    We modified one of our older Archon controller wires to create a wire for the Profilux Mini we are using at the office.

    With the 3.5 male stereo cable the back section of the wire is ground, the middle and tip are the two 0 -10 V outputs. We then placed the wires in a phone jack connector with position 2 white wire (+), position 3 black (-) and position 5 red (+).

    Yes that is correct the HEP ballast dim to 2% at 0 V input. I have the power cord of the fixture also timed on one of the GHL controlled outlets.

    You can alternatively connect an EVG-AP-2F-HIC in between, so the lamp will be completely disconnected from the power line.

    Is DIY the only option? I have a kessil-to-apex cable I no longer need so I was planned on using that. Until I realized the yellow p4 ports are not the same. I have 2 (eventually 3) Aquatic Life DX18s... surely GHL or AI sell a compatible cable?

    You can still use that apex cable by cutting the RJ45-end and connecting the two wires to our Breakout box accessory. This accessory then connects directly to the 1-10V port on the ProfiLux.
