What Is The Optilux 600W Digital Ballast?

The Optilux 600W Digital Ballast is smaller, lighter, cooler running and uses less energy than a magnetic ballast. Digital ballasts are a clear upgrade for your light fixtures in your grow room.

This new design of Optilux 600W Digital Ballast offers a new slimline form factor, with improved heat dissipation and up-rated internal electronic components.

What Grow Lamps Can I Use In The Optilux 600W Digital Ballast?

The Optilux 600W Digital Ballast is perfect for firing bulbs up to 600W. This includes: High Pressure Sodium (HPS), Metal Halide (MH) and Dual Spectrum lamps. It gives you the power to choose the type of lamp you use to give them the light spectrum plants need for their stage of growth.

Are Digital Ballasts Cheaper To Run Versus Magnetic Ballasts?

Digital ballasts save you electricity. Digital ballasts don't waste much power as heat or to resistance when compared to magnetic ballasts. This is because digital ballasts are electronically controlled, so much more efficient.

What Do I Get With A Optilux 600W Digital Ballast?

The Optilux 600W Digital Ballast is supplied with a 1.5 metre cable. This allows you to place your ballasts near your power source. We then advise that you keep the ballast outside of the grow tent and run the power to the reflector (which has a longer cable) from there. This allows you to avoid the risk of splashing water on to the ballast. It also allows you to position your fixtures exactly where you need them.

How to Use Your Optilux 600W Digital Ballast

The Optilux 600W Digital Ballast is easy to use:

  • Plug the power cable in to the ballast.
  • Connect the reflector (with lamp installed) to the ballast.
  • Plug the ballast in to a suitable plug socket and switch it on.

The Optilux digital ballast has 4x dimming options. This provides you with ultimate control of the bulb you use and how much light intensity your garden receives.

Garden tip: While you can power your 600W lamp at a lower, dimmed setting, we recommend that you purchase a lamp for the exact wattage you intend to drive it at. Never run a low wattage bulb at a higher wattage than it’s been designed for.

Caution: Only run 600W lamps with the x-boost superlumen feature. There is a risk that lower wattage bulbs may explode.

We do not recommend running your 600W lamps on lower wattage settings. Bulbs are calibrated to run at set currents. The spectral output can shift with the change in power, and the light produced may not work as intended. Always use the correct power setting for your bulb.

Garden tip: When installing your indoor garden, keep all electrics above waist height and all water below it. This helps to reduce the chance of accidents when the two mix.

Use a Maxiswitch Pro Solo Timer to control your light regime for one light fixture, but you’ll need a contactor for more than one light, as it’s safer from an electrical standpoint.

Metal halide lamps are not suitable for 660W x-boost super-lumens feature.
