Thank you for the detailed explanation. So based on the g4, how would you program the color spectrum (at what percentage)? I control it by using the apex which shows the following colors:
RB (not sure what blue this would be, but I know it is not royal blue)
Unfortunately, they don't have a warm white but I didn't see it under echotech's program either.
If having a warm light spectrum setting is important, I can try to manually change it but contact Apex about it.
warm is only a word.. would help I suppose..
Anyways I have no idea how the Apex "maps" to the Radion channels..
But their native channels are
1= cool white
3= warm white
turn on one channel at a time in the apex and write down what "color" it maps to, regardless of title..
So for a sunrise effect you can ramp up 2 (red) first for a period of time. shortly start ramping up 3 (ww) then start all 3 (1,4,5) til you hit a brightness you like..
suggest doing r,g,b to not hit over 30% (at high light peak time) but adjust colors to taste.. Cool white peak at 60% , ww peak at 30%
Reverse for dusk..
If you want moonlight try ch1 at 5%, 4 at 5%.. or lower.. maybe ad a smidge of blue.. Cyan white moonlight is kind of cool..
lots of toys and lots of possibilities,,
This is one of infinite choices btw..
your whites are your main photosynthetic channels (roughly 75% of output, think they are 5W CREES)..the colors are for tone and pop..and plants like them too..
