Plenum Box - For use with Opticlimates
Connect Ducting Easily to Your Opticlimate with a Plenum Box
The Plenum Box is a tough insulated case that can be installed at the back of your Opticlimate Pro 3 air conditioning system. Using the Plenum Box it is possible to place the Opticlimate outside the grow room, and doing this in conjunction with a 3 way valve - it can be used to split the Opticlimates air conditioning ability into to separate rooms. The Plenum Box comes with four perforated (pre-cut) holes just attached the corresponding size of flange to easily secure ducting wherever is required.

Which ducting do we recommend for opticlimates?
You're open to use any sort of ducting with Opticlimates, but we would recommend using combi-ducting, which is more sturdy than traditional aluminum ducting and better able to cope with humidity than acoustic ducting.
How to use the Plenum Box?
The Plenum Box easily hooks on to the back of your Opticlimate over the rectangular filter. Prior to attaching it to the Opticlimate, decide and cut the relevant holes out of the pre-perforated metal on the Plenum Box using wire cutters. Then, attach your flange (available separately) using Tek screws. After installing onto your Opticlimate, secure with duct tape. You're then able to attach your choice of ducting using a duct clip. This gives you the ability to have you Opticlimate outside of your grow room, but able to pull in the air from the growing space and effectively air condition.
If your looking to use your Opticlimate in two rooms you'll need a Opticlimate 3 Way Valve. This attaches to the front of your Opticlimate and diverts the air into 2 spaces. Although this is a great, low cost solution for maintaining temperature in 2 spaces using 1 Opticlimate, it does remove some of the functionality, such as pre-cool and dehumidify.
