Let me know how that goes. I've been trying to get a quote from nowirenuts and it seems he's not into it, too busy or I'm not big enough. I asked him for a quote on a 48 light setup, using 24 ballast on a flip and a PLC to manage veg in the same room as efficient as possible... never got a quote.
Thanks Biggs, Ive already been in contact with Dan at DXHYDRO/DXSOUND. He's very helpful and also quite a value compared with the other options. @GTDanny you turned me off to Olyver with the getting your post count up talk. Judging someone based on how many times they have posted on an internet site in beyond retarded and anyone who thinks that way is doing themselves a disservice. I reluctantly remind you that the vast majority of people who are successful at this would NEVER come on a site like this. If you need a custom controller hit up Dan at [email protected] very helpful and only a fraction more than it would cost you to do it yourself.
Wow, that guy is an idiot!!! What kind of a moron wires 120 volt receptacles at 240 volts!?!?! What happens when people use their 120 cords so they will fit the outlet and then burn up their ballasts!?!?! And using medical grade receptacles some how make up for this?
I spent some time a while back with this guy and he responded to every email, several design changes, etc. We wound up building our own simple system with contactors and timers. Not my decision, I felt kind of bad. Point is he was good to work with.REALLY, I would like you to refresh my memory. Perhaps you got a quote and couldn't afford it. I respond to every email I get.
I guess me. I wire my ballasts at 240 using 120 outlets. But my ballasts are kits or ballasts that I wired up and I know what my outlets are. Nobody is going to plug 120 items into them. 120 outlets can handle 240Wow, that guy is an idiot!!! What kind of a moron wires 120 volt receptacles at 240 volts!?!?! What happens when people use their 120 cords so they will fit the outlet and then burn up their ballasts!?!?! And using medical grade receptacles some how make up for this?
Receptacles are designed in, and UL tested & listed in certain configurations to limit improper connections. If this guy was having his equipment tested or listed, they would fail him.
Completely irresponsible. :confused0054:
I'll send you an e-mail with a reference to this thread.REALLY, I would like you to refresh my memory. Perhaps you got a quote and couldn't afford it. I respond to every email I get.
REALLY?? I mean REALLY? You lost me at this guy is an idiot. He obviously isn't, but you sure sound like onw.Wow, that guy is an idiot!!! What kind of a moron wires 120 volt receptacles at 240 volts!?!?! ...... blah blah blah ...
Completely irresponsible. :confused0054:
^ What he said. The reason I think Olyver's shit would work with my setup is because of the flexibility. Any fool can wire up a heater thermostat and a delay to a trigger... run some relays with TD-69's and a couple 20 AMP 220V wire sets to power and call it a power board... I built one with google helping me that has a hot start delay, a thermal shutdown protector and runs 12 lights for about $100. I've also bought MLC because I didn't feel like dealing with it and wanted a cleaner looking power board for a room built after the one I built the power board for. Here is one this fool (me) built ...what I saw at DXhydro was basic light controllers. Olyver seems to be more into advanced controllers using PLC's so you can do more advanced things.
Olyver seems to know his shit. Not that Dan does not. Just like anything shop around, buy from who you feel comfortable with in pricing and quality
If you are asking if I really, I mean really ( really, I mean really even if I don't use all caps) think someone is an idiot for intentionally connecting the wrong voltage to a receptacle AND (<---see how I REALLY, I mean REALLY emphasized AND right there?) marketed these as "professionally" built devices, than yes that's exactly what I mean. If I lost you at this guys an idiot I ' l l t r y a n d t y p e s l o w e r f o r y o u.REALLY?? I mean REALLY? You lost me at this guy is an idiot. He obviously isn't, but you sure sound like onw.
