The DimLux Expert Series Complete Full Spectrum Lighting Kits feature the Alpha Optics reflector which is replaceable and designed according to the Single Bounce Clear Sight (SBCS) principle. They also come equipped with Miro Silver mirrors and so the highest possible efficiency (98%) of all available horticulture reflectors is achieved as a result.
There are adjustable side reflectors for better overlap and to minimise wall losses by directing more light onto your canopy. The side reflectors allow the user to set the footprint of each fixture for the perfect balance between penetration and coverage.
The lamps are passively cooled thanks to the open design of the reflector, making it much more efficient and beneficial for the life and spectral output of the lamp over time.
When the 50mm socket is connected to your extraction, room temperature is reduced by extracting the hot air in the immediate vicinity of the bulb. These lamps will always keep at the ideal temperature and so the efficiency and lifespan of the bulb becomes even higher.
All Dimlux fixtures can be powered via a Dimlux Maxi controller, allowing the control of up to 160 Dimlux units at once.
Replacement bulbs can be found here, but you'll only need to replace CMH bulbs once every 2 years to ensure your output stays high.
How to use:
Dimlux 315w units are a perfect standalone lighting option for use with Ceramic metal halide lamps. The CDM's full spectrum is much more balanced and will provide colours that are missing in traditional HID fixtures like blues, greens and UV - increasing quality.
Only use these bulbs with a ballast designed for powering 315w CDM units - failure to do so may cause the lamp to explode.
When you first switch on your 315w lighting kit, make sure you leave it on for at least 15 minutes to let the mix of metals inside the lamp properly fuse. Failure to properly ‘bed’ your lamp will result in the warranty being voided and could lead to the lamp failing.
If you’re having trouble installing your lamp into the reflector, make sure that it’s around the correct way as one of the connections is a different shape, preventing the lamp from being installed incorrectly. Sometimes it can be a bit tricky to properly install the bulb - make sure you've pushed the legs of the lamp fully into the correct holes before turning.
Make sure you use a clean cloth to hold the bulb when installing it into the reflector - any scratches or residues on the bulb may cause it to shatter and any grease or dirt will reduce the efficiencies.
Due to the partial vacuum between the outer and inner glass shealths, glass may fly if the outer envelope is broken. Discontinue use if the bulb is broken, cracked or scratched. If the outer envelope gets blemished, it may stop filtering harmful UVC rays which could have negative effects on long-term health.
