The OCL Digital Lighting Controller brings precision temperature monitoring to a higher echelon in the commercial cultivation industry. After extensive testing, the OCL Controller is ready to control dual environments with a maximum of 150 ballasts per environment.
The controller can be used to connect two temperature sensors to measure the temperature in the room. With one sensor the controller will be working in “STANDARD MODE” and with the other, the sensors will work in, “INVERSE” or “OPTIMUM MODE”
The temperature sensor provided should be placed as close as possible to the sensor of the existing climate control system, this to ensure that both sensors will measure the same temperature.
If there is a deviation, the temperature sensor can be calibrated from the Menu.
AUX box ready
Apart from being able to manage up to a maximum of 300 ballasts, the controller makes managing two “AUX BOX” units possible. With the “AUX BOX”, to be ordered separately, it is possible to connect a dehumidifier, extra ventilation or heating during the lights-on or lights-off period.
High temperature auto save temp and shutdown temp
The “AUTO-SAVE TEMP” option senses when indoor temperatures are getting too high and responds automatically by dimming the connected lamps, reducing or even avoiding environmental stress and crop damage.
The “SHUTDOWN-TEMP” is an extra safety feature that will shut down all lighting in the room when the temperature is not reducing after the “Auto-Save Temp” has set in. Causes could be a malfunctioning extraction unit or climate control unit.
A manual resetting of the “SHUTDOWN TEMP” is then required to restart the system.
Be advised that the controller is not a replacement for climate control equipment, its primary use is only to prevent crop damage with the “AUTO-SAVE TEMP” and “SHUTDOWN TEMP” function.
Customise rise and fall options
The Touchscreen controller simulates natural growing conditions with the “RISE/FALL” option, allowing plants to gradually warm up and cool down.
Independent customise light cycles (2 zones)
The Main and Aux light cycle can run separate schedules.
Ideal to control a vegetative and flower cycle.
Standard & asynchronous timer capability
Timer setup can be standard 24H or non 24H days.
Simulate daylight hours or reduce time to harvest by using the asynchronous timer.
Data log tracks garden activity & events
Garden events; start, end, faults or warnings will be saved to a Data Log.

OCL aux box ABM1
For our controllers we developed an AUX BOX Module, the ABM1. As the Controller works on a low voltage output, it is not able to switch between auxiliary equipment.
With the ABM1 you can extend the functionality of your OCL controller to switch between auxiliary equipment, such as heaters, dehumidifiers and CO2 equipment during the lights on or lights off cycle, according to the controller set lighting hours.
