What Does Lighting Control Box Mean?
A lighting control box controls indoor grow lights to provide adequate artificial sunlight for plants. It has been designed to handle the power loads of grow lights on a daily basis.
Utilizing a lighting control box allows a grower to turn off and on multiple lighting units throughout the day or night and for varying lengths of time. The lighting control box provides the ability for any grower to fully automate small indoor grow rooms, large sprawling facilities, greenhouses, or hydroponic growing spaces. The box runs designated and pre-set programs throughout the day, week, or month to generate the perfect atmospheric growing environment. It also offers safety features such as circuit breakers to protect against power overloads.
In addition, most lighting control boxes have a high-power relay to let the power cycle on and off. All components that the lighting control box needs to run the grow lights are housed in a plastic, steel, or metal enclosure that is waterproof and sealed to keep out humidity and protect against corrosion.
