This one says it is for quantum led grow lights. Pretty inexpensive. Think this would work, @CrashMagnet?

Probably, yes. Might be problematic getting the correct connectors attached so it will plug in. And will it void the warranty?

I'm also 100% certain the board has a 10V reference that could be used with a simple potentiometer. The reference is a fundemental requirement of this kind of control setup. That a simple pot (knob) dimmer is not provided as standard is pretty screwed up IMO.

I considerately told them I didn't get one and thought when I saw it in the directions I figured it was an option...I won't need one in a month or so when I move into the new digs...I love the light, makes for huge flowers but don't let them get close...their lack of concern and reply is what pisses me off...I don't go silently into the night... ;)

I looked at the 4 corners of the earth looking for their number, nothing...
Iirc, they are a division of an English outfit called Lumitek, or some thing like that. Photontek is the US Version.

Did you buy it from a distributor? Or direct?
Some info about them in this review

Excuse me Ma'am Just one more thing
The X 600w PRO comes standard with a remote dimmer switch. There is an optional “Photontek Digital Lighting Controller” that is sold separately. It has some innovative features like functions for “sunrise” and “sunset” and it will even dim the lights if the temperatures in the grow space get too hot. If you have a large grow, several fixtures can be daisy chained and controlled by a single dimmer or controller.

after dropping 1K for the light I'll be damned if I burn it out with an aftermarket controller...within a month I'll take down the tents to fire up the new digs...I can keep the light at 11' plus so needing the dimmer wont be an issue...I'm fuming about the shiit customer service I got...
I don't blame you in the least. A grand up in smoke would dead piss me off.
@Hippie420 says he does a sunrise/sunset thing with T5’s I think.
Nope. T8's. I'm too cheap to buy T5's. Menard's had the fixtures on sale, and the bulbs are cheap. Not a heck of a lot of lumens lost, either, for the money.
