Adjusta-Watt E-Lite 1000 watt 400 volt Switchable Digital Ballast
A sleek and powerful 1000w 400 Volt professional grade ballast at a hobbyist price!
Super HPS technology is taking the growing communitity by storm. That's because 400v ballasts deliver a greater light output than standard ballasts, while consuming the same amount of power! The E-Lite ballast is designed to run ultra efficent 1000w DE (double ended) lamps to great effect. But, please not that the electrical connector on the E-Lite is designed for use with Sol Digital 1000w 400v reflectors. If you're looking for the latest lighting technology at an affordable price, then you'll be hard-pressed to find a better solution.

How this Ballast Works:
Standard mains power from your socket is rated at 230 volts; this ballast bumps up the voltage level to 400v and runs your lamps at a higher frequency, making it more efficient per watt of power. Super HPS delivers a superior spectral output, with excellent levels of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR). This results in faster growth rates, more resilient crops and bigger yields.
This ballast is over 94% efficient at all output wattages, so it runs nice cool (below 25C under normal conditions) and it doesn't require an internal fan, ensuring that it also stays quiet. Special attention has been paid to making a product that produces almost no RF interference. It will not interfere with the signal reception of televisions, radios or wireless broadband. The E-Lite ballast features a “soft-start" system which does not produce a surge when it starts a lamp. This means that several Adjusta-Watt ballasts can be started at the same time without a surge tripping out the mains.
A host of other feutures are included in this ballast which can be found in here on the Adjusta - Watt 1000w 400v ballast PDF file.
How to Use the Adjusta - Watt E-Lite Ballast:
Although the Adjusta-Watt 600 Watt Switchable Digital Ballast runs fairly cool in use, it should still be located on a flat, firm, surface (not carpet) and in a well-ventilated location. It should never be covered and there should be no combustible items in the vicinity just in case. Connect the input lead of your reflector to the output lead of the ballast ensuring the cable is not pulled tight and does not come into contact with anything hot (e.g. lamp, reflector, ballast). Ensure that your lamp is tightly fitted into the double ended lamp holder and that your reflector is at the correct height.
Use the power-output switch to select the desired wattage and plug your ballast into the wall. The ballast will start-up and light the lamp.
In the event of a fault, e.g. a faulty lamp or high ballast temperature, the ballast will go into protection mode. Once the problem has been rectified, the ballast will automatically reset and restart. The Adjusta - Watt also has “hot-restrike" protection: in the event of an interruption to the mains supply, the ballast will test the
temperature of the lamps every 60 seconds and only re-strike them once they are cool enough to do so.
