H2Gro will also be releasing important informtion about PH and Enviromental tips for your grow room so you can produce the best of the best produce from your hydroponic garden year in year out!
Lumatek is a European based company and is the leading manufacturer of European designed digital ballasts. Lumatek set the standard for all other digital ballasts.
Lumatek ballasts run cold, so the ambient temperature in the grow room will not rise from the heat generated by your ballast.
Lumatek ballasts put out continuous feed to the lamp, giving you up to 30% higher lumen output due to extra light time. Your lamp will last twice as long than in any iron core ballast, as the energy feed to the lamp isn’t constantly pulsating, which taxes the lamp. (if you look through a digital camera into your grow room you can see the lines running, this is your lamp constantly starting and stopping, this does not happen when you run Lumatek ballasts)
Lumatek ballasts have a Central Processing Unit (CPU or computer) similar to your home pc which regulates the input and output of the ballast, due to this they have a very gentle start-up which will stop you from blowing timers and increase lamp life, but also means depending on your mains feed, Lumatek ballasts will draw up to 30% less energy from the line to produce its wattage at the lamp.
The ballast’s energy and lamp savings will pay for itself in the six months, and that’s not taking into account the 30% higher yield you can achieve by increasing your lumen output by 30%.
Lumatek ballast are switchable, so you have the ability to run your lamp at just above half its rated output, this makes a big difference to your power usage as while your plants are just starting and don’t require 600w of light for example you can run your ballast at 400w until your plants need more watts, then switch up to 600w for the most part of the cycle, but once you have large healthy plants you can switch up to the super lumen setting, just to give those few extra lumens!
Lumatek digital ballasts are the best on the market, a must for any good grow room!
