High performance with low power consumption: The astounding output with low operating costs make the 250W an interesting product for beginners or professional growers of light-sensitive crops. A ballast is crucial when operating grow lighting, such as HPS or metal halide lamps, in order to convert the power source so that it may be used by the lamp. Depending on the type of plant and the light cycle, ballasts are required for 8 to 24 hours per day, which is why you should avoid using less efficient products for this purpose. Conventional (non-electronic) ballasts waste a large proportion of the energy consumed as useless heat, experience a reduction in performance over time, and can even catch fire e.
Electronic ballasts control start phases and performance output via microprocessors, which improves the lamp performance and means that less energy is wasted as heat. Even in long-term operation, the Lumatek 250W will only become lukewarm and has an automatic interrupt mechanism for increased safety in case of a short or power surge. Thanks to the Super Lumen switch, the Lumatek 250W can increase the luminosity of HPS lamps by up to 10%.
The device also allows the use of metal halide lamps, however they can not be dimmed and must be operated at their respective output level! 250W MH = 250W setting on the ballast, or with the Super Lumen switch set to off. As the Lumatek 250W is delivered complete with fixed cable connectors each approx.
4m, you only need to connect the light fixtures before putting it into operation. Electronic ballast for 150W, 175W or 250W HPS or MH lamp. Voltage range: 175 to 275V.
No audible noise, no flicker. Environment temperature for full load operation: -25 to 50°C (-13 to 122°F). Enclosure temperature rise: (t) 25 °C (77 °F). Humidity: capable of operating in relative humidity of 0% to 90%, non-condensing. To light a 150W lamp; set control to 150W.To light a 175W lamp; set control to 175W or dim to 150W. To light a 250W lamp; set control to 250w and boost output by 10% by switching to'Super Lumens' or dim down to 175W or 150W. Lumatek 400W Dimmable ballasts feature dimmable stable light output which are ideal for pharmaceutical agriculture, laboratories and other uses where precise regulated output is essential. These have a reaaly fast start up and they reach full brightness in under one minute making them a lot faster than magnetic ballasts. Due to the design and running these dimmable ballasts are completely silent. They are small and compact in design eg a 600 watt 230 volt ballast weighs less than 3.75 kilos compared to heavy magnetic ballasts. They produce less heat and are manufactured with cut-off circuitry so they cut off when a short is detected for ultimate safety. Their design ensures a longer bulb life and minimum lumen output loss over time (with the correct lamp) is dramatically less than with magnetic ballasts. Lumatek ballasts are also fully interchangeable Lumatek ballasts can light both HPS and MH bulbs (please note that the super lumen switch cannot be engaged on metal halide bulbs). Optional selectable dimming levels at 250W and 400W levels. Boost your output 10% by switching to 400SL. Electronic ballast for 250W or 400W HPS or MH lamp. Envirement temperature for full load operation: -25 to 40°C (-13 to 104°F). Rise (t) 29°C (84.2°F). To light a 250W lamp; set control to 250W and boost output by 10% by switching to 250SL. To light a 400W lamp; set control to 400W and boost output by 10% by switching to 400SL or dim down to 250SL or 250W. The Lumatek 660w Digital Ballast provides a higher PAR output and yet is far more energy efficient than most other ballasts on the market.
