How the Sol-Digital 600w Metal Halide Lamp Works:
The Sol-Digital 600w Metal Halide Lamp is a single-spectrum metal halide lamp with a high level of useable plant light, often referred to as photosynthetically active radiation or PAR. The lamp mostly produces light in the blue part of the spectrum for fast vegetative growth and very short internodes, helping to eliminate stretching issues. As very little orange/red light is produced, it is not recommended for heavy flowering. It will however make exceptional supplementary lighting, broadening the spectrum of your HPS lamp. Expect greater levels of essential oil production and tougher, healthier plants.
How to Use the Sol-Digital 600w Metal Halide Lamp:
Hold with a clean cloth and screw the lamp into the E40 bulb-holder fitting of your reflector until it will turn no further. It is important that the lamp is screwed very firmly into the holder. Failure to fit the lamp tightly will cause arcing inside the holder between the centre connector and the contact on the lamp. This will melt the solder contact on the lamp and irreparably damage it. Connect your reflector cable to your 600W HPS ballast. The wattage of your ballast MUST match the wattage of the lamp you are using or there will be a high risk of fires or equipment damage. Ensure the lamp is completely clean and free of dirt, grease and finger-prints etc. before switching it on. Please note – This item is designed to be used with HPS ballasts and should NOT be used with a dedicated MH ballast.
Warning: Once the lamp is switched on it runs 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.
As with all lamps the light output they produce will decrease with use over time. One Stop Grow Shop recommends you replace your lamp regularly to maintain your garden efficiency.
