Nanolux Cloud Control NCCS Data Transfer Unit (DTU) - NEW/APP MODEL

Be the first to review this product

NOTICE: This is the newer APP version of the Nanolux DTU. 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.


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.

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 smart-phone app.

NCCS APP UPDATE

Nanolux is proud to introduce its new NCCS APP system. The new NCCS APP can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or the Apple APP Store.

Use the APP to control your grow room from anywhere in the world on your Smart Phone or Tablet. The first of its kind; the NCCS is an “all-in-one” application that will continually grow as your needs do. The NCCS windows software was released in 2014 for PCs to control light timing, dimming, and overheat protection. Originally operating on its own wireless cloud network, Nanolux has now created an APP for both an iPhone and Android. The APP is far more versatile and extensive compared to the original PC software release. The new APP will have the same lighting controls plus several new controls including: room temperature, humidity, and CO2 with the NCCS THC controller, and soon our pH/EC doser. Just like the lighting controls, the THC and pH controller will be wireless, and adjustable from the APP. With the APP, you can set the perfect growing parameters and have peace of mind knowing it’s all automated. No longer do you have to constantly walk through the grow room and take readings from several different controllers. Simply open your phone APP to monitor or adjust settings depending on your plants needs. This means less time wasted in the growing environment, which provides less of a chance of disrupting the controlled environment or introducing outside pathogens. This system will continue to expand as we introduce new controllers and monitors. Our next launch will include remote connectivity to Nanolux security cameras, environmental controllers and dosing controllers in the Spring of 2017. We look forward to bringing you the newest, most reliable environmental controllers on the market.

    A. No, you may access your NCCS system via Bluetooth within 30 feet of your DTU for FREE.
  9. Q. I have the original NCCS system with the ballasts that have “RTU” labeled on the RTU slot.  Will this work with the new DTU?
    A. Yes, however they require the new RTUC- The new RTU C-1 enables the Windows version to work on the new NCCS APP system.
  10. Q. I have new Nanolux APP only ballasts and the original Nanolux Windows based ballasts.  Will they work together?
    A. Yes these different units will work together using the new DTU APP.  The new Nanolux APP only ballasts require the new NCCS RTU APP and the Windows based ballasts require the new NCCS RTUC.
  11. Q. I have a mix of CMH fixtures, DERII ballasts, OG ballasts, DE 600×2 and DE fixtures complete. Will all of these work on the new NCCS APP system?
    A. Yes, as long as the proper RTU is selected and DTU APP is purchased. The new APP based fixtures require the new RTUAPP and the windows fixtures require the RTUC.
  12. Q. I want to view and monitor remotely but I am in the middle of a grow cycle.  Do I have to replace all the DTU’s and RTU’s at once?
    A. Yes, you must replace and reprogram the entire NCCS system.  All DTU’s and RTU’s must be replaced to give you Bluetooth and WIFI remote access to your NCCS system.
  13. Q. I was sent a replacement ballast that reads APP ONLY over the RTU slot.  Will this work with my existing DTU?
    A. No, the units with APP ONLY over the RTU slot will not work with the Windows based NCCS system.  Please submit an RMA and we will upgrade your entire system for FREE through 4-20-17.  Please include serial numbers of all DTU’s and RTU’s that need to be replaced.

WE ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH CUSTOMERS USING AVAST ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE AND HAVING THE NCCS SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD  BLOCKED BECAUSE IT IS EXECUTABLE. YOU WILL HAVE TO DISABLE YOUR AVAST SOFTWARE. HERE IS A LINK TO SOLVE THE AVAST PROBLEM: http://www.getavast.net/support/stop-blocking-a-program

 DTU

The DTU is the brain of the NCCS 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 wirelessly with individual RTU (remote terminal unit) USB devices.
