Hi, I have a question about your single ramp timer:

Is it able to do 2 on/off cycles (a split photoperiod) per 24 hours?

My fluorescent fixture is starting to go on the fritz, so it's time to buy something new. I really like the looks of your Sat+, but I suspect it puts out too much light for my low-light tank. With the fluorescent (also a fixture that is too high of light to run my tank as low-light), the split photoperiod did wonders at controlling algae, and I would love to continue to do that with the Sat+... if I can. Another question, would the split photoperiod reduce the life of the LED?
