The Gavita Pro is the ultimate professional 600 Watt lighting system. Supplied with a fitted 240 Volt electronic ballast and a Phillips Greenpower 600W EL Lamp, this system offers the highest PAR output possible.
Combined with the highly reflective HortiStar HR 96 relflector, the Gavita Pro is a complete fixture which requires no wiring and little assembly. With electronics designed by Phillips, the high frequency ballast ensures the Gavita Pro provides optimum light output and maintenance.
The high voltage lamp technology results in a better efficiency of the arc tube: more light for the same power (10-25% more than traditional single ended lamps)! These lamps are best suited for extreme high frequency electronic ballasts, creating a stable arc without acoustic resonance, assuring optimal output and a long lamp life. The smaller arc tube and outer balloon require the lamp to be nitrogen filled instead of vacuum, which prohibits it to be air cooled. Air cooling of the lamp results in lower lamp temperature, which results in sub-optimal light output, up to 15% less than specified. Therefore these lamps are not suitable for direct air cooled fixtures.
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.
Product Specification for Pro 600
Standard HR96 SE (Single Ended) reflector is about 2.7×4 ft (80×120 cm) at 2 ft distance in overlapping plans for light levels up to 1000 µmol s-1 m-2.
The fixed output, high frequency electronic ballast is designed to drive the Gavita Pro Plus 600 high voltage, high frequency single ended lamp, generating 1150 µmol s-1 of PAR light. This ballast is only suitable for our 400V, high frequency HPS lamps. With a light maintenance of over 96% per 5000 hours you only need to replace it once a year.
