Hi,

I would like to confirm a point to avoid misunderstanding on my coralcare gen 2, regarding the acclimatization mode.

For example :
Intensity is set to 75%
Acclimatiazation is set to 0.2 for X days

Could you please confirm the light will start at 55% and go to 75% at the end of the acclimatization period ?

Thanks a lot,
Ben FL

Hey there!

I confirmed that the acclimatization is a multiplier, so in this case:

75 x .2 = 15

So you will start with a 20% reduction in intensity, making your starting intensity 60.

Hi,

Thanks for your input.

But I'm not sure this works as you described.

I put 0.2 in acclimatization factor, and the light is less powerfull than with for example 0.6 in acclimatization factor.

Although I agree the acclimatization factor is a multiplier.

My idea is below :
- Intensity at 75%
- Acclimatization factor = 0,2
Result : 75x0.2 = 15 so the Intensity will start at 15%

Can someone confirm ?

Thanks a lot
