Current USA Single Ramp Timer Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Light therapy for your fish. Simulate a gradual sunrise and sunset every day!

Wake your fish naturally
Inspired by mother nature, the Ramp Timer™ is a fully programmable 24-hour LED lighting controller that not only turns your lights on and off, but it also simulates a gentle sunrise and sunset for your critters. Drawing on our years of expertise in both fresh and marine aquarium product development, we’ve designed an extremely simple to use lighting controller which slowly acclimates animals to the high brightness 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.

Wake, sleep, do it all again
At the pre-programmed “on” time, the Ramp Timer™ slowly begins to mimic a morning sunrise and gently increases the lighting level to full brightness over a period of 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. By mimicking dawn and dusk, your animals are provided a soothing adjustment to full brightness and complete darkness, helping to prevent any sudden or stressful light shock. The next day, the schedule starts all over again, creating a natural circadian rhythm to the 24-hour light-dark cycle.

Control in seconds
A push button keypad provides an effortless way to pre-program on/off times and the large LCD display is easy on the eyes. Simply program your desired on and off times and choose between two modes: on/off or on/off with a 15 minute ramp up and dim down. A manual button even allows you to turn your lights on or off instantly. Widely compatible, the Ramp Timer™ works with TrueLumen LED Lights which are 12-24VDC using a standard DC plug. Simply plug the timer inline, program, and your done! An internal memory even stores your pre-programmed times in case of power failure.

Want more?
If you’re looking for something more advanced, check out our Dual Ramp Timer™ with 2 lighting channels and an integrated moon light option. We even have a Ramp Timer Pro™ with 2 channel control of on/off time, adjustable ramp/dim time, min/max intensity adjustment and even storm settings too. Patent Pending.

Comments: Works as designed, doesn't require any additional plug ins, takes up very little space, and works with JBJ Nano-Glo. Wish the display LEDs could be dimmed or turned off.

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.
