    The control panel was designed for a particular customer that wanted a hassle free system.
    I will explain in detail:
    1. digital hour ( resettable ) hour meters to indicate when tubes need to be replaced.
    2. 3 x 120h backup timers for lights, that are connected to dimmable t8 & t5 electronic ballasts.
    3.1 x dosing timer connected to doser
    4. amp and volt meter to indicate undergravel heating cable power and amps.
    5. liquid level controller connected to pump
    6.lights on side indicate various actions, dosing, CO2 etc
    7. pH controller
    8. dosing unit
    9. CO2 unit with indicator window

    The control unit is very much hassle free, all one needs to do is check on the panel, which indicates what action is taking place. eg which lights connected to which timer is on, indication whether CO2 is being dosed,etc.
