Saturn™ 5 – Digital Environmental
Controller with CO2 Timer
The Saturn™ 5 is a digitally based environmental controller featuring a short cycle
timer for CO2 enrichment. It utilizes a 15 foot remote sensor to operate your
temperature, humidity, CO2 system and nighttime gear. This controller gives you
the ability to set day and night temperature levels. The Saturn™ 5 has an LCD
display and color coded push buttons for easy programming. This device also
offers min/max data logging capabilities for temperature and humidity.
Operation Instructions
1. Securely mount your Saturn™ 5 in your grow area and away from any
moisture, spray, pesticides or other materials that could harm the unit.
2. Verify that when the Saturn™ 5’s is mounted in your grow room the
PHOTOCELL is exposed to your grow lights and not shaded or covered.
3. Ensure that all of the devices being connected to the controller are

120 Volt only and will not exceed the maximum amperage rating for
the Saturn™ 5.
Connect your gear (exhaust fan, CO2 controller, night circulation fan, dehumidifier, etc.) to the Saturn™ 5.
The sensor has a quick connect cord set to easily connect or move the
sensor. Secure the quick connect cord to the Saturn™ 5 by plugging it in
and securing the QD screw to the unit.
Place the sensor in an area with good air movement, preferably plant
height. Avoid placing the sensor in direct sunlight or under direct HID
lighting. NOTE: Do not place sensor anywhere it might get wet. SENSOR
IS NOT WATER PROOF.
Plug the power coble into a standard 120 Volt wall outlet.
Using the buttons, select the TEMP, HUMID & CO2 parameters to program
the Saturn™ 5.
The Saturn™ 5 should now activate and deactivate your equipment based
on the preferred settings you selected.
COOLING OUTPUT:
This outlet is intended to active an exhaust fan to ventilate the garden due to
high temperature conditions. Do not exceed 5 Amps when using this output.
CO2 OUTPUT:
This outlet is for a CO2 device and powers ON during the daytime period only. It
will deactivate when the ‘Cooling Output’ is activated. By achieving this, you are
not ventilating the CO2 as you’re enriching your grow area and wasting your CO2.
NIGHTTIME OUTPUT:
The outlet can be used for a variety of devices that only require power at night.
This outlet activates only during the nighttime period.
3
HUMIDITY OUTPUT:
This output is for use with a humidifier or dehumidifier. Do not exceed 5 Amps
when using this output.
Installation Example
PHOTOCELL SENSITIVITY:
By pressing and holding the ENTER/RESET and UP buttons for 3 seconds, you
can change the sensitivity of the photocell. The current photocell setting will
appear on the LCD. Press the DOWN button to decrease the sensitivity of the
photocell (will require more light to activate the photocell. Press the UP button
to increase the sensitivity of the photocell (will require less light to activate the
photocell).
Temperature &
Humidity Sensor
FAHRENHEIT - CELSIUS:
To change the temperature from °F to °C, press and hold the UP & DOWN
buttons for 2 to 3 seconds at the same time.
There are 15 buttons located on the front face plate of the unit that control all
functions. Pressing each button will display a function and/or current setting(s)
in the green LCD window. Some buttons are programmed to perform more
than one function.
The small green LED lights or status indicators located on the front panel will
light up to show the selected function when certain buttons are pushed.
UP – Press this button to increase setting.
DOWN – Press this button to decrease setting.
ENTER/RESET – Press button, hold for 3 seconds to enter new setting and to
reset the Min/Max range.
TEMPERATURE BUTTONS
DAYTIME SETTING – Press button to set day cooling set point. Press ENTER/
RESET to accept setting.
NIGHTTIME SETTING – Press button to set night cooling set point. Press ENTER/RESET to accept setting.
CO2
Regulator
TEMP DEADBAND – Press button to set the cooling deadband range. Press
ENTER/RESET to accept setting. This button is used to determine the number
of degrees above/below for when the cooling outputs will activate. Example:
If your cooling function is set at 85°F and the deadband is 3°F, the output will
activate your exhaust fan when the temperature is above 85°F and deactivate
your exhaust fan when the temperature is below 82°F.
HUMIDITY BUTTONS
HUMIDITY SETTING – Press button to set Day and Night Humidity settings.
HUMIDITY MODE - Press button to select humidification (rH Incr) function or
dehumidification (rH decr) function.

