Current USA Single Ramp Timer Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Simulate a gradual sunrise and sunset every day! The Single Ramp Timer™ is a fully programmable 24 hour LED lighting controller that not only turns your lights on and off, but also simulates a gentle sunrise and sunset for your critters. Designed for both freshwater and marine aquariums, it’s extremely simple to use and slowly acclimates animals to the bright light that LEDs produce. This slow acclimation helps reduce stress often caused by sudden light intensity changes and provides a more natural rhythmic daily light cycle. At the pre-programmed “on” time, the Single Ramp Timer™ slowly begins to mimic a morning sunrise and gently increases the lighting level to full brightness over 15 minutes. When the programmed “off” time is reached, it gradually dims the light over 15 minutes before turning off, simulating a soft dusk to night effect.

- Gently acclimates fish to bright LEDs
- Reduces stress, provides a natural rhythmic 24 hour lighting schedule

- Widely compatible, the Single Ramp Timer™ works with any 12-24VDC LED light using a standard 2.5mm x 5mm DC plug (we suggest checking with your light manufacturer to ensure compatibility and warranty coverage.)
- Plug-and-play, uses your existing low voltage transformer
- Internal memory stores your pre-programmed times in case of power failure
- Two Modes: At pre-programmed times, timer will either turn light on/off, or turn light on/off with 15 minute gradual ramp up/dim down
- Manual button allows for light to be turned on/off on-demand

Technical Info
- 12/24VDC, maximum of 84 watts @ 24VDC, 42 watts @ 12VDC (uses your existing LED transformer)
- Measures 3.25” x 0.75” x 2.25” with 12” cords & plugs
- Recommended for Current-USA Satellite LED/LED+ fixtures and flex strips, TrueLumen and TrueLumen Pro LEDs; Ecoxotic Stunner, Panorama Pro, Panorama Marine and Actinic Blue, and EcoPico LED lighting.
- Utilizes PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) dimming, flicker free

Comments: I"m very pleased with the Current USA ramp timer. It works beautifully. The only draw back that I've found is that you can't use the moon phase functions on the light as there is no power going to the light once the timer has "ramped" down for the night.

Comments: I bought my Tru Lumens LEDs (3) awhile ago. Their upside was that they were affordable LEDs. Their downside was the only method of control was a manual dimmer. When the Ramp Timer and Ramp Timer Pro came out, I bought them almost immediately. The Ramp Timer is a single channel LED timer that allows you to set the on/sunrise and off/sunset. The timers took care of the downside of the Current USA LEDs. Now they're affordable and controllable. Easy setup and lighting becomes automated, I recommend these if you've got the Tru Lumens LED strips.

Comments: I purchased this item 11 days ago and it works PERFECT! It really does work! I have TrueLumen Pro LED Strip Lights along with their moonlights. The moonlights go on an hour before & after the main lights go on/off using a seperate timer. The ramp timer will go on little by little for 15 minutes until they are at full power at the end of the 15 minutes. Same thing at night as it takes 15 minutes for the lights to dim little by little until they completely turn off at the end of 15 minutes. It does simulate dusk & dawn with this timer along with my moonlights.

Comments: Simple easy to use timer. As a personal preference I would have liked the ability to modify the length of the ramp up time for sunrise and sunset, but compared to just jolting on the lights it's great.

Comments: I am currently using the single ramp timer with Current's Freshwater LED+. It was easy to set up and works the way it was intended to. You have two control choices, on/off or ramping. Ramping is set in 15 minute intervals and cannot be changed. It works well with the LED+ and can be used with other lights according to the manufacturer. Once you set your on and off times the unit will ramp up an then ramp down. Once you ramp down and your lights are off the remote for the LED+ will not function. You will need to manually turn on the ramp timer by pressing the Hour+ key on the keypad and then you can control your lights with the remote. The ramp timer has a 24 hour (military style) timer which can double as a clock if you wish. Overall I am happy with this product and is a great advancement over the usual turn-the-knob style timers available on the market.
