The Lunar Simulator Module (LSM) allows the AquaController to control and vary the intensity to a 2 to 5 LED module for a realistic moon cycle simulation. The moonrise and set times follow the true lunar cycle. High intensity LEDs with a wide angle lense (100+ degrees) provide the best possible coverage. The AquaController dims the LEDs in phase with the true lunar cycle. Up to 240 AquaBus modules can be added to the Apex system. Plug and Play unit is automatically recognized when installed into the system. Two AquaBus connectors for flexible expansion via AquaBus. LED Status Indicator, upgradeable firmware and compatible with all Apex systems. Includes with 3' AquaBus cable. Avaiable with 2, 3, 4 or 5 LEDs for $79.95 to $109.95.