Troubleshooting Tips
1. The Saturn™ 5 has no power? Verify power source is providing 120 Volts
A/C. Reset the circuit breaker on the Saturn™ 5 by turning OFF the unit,
than turn ON.
2. What if the CO2 timer is not keeping the right time? The CR1220 3
Volt Lithium battery, located on the internal circuit board that is connected
to the inside of the front faceplate, may need to be replaced. The normal
lifespan of the batteries is approximately 5 years.
3. Why are the Error LED’s on the front lit? The sensor or connected device are malfunctioning. See ERROR LED’s section for more information.
4. Why is the display showing, ‘Err SEn’? The remote sensor is not connected or not communicating with the Saturn™ 5. Verify that the cable is
not compromised and that the remote sensor has power.
HUMID DEADBAND – Press button to set the humidity deadband setting. This
humidity dead band determines when the humidity output will function based
on how many percentage points above or below the set point that the humidity will be. Example: If the Saturn™ 5 is set to dehumidify and your deadband
is 5%rH, the output will activate your equipment at 50% and deactivate your
equipment at 45%.
CO2 BUTTONS
CO2 MODE – Press button to change the CO2 Mode from dAYlocK to
dAYFrEE. Select dAYlocK to disable the CO2 OUTPUT when the COOLING
OUTPUT is activated. Choose this mode when you are using exhaust fans to
cool your garden. Or you may select dAYFrEE to allow the CO2 OUTPUT
and COOLING OUTPUT to be activated at the same time. Use the dAYFrEE
mode in sealed room situations or when using an air conditioner to cool your
grow room.
CO2 ON TIME – Press this button to determine the amount of time that the CO2
OUTPUT will be activated to enrich your garden.
5. Does the humidity and temperature sensor need to be calibrated?
No. The humidity and temperature sensor is digital and there is no need for
calibration.
CO2 OFF TIME – Press this button to determine the amount of time that the
CO2 OUTPUT will be de-activated and NOT providing CO2 to your garden.
6. Why is my temperature is reading quite high? Verify that the sensor is
not in a location with direct exposure to intense light and that there is air
circulating freely around it.
NOTE: The CO2 ON TIME and CO2 OFF TIME can be used as a daytime recycle timer (dAYFrEE mode) to run a pump,etc. if you choose not to use CO2 in
your garden.

• TEMP & HUMIDITY LOCK = Press TEMP & HUMIDITY LOCK to display the
current setting. Use the UP and DOWN buttons to select the new setting.
Press ENTER/RESET to confirm the new setting.
1. To operate in the locked mode, select connECt and use an exhaust fan for
cooling or dehumidifying your garden. The exhaust fan will activate when
heat or humidity exceeds your pre-set levels and deactivate when both the
temperature and humidity are under your pre-set levels.
2. To operate in the split mode, select SPLit and use an exhaust fan for cooling and a dehumidifier to reduce your humidity level. The exhaust fan will
activate when the temperature exceeds your pre-set level and deactivate
when the temperature is under your pre-set level. The dehumidifier will
activate when the humidity exceeds your pre-set level and deactivate when
the humidity is under your pre-set level.
NOTE: Select split mode (SPLit) if using a exhaust fan or AC unit to cool and a
humidifier to increase humidity in your grow area. The cooling device will turn
ON when the temperature rises above the set point and the humidifier will turn
ON when the humidity drops below the set point.
ERROR LED’s
The Saturn™ 5 regularly monitors the temperature and humidity levels and
will alert the grower if there is an issue. If the Saturn™ 5 does not detect a
slight change in the temperature or humidity in your grow area in one hour, it
will deactivate the OUTPUT and the associated green LED will be blinking to
acknowledge the possible problem. This safety feature is critical to eliminate
‘runaway’ conditions that could result in crop damage or other serious issues.
If you have a blinking LED, stop and check that your equipment is running
properly and verify that the remote sensor has not been compromised.
ERROR LED RESET – To reset an ERROR LED, simply press the ENTER/RESET button.
