The Gavita Pro is the ultimate professional 1000 Watt lighting system. Supplied with a fitted, dimmable 240 Volt electronic ballast and a Phillips Greenpower 1000W double-ended EL lamp, this system offers the highest PAR output possible from any 1000W horticultural lamp.
The unique double-ended lamp removes the need for a frame support wire, eliminating any shadows in the beam. With electronics designed by Phillips, the high frequency ballast (coupled with a specifically designed reflector) ensures the Gavita Pro provides optimum light output and maintenance.
In addition to this, the solid state ballast is completely closed and has extremely low levels of heat dissipation and acoustic resonance, reducing the amount of heat and noise in your grow room.
The Gavita Pro 1000DE Ballast output is controlled by an external switch, allowing it to be adjusted to 600, 750, 825, 1000 W, and 1150W boosted output. The high frequency ballast was specifically designed for the Gavita double ended HPS lamp, resulting in an accurate, optimal output, a stable burning lamp and a better light maintenance over time. The ballast is not suitable to run Metal Halide lamps.
The reflector is replaceable (we recommend to do this every year to two years) and there is a choice of replacement reflectors:
- The HR96 DE for overlapping configurations, assuring optimal uniformity and penetration. This is the industry standard reflector delivered with the fixture.
- The W 150 DE for wide configurations, where uniformity and lower light levels are required in large rooms. 150 degrees beam angle, for double ended lamps.
- The M 110 DE SR for applications in single rows and small rooms, where a single reflector needs to create uniformity and high light levels. 110 degrees beam angle, for double ended lamps.
The spread of the Pro 1000 with HR96 DE reflector is about 4×6 ft (110x180cm) at 3 ft distance in overlapping plans, providing light levels of up to 1000 µmol s-1 m-2.
The fixture’s light source is a Gavita Pro Plus 1000W double ended HPS lamp, generating 2100 µmol s-1 of light. With a light maintenance of over 96% per 5000 hours you only need to replace it once a year.
Mounting is easy because the fixture is balanced and only requires two hanging points. For c-profile installations we have convenient brackets available.
