wtc a1 downunder
« on: September 05, 2015, 06:24:35 AM »

morning chaps
Can any tell me if a Engel ballast switch UNI will work with a a1 downunder WTC ie to operate ballast pump and solenoid valve as a fail safe , this to work alongside Engel SPC2 or LR3 pitch controller . I did look at the sub driver ADF2 combined pitch and failsafe but postage was nearly as much as the item which has put me off . Or does any one have any better thoughts on the matter.
All the best Webbo

A Corona RX will offer a programmable failsafe on all channels.
