Convert your reflector to full spectrum 315w CDM light that gives more yield per watt than HPS!
CDM (Ceramic Discharge Metal-Halide) lamps give out an intense full spectrum light that plants love. This kit converts your current reflectors E40 lamp fitting for use with a CDM lamp. This kit contains a perfect solution for getting the most out of plants during flowering, giving you fantastic yields and flavour at the same time as saving you money on energy. The great efficiency of Philips CDM lamps gives results that can beat a 400w HPS and even some of the lower quality 600w grow lights out there, but they only use 315 Watts!
How the E40 to CDM Adapter 315w CDM Grow Light Kit Works
CDM lamps produce an incredibly intense full spectrum light that plants love, so which lamp should I use?
Philips GreenPower 930 Elite Agro CDM Lamp
The 315w Philips GreenPower 930 Elite Agro CDM Lamp is perfect for flowering/fruiting as it has a very high PPF (photosynthetic photon flux) which a way of quantifying the amount of light that plants can actually use.
Philips MasterColour 942 Daylight CDM Lamp
We recommend using the The Philips MasterColour 942 Daylight CDM Lamp during veg growth which gives off a crisp white light, producing an amazing rate of growth, good branching and very short internode length.
The black line in the graph above represents the "McCree Curve", which gives a relative indication of how efficiently a plant uses the different colours in the light spectrum to photosynthesise with.

The Ballast, a Maxibright Daylight 315w has all the incredible features of the DigiLight range but additionally is designed to get the best out of the Philips 315w lamp included in the kit. The ballast features Soft-Start technology to help avoid nuisance-tripping on start-up, particularly if you have more than one of these units starting up at the same time. On top of that, the Daylight ballast includes end-of-lamp-life detection, dynamic frequency control, short-circuit detection, thermal protection and auto-reset. The unit runs silently and is reasonably light weight.
