The C.A.P. MLC-8X, MLC-8XT and MLC-8DX Master Lighting Controllers are the best devices for controlling up to eight 1000 watt HID lights from one time-clock or controller.
You run 40 amp, 240 volt power into the MLC-8, and all of the outlets are controlled by one 120 volt trigger cable. You can plug the trigger cable into a standard 24 hour timer, environmental controller or one of the C.A.P. HLC series of garden and lighting protection devices.
The MLC-8X, MLC-8XT and MLC-8DX have eight 120/240 volt style outlets which allows for running your ballasts at 120/240 volts without having to change out your ballast power cords. The MLC-8XT has an integrated timer that allows you to control your MLC with the built-in time clock. The MLC-8DX has dual trigger cables to split 2 series of 4 lights.
The MLC-8X’s are rated for 40 amps @ 120/240 volts. Includes a 5-year manufacturer’s no hassle warranty. Made in the USA.
Although these Master Lighting Controllers can be wired for 120v operation and used in conjunction with 120v ballasts, this is NOT an ideal combination and reduces the number of ballasts that can be used.
