How to Use the SolisTek 600w Digital Ballast:
Although the SolisTek 600w 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 your lamp is tightly screwed into the bulb-holder and that your reflector is at the correct height.
Use the power-output switch to select the desired output wattage. 400-watt lamps can be used at 400 watts only whereas 600-watt lamps can be used at 660 watts or turned down to 440 or 400 watts. You can also use SolisTek Boost to overdrive the lamp to 660 watts. Once the correct output wattage has been selected, connect the mains plug into an electrical outlet socket and switch on. 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 can be restarted by pressing the reset button. The SolisTek 600w Digital Ballast has built in 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.
Note: The SolisTek Matrix 600 watt Adjustable Digital Ballast runs at 230 volts only.
