Overview

LightRail 5.0 is more than capable of moving 2 or 3 indoor grow lights side by side

From its “triple duty” extruded aluminum track, “wide and stable” carriage with “steel-on-steel” carrier bearings to the high torque 4 RPM instrument grade drive motor with ball bearing output shaft and “sure grip” dual drive design, it is more than capable of moving 2 or 3 lights side by side or fore and aft per crossbar and as many as 9 lights (or six lights to accommodate larger hoods) with the available add on products. It comes with LR5 Drive Motor, crossbar, instructions, mounting hardware and a 2 section 8 foot rail so it’s long enough and ready for an extra Add-a-Bar Kit.

The LightRail 5.0 grow light moving system can move multiple crossbars with each crossbar allowing indoor grow lights to travel side by side, and this indoor growers kit has a 0 to 60-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.

The LightRail 5.0 Kit comes with a LightRail 5.0 Drive Motor, one crossbar with width span adjustable settings of 81”, 87” or 93”, 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 up to 100 lbs per crossbar, 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 5.0 has a 0-60 second time delay for the ends of each run, and the travel length can be set anywhere along the Rail by placing the Switch Stop stoppers where you like.

Note: For heavier grow lights that might exceed 100 lbs per crossbar, consider the very capable LightRail 4.20 Kit, where each indoor grow light has its own support point with Extreme Duty Trolley Wheels pre-installed.

Electrical Note: LightRail 5.0 runs on 120 Volt so works in the US and Canada, but is not compatible to European 220 Volt electrical. In that case, LightRail 4.0 is the light mover of choice in that it has an adaptable transformer power cord and runs on 12 VDC so works in both the US and in Europe. A proper country-specific plug end would be needed, and we have EU and UK plug ends available upon request.

Relevant information about indoor grow lights with light mover

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 5.0

LightRail grow equipment kits shine the correct intensity of light on the plant 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.
