Reefkeeper ALC with Steve's LED retrofit and Lunar Pods By Mark on 11/6/13
Mark would recommend this product to a friend
I love the ability to mimic sunrises, sunsets and random cloudy situations and with the Lunar Pod it even follows the lunar phases and intensity.
I had to buy a small inexpensive Steve's LED controller to allow the ALC to control my lights but it was easy to setup once I connected the wiring CORRECTLY. Initially my lights were not working but I found I had wired them incorrectly.
I set mine up to turn on the lights slowly in the morning before I wake up then turn down in the afternoon for a couple hours to a very low intensity. Then I can have the lights on longer in the evening to enjoy the tank longer without having the negative affects of having the lights on too much during the day.

Easy solution for 0~10v dimming By pecan2phat on 5/13/13

I bought this module along with an RKL to automate sunrise and sunset with my DIY LEDs on my RSM 250 and it works like a charm. Only caveat is that all these products do not come with any type of fully descriptive instructions so go to the website and download the full manual for both the RKL and ALC.
Great for DIY systems. By Kristofer on 12/11/12

I am using this with a semi-DIY LED retrofit of a 14g Biocube. With the two 0 to 10VDC ports, I am able to control both the whites and blues of my fixture individually. For the programming, go to the Digital Aquatics website and check out their support forums. There you will find how to do the correct programming for time and ramp up time for the dimming.
A DIY LED system must have. By Jeff on 8/27/12
Jeff would recommend this product to a friend
This is an excellent product and a great addition to my Reef Keeper system. I have this running my DIY LED system on a 180 reef system. Once programed through the my reef program I can actually mimic a sunrise, high noon, and sunset configuration. The corals love it.
If you have built your own DIY LED system and want to use a DA controller. This is a must have for your system. Program it and enjoy it.
AI SOL with the DA ALC By Tom on 7/7/12
Tom wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
REALLY? If you purchase the aquatics illumination fixture to work the the DA ALC be prepared to "cut off one end of the AI data cord and SPLICE it to the cord of the DA ALC cord" and with no instructions how to do so. I have spent almost $800.00 on a system that I will have to splice together like some back alley car repair shop. It just does not sound look a good connection especially with saltwater!

I love my ALCs By Harry on 2/26/11

I actually run two of these since I have 4 dimable T5 ballast. By using the ALC module I have a nice daylight curve that mimics the natural rising and setting of the sun. It is very interesting to watch the corals and fish change behavior in the varying lighting. I really love my ALCs
