Read Article

Upgrading the LX face panel with the DX version will allow you to have all the great features of the DX transformer in just a view simple few steps.

New features include:

  • Astronomical Timing – designed to graphically represent a DX controller’s location on a map for accurate sunrise and sunset times based on the current date, time zone, and longitude/latitude settings.
  • Event-based programming – Seven customizable programs.  Each program includes days of the week and four individual lighting events
  • Timed Offsets (optional) – Timed offsets (+/-) can be added to any program event.  Offsets are in 15-minute increments.
  • Language - select your desired language.  English, French and Spanish.
  • Manual operation – Automatically activate your lights for one hour.  Increase run time in 15-minute increments if additional time is required.
  • Backup - function saves all user-entered information, including programs and setup data.
  • Disable function - completely shuts down all lighting events in the MANUAL and PROGRAM modes regardless of time or status, indefinitely.
  • Firmware - updates are occasionally released for the DX to add features or enhance functionality.
