Simulate a gradual sunrise, gentle sunset adn soothing moonlight 24 hours per day
Wake your fish naturally
Mimic a natural morning sunrise and evening sunset every day. The Dual Ramp Timer™ is a fully programmable 24 hour LED lighting controller that not only turns your lights on and off, it also simulates gentle sunrise, sunset and moonlight 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.
Featuring two independent lighting channels, each channel can be programmed for on/off times, as well as minimum and maximum intensity/brightness. At each pre-programmed “on” time, the Dual Ramp Timer™ slowly begins to mimic a morning sunrise by gently increasing the lighting level of each channel over 15 minutes. When the programmed “off” time is reached, it gradually dims the light over 15 minutes, ending at your minimum intensity setting – simulating a soft dusk to night. If you want some lunar lighting, simply set your blue channel to a low intensity and the moon will glow all night. By mimicking dawn and dusk, your animals are provided a soothing adjustment to full brightness and 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.
The Dual Ramp Timer™ can be programmed using either the wireless IR remote (included) or via the touch pad on the controller. This provides an effortless way to pre-program on/off times and min/max intensities. Simply program your desired on/off time and min/max intensity for each channel alongs and the controller will do the rest. Widely compatible, the Dual Ramp Timer™ works with TrueLumen LED Lights (and other LED lights) which are 12-24VDC using a standard DC plug. You can even adjust the light intensity of each channel at any time using the IR remote for on-demand color adjustment. Easy to install, simply plug the timer inline, program, and your done! An internal memory even stores your pre-programmed times in case of power failure.
If you’re looking for something more advanced, check out our 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.
