This 600 W digital, dual-lamp grow light kit provides you with great value for money. The 600 W digital ballast will power either of the two supplied lamps, which are simple to fit to the supplied euro reflector.
Two lamps are supplied. One for vegetation and one for the flowering stage of your plant's life cycle:
Once you fit the components together and connect the mains supply, you'll be growing in no time.
NOTE: If you don't already have suitable hangers, you'll need to add some to your order.
For electrical safety, we recommend using your lights with a suitable contactor. Contactors work to handle the initial power surge at lights on. They also control the on/off switching of the light fixture using professional Grasslin timers. Depending on the contactor you have a couple of optional functions: contactors can be used to activate a heater before the lights go out to help avoid issues with heat stress and condensation. They can also provide "always-on" power for extraction fans.
This 600 W digital light kit is suitable for use in any size garden. The kit offers you an affordable lighting system that covers your lighting needs, without compromising performance. It is also well-suited to larger operations that are looking to expand on a budget.
The Kit comes complete with all the components you'll need to light your indoor growing space, including:
Euro reflectors are a staple amongst indoor growers, they’re wide angled and open ended so there won’t be any heat building up under the shade allowing you to get the reflector closer to your canopy without negative side-effects. Euro reflectors are made from a highly reflective anodised aluminium that’s hammered and dimpled to eradicate hot spots and provide even light distribution. The long power lead allows you to connect to the digital ballast and keep it outside the growing space.
The 600 W digital ballast is perfect for powering the supplied 600 W HPS lamp. Digital ballasts work to control the voltage and current supplied to your lamp through soft-start and surge protection. It manages the power to avoid the lamp overheating too quickly and exploding.
The digital ballast is capable of controlling HPS and MH lights to 600 W. Four dim options*: 250 W, 400 W, 600 W & 660 W boost, allow you to configure the supplied lamp to your growing needs. It comes supplied with a 1.5 metre power cable, allowing you to place the ballast around your power source. You'll then connect the euro reflector, which has a longer cable, allowing you to position it exactly where you need it inside your grow room.
* You'll achieve much better results by purchasing a lamp for the exact lower wattage you intend to drive it at.
CAUTION: Never run a bulb at a higher wattage than it’s been designed for - It may explode with potential for personal injury.
The 600 W Metal Halide (MH) lamp supplied with this light kit is specifically engineered for early growth and vegetation. Their output is centred on the blue end of the light spectrum. The Lamps have been chemically balanced to produce as much photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) output as possible, a measure of total light available for photosynthesis. The plants can use most of the light generated during growth, producing more biomass, larger leaves and stronger stems, putting your plants in the perfect position for blossom.
The 600 W High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamp supplied with this value light kit emits red and blue spectrum light. You can use this as your only light source throughout all stages of your plants life cycle. However, the include MH light is better suited to early growth stages. The HPS lamp is better suited to provide your plants the light they need for strong internodal spacing with more flowers developed.
Digital ballasts offer many benefits over their magnetic counterparts. The newer technology is lighter, operates quieter and cooler and prolongs the life of your bulb through soft-start and surge protection. A major benefit of digital ballasts is their adjustable nature. Digital ballasts also allow you to run different wattage lamps, as long as they are within the ballasts capability.
To elongate the life of your bulbs, wear gloves to avoid hotspots. Hotspots occur when you handle the bulb without gloves on and transfer dirt and grease from your hands to the bulb.
To set up your digital light kit:
To maintain consistent results, change your bulbs in 4 - 6 month intervals or once every complete cycle to keep light output as high as possible.
CAUTION: For safety reasons, we recommend situating your digital ballast outside your grow room.
Where possible, situate electrical items above waist level to reduce the chances of water coming into contact with them. If you’re situating the digital ballast in your room, place it high enough to reduce the risk of water coming into contact with it.
Please note, to allow us to maintain competitive pricing and provide the you with the best value, we may occasionally change the make or model of items supplied with this value kit. Any changed parts will be at least equal standard.
