Made in America:A 400 watt HPS Grow Light that Pounds Out the Light!It is PERFECT FOR THE SERIOUS GROWER, Just what you need for full scale production! HPS gives you the most light per dollar. Metal Halide provides the best early growth spectrum. Metal Halide conversion bulb may be purchased for $36.00 - see our other listings!It’s Bright because it’s a FULL HOOD!With generous side and end deflectors, this excellent hood delivers more light than those crummy open ended batwings. It has no light trapping closed corners and does not re-reflect light back into the reflector. BEWARE: DON’T TRAP YOUR LIGHT IN A BOX!Our deflectors are scientifically slanted to deflect light straight down on the plants in a single bounce! Stay away from box shaped lights with vertical (non slanted) end panels. These Trap Light. (Details Later) It featuresHigh Red Light Content HPSfor ExplosiveBudding, Flowering and growth!Plants most efficiently use red light for photosynthesis. (Plants are green because they reflect green light back!) The deep orange light of the HPS lamp contains plenty of nutritious red light. Plants can almost as efficiently use blue light. And in the early grow stages, blue light of the metal halide bulbis imperative for natural vigorous growth.It’s Cool. Weoffer a totally different type of reflector that does not produce hot spots. Our engineered reflector directs light straight down with out focusing it to a line. Plus, because our reflector is so much more efficient, you don’t have to have the hot bulb so close to the plants.It's a Virgin Light: w/Top Quality New Ballast, New Lamp & New High Yield ReflectorIt's priced so low!How much money will you lose trying to fix a "discarded" light that someone "refurbished" into a "new" growlight when it blows out? You wouldn’t buy used spark plugs, would you?…. So why buy a discarded light fixture that someone “refurbished” into a grow light?Excellentgrow light includes:(1) NEW! FULL HOOD REFLECTOR that delivers more of the light you're paying for.(2) NEW Top Notch USA Quality Ballast(3) New 400 w HPSbulb , New socket, New heavy gauge power cord, ballast to lamp cord with quick disconnects.(4) Blemished ballast enclosure that we've repainted to save you $$$. (This is the only item that is not completely new)HPS bulbs usually make more light energy than metal halide (MH) lamps. However, the orange HPS (identical to street light) HPS spectrum is defective so that it produces unnatural lanky growth. On the other hand, natural white light metal halides produce lush compact growth with lots of leaves. So a good strategy is to start under metal halide until the plant is nearly fully grown. Then you switch to the higher light energy HPS bulb for budding, flowering, and fruiting. HOW Does this light Compare to Others on eCRATER?1. Higher Output.(a) Better (1.5 Power) Reflector-Slanted End Wings are the KeyThis is an economy four sided version of our SUPER OUTPUT Series Reflector. (see Ray diagrams) This economy version reflector is head and shoulders above the competitor’s open ended batwingsor fixture with square, non-slanted ends.More Light = More Growth. Also: More Usable Light per fixture = Fewer and/or Lower wattage fixtures required = Electrical Savings.Here’s the critical and costly error that others make: They act like light only comes off the side of a bulb. Light actually comes off of each portion of a light bulb in all possible directions. The truth is our competitors have really blown it. They need to think in 3 dimensions. The electric arc inside of an HPS or Metal Halide lamp emits light in all possible directions as shown in the picture. That’s why we offerour large, multi-faceted hoods to fully enclose the bulb. It’s what's required to fully capture and redirect light down on your plants. Low end fixtures are made by just bending corrugatedaluminum in a hump. Light will fly right out the open ends over the tops of the plants. What a waste! Are you trying to light up your plants or the wall? If you want to grow plants, use this reflector, not crummy open ended ones. Bad Lights have gotten worse.Other lights are built like shoe boxes. That is the ends are boxed in with flat vertical panels. As shown on the diagram at the side, light bounces back and forth between the end panels, losing intensity with each bounce.The optical efficiency of these shoe box lights is terrible! The best shoe box light I could find still loses 22% of the light internally. The worst photometric report I’ve ever seen showed just under a 50% loss.What is worse? Vertical aluminum end panels do nothing to deflect light in a downward direction. Instead, a light ray bounces back and forth at the same exact angle. And if a light ray escapes the reflector, it is still not headed in the direction of the plants!When one eCRATER seller put end panels on his crummy batwing, he said “the best got better”. The truth is “the bad got worse”.So why are these batwing or shoe box lights even made? The answer is that they are cheap to make and don’t require skilled labor. As you have seen, they are not good lights.