Gavita – Master Controller EL1
The Gavita EL1 Master Controller represents a huge step forward for indoor lighting systems. Now you can replace your contactor / timer set-up by communicating with your ballasts directly via controller cables. The Master Controller system switches up to 40 ballasts from a central point and comes with an easy-to use interface and a clear display. If this wasn’t enough, the EL1 comes with a host of features that will increase safety, eliminate inrush current and lower the chances of experiencing botrytis (rot).
Gavita’s e-series ballasts no longer require a switchboard to be switched on and off and no longer need their own switch to dim or boost them.
Now you can just touch a few buttons on your controller to be in complete control of all your connected ballasts at once. The Master controllers do this, and much more! The Gavita EL controller series currently comprises of two models: The EL1 and EL2. Both feature auto-dim, auto-shutdown, sunrise/sunset and timer. The EL1 has one output channel, while the EL2 has 2 output channels and additional outputs for External Contactor Modules and alarm contacts. For one room without auxiliary equipment or alarm contacts, the EL1 is the best choice for you.
