Gavita ECM1

For our EL2 controllers we developed an External Contactor Module, the ECM1. As the Master Controller works on a low voltage output, it is not capable of switching auxiliary equipment. With the ECM1 you can extend the functionality of your EL2 controller to switch auxiliary equipment, such as heaters, dehumidifiers and CO2 equipment during the lights on or lights off cycle, according to the controller set lighting hours.  more/less

The Gavita Master controller EL2 has two outputs for optional External Contactor Modules (ECMs). These industry grade contactor units can switch a load up to 15 amps of accessories during either lights on or lights off period. As the ECMs are steered by a low voltage signal you can even locate them close to the accessories themselves, enabling easy installation and optimal flexibility. The come with localized male and female plugs so that installing auxiliary equipment is just a matter of plug and play.

Features & Benefits

  • Plug and play installation

    Mount it right next to the equipment you want to control, and just plug in the (safe, low voltage) control wire in the ECM and the controller.

  • Status signaling

    Never guess anymore if a contactor is switched on or off: the LED on the ECM clearly shows the status of the contactor.

  • Requires no external power

    The contactor in the ECM is activated by the power of the controller. No power supply is required, just one signal wire to the controller.

  • Switches auxiliary equipment up to 15A

    Safely switch your auxiliary equipment on and off based on light cycle, using a high quality European contactor.

  • Available in local plug versions

    The ECM1 is available with EU, US (120 and 240), EU, UK, AUS, IT and other plugs.

Typical applications for 750W lamps are vegetative rooms, combinations with plasma lighting, smaller rooms with lower intensity and rooms with a limited distance to the crop. 
Gavita was the first to introduce a 750W double ended lamp and fixture for horticulture, increasing the efficiency of single ended 750W fixtures by about 20-30%. They are now the standard in horticultural lighting for 750W systems. 
Gavita pioneered the use of double ended lamps in this industry. These professional lamps offer you the highest output and light maintenance in the market today. Backed by decades of horticultural experience, Gavita recommends these lamps for use in her professional fixtures in horticulture. 
Our DE lamps output 15-35% more PAR light than traditional single ended lamps and have a much better light maintenance, which means that you only have to change your lamps once a year. 
The double ended construction enables the arc tube to be in stable the center of your reflector, for optimal optical placement. No more sagging heavy lamps in your reflector that destroy the throw of your fixture.  The absence of a frame wire further increases the output and uniformity. 
The  narrow lamp reduces interference with reflected light from the reflector. It is nitrogen filled instead of vacuum, allowing the arc tube to be smaller while maintaining the correct arc tube temperature. You should not use our double ended lamps in direct air cooled fixtures, as they cool under the optimal temperature, reducing the output considerable. 
The smaller arc tube results in a higher light density than single ended lamps, improving the penetration of your crop.
Higher light output results in lower infra-red output, as energy in a lamp is converted to light and heat: The more light, the less heat is generated.

Always make sure that you run lamps at 100% for at least 100 hours to stabilize the lamps, before you dim or boost the lamps.
