The massive new Magnum XXXL Reflector. An excellent way to get the most out of your 1000 watts. With a 1000 watt Quantum Dimmable Electronic Ballast. Your Choice of the Magnum 6" AC or the Magnum 8" AC Reflector.About the Quantum Electronic Ballast
The Quantum Series digital ballast has features not found with any other brand of ballast currently on the market. The Quantum Series ballast is the only ballast on the market to offer you a dimming switch that enables you to run your ballast at the strength YOU desire. This not only makes it easier to harden off young plants just being introduced to HID lighting, but also allows you to control your footprint and power usage as well. You can increase the power to your ballast as your garden grows and demands more light, and save yourself a substantial amount of money on your power bill over the length of your crop cycle.
Another key point of these ballasts' is they have no dedicated voltage. Switching between 120v and 240v is as easy as changing the power cords. Both, of course, are included with your ballast. There is no need to purchase any additional equipment or change any wiring.Price Includes:
- Magnum XXXL Reflector - 6" AC
- Built in Socket and Glass Lens
- Sunsystem Socket Cord
- Quantum Ballast

All Quantum ballasts come wired with the Sunlight Supply standard female lamp cord receptacle that accepts their proprietary, patented male lame cord, making these units compatible with all Sun System® reflectors.

Instructions for Quantum Series Lighting
We welcome you to the latest in digital lighting technology. Quantum Series Lighting ballasts have been specially designed to perform in the extreme atmospheric conditions found in indoor gardening situations. Quantum Horticulture has gone through great lengths to ensure that this device complies with Part 18 of the FCC rules and regulations.
Quantum Series Lighting ballasts will strike both Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium lamps without having to flip switches or change wiring like a standard core and coil ballast, while also saving you a noticeable amount of power on your electric bill. Savings of up to 30% have been reported from our laboratory testing facilities compared to standard core and coil ballasts.
Your new ballast is the ONLY digital ballast on the market that is switchable from 120v to 240v by simply changing power cords (both 120v and 240V included). As with any electrical device, make sure that your ballast’s incoming power cords and outgoing lamp cords are never exposed directly to water. We want you and your garden to be safe. Always keep your cords neat and tidy to eliminate any possibility of accidentally tripping over them or catching them on protruding objects.
Also unique to your new ballast is the three phase dimming switch that allows you to run your lamp at 100%, 75%, and 50% power. This is useful in hardening off plants just being introduced to HID lighting, as well as letting you custom tailor your lighting requirements should you decide that a smaller footprint is needed. You can increase the power to your ballast as your garden grows and demands more light, as well you can save money by not using un-needed wattage.
The dimming switch is located on the front of your ballast just above the lamp cord. Always allow 30 seconds between the different output settings to allow your ballast to draw the proper amount of power and charge your bulb to the desired setting. Do not rapidly toggle the control back and forth as this may cause damage to your ballast and/or bulb.
If the ballast should go off for any reason, always allow the bulb to cool before re-striking it again. This allows the gases inside the bulb to cool and reignite. In the case that a power surge blows the fuse in your ballast, an extra fuse is included and is stored behind a small tab located underneath the power cord inlet. Be gentle when you open the tab as to not damage it. Make sure the ballast is unplugged before replacing or inspecting the fuse.
Our engineers have also programmed the ballast with an automatic time delay in case of power outage. This was built in for the safety of you, your garden, and your equipment. If a shut down should occur, the lamp will strike by the time the bulb has cooled. Do not turn the ballast on and off in a rapid manner this may cause damage to your ballast and/or bulb.
When striking your lamp, make sure all cord ends are firmly attached and a bulb is installed in your socket assembly correctly. Plug your ballast into your power source and give it a few seconds to gather power. As with any ballast, the bulb will take a few moments to reach its maximum output.
The Quantum Series ballast is covered by a full THREE YEAR WARRANTY under normal use. You can increase the life of your ballast by always making sure it is kept clean and out of extremely damp conditions. The oxidized powder coating on the housing can be cleaned with a dry cloth, and the sealed bearing cooling fan should be kept clean of dust and debris. It is advised to turn off your ballast before running a sulphur burner, so the internal circuitry is not exposed to corrosive elements. This will extend the life of your ballast.
It is imperative that you ALWAYS use a bulb centric to the wattage of your ballast. Doing otherwise may cause damage to your ballast and/or bulb. (i.e. 400w bulb/400w ballast, 600w bulb/600w ballast, 750w bulb/750w ballast, 1000w bulb/1000w ballast)
You will notice how much cooler your new ballast runs and how lightweight it is. The base of the unit gives you many options of how you would like to mount it. Make sure that the ballast is always off the floor, is always fastened securely, and the fan is always free from obstructions when you choose how you want to permanently place it.
You have many choices as to what products you use in your gardens; we thank you for choosing Quantum Horticulture.
