DIGITAL GREENHOUSE DIMMABLE 1000w BALLAST
What is up with DIMMABLE Ballasts
Dimmable Digital Electronic ballasts are the latest innovation in High Intensity Discharge (HID) Horticultural Lighting Technology. The Digital Greenhouse DIMMABLE Digital Ballasts allows you to operate your 1000 watt lamp at 50%, 75% or 100% Full Power! This is especially useful when you have young plants that do not need and cannot withstand the full output of 1,000 watts. You can start your plants under 50% power, then as they grow move up to 75% and finish them off with 100% full power. This saves you money on your electric bill and more importantly fullfills the lighting needs your plants require at specific stages of growth. It’s all about CONTROL! You control the output of the light your plants need when they need it!
Digital Greenhouse Digital Electronic ballasts have a proven track record of reliability and performance. Digital Greenhouse Digital ballasts are also one of the very few Digital Ballast to earn the U.L. Listing Seal of Approval that ensures the product is safe to use. Digital Greenhouse Digital ballasts offer a 5 YEAR WARRANTY (3 year full warranty, 2 year pro-rated) so you can rest assured this is a quality product that will give you many years of solid performance.
The recommended square foot coverage (area measure on the floor space of a garden) for a 1000 watt system is roughly 36-100 sq/ft.
Please note this is just a basic recommendation and depending on your particular garden or plants (and even reflector style) you may be able to use this light in a smaller or larger area than the suggested area of coverage. As a general rule, a garden cannot have “too much light”. Meeting the plants demands for water, nutrients and CO2 must be met with increased light intensity to achieve optimium plant growth. Heat is often also a concern in any indoor garden and growers must be prepared to deal with ventilating the heat generated by a lighting system (and humidity produced by the plants). Different reflector styles also lend themselves to different sized gardens. Extra-Large reflectors like the SunSoaker or AiroFlow are designed to accomodate a large garden area while the MaxWing and others are best for modest, medium sized gardens. Using Air Cooled Reflectors is also suggested as they greatly facilitate containing and removing the heat generated by the lamp/bulb.
