    Jandy Laminar

    Any Laminar experts on here? The things work great, but I'm pulling my hair out trying to get the the colors to sync up correctly and one of the two is only showing light at the top of the stream instead of all the way through. Its hooked up to an aqualink pda system. One button for pool lights which sync up and work correctly, one button for laminar lights which both show different colors.

    Any ideas how to get the lights synced up and how to get the laminar that isn't only showing color on the top to show all the way through the stream?

    Re: Jandy Laminar

    Well I adjusted one of the laminars so the light is good on it now, but still cannot figure out how to get both of them to show the same colors, I pick whatever color I want and both of them just show what ever color they feel like but they are changing colors. I tried from the panel instead of the pda and can't seem to figure out how to get them to reset back to the default color so they will be in sync.

    From the manual.

    To Operate the Light and Change Colors

    Turn the light ON. The fi rst time the light is turned on,
    the color sequence begins with the Alpine White. To
    change the color, turn the light OFF and then ON within
    three (3) seconds. Continue turning OFF and ON until
    the desired light color mode is reached. See Table 2 for
    the color mode sequence.
    Table 2. Jandy Laminar Jet with LED Lights
    Sequence
    Sequence Order Color Modes
    1 Alpine White
    2 Sky Blue
    3 Cobalt Blue
    4 Caribbean Blue
    5 Spring Green
    6 Emerald Green
    7 Emerald Rose
    8 Magenta
    9 Violet
    10 Slow Color Splash
    11 Fast Color Splash

    Here is what you need to synch the lights.

    NOTE When the light is turned OFF for more than
    seven (7) seconds, it will remain in the color set
    that is currently active. When the light is turned
    back ON, the light will be on the same color set.
    7.2 To Reset to the Beginning of the Color Sequence
    Turn the light OFF, wait four (4) to six (6) seconds, then
    turn ON, the light will return to the beginning of the
    color cycle (Alpine White).


    NOTE If an AquaLink® RS control system is being
    used the color set can be selected using the
    controller.

    NOTE To synchronize colors on multiple Jandy
    WaterColors light systems and Jandy Laminar
    Jets with LED Lights wired to separate
    switches, preform the above actions on all of the
    switches simultaneously. All Jandy WaterColors
    lights and Jandy laminar jet with LED lights will
    synchronize automatically if activated by the
    same switch. No other accessories are required.

    Re: Jandy Laminar

    Thank you, I've read the manual like you posted but these things aren't going back to white, I turned off the breaker for 5 seconds, turned it back on and still they are just switching colors randomly. The 2 laminars are on one relay, the 3 pool lights are on another relay and the 3 pool lights are in sync and work fine.

    Re: Jandy Laminar

    Okay, it seems that I actually have pentair laminars which seems pretty stupid when the rest of the system is jandy. Does anyone know the best way to make these work with the Aqualink PDA?

    Re: Jandy Laminar

    well that explains a lot then...not sure on the syncing set up but i would say that you may have to turn the AUX on and off to change the colour as the Aqualink does not have the light set up to suit Pentair, but here is their manual, http://www.pentairpool.com/pdfs/590033DOM.pdf

    Re: Jandy Laminar

    Does the iaqualink do it? Jandy tech said something about a rev 7 pda version that would control them

    Re: Jandy Laminar

    the latest PDA (rev7) has the function to assign the SAM/SAL lights cycle to the lights and this is a trademark of Pentair. not sure when they introduced this function but obviously after your rev version. The iAqualink will do the same, see this link. http://www.zodiacpoolsystems.com/~/m.../H0433600.ashx
