LightRail 4.0 AdjustaDrive will move any weighted indoor grow light.
The all new LightRail 4.0 AdjustaDrive is the newest linear light mover available from Gualala Robotics Inc. With both a zero to 60 second adjustable time delay for promoting even growth from end to end and a two to four feet per minute adjustable speed that covers a wide range of lamp intensities and travel distances, the all new LightRail 4 AdjustaDrive from Gualala Robotics, Inc. is designed and manufactured in the USA and is the ultimate in light mover control. Compatible with all LightRail 3.5 rails and accessory items .
LightRail 4.0 AdjustaDrive Kit comes complete with a variable speed LightRail Motor and a two-piece 2 meter (6’6”) Rail , installation hardware and instruction. LightRail 4.0 AdjustaDrive indoor grow systems can also be purchased as the Motor only with installation hardware and instructions – perfect for anyone who already has a Rail or who wants to purchase their Rail separately. With both a 0 to 60 second adjustable time delay for promoting even indoor plant growth from end to end plus the added feature of two to four feet per minute (.6m – 1.2m) adjustable speed control that covers a wide range of grow lamp intensities and travel distances, LightRail 4.0 AdjustaDrive is great for customers who want that additional control.

LightRail 4.0 AdjustaDrive will move any weighted indoor grow light. And, for those with heavier weights, we have Extreme Duty Trolley Wheels available as an upgrade option that are very easy to install. Then, you have the very capable LightRail Motor as well as the perfect trolley wheels for heavier grow lights. Those upgraded wheels are also recommended when multiple grow lights are moved with one Motor, using Add A Lamp Kits.
Solid State Advanced Controls fully integrated digital circuitry designed with a built in 0 to 60 second adjustable time delay helping to promote even plant growth end to end.
Note: Light Rail 4.0 has an adaptable transformer power cord and works with 100 volts to 240 volts, so works in all countries for electrical compatibility.
For specialty grow lights with a long wingspan including light bars, we recommend using an Auxiliary Trolley to hold the other end of the grow light onto the Rail, or using LightRail 5.0 .
Indoor plant light should always be maximized
LightRail is the single best way to maximize your light set up. Solidly made in the USA since 1986, LightRail 4.0 is the light mover of choice with an instrument grade drive motor that runs on only 9 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 all the electrical certifications (C CSA US and CE) and flammability ratings (UL 5 VB) and is RoHS compliant. LightRail has a two year 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.
Stationary lighting 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 solves this problem by moving 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 system. With stationary light, 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 shines 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 yield. Also, by moving your light, you can now safely get your light closer to your plants for a more efficient use of the wattage available.
We no longer have hot spots and we no longer have shadows
So, the LightRail light mover grow light system affects light as it relates to distance this way. When the indoor grow lights are moved along the light mover rail, we no longer have hot spots. And conversely, we also no longer have shadow patterns. And, in a greenhouse, LightRail light movers also get rid of grow light shadows where the indoor grow lights block natural sunlight. So, without the fear of hot spots and zoned light overkill, we can now get our grow lamps closer. This is an example of Inverse Square Law. This principle states that the farther away an object is from a light source, the effect of that light is geometrically diminished. So, a grow light system that is up close is powerful and effective. And at 5’ away, as another example, that same grow lamp is only 50% as powerful. And remember, it’s geometrically reducing, so at 4’ away, we are still doing poorly and fast approaching that 50% figure.
