atomated fluorescent dimming.
Hello to all.
First time posting on here.
My question is can anyone help me with information on automatically dimming fluorescent tubes.
I have a light bar for a large fish tank which recently blew its ballast so had to be cut open to replace the broken ballast.
The ballasts i found have the option of being dimmed using the DALI system.
I decided to add an extra ballast and 2 more tubes while i was inside it and added some small fans for cooling
Is there a way to slowly dim these ballasts to replicate dawn/dusk.
I think i will need to find some sort of DALI dimming controller and some sort of timer unit or control it with a PC
Despite searching Google for all of this i am still none the wiser as to how to do it
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Any help would be gratefully received.
