Lumatek bill themselves and their digital ballast as “the biggest advancement in horticultural lighting” and one would be hard pressed to disagree. Modern digital ballast designs use advanced electronics to precisely regulate the current flowing through the electrical circuit. Since they use a higher cycle rate, flickers or audible humming noises are generally reduced or eliminated altogether. Infact, they are so quiet you have to put your ear up to them to detect the sound. They are also safer as the unit is completely sealed from the inside. Eliminating Vibrations.
Different grow lamps require specialized ballasts designed to maintain specific voltage and current levels for various designs. Lumatek digital ballasts produce 20-30% higher light output, and use less electricity than the magnetic core-and-coil models. For example, the 600W digital ballast from Lumatek produces within 5% of the light that the 1000W magnetic counterpart does.
Other advantages of the Lumatek Digital Ballast are quick to get started - less than a minute, opposed to nearly 20 mins for some less capable models. Less heat generated, broader light spectrum and automatic cut off circuitry for your ultimate safety when a short is detected.
Enjoy more lumens and a fully interchangable digital ballast with a Lumatek digital ballast. These ballasts can light both HPS and MH bulbs.
By eliminating fans from their ballasts, Lumatek models are among the most stunningly silent in the industry. They are also less likely to break down due to the simplicity of their updated design. Vibrations have also been eliminated.
The soft-start technology means that your lamp lasts up to three times as long but full brightness is capable in under one minute.
Lumatek Digital Ballasts also maintain their efficiency throughout their lifespan without degrading like standard ballasts.
Every Lumatek Digital Ballast has burned in the factory for over 12 hours. The ballast can be mounted in areas of extreme heat and can withstand temperatures up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.Small and compact in design - it's just a quarter of the weight of standard magnetic ballasts.
Lumatek ballasts include a 15 foot RF shielded output cord that can be extended up to 30 feet. Allowing positioning of ballasts in another room or at great distance from your space. All other digital ballasts can only have a 10 foot lamp cord and most of them interfere with radio and satellite TV signals because they are not shielded.
When you purchase a Lumatek digital ballast, you are purchasing a device that maintains its efficiency throughout its lifespan.
