How the Maxibright Daylight 315w Horizon Connect Reflector works:
Whilst both small and lightweight this reflector packs a punch when it comes to spreading your full spectrum CDM light, it's designed especially to throw light to the far reaches of your growing area with one reflector capable of dispersing light up to 2.4 meters in width! The reflector also avoids downward heat spots associated with many reflectors out there, the design of this reflector ensures your indoor garden will be evenly and brightly lit in all areas and at all angles because of it wide angled design. Adding to the spreading ability of the reflector is the fact you can mount your ballast directly on the reflector unit, giving you more ground space and more importantly from a safety point of view holding the power leads aloft above head height, no more wires going across the floor, no tripping hazard to avoid.
Although it can be used as a standalone reflector you get a far superior benefit by mounting the Maxibright Daylight 315w Horizon Connect Reflector between two HID lights. Typically we'd recommend two Adjust- A-Wings grow systems mounted side by side with the Horizon Reflector in the center, that way your getting the added benefit's of both the HID lighting and the CDM's special spectrum. Because of the CDM's unique spectral output you will include more UVA and UVB radiation over your plants, this will encourage more resins to be produced
as a natural defense mechanism.

How to use the Maxibright Daylight 315w Horizon Connect Reflector
Simply hang the reflector over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls, rope ratchet hangers or jack chain. Always screw the lamp into the lamp-holder in your reflector as tightly as possible by gripping the lamp with a clean, dry cloth. If the lamp is not screwed in as tightly as possible, arcing can occur between the centre contact of the lamp and the lamp-holder. This melts the solder contact on the bottom of the lamp, causing damage and making it un-usable. Make sure that the lamp is clean and completely free of fingerprints and other contaminants. Finally, make sure that your reflector is hung at the correct height.
Mount the light in the center of the grow space, remember the Horizon spreads light incredibly well to all
areas of the growing area and can't be adjusted to focus light down so it needs to sit ideally in between two other lighting fixtures or dead center of the space.
PLEASE NOTE: The 315w CDM lamps need to be bedded in as follows: on first illumination the lamp needs to be run continuously for a minimum of 15 minutes. This will allow the metals within the lamp to fuse correctly.
FAILURE TO DO THIS WILL RESULT IN LAMP FAILURE!
If the above is not adhered to, lamp warranty claims will be void.
Warning: When CDM HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamps are switched on they run extremely hot. As with all HID lamps 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.
