The ‘e’ in gavita ‘e-series’ products stands for external control, showing which fixtures can be controlled by a Gavita Master Controller . This redefines the traditional installation of lighting fixtures, as theres no need for contactors and clocks as the controller takes care of everything. Use of the controller gives added safety features such as automatic dimming of your lights at elevated temperatures and even a safety shutdown.
Gavita have improved the electronics and changed the way the ballast is built, by mounting the PCB and warm components directly on the heat sinks instead of in a ballast bracket. The much cooler electronics result in a greater reliability and a longer life. The innovative design of the housing even increases the cooling effect thanks to the large surface area that allows for passive cooling.
The fixture comprises of a ballast, reflector and lamp in one complete compact package. Made according to horticultural standards, the housing of the ballast is sealed and contains a gore-tex® plug to ventilate the housing, while keeping dust and humidity out.
Ballast output is either controlled by the Gavita Master controllers, or an external switch, allowing it to be adjusted to 600, 750, 825, 1000 W, and 1150W boosted output.
The Master Controller can centrally control the output hundreds of fixtures in a range between 500 and 1150W output power. Using the Master controller safeguards your valuable crop by the added auto-dim and auto-shutdown features, and completely automates your light control.
The compact complete fixture contains a lamp, HR96 reflector and horticultural quality ballast in one comprehensive package. The higher output and added efficiency of the industry standard HR96 reflector make this the workhorse of the family.
Ultra high frequency 400v fixtures deliver much more light to the canopy than traditional 230v units as more photons are created per second. If you're new to the game, the benefits of a 400v system may not be apparent immediately but once you know your set-up and system, yields can increase up to 25%
The reflector is replaceable (we recommend to do this every year to two years to maintain efficiency) and there is a choice of replacement reflectors, that are suitable in different applications:
The spread of the Pro 1000 equipped with the HR96 DE reflector is about 4x6 ft (110x180cm) at 3 ft distance in overlapping plans, providing light levels of up to 1000 µmol s-1 m-2. The fixture uses a Gavita Pro Plus 1000W double ended HPS lamp, generating 2100 µmol s-1 of light. With a light maintenance of over 96% per 5000 hours you only need to replace the bulb once a year.
Mounting is easy because the fixture is balanced and only requires two hanging points. We recommend the use of ratchet hangars to safely suspend your Gavita Fixture, as you will be able to easily adjust the height of the light fixture.
