Only upgrade is toss it in the trash. Eventually it will lock up and no longer work and Vertex is bankrupt and out of business.

Unless you have the new one, which only about a handful went out, you are wasting your time. The powerbar hardware was faulty and the reason for the complete redesign, but good luck !! Personally I think you’d be better served saving yourself time and aggravation and just toss it out.

Or maybe just turn the powerbar into a surge protector.

Wondering if someone can help me put a number to an Illumina sr200 I'm looking to sell. It's 72" long, 3 pads seem to have a diode that is not firing (hard to tell because the light is blinding). Replaced clock battery and plexiglass splash shield. Everything works and unit has been cleaned top to bottom (fans and fan raceway etc...). Is $600 too much/little??? Tore tank down otherwise I wouldn't sell.

Brought some life back to my good old trusted illumina fixture. Mounted 2 Orphek OR3 UV/Violet LED bars. My SR260 has just the original pads, never upgraded.

I'm sure it can be replaced by a new unit from Mean Well.
