The Hydro-X Pro is the top of the range Trolmaster controller. With more features and capabilities, the Hydro-X Pro is highly regarded as the best modular and fully customizable environmental controller on the market.
The Hydro-X Pro remains easy to install and can expand to up to 50 sensors and up to 50 separate control modules. The Hydro-X Pro is backwards compatible with all current Hydro-X control / device modules and allows for almost unlimited control options.
With a 25cm touch-screen and web-based software, the Hydro-X Pro provides easy access and more advanced remote control. It has the ability to store and share settings between multiple devices, so that user-defined programs & settings can be saved and shared with multiple Hydro-X Pro units with ease. A personalized screensaver page can be uploaded through a USB port.
Each of the 4 variables (Temperature, Humidity, CO2, Light) can be controlled independently, so that you can either closely simulate natural outdoor conditions, or simply allow complete customization of the environment to your specific needs.
Information is displayed on an easy-to-read and construct “graph” that allows the user to have 100% control of their environment. Another powerful feature of the Hydro-X Pro is the built-in calendar and calendar presets that allows the user to schedule an entire crop’s “recipe” within the Hydro-X Pro. All settings can be specified by the user as they “build” their multi-week crop schedules. Reminders can also be programmed to ensure critical tasks are not forgotten.

1x MBS-Pro 4-in-1 Sensor
1x Mounting Plate
1x RJ12 Cable Set
The 4-in-1 MBS-Pro sensor will measure air temperature, humidity, CO2 (ppm) and has a photocell to detect Day or Night operation, making it a perfect all-in-one environmental sensor. The sensor will detect the environmental parameters then send the collected data back to the Hydro-X Pro. By using different modules connected to the Hydro-X Pro system, the controller will then send signals to the modules and control those devices based on the environmental readings provided by the 4-in-1 sensor.
The temperature control devices, like the ARS-1 will control mini-split AC, while the TS-2 can control HVAC system etc.
Humidity can be regulated with the modules by controlling the humidity control devices. For example, the HS-1 can control dehumidifiers, TSH-1 can control fans etc.
CO2 level can be regulated with the modules by controlling the CO2 control devices. For example, the DSC-1 can control CO2 tank regulators and CO2 generators etc.
The Hydro-X Pro can control almost all horticultural lighting systems ( LED / HID ) in the market using one of Trolmaster’ s LMA series of lighting adapters. Two separate lighting control channels allow users to control two different lighting systems with separate setpoints. The PAR sensor can be incorporated into the Hydro-X Pro system to provide a measurement of “PAR” (Photosynthetically Active Radiation ). After entering the value of the desired amount of PPFD to the Hydro-X Pro, the PPFD sensor will automatically increase or decrease the output level of the supplemental lighting systems to continuously maintain the exact lighting level (in terms of PPFD) selected.
There are other modules that can be used to control devices in different circumstances in accordance with user’ s need. For instance, devices like fans or pumps can be controlled based on time rather than Temperature, Humidity, and CO2 with the Timer Control module the DSP-1. The DCC-1, DSV-1 and the 4RS-1 Expander Station offer dual condition control, low voltage control and multiple device control respectively.
These 3 sensors: MBS-SD, WD-2, WCS-1, are used to detect smoke, water leakage and abnormal moisture level of medium. Warning alerts will be sent to users on the TrolMaster App when abnormal conditions are detected to alert them about potential problems before things get out of hand.
