How to Use the Dimlux Expert Series - 1000 Watt Grow Light
Simply hang the combined ballast & reflector over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls or jack chain. Run the 4.0m kettle lead from the reflector to a standard UK mains outlet or your contactor and switch on.
Dimlux lighting is best used in conjunction with the Dimlux Maxi Controller. Two of these units can be connected to the Maxi Controller directly using speaker wire, and additional ballasts / fixtures can then be daisy chained from the original ballasts up to a total of 160 units. You can power multiple Dimlux fixtures using the following power supply units:
Green Power 4-Way Powerbox
Green Power 6-Way Powerbox
Green Power 8-Way Powerbox
Warning 1: When it is time to change out the lamp, make sure that it is replaced with another 400 Volt / 1000 Watt Pro HPS lamp such as the Horturion 400 Volt / 1000 Watt HPS EL. Using a standard HPS lamp in a 400 Volt lighting system will possibly cause damage, explosions or fire. Fit the lamp as shown in the image above so that the side with the small square is closest to the ballast and the other end is at the outer edge of the reflector.
Warning 2: When HID lamps are switched on they run extremely hot. As with all high pressure sodium and metal halide bulbs it is necessary to avoid touching the lamp with anything such as fingers or plants as this may cause severe burns or fires. In particular avoid sprays or liquids coming into contact with the lamp as this may cause premature failure or even an explosion.v
