To get the very best out of your LED lighting solution, in terms of brightness stability and control, the lights should be driven from a current source, not a nominal voltage supply. The Gardasoft controllers are current sources. The PP800 series LED lighting controller offers eight output channels which are independently controlled.
You have two options regarding communication; RS232 (PP860 range) or Ethernet (PP820 range). The standard versions offer a maximum pulse current of 20A. There are other options which reduce the maximum pulse current to either 2A or 5A. The lower maximum pulse current gives you much finer resolution control over the output current. There are also other optional controllers within the range (suffixed with a C) that give even greater control resolution on the output. Each channel can be individually configured to output continuously; or pulsed based on an external trigger signal or internal timer. Selected mode allows switching of the light based upon the state of an external trigger.
