Full-Spectrum Light Combined with the Daylight Reflector - AKA the CDM Supernova
This kit includes the Daylight Reflector, which is a customised version of the popular Supernova Reflector that comes with a CDM lamp holder (no need for an adapter). You can choose from the two best CDM ballasts out there: the Maxibright Daylight and the Sol-Digital SuperBRIGHT. They will drive the supplied Philips lamp efficiently and effectively, and come with an array of features. For us, the Sol-Digital just pips it as the better ballast (due to it having a couple of extra features), but it's a close call.
We also offer a choice between the Philips GreenPower 930 Elite Agro Lamp and the Philips MasterColour 942 Daylight. The Elite Agro emits a broad light-spectrum that’s heavier in the red area, making it better for adding weight and improving oil production when flowering. The 942 Daylight's spectrum is optimised for rapid vegetative growth. It'll help to reduce your veg times and shorten the length of internodes, for tighter, stronger plants with less stretching. This helps you to make the best use of the space in your indoor garden, and in turn, will help you to maximise your yields.
How the Daylight Reflector CDM Kit Works:
CDM lamps produce an intense full-spectrum light that plants love, but with a choice of two lamps, which lamp should I choose?
Philips GreenPower 930 Elite Agro CDM Lamp
The GreenPower 930 Elite Agro is perfect for flowering / fruiting as it has a very high PPF (photosynthetic photon flux) level. PPF levels quantify the useable plant light that will impact plant growth.
Philips MasterColour 942 Daylight CDM Lamp
We recommend using the MasterColour 942 Daylight during veg growth. It gives off a crisp, white light, that delivers accelerated growth rates, good branching and short internodes. Using a properly optimised veg lamp will keep your plants shorter and will help you to use your grow space more efficiently.
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. To learn more about our light spectrum graphs and how they affect your plant, check out our blog.
The Daylight reflector is the logical choice for growers looking for a quality closed-end reflector. It's a smaller, modified version of the popular Supernova reflector that's been specifically designed to get the best out of CDM lamps. It features a highly reflective, dimpled surface in a double-parabolic shape along with reflective closed-ends to get as much light as possible towards your plants. It's made with quality materials and comes with the same pedigree as the Supernova, which has been a customer favourite for years.
We offer a choice between the Maxibright Daylight and the Sol-Digital SuperBRIGHT ballast. Both are excellent ballasts that will drive Philips CDM lamps efficiently and effectively, but the Sol-Digital ballast comes with some interesting features that give it the edge, including ignition control, which prevents surges and spikes, and automatic frequency adjustment, which maintains a constant output from the lamp during input power fluctuations. Both feature soft start technology, to reduce inrush current, and intelligent circuit protection to keep your grow room safe and give you peace of mind. You won’t go wrong with either.
