Leveling up your necromancy?!

I haven't personally tried it beyond a 48" beamswork but the s2pro claims to be able to handle 36v 100W, does 8 settings for the timer, and ramping. Also remembers the time through power outages. They can be found for about 12$ sometimes on aliexpress or fleabay. They're more expensive on amazon.

This LED Timer works with most aquarium led lights which are 0 - 36V DC using a standard 5.5 x 2.1 mm or 5.5 x 2.5 mm DC plug.

It states in the instructions it loses the current time if it loses power, and also to not hook it up to over 30v or 4a which is interesting since the amazon listing says most lights 0-36v. It's nice that it comes with the 2.5mm adapters though.

NOTE: The timer has a internal memory which will store your settings except current time during a power outage.
At least it keeps it' programming.. so only 1 day out of sych till you reset the clock..

The most fail safe way:


Follow this EXCEPT substitute this for the "driver"

2 Pieces DC 5V-36V Large Power Mosfet MOS FET Trigger Switch Driver Module
Specification:

- Operating VoltageC 5V-36V
- Trigger Signal Source: digital high/low level (DC 3.3-20V),can connect with MCU IO port, PLC interface, DC power etc; can connect with PWM signal; support signal frequency 0--20KHz.
- Output Power: DC 5v-36v, room temperature sustained current 15A, power 400W! Auxiliary cooling conditions, the maximum current can be up to 30A.
- Operating Temperature: -40~85 Celsius
Found most timers use the same principal..Low voltage logic circuit (5V PWM to MOSFET gate 500hZ or so..)cycling an NPN Mosfet "relay".
As to pre-built.. I'll check around. Pretty sure there are some China-direct w/ higher voltage specs..

Err.. Why are we talking > 24V anyways???
