Autopilot's eight outlets commercial light controller is designed to safely control today's digital ballasts. This High Power HID environment controller operates multiple HID or fluorescent light fixtures from a single controller or timer device. The commercial eight light controller features an integrated delay to "soft start" each bank of 4 lights (5 min delay between banks), reducing the startup load. External breakers allow the user to easily shut down power to the attached equipment. The commercial light controller is made from steel and built to last.
