Many common USB to serial adapters may not work properly.
Many Digital Ballasts / e-ballasts on the market emit extremely high levels of electrical interference. This interference can cause a problem with Growtronix data communications. Many digital ballasts work fine while others cause a problem. If the digital ballasts cause a problem shielded cable can be used to block the interference. Please note standard ballasts do not cause any problems.
The Growtronix system uses standard unshielded cat5 cables to connect all of the hardware. The system supports up to 150 feet of total cable length. Shielded cables can be used but the total cable length supported is reduced to 50 feet. If you need to go beyond this the Add-on Network Interface Module can be used to create another network which itself can have up to 100 feet of total cable length.
The Growtronix system is an advanced control system. If you are not comfortable working with computers, the Growtronix system probably isn't well suited for you.
