  • Phantom II CMh 315W Ceramic Metal Halide Digital Ballast

    The Phantom CMh 315W ballast is a remotely operated, low frequency, square-wave digital ballast designed specifically for the 315W high intensity ceramic halide lamp, which can be used with equal effectiveness for both vegetative and flowering growth. It features internal RF shielding, multi-aspect protection circuitry, versatile 120/208/240V input voltage, and patented lamp depreciation control.

    Like all ballasts in the Phantom family, the CMh 315 ballast is silent, reliable, and energy-efficient. It can easily be wall-mounted near the reflector, and can be mounted up to fifty feet away from the reflector using our optional lamp cord extensions. Includes an 8' 120V power cord, operating instructions, and a three-year warranty.

    Phantom 315W features:
    Low Frequency, square wave technology provides much greater current stability and consistency in output levels, as well as low acoustic resonance
    Up to 65' lamp striking distance: Separate the ballast from your reflector by up to 65' of distance if necessary (optional lamp cord extensions may be needed)
    Multi-volt capability: Can be run at either 120V or 240V
    Multi-aspect Protection Circuitry: Includes short circuit protection, open circuit protection, overvoltage protection, under voltage protection, overcurrent protection, hot lamp startup protection, lightning protection, overheat protection, lamp failure protection, and lamp life warning
    Patented output control maintains maximum PAR value over lamp life

  • Xtrasun DE 1000w 240V System

    The Xtrasun DE double-ended lighting system is a high-intensity horticultural lighting system that is an excellent choice for a range of applications. It combines an Xtrasun enclosed double-ended reflector with a variable-wattage Xtrasun DE ballast and a high-PAR Xtrasun DE high-pressure sodium lamp. This powerful and versatile commercial-grade system allows users to select the most appropriate light intensity level for their particular setup.

    This system’s attached, enclosed-form reflector is made from multifaceted 95% reflective European hammertone aluminum and provides downward-focused output that maximizes light intensity. This provides ideal canopy illumination and uniformity of coverage, making it the ideal reflector for many applications.

    The Xtrasun DE ballast features rugged build quality, multi-aspect protection circuitry, and variable wattage output that offers several choices on a range from 600W to 1150W using 1000W DE lamps. It is CSA-certified, has RF shielding, and is FCC compliant. Naturally, it is totally silent while operating.

    Features:

    Enclosed design delivers maximized light output
    Excellent uniformity makes it the ideal reflector for lower mounting heights
    Vented top for heat management and longer lamp life
    Requires fewer reflectors to meet desired light levels
    Versatile—can be used for many different applications

  • Autopilot PX1 Digital Lighting Controller from Hydrofarm – Controller and Ballast Set Up

    The Autopilot PX1 Digital Lighting Controller from Hydrofarm provides centralized, dual-zone digital control of your DE lighting, allowing you to switch, dim and boost multiple USB-compatible Hydrofarm ballasts at once—up to 256 in each of two independent zones for a total capacity of 512 ballasts. The trunk-line cable connections ensure perfect communication between the controller and all ballasts in the chain.

    The PX1 has two dedicated temperature sensors—one for each zone—that provide real-time data for automated temperature-based dimming, as well as a high temperature shutdown feature that protects your garden while you’re away. The PX1 replaces traditional analog lighting relays, and eliminates inrush current. Each of its dual zones provides precise and independent:

    • Photoperiod timing to control light and dark cycles

    • Wattage output control, which allows users to control the intensity of the light being emitted from fixtures

    • Auto-dimming when temperature exceeds set points

    • Emergency auto-shutdown of lights upon user-defined over temperature events

    • Configurable restrike delay times, which eliminates lamp-damaging hot starts

    • Sunrise/sunset simulation settings, which provide a gradual ramp-up and down at both ends of your photoperiod

    • Includes 2 - 20' temperature probes

    • includes 8' 100v-240v 50/60hz power adapter

    The PX1 Digital Lighting Controller is easy to set up, and is compact and lightweight. It is a true digital ballast interface that makes multiple-ballast control easy and affordable to achieve. It is simply more powerful, more reliable, and more capable than competing controllers. The PX1 is designed to work with any Phantom or Hydrofarm ballasts with USB connectivity, and are ideally paired with PARsource DE reflectors and Agrosun DE HPS lamps.

    (*RJ12 connection cables and splitter are included in the ballast box)
