Oh yes, I know that they can control LED
fixtures, just not sure (from your previous post) that you are understanding how it is done. Neither can control a TaoTronics (or same fixture by some other name) without modifying the fixture itself. The power is not controlled at the electrical outlet on any reef controller (that I know of). It is controlled via a signal from a dimming port "communicating" with the LED
driver. The ReefAngel does 0-10Vdc analog or PWM dimming from the two ports (not the outlets themselves) on the outlet box and can also do a 0-5Vdc PWM signal from the ATO HIGH port. It can also control the newer Radions via the RF expansion. To date, it can control Kessil, AI and Apollo lights with the purchase of a separate cable (or mod one yourself). Not saying it can't be done, but it will take a bit of electrical work on your part to make a TaoTronics fixture work on a ReefAngel.
The Apex also does not control directly from the outlets. You still need to have the dimmable drivers hooked up to the dimming ports.
