to most brands of grow lights. The rail sets would then be mounted at the same distance that the light mounting points are from one another. This allows the lights to be balanced and properly sized to fit the lifts. Light attachment: Our lifts were designed for FGI brand grow lights which have flip up brackets sized to fit into the lower lift rails. However in most cases any brand of light can be used with the lifts. Rope hangers or steel loop cables can be used to attach to the provided mounting guide and clevis with cotter pins. Rope hangars and loop cables are not provided. Clevis cotter pins and rail guides included
Trolmaster HCS-2 Hydro-X Pro Control System $ 2,374.00 $ 2,499.00
10.1' Touchscreen Fully Customizable Free Smart Phone App plus Web-base control system TrolMaster revolutionized environmental controller technology when it introduced the Hydro-X. The Hydro-X Pro continues the revolution with a 10’ touch-screen and a web-based software. The Hydro-X Pro is backwards compatible with all current Hydro-X control / device modules. It also provides greater flexibility and allows any plug-in module to be addressed to be whatever the user wants. The user can also set up each plug-in module to have multiple “conditions” that will activate the module, allowing for almost unlimited control options. The Hydro-x Pro is designed to be a single room controller for reliability and ease-of-use. The Hydro-X Pro expands the capability of the original Hydro-X by allowing up to 50 sensors and up to 50 separate control modules to be connected to a single Hydro-X Pro. Multiple sub-zones can be created within the single grow space by linking a specific sensor, to a specific control function(s).The new 4-in-1 sensor comes with a LCD screen which provide the ease of onside monitoring. Customized programming allows almost limitless degree of control. Each of the variables (Temperature, Humidity, CO2, Light) can be controlled independently, meaning a customized ramp-up / ramp-down can be used to closely simulate natural outdoor conditions, or simply allow complete customization of the environment. Displayed on an easy-to-read and construct “graph” it allows the user to have 100% control of their environment. Another powerful feature of the Hydro-X Pro is the built-in calendar and calendar presets that allows the user to schedule an entire crop’s “recipe” within the Hydro-X Pro. All settings including Lighting, Temperature, Humidity, CO2, and Timers can be specified by the user as they “build” their multi-week crop schedules. Reminders can also be programmed to ensure critical tasks are not forgotten. The TrolMaster APP will also allow for notifications with separate day/night limits to be received by the user. The web-based software provides easy access and more advanced remote control. Onboard data acquisition and the ability to store and share setting between multiple devices, means that user-defined programs & settings can be saved and loaded into multiple Hydro-X Pro units with ease. A personalized screensaver page can be uploaded through a USB port. The same upgradeable feature like Hydro-X gives you the ability for life-time improvements. Included: 1x HCS-2 Controller 1x MBS-Pro Sensor 1x Mounting Plate 1x RJ12 Cable Set
TrolMaster HCS-3 Hydro X Plus Grow Room Controller $ 1,149.00 $ 1,199.00
Description The Hydro X Plus / HCS-3 system is a professional-grade single-zone environmental control system that can control your entire grow space. It has an 800x480 7” LED display monitor and can control an unlimited number of lights, 8 temperature devices, 8 humidity devices, 4 CO2 devices, and 12 programmable timer devices (up to 50 schedules can be created). With incredible flexibility and the expanded product capacity, anyone can now easily customize their own grow room control system for maximum yields. Having multiple control modules also provides the option for the user to create multiple "stages" of growth. By staggering the start times of each stage, the user can minimize the amount of time that plants spend in vegetative growth and focus on the flowering phase. Having multiple control modules also provides the option for the user to create multiple "stages" of temperature and humidity control, which will provide a more stable environment. The HCS-3 system comes with an MBS-PRO 4-in-1 sensor to measure temperature, humidity, CO2 ppm, and the presence of light. Lighting control has never been easier or more capable. The optional MBS-PAR light sensor can be added to the system. It will automatically adjust light intensity to precisely provide the exact amount of illumination for optimum plant growth. The Hydro-X Plus has been can also track your DLI levels. Having 2 separate lighting control channels allows the user to create multiple lighting layouts (and dimming sequences) based on their individual preferences. Besides controlling your room, if a problem is detected by the HCS-3, a warning message (notification) will be sent to your smartphone. Up to 10 smoke detectors and 10 water leak-detectors can be connected to the HCS-3 which will alert you if there are any fire or water leaks. The HCS-3 also offers multiple advanced functions to control your entire grow room or greenhouse such as Sunrise / Sunset simulation, DLI control, overheat protection, Spectrum & Group lighting control, and more.
