meanwell 48P can handle up to 4 of them and is dimable... however u need to DIY it and u cant use the flood light unless ur going to gut it for the LED only.
You pair with a PWM driver... (this is what i got) ~ 60 dollars
And u get your daylight...
how does that dimmer work?
It has preset memory options... 12 hour cycle... 8 hour cycle.. 6 hour cycle... and the intensity at which each cycle should hit.
When the timer goes on, the last preset cycle starts... in my case its the 12 hours... so 1 hour for it to get full intensity, and 1 hour to shut off after the cycle is complete, and the timer i have then turns the unit off until the next day where my cycle starts up again.
My only real grief is i spent way more $$$ then i should playing with LED's to get a final product... but i love playing with TOYS, so i dont really consider it a grief as it killed a lot of time which i wanted killed.
