Can you let me know what part you are referring. Is it the LED bracket in the fixture? Also, do you have the Dimmable or the original fixture?Anyone have problem with the mounting bracket not matching up to the space? I recently purchased the light and 2 out of 4 bracket are slightly longer than the other 2.
We put the details together but have not found an easy way to upgrade and keep the costs inline, we think. Two dimmable ballast retail price point are around $130.00 without the additional parts.
With the upgrade we looked at possibly including the following parts to eliminate DIY requirements.
- New individual fixture endplates and new side mount plates, this is for the 0 - 10 volt wire control
- Adding the silicon sockets sets to the parts as the dimmable use an additional brown wire that the regular ballast does not use.
- A 0 -10 V wire to connect to both fixture and into a single 3.5mm stereo connector.
- and the Two additional ballast
To wire a new dimmable ballast if you are a DIYer it is a matter of removing the old ballast and splicing the brown wire of the new ballast into the yellow wire that connects the two yellow sockets together. Plus a connection to the 0 - 10 V control wire.
We have the ballast but honestly no one has asked me for it since the dimmable was released. If you would like to discuss more I would be glad to assist in upgrading the ballast to dimmable. I have help a few people in the last two years do it themselves.
Let me know.
Yes this is the LED bracket that I use to mount one of my hydra light one the new DX18.Can you let me know what part you are referring. Is it the LED bracket in the fixture? Also, do you have the Dimmable or the original fixture?
Let me know so we can help out.
They must have missed a few screws for that to happen. Looking at mine, I’m puzzled and doubt that that could even happen.I read a post where someone's hybrid fell into their tank because of the screw bolt where the wires get "locked" into by screws.
Is there anyway to provide an additional failsafe for that? Or am was that likely a user error?
Can you link said post? Trying to understand where you mean the failure point was, unless it's regarding the hanging kit nuts onto the T-slot bolt.
