Fresh Tips (Grow Lights #5)
This week’s focus: Grow Lights
#5 – Digital Lighting
Electronic (Digital) Ballasts are ushering in the new age of indoor grow lighting, proving equal or increased light compared to the conventional core and coil Magnetic ballasts. Digintal ballasts do this at a more afforadable cost (due to their greater efficiency and less power usage.) Digital Ballasts offer less heat production and virtually silent opperation. They are also much lighter and smaller than their archaic hulking brethren. There are many different Digital Ballasts to choose from on the market today. All come from China (not a single Digital Ballast is made in the U.S. or any other country for that matter,) and most are faulty or poorly crafted. Stay far away from the FutureBrites or the Global GreenHouses (or any other Digital ballast with a fan – the good ones are at least Resin Sealed) We think the Lumateks are easily the best Digital Ballast on the market today. They are resin sealed, and produce the least amount of EMI (electro- magnetic interference) of any electronic ballast and conform to all international Electro-magnetic emission standards. What makes them really special is that they are 15-20% brighter than Standard Magnetic Ballasts and also most Digital Ballasts as well. Next to the Lumateks, nothing else really compares, but we had to choose another ballast it would be the Galaxy.
That’s all for today folks. Come back tomorrow for tip #6 when we focus on HID Bulbs. Visit http://www.igrowhydro.com for the best selection on all your grow lights needs.
