Lumatek Electronic Ballast

Lumatek is the worlds leading supplier of Electronic Ballasts to horticulture. With the arrival of Electronic Ballasts, a technological revolution has taken place in energy efficiency for HID lighting. This replacement of magnetic ballasts (a technology more than 100 years old) with electronic HID ballasts is because of the proven efficiency gains. Tests have shown that Lumatek ballasts are up to 30% brighter than some old style magnetic ballasts. Independent laboratory tests have proven that Lumatek ballasts are more efficient than any magnetic ballast known to Lumatek. This means more lumens are produced per watt of energy consumed.

Lumatek is the number one supplier of Electronic Ballast to the hydroponics and horticultural industries worldwide, and is proudly available in at least 13 countries. Lumatek products are sold into government research facilities, major nurseries, top universities and numerous publicly traded companies. This makes the Lumatek range the most proven product in the market, in addition we have the industries best warranty with 5 years covered (3 years full and two years pro-rated).

Lumatek Electronic Ballasts: proven technology


Lumatek Dual Spectrum Hps Grow Lamp

Gewicht: kg

Tuned to the ultra-high operating frequency of the Lumatek e-ballasts, the lamp’s components have been reinforced making them much more robust and therefore a long life grow-lighting solution delivering a high level of Photosynthetic Active Radiation to promote healthy plant growth. These lamps have strengthened seals and a reinforced arc frame to ensure that they will provide long lasting performance with stable lumen output.

Boost your yields thanks to a unique gas blend with an optimized spectrum to promote photosynthesis. Enhanced blue spectrum technology means a dual-spec lamp that can be used throughout the entire grow and flower/fruiting cycles. For best results; always pair your Lumatek ballast with a Lumatek grow lamp. For 250 watt, 400 watt or 600 watt.

* More lumen output - up to 30% more lumens output than some old style magnetic ballasts ...More light equals more yield. We urge you to test this yourself with a good quality light meter. Be sure to also check how much power the ballast is using with an ammeter as many so called 600w magnetic ballasts now draw up to 750w as standard to try to keep up with Lumatek’s lumen output.
* More lumens generated per watt of electricity consumed - Lumatek ballast have increased efficacy over magnetic ballasts. They lose fewer watts from the power supply to the lamp. This a power factor of 95%+. The high frequency output results in low power loss at the cathodes in addition to better overall power management.
* Stable light output - excellent for Pharmaceutical-agriculture, laboratories and other uses where precise regularized output is essential.
* Fast start-up - It reaches full brightness in under one minute; magnetic ballasts typically take about twenty minutes.
* Completely silent
* Small compact design - 600watt 120v ballast weighs less than 4.5 kilos compared to almost 20 kilos for magnetic ballasts.
* Produce less heat
* Cut-off circuitry - cut off when a short is detected. For ultimate safety.
* Longer bulb life - Lumen output loss over time, with the correct lamp, is dramatically less than with magnetic ballasts.
* Fully interchangeable - Lumatek ballasts can light both HPS and MH bulbs (excluding the 750w which is HPS only).

Important information about lumatek ballasts:

Lamp compatibility – The Lumatek ballast is a high performance product that is designed to work with most high quality lamps. Cheap inferior lamps may cause problems and Lumatek recommends only high quality American or European lamps. One or two good lamps with very high strike voltages may also be difficult for any electronic ballast to light; Lumatek has an adaptor available for those lamps. For specific recommendations contact your local supplier or Lumatek directly.

Lamp Replacement - Be sure to disconnect the power source before changing lamps. Always use the specified wattage of lamp. (A 400W lamp should not be used in a 600W ballast). Lumatek recommends lamp replacement every 6-12 months.

Hot Re-strike - It is VERY important that the lamp is given adequate time to cool down before it is reignited. You should allow a hot lamp to cool for 20-30 minutes before you try to re-strike it. Hot re-strikes cause premature lamp failure and lumen output degradation. Additionally, the lamp should never be turned off before the lamp reaches full intensity.

H.P.S/M.H - Lumatek ballasts operate both metal halide and high pressure sodium lamps. They will not light MV mercury vapor lamps which are commonly sold in hardware and some hydroponics stores.
*Please note the 750 watt ballast is HPS only.

Mounting Location - Do not install ballasts in areas of very high heat such as an attic or a closed closet. Do not mount the ballast to the reflector or blow exhaust air over them. Do not stack ballast on top of each other. Do not allow contact with water. Mount units at least six inches apart. If a unit has any leaking resin please relocate to a cooler area or place a fan near the ballasts.

NEW! The Lumatek Pro Series is developed to power up 400 Volt professional horticultural lamps and this from a 240 Volt standard mainsupply.

Lumatek introduce the next generation of 240V fully immable electronic ballasts that power professional 400V horticultural lamps, at an affordable price.

    Developed to meet the Grower’s main requirements;
    Extra PAR Light Output – up to 10% more
    More light = more yield
    Improved PAR Light Output maintenance
    Highest System Efficiency
    High Reliability
    Low Energy Costs
    Affordable Price – only 20% more than standard 240V equipment
    Connect to 240V mains supply & power 400V Professional Grow Lamps

400V grow light systems are now industry standard for professional horticulture because of the extra PAR light (Grow Light) produced with greater efficiency and lower energy costs. Improved PAR Light Output maintenance drives constant and uniform plant growth.

Lumatek utilise the next generation of electronic components to reduce the costs of high-end professional equipment to the end-user.
Lumatek Pro 400V electronic ballasts have been specifically developed for the hobby-grower market being able to connect to standard 240V mains supply and power professional 400V horticultural lamps but at a price the hobby-grower can afford! At last, all the benefits of cutting-edge professional horticultural lighting are available to all.

Lumatek Pro ballasts have been tested with all the leading brands of 400V horticultural lamps and have demonstrated increase of PAR light output levels of 8 – 10% gains when compared to standard lamps.
