LightRail 4.20 has a 0-60 second adjustable time delay for promoting even growth from end to end. Plus, this grow light mover has the added feature of two to four feet per minute (.6m–1.2m) adjustable speed control. That feature covers a wide range of indoor grow lamp intensities and travel distances. LightRail 4.20 is great for customers who want that additional grow light system control. In addition, the travel length can be set anywhere along the Rail by placing the Switch Stop stoppers where you like.
Note: The LightRail 4.0 Motor of the LightRail 4.20 Kit has an adaptable transformer power cord and runs on 12 VDC so works in the US, Canada, Europe and all other countries. A proper country-specific plug end would be needed, and we have EU and UK plug ends available upon request.
Light Rail 4.20 is designed for inline travel. If you want to move two grow lamps side by side, you can simply run two Light Rail 3.5 Kits or two Light Rail 4.0 Kits parallel to each other. Or, Light Rail 5.0 is designed specifically for side by side travel.
Indoor plant light should always be maximized
LightRail 4.20, with DIY light mover for scalability, works for any indoor growing system. And, that’s end to end and row after row for that scalability. LightRail light movers should be considered an important part of the indoor grow kit, no matter the size of the operation. The indoor grow lights of our grow light system can absolutely be maximized. Grow equipment, especially indoor plant light, should always be maximized to achieve faster growth and much better yields. It’s all about grow lamp bravery, with each grow lamp now closer, stronger and more effective. And, LightRail is the most effective way to get the most out of our indoor plant light. It’s simply an integral part of our indoor grow setup.
30% more area, and with faster growth and significant yield increases
LightRail 4.20, the DIY light mover scalable for any space, should be considered an important part of any indoor grow kits. And, that’s no matter the size of the operation. It’s simply an integral part of any indoor growing system. Grow equipment, especially indoor plant light, should always be maximized. And, LightRail light movers are the most effective way to get the most out of our indoor grow setup. LightRail light movers get rid of the hot spots and the shadows. And, it lets us cover 30% more area, and that’s with faster growth and significant yield increases. We can now grow much better. And, we can do that by simply moving our indoor plant light with LightRail light movers.
Warranty, tech support, and custom space planning
LightRail light movers have a two-year manufacturer warranty and an in-house service department. And, LightRail light movers have available technical support and grow light system space planning services, including custom planning. And for safety features, LightRail light movers run at a safe 28-42 degrees C. That’s with a flame retardant electrical enclosure, as it should have, 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 light mover.
A closer grow light system = a more efficient use of the wattage/PAR available
So, we can now get rid of the shadow patterns that stationary grow lamps give us. Also with stationary indoor grow lights, light energy can be lost. And, that’s because it cannot diversify itself in order to allow our plants to absorb it at the optimum levels. LightRail light movers, however, shines the correct intensity of indoor grow light on the leaves for 40% of the photoperiod. And, that’s perfection. This allows the plants to reach optimum Leaf Area Index, the most important factor in increasing yield. Also, by moving our indoor grow lights, we can now safely get our grow light system closer. That’s a closer grow light system to our plants for a more efficient use of the wattage and PAR available.
It’s how the sun works
We know… Stationary grow light systems only shine light on the parts of the leaves that are directly beneath it. This can cause limited growth and even damage to the plant similar to sunburn. LightRail indoor grow light kits solve this problem by moving our grow light systems over the tops of plants. So, the leaves then get light at different angles. And, this is much more natural and it’s how the sun works.

LightRail 4.20 AdjustaDrive Kit Questions & Answers
How much weight will LightRail Carrry?
The answer to this is twofold. For LightRail 3.5 and 4.0 let’s first talk about the strength of the rail then we’ll talk about LightRail Drive Motor that moves your grow light. If only mounted by the mounting holes at the ends of the rail, the rail will begin to deflect when 35 lbs. (16kg) is in the middle of the rail. If all the rails mounting holes are used when mounting the rail first to a board, and then the board to the structure above your garden, it will easily handle 75 lbs.
Next, the LightRail 3.5 or 4.0 Drive Motor can easily move 75 lbs (34kg). However, more weight equals accelerated wear and tear mostly on the Trolley Wheels. LightRail's testing has shown that the Trolley Wheels on a LightRail 3.5 or 4.0 Drive Motor will last between 12 and 16 months moving a load of 35 pounds (16kg). Their Extreme Duty Trolley Wheels have a lifetime warranty at 60 pounds per set of four. Plus they have very low drag co-efficiency so they are the best choice for moving heavy or multiple reflectors
LightRail 5.0 will hold and move 100 lbs (45kgs) per cross arm (limit 3 cross arms) but again, needs to be mounted to a structure properly. Note: The greater the weight, the more frequently trolley wheels will need to be replaced. Trolley wheel kits are available for LightRail 3.5, 4.0 and the older 3.0, but for LightRail 5.0 needs LightRail must be contacted for any serviceable work and they make that easy and with a quick turnaround time.
