insectPRO Dawn and dusk machine is a fully automated dawn and dusk machine or sunlight mimicking system that simulates day and night as a natural phenomenon. The unit is designed such a way that sun rise or sun set can be set at desired time. For example we can set the unit to dawn from zero light to full light from 10 to 120 min or 2hrs and similar is the case with dusk time where in from full light to zero light can be set at the same interval. Since the simulator works on realtime clock settings, in the event of power failure the system will still work on the settings. It does not require to reset or reenter the settings. Memory based RTC Real time clock has been set to make it function along withe the unit. One single unit can take load up to 1000w bulbs so several insectary rooms can be controlled using a single unit. This unit can also be used where ever the natural day and night simulation is required.
Recently there are several reports are emerging stating the importance of maintaining healthy insect or animal colonies with artificial lighting control systems.
