Lumatek E-Ballast have increased efficacy over magnetic ballasts. They lose fewer watts from the power supply to the lamp. The high frequency output results in low power loss at the cathodes in addition to better overall power management. Up to 30% more lumens output than some old style magnetic ballasts... More light equals more yield.We urge you to test this yourself with a good quality light meter. Be sure to also check how much power the ballast is using with an ammeter as many so called 600w magnetic ballasts now draw up to 750w as standard to try to keep up with Lumatek's lumen output. More lumens generated per watt of electricity consumed.
Excellent for Pharmaceutical-agriculture, laboratories and other uses where precise regularized output is essential. T reaches full brightness in under one minute; magnetic ballasts typically take about twenty minutes. No noise or vibration of any kind.
Lumatek 600watt E-Ballast weighs 3.0 kilos compared to almost 10 kilos for magnetic ballasts. Less heat generated by the E-Ballasts makes temperature control easier and allows cooler running of the environment.
Lumatek E-Ballasts cuts off when a short is detected; for ultimate safety. Lumatek E-Ballasts output loss over time, with the correct lamp, is dramatically less than with magnetic ballasts. Lumatek E-Ballasts can light both HPS and MH bulbs (excluding the 750w which is HPS only). Lumatek launch their new range of horticultural HID grow lamps.
Tuned to the ultra-high operating frequency of the Lumatek e-ballasts, the lamp's components have been reinforced making them much more robust and therefore a long life grow-lighting solution delivering a high level of Photosynthetic Active Radiation to promote healthy plant growth. These lamps have strengthened seals and a reinforced arc frame to ensure that they will provide long lasting performance with stable lumen output. This is a large umbrella shaped reflector with vertical lamp fitting.
It comes flat packed ready for self assembly by the customer. Nuts and bolts are provided. Popular reflector suitable for CFLs HPS Metal Halids from 125watt upto 1000 watts.
