SMSCom Hybrid Controller 8A Mk2
The SMSCom Hybrid Controller 8A Mk2 is a fan speed controller that combines mechanical operation with cutting edge digital technology to produce a completely silent, very accurate twin fan temperature and speed controller.
It is ideal for use in hydroponic growing systems. There is absolutely no buzzing or humming from your fans with this controller, thanks to the components that do not use pulse width modulation (PWM) to regulate fan output.
This unit has an additional program to regulate fans to remove excess and unwanted humidity from your growing area during the dark cycle (i.e. when the night is detected). When the grow lights switch off, it automatically switches to this other programme which, every hour, gently increases the speed of the fans for just about long enough to get rid of any excess humidity from your grow room or grow tent.
This slight variation sounds almost insignificant, but it will often be the deciding factor that will prevent rot and mould from developing. This innovative secondary programme may be switched on or off at any time so that you can choose to use this function whenever you like and at any stage of the growing cycle.
Experienced growers will know to use this at the first sign of mould or rot. When the lights are back on again at the end of the dark cycle, the unit switches back to the main operating programme.
The 8A Hybrid Controller Mk2 has a few attributes and features, and these include:
- Completely silent fan speed when in operation, with no humming or buzzing
- Features a very accurate temperature control
- Clever night function to eradicate excess humidity
- Automatic and manual operating options
- Very easy to use and maintain
- 5-metre NTC Temperature sensor
- 5-step fan speed control through a heavy-duty relay
- 5-year manufacturer’s warranty
- Maximum Load 8 amps or 900 Watts
The maximum load is the total maximum wattage safely taken, either split between two fans or from a single socket.
This controller has a 5-metre long NTC temperature probe to locate the unit in any convenient spot in your growing area, usually close to the middle and at canopy height, at the tops of the plants.
The mechanical nature of this unit makes sure that this is a robust, heavy-duty fan controller with totally silent operation.
The integral temperature control provides quicker reaction times and lower idling speeds, and a much-improved accuracy for excellent results from this type of controller.
How does the Controller Work?
The 8A Hybrid Controller is easy to operate. You connect your fans and then position the probe and light sensor within the room, usually in the middle. Then you set the lowest speed for both your duct fans and set the required temperature. The unit will now sustain your temperature by automatically regulating your fans between their lowest and the unit’s highest settings.
