LightRail 5.0 can move multiple crossbars with each crossbar allowing indoor grow lights to travel side by side, and this indoor growers kit has a zero to sixty second adjustable time delay for pausing the grow lamp at the end of each run. The time delay helps promote even indoor plant growth from end to end and allows for equal grow light-time for the entire run. From its “triple duty” extruded aluminum track, “wide and stable” carriage with “steel -on-steel” carrier bearings to the high torque 4rpm instrument grade drive motor with ball bearing output shaft and “sure grip” dual drive design, LightRail 5.0 is more than capable of moving 2 or 3 indoor grow lights side by side or fore and aft per cross bar. The LightRail 5.0 Kit comes with a LightRail 5.0 Drive Motor, one crossbar, instructions, mounting hardware and a 2 section 8’ Rail, so it’s long enough and ready for an extra Add-A-Bar Kit to purchase as a second crossbar. LightRail 5.0 will move any indoor grow light/ any hood, multiple sizes and weights and is a scalable DIY light mover grow equipment system that can move up to 9 lights (or 6 lights to accommodate larger reflectors) with a single Motor. LightRail is made for any indoor grow setup including indoor grow lighting systems, supplemental greenhouse lighting, four season indoor greenhouse with light, tent grows and commercial grower environments. LightRail, the scalable DIY light mover for any space, should be considered an important part of your indoor grow kits, and an integral part of any indoor grow lights. Grow equipment, especially indoor plant light, should always be maximized and LightRail is the most effective way to get the most out of your indoor grow lights and grow equipment.

Note: With LightRail 5.0, perfect balance is key and vent tubing can play havoc with that. We recommend that if you do have vented hoods, you use LightRail 3.5 or 4.0.

Relevant information about indoor grow lights with light movers…  With indoor or greenhouse lighting, whether it be LED grow lights, LEC grow lights, high pressure sodium (HPS) grow lights, metal halide (MH) grow lights, double ended grow lights, -any and all indoor gardening lighting, when stationary, only shines light on the parts of leaves that are directly beneath it, which can cause limited growth and even damage to the plant similar to sunburn. LightRail light movers solve this problem by moving the indoor grow lights over the tops of plants, so that the leaves get light at different angles, activating photosynthesis on parts of the plant that would not normally receive much light with a stationary indoor gardening system. With stationary indoor grow lights, light energy can also be lost because it cannot diversify itself in order to allow your plant to absorb it at the optimum levels. LightRail grow equipment kits shine the correct intensity of light on the leaves for 40% of the photoperiod. This allows the plant to reach optimum Leaf Area Index, the most important factor in increasing indoor gardening yield. Also, by moving your indoor grow light, you can now safely get your lamp kits closer to your plants for a more efficient use of the wattage available. LightRail is the single best way to maximize your indoor grow setup. Solidly made in the USA since 1986, LightRail 5.0, the scalable DIY light mover for any indoor grow space, is the light mover of choice with an instrument grade drive motor that runs on only 5.5 watts, digital control circuitry, heavy duty ball bearing carrier wheels and a self-clutch drive design with automatic traction control. Manufactured by Gualala Robotics, LightRail has important electrical certifications (C CSA US or CE) and flammability ratings (UL 5 VB) and is RoHS compliant. LightRail 5.0 has a limited lifetime manufacturer warranty, runs at a safe 28-42 degrees C with a flame retardant electrical enclosure, as it should be, while imitator light movers run as hot as 107 C (170 F) and their electrical enclosures are likely made of flammable plastic. Without quality, there is no value and if it does not say Gualala Robotics, it is not a LightRail. LightRail, the scalable DIY light mover for any grow space, should be considered an important part of your indoor grow kits, and an integral part of any indoor grow lights. Grow equipment, especially indoor plant light, should always be maximized and LightRail is the most effective way to get the most out of your indoor plant light and grow light kits.
