I'm considering going to all ghl, I have a stand alone doser, and am considering buying a new 3.1 from the store. I have a diy led system that needs 5v pwm to dim. I think that I would need the breakout board to be able to make it work,not sure though. I was also thinking about the optical sensor for my ato. Any reason why this won't work for me?

I do not see why you wouldn’t be able to. The 3.1 has 2 optical ports and each of their systems are built for backwards compatibility. On the GHL USA site they have had the 3.1 on sale for awhile in different size sets.
Look at the information on led driver, should help how it should be connected.
What pumps are you using? Some models of pumps can also be controlled via 0-10v as well.

Will also tag @Ditto

The driver is a blue acro, which takes 3-5v pwm for dimming, so I'm pretty sure that I need the extra board. Though I don't know if it is only for dimming, it looks like it sends power also, but I don't know. I do have a DC return pump but I don't think that I care about controlling it other than just off.

For varios pump control, you need:
  • Varios pump control cable, sourced from manufacturer. Apex cable is OK.
  • GHL S & L Breakout box accessory
The RJ45 end of the control cable is cut and installed onto the breakout box. The breakout box is then connected to one of the 1-10V ports on the ProfiLux.

If you're on our mailing list, you'll be one of the first to know about upcoming sales. :)
