Omega X-Pro 1000w / 400v DE - Wide Angle Grow Light
Cost-Effective 400 Volt Lighting, Featuring a Wide Angle Reflector
Get professional-grade results without breaking the bank! The X-Pro fixture, from Omega, delivers many of the features that you'd expect from top-end lighting fixtures, but for a fraction of the cost. It incorporates 400v technology, which is utilised by professional horticulturalists to max out yields, and it comes with a reflector that delivers an exceptional light spread. The wide angle version gets closer to your plants by pushing light outwards instead of straight down, making it ideal for tighter spaces.
- Exceptional value for money - perfect for those on a budget
- Utilises 400v DE technology developed for use in greenhouses by professional horticulturalists
- Puts out more light than standard 230-volt lighting
- Choose from Omega HPS and Metal Halide lamps, or the Philips Greenpower for even bigger yields
- Includes full fixture and your choice of lamp
- No need to replace the lamps for a full year
- Comes with a wide angle reflector - great for getting closer to your plants
- Also available with a closed reflector (greater for mounting your lights higher up)
- Features four output settings - 600w, 750w, 1000w and 1150w (boost)
1 x Omega X-Pro 1000w (400v DE) grow light with standard (closed) reflector
Use the dropdown menu to select your lamp. Choose HPS, metal halide or one of each.
How the Omega X-Pro Grow Light Works
The Omega X-Pro is a complete fixture that combines a ballast, reflector and lamp in one unit:
400 Volt Ballast
The ballast inside this fixture converts a 230-volt mains supply to run 400-volt lamps. As a result, its lighting output is greater than regular 230-volt lighting equipment, despite using the same power. This allows you to produce bigger and better yields for the same cost. A real no brainer!
It features four output settings: 600w, 750w, 1000w and 1150w overdrive mode. This functionality allows you to tailor your lighting output to match your environment. For instance, if your grow room gets too hot, you can turn the output level down to reduce temperatures and keep plants photosynthesising. This is a much better option than letting temps get out of hand (which will stunt growth altogether).
The X-Pro comes fitted with a wide angle reflector. This reflector delivers an exceptional light spread, pushing more light out to the sides, allowing you to get your lamp closer to the canopy without causing burning. When combined with reflective sidewalls, wide angle reflectors hit plants from multiple directions, facilitating even development across the plant. You also get the same effect when running multiple units side by side. If you want to mount the light higher up, then we recommend opting for the standard (closed) reflector which directs light straight down. By getting your lighting closer, you'll make your indoor garden more efficient, utilising the energy from your lamp more effectively. As always, though, never lower your lights to the point where it negatively impacts the environment!
The X-Pro is compatible with double-ended 1000w / 400v lamps. Use the dropdown menu to choose between Omega HPS, Omega Metal Halide and Philips Greenpower options.
The metal halide lamp produces an intense full-spectrum light that mimics the sun. We recommend the halide for use during the vegetative stages or as a supplementary light. If you're looking for a standalone flowering lamp then the HPS still beats it, thanks to its high concentrations of light in the red areas of the spectrum. When you combine the two, however, you get the best of boths worlds: the HPS piles on weight while the halide fills in the spectral gaps, increasing the quality.
We've also given you the option to upgrade to Philips Greenpower lamps, which have proven themselves over many years in professional greenhouses the world over. The Greenpower will deliver bigger yields than its Omega counterparts, due to the fact that it runs at a greater intensity, easily justifying the extra initial spend with plenty of extra produce at harvest time.
How to Use the X-Pro
Simply hang the combined ballast & reflector over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls or jack chain. Fit the lamp by moving the two ceramic sliders, inserting the lamp and moving the sliders back in place (see the diagram below).
Set the power control switch to the desired power output (600 watts, 660 watts, 750 watts, 825 watts, 1000 watts or 1150 watts. Run the lead from the reflector to a standard UK mains outlet or your contactor and switch on.
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 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.
