DE Stealth Parabolic 1000w Grow Light Kit
Professional-Grade Lighting at Hobbyist Prices
This kit delivers 400v Super HPS technology for a truly breath-taking price. Really, nothing else in this price bracket comes close! You're getting three very highly specced pieces of professional growing equipment: the Adjusta-Watt e-Lite Ballast, the Sol-Digital Super HPS 400v DE 1000w lamp and the DE Stealth Parabolic Reflector. When put together they'll perform on a par with systems built by the likes of Gavita and Dimlux, delivering an enhanced lumen output, happier, healthier plants and most excitingly of all, yield increases of anything up to 20%.
- High-Frequency Super HPS Lighting
- Delivers heavier yields than standard 230v lighting
- Fully switchable - like having three systems in one: 400w, 600w & 1000w with Overdrive (1100w)
- Optimised to run at different output levels without compromising spectral output
- The most efficient HPS lamp on the market
- Extremely high levels of photosynthetically active radiation - PAR Value 2050 umol/m2/s
- Fast warm-up and re-strike times
- Ballast with 95% efficiency rating
- Thermostatically controlled fans that keep the ballast cool at all times
- Smart Start Ignition Control deals with inrush current when running multiple systems
- Soft Start eases in lamps over a period of 3 to 5 minutes
- RF shielding to prevent interference with radio / broadband equipment
- 400v adjustable digital ballast that's 30% more efficient than typical magnetics
- Certified 95% reflective aluminium
- V-shaped hanging attachments for hanging the reflector easily

How the Parabolic Super HPS Kit Works:
400 Volt Super HPS technology is much more efficient than standard HPS, running at a higher frequency with a higher voltage and a lower current, producing a greater lumen output for the same power consumption. The Adjusta-Watt Super HPS kit offers you this professional-grade technology for a price that's within the budgets of most hobbyists! Expect to see an increase in yield of anything up to 20% over a typical HPS set-up!
Adjusta-Watt e-Lite Digital Ballast 1000w
As you open the e-Lite's box, it's immediately obvious that the team at Adjusta-Watt have put a considerable amount of effort into its design. It's incredibly compact (23.5cm x 14cm x 5.5cm), elegantly styled and features a build quality that instils confidence the second you pick it up and handle it. Internally, the e-Lite works by converting a standard 230 volt UK power supply to 400v in order to drive the Super HPS lamp. It has two thermostatically controlled fans that keep the ballast running within the correct temperature ranges at all times, helping to deliver a 95% efficiency level.
It comes with a Smart Start Integrated Ignition Control System which deals with electrical spikes when switching multiple systems, starting ballasts on the same circuit at slightly different times. The Soft Start feature gradually eases light levels up over a 3-5 minute period, helping to prolong the life of the lamp.
As a fully adjustable ballast, it's capable of driving the Super HPS lamp at settings of 400w, 600w, 1000w & 1100w. Read more on how this kit excels with this functionality in the lamp overview below.
Sol-Digital Super HPS 400v De 1000w
This double-ended (DE)1000w lamp has a ridiculously high PAR rating at 2050 umol/m2/s. What this essentially means is that the plants underneath it will be bathed in high levels of useable plant light (PAR stands for photosynthetically active radiation). This in turn produces a long list of obvious benefits - increased growth rates, overall improvements in health and vigour and greatly increased final weights. As is the case with the other lamps in the Sol-Digital range, the 1000w Super HPS has been specially optimised for use with adjustable digital ballasts. The e-Lite features four output settings, effectively giving you three systems in one: a 400 watt system, a 600 watt system and a 1000 watt system complete with overdrive feature (1100 watts). While other lamps often lose efficiency and produce a weaker spectral output when turned down below their rated output, Sol-Digital lamps are optimised to maintain a consistent spectrum, regardless of the setting, losing little in terms of efficiency, even when dropping right down to 400 watts.
DE Stealth Parabolic Reflector
The Sol-Digital Parabolic has an incredibly even light spread and a design that produces low heat levels directly under the lamp, meaning that it can be lowered further than is usually possible when using conventional reflectors without burning the tops of plants. It's officially certified as 95% reflective, with excellent diffusion levels, and is built to a very high standard, with a branded top plate and V-shaped hangers for attaching your rope ratchets or hangers. The lamp cord is also fully shielded, eliminating the chances of interference with radio or broadband equipment.
Reflector Dimensions: Circumference: 1000mm Depth: 220mm
How to Use the DE Parabolic Reflector 1000W Grow Light Kit:
Clip the lamp carefully into the reflector and hang the unit over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls, jack chain or rope ratchets. Run the lead from the reflector to the ballast, which should be placed on flat, firm surface (not carpet). Plug the ballast into a standard UK mains outlet or your contactor and switch on. When running multiple lights, we strongly advise using the following power distribution units.
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. Using a standard 230V 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.
Fitting your Double Ended Lamp
To fit your double ended lamp correctly see the image below
Ensure that you follow manufacturer's guidelines when fitting your double ended lamp, as incorrect fitting will result in damage. This damage is NOT covered under the manufacturer's warranty.
