I have the single ramp timer and there's only 1 on/off cycle. It's still a great product IMO. But you shouldn't have to worry about splitting your light cycles to reduce algae because the Sat+ is dimmable. You can customize your output to your desire and save it in the memory (there's 4 memory slots).
Thanks for the info!! I agree that it sounds like a great product, but for now, I am going to get just the light and see how that works with my setup. When I have a better understanding of what I need, then I can get fancy timers.
