NOTICE: This is the older WINDOWS version of the Nanolux DTU and is no longer available. It has been replaced with the new and improved APP model. The APP model no longer requires the use of a computer to access the software and program the lighting settings. Instead, everything is accomplished using an APP designed for both iPhones and Android devices. In addition, there are now three different models of RTU's (the USB device that plugs into each individual Nanolux NCCS ballast). It is very important to use the correct RTU with each of your ballasts, otherwise they will not perform as expected. Please refer to the descriptions for the individual components for complete details, or contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
Absolutely the coolest way to control your Nanolux lighting systems - from 1 to 999 ballasts or fixtures - and completely wireless! Nanolux DE fixtures have quickly replaced our Gavita sales because the fixtures offer virtually the same performance, with a lower failure rate and a lower price. They also manufacture some of our most popular DE and SE ballasts. The other great thing about Nanolux is their Cloud Control System, which blows the doors off the Gavita EL1 and EL2 controllers and any other lighting controller on the market today.
With traditional grow lighting, you need to purchase controllers for every 4, 8 or 12 lights you have. These controllers are usually hard-wired by an electrician and plugged into a timer to control the light cycle. Not only does the NCCS do WAY MORE than a typical controller, it requires no hard wiring and is less expensive than a single 4-light controller, and controls up to 999 lights!
Growers who use Gavita lighting boast about their EL1 and EL2 controllers. The fact of the matter is they are difficult to program due to the simplistic user interface and offer limited features and functionality. Also, the wires. If you've ever been in a warehouse running Gavitas and EL controllers you know exactly what I'm talking about. Look up and you'll see a spaghetti factory of wires running from the controllers to the ballasts. The NCCS does everything the Gavita EL's do and much more at a lower price.
One of the great features of the NCCS is the two-stage high temp shutoff feature. Here's an example of what it can do. Say the temperature in the room gets above 85°F (or whatever temp you choose). The NCCS will automatically dim all the lights in order to reduce the temperature, while keeping the lights on. Now let's say the room continues to rise to 90°F (or whatever temp you choose), even after dimming the lights, maybe due to an air conditioner malfunction. The NCCS will then turn the lights off and keep them off until the temperature falls below the setpoint you configured. If you purchased a standalone high-temp shutoff device it would cost almost as much as the NCCS DTU does, and you very well may need multiple units, and they still wouldn't give you the two stage functionality the NCCS DTU does.
The Nanolux Cloud Control System was designed and engineered to provide a complete solution for the control of the lighting and environmental controls of a grow room. The NCCS system allows for precision control of all devices in a grow room through its simple and intuitive computer software program.
At the heart of the NCCS is a free software program which allows you to specify all of the parameters of your lighting and environmental control settings in your room. The program is then downloaded from your computer to the DTU (data transfer unit). The DTU is the brain of the system and communicates and controls all of the selected functions in the grow room through wireless modem communication. The DTU controls lighting ballasts and environmental control devices by communicating wire/essly with individual RTU (remote terminal unit) USB devices. The NCCS system currently allows for precision control of your lighting system with dimming, multiple lighting areas, high-temperature dimming features along with fan control. The NCCS will be adding C02 functions, humidity and temperature control, pH and nutrient control, pump control and remote camera features in the near future.

The RTU (sold separately) is the data transfer communication device that is installed on the Nanolux Ballasts which allows them to communicate with the DTU. They receive information from the DTU communicating when to dim and turn on and off. They also send data back to the DTU on the status of the ballast. One RTU is required for each ballast you would like to control.
