Glitchy Single Ramp Timer
i know im not the only one with the strobeing issue because iv read multiple threads with no one from current answering them.
now let me start by saying i have a 48" current SAT+ over a non planted tank with a single ramp timer (was going to wait for the dual, glad i didnt after reading the misleading ramp pro thread). the fish i keep are skittish and do not like bright lights so i run my SAT+ at about 50% brightness. i dont screw around with any of the corny lightning/cloud settings and i just leave it on the 50% output that me and my fish like.
now im not awake to catch the ramp up/ramp down all the time but the first night i set up my single ramp timer pro during the ramp down my lights were strobeing really bad (i think the dimmer the leds are being ran the more strobeing) and my fish and my wife were all freaking out. the couple mornings that i caught the ramp up (about 10 min into it) i looked at the tank and it had automatically set its self to a lightning storm this is happened twice. i didnt let the ramp up finish before manually setting it my preferred setting. after the ramp up was complete it may have just set itself into the mode that was last used, not sure. but like i said i usually wake up after the ramp up is complete and the light is just the way i left it the night before.
do you guys even do quality control before the products leave your warehouse? i would just send this junk back but living in Canada it is just not worth it.
