Smart Power Controller (professional)


The Light Counter system is a specialist light measurement and control system designed for photographers and printers who use ultraviolet-based processes such as platinum/palladium, cyanotype, and carbon.

The smart power controller is connected between the mains supply and the light source. It switches on the supply to the light source when the exposure is started, and switches it off again when the exposure is completed (or paused). It uses standard C13 and C14 “kettle” style connectors for mains electricity (cables not included).

This device is rated for a 10A load, which is suitable for most installations. (The older 5A “standard” version is no longer available.) If your light unit draws more than 10 amps, especially if it is an LED system, please read the following blog post: Power Controllers and LED Light Systems.

What’s in the box:

  • Power Controller
  • Control Cable (connects to the light integrator)

This device requires a light integrator: LC4 light integrator.