(b) We usea Tortoise 400 w bulb that beats the Jack Rabbit 430 w "high output"bulb.Light bulbs lose light output as they age. Fast buck salesmen like to quote initial light outputs. But lighting engineers measure light using “median” or “design lumens” to truly measure usable output as the bulb ages. That's why we use bulbs that make more light over the long haul!Some companies may try to sell you 430 watt bulbs that they call "high output" 400 watt bulbs. so-called high output bulbdoes not hold up on HPS bulbs are not like normal light bulbs.You can't screw an HPS bulb into any ole wattage ballast and get the light output labeled on the box.So the high output bulb ratings can be phony, even though a 430 watt bulb will start on a 400 w ballast. Even if you use the 430 watt bulb on a matching 430 watt ballast, the lightproduction.Manufacturers data clearly shows that at 6,400 hours (which is only 27% of the claimed bulb life) a Jack Rabbit 430 w bulb makes only 47,770 lms of light. Our Tortoise 400 w bulb is making 48,000 lms then. -- But it’s using ~30 less watts to do it! Over the long haul, we give you More Light for Less Money.Even when the Jack Rabbit bulb is at full brightness when first run on a full (430) watt ballast, it is no more energy efficient than the Tortoise bulb. After the bulb ages it is actually less energy efficient than a Tortoise bulb.2A Real 2 year Manufacturer’s Warranty. Since the ballast is new, it is warranted by the US manufacturer.We are not taking used, scrapped lights out of a factory, cleaning them and calling them “refurbished” and reusing the ballasts. If by chance, something is wrong with a ballast component, you get a new replacement. You won’t get another used piece of junk that should have gone for scrap. We know this is true, because people are coming to us for repair parts.We offer low costs on new electricals and new reflectors. This fixture is all new except for the blemished ballast enclosure that we’ve repainted.3. Our Fixture has a better ballast Featuring:(1)Low Heat S51 400 watt HPS Core (uses 5 watts less energy than competitive ballasts) This ballast’s laminations are vacuum impregnated with insulation to optimize cooling and generate about lowest sound rating in the industry. Cheaper cores are just slopped full of orange varnish that’s prone to have air bubbles.(2) High Temperature Igniter (105 C) (The igniter is the big bottle type, not the little bolt on type that can cause problems.)(3) Dry High Temperature Capacitor (100 C) (It is not oil filled so it can't leak. The capacitor is a very large 1.75" by 4.87", so it can easily dissipate heat. There are cheap mini-capacitors that may be called "high temperature", but they are so small that they actually heat up enough to exceed their ratings.Tricky offshore manufacturers often take two small capacitors and put them in a case. Not so here, the capacitor is solid all the way.)4. It is Sealed for Your protection -- We stilloffer fixtures made the old fashioneded way. --WATER & ELECTRICITY DON’T MIX!We offer enclosed ballasts to keep moisture off and to prevent mechanical damage. Look closely at how some grow lights have been cheapened. If you see a light fixture with a big black block on the side or on the bottom, that’s the ballast core. Having the ballast exposed leaves it susceptible to moisture and mechanical damage.It’s never a good idea to spray a ballast with water, but if condensation or over spray is a concern, our fixture’s enclosure allows an additional measure of safety.The enclosure helps prevent mechanical damage too! We do not cheapen the fixture by leaving the ballast exposed to injury. The vulnerable ballast cores that you see exposed on competitors designs are nothing more than a series of thin steel plates with insulating vanish in between and around. If this ballast gets banged around, it's possible to short the plates out. We’ve personally seen this happen before. It’s not thatexposed designs are particularly dangerous, as long as they are used correctly.Some people are overly worried about heat build up with ballasts, probably due to experience with low quality ballasts using oil filled capacitors. (Ours our dry film) If it makes you feel better, the lid on the ballast enclosure will rest open for air flow. But this isn’t necessary. This fixture uses a tough, high grade ballast intended to be used in applications where it’s necessary to seal out water and corrosive vapors. For instance, we use the same ballast in our completely sealed flood lights. Here the ballast can be locked into a sealed box with a burning lamp. This fixture is designed to conduct ballast heat outside through the chassis.WE ARE THE GUYS TO TRUST!Our charts, graphs, and statistics are based upon fundamental physics and e
