How the SolisTek SolisMax56 Reflector, Matrix Ballast, Remote and 2K Lamp Kit works:
The SolisTek SolisMax56 Double Ended Reflector is perfect if you need to illuminate a large area, using its 95%, highly reflective German aluminium. Coupled with the SolisTek 600w 2K HPS Lamp they both work brilliantly as one standalone flowering grow light. We've also included the SolisTek Matrix Ballast and Remote Control, allowing you to control your lamp and ballast to suit your grow space. The ballast is back lit green with a large LCD display, so it won't disturb your plants when they are in flower and features Solis "boost" technology which over drives your lamp but preserves lamp integrity and creates the high levels of PAR levels for your plant to enjoy. The SolisTek Matrix Ballast also utilises SenseSmart, which checks 8 different factors before igniting your lamp, protecting your lamp and ballast from power surges or high/low voltage issues. The SolisTek Remote Control gifts you easy lighting control, cycle between lighting regimes and power output levels at the touch of a button, from up to 20 metres away possibly from the comfort of your arm chair.

When Do I Switch Between Lamps?
SolisTek have created a range of lamps, harnessing a spread of lighting spectrums to compliment every period of a plants life cycle. From the earliest seedlings stages, through to late flower, helping you produce the best possible results every time. The veg weeks and flowwring weeks illustrated below are for guidence only.
Veg Week 1-8: Begin with the SolisTek 6K Blue Lamp for your seedlings, rooted cuttings and young plants, as this lamp promotes bushy, dense growth with tight internodes. The SolisTek 6K Blue is high in blue, purple and green light, making it excellent for all your vegging needs. Use until a couple of weeks before you're ready to flower (depending on how long you're vegging for, typically 4-8 weeks).
Flowering Week 1-2: Two weeks into flowering switch to the SolisTek 4K Daylight Lamp, which is higher in green and yellow light whilst still containing large amounts of purple and blue light, making it a full spectrum lighting source similar to sunlight. The SolisTek 4K Daylight still promotes healthy, upward growth while increasing essential oil content as the first flower sets form.
Flowering Week 3-7: Switch to the SolisTek 2K HPS Lamp as your primary light for most of the flowering period. High in yellow, orange and red light the SolisTek 2k HPS Lamp stimulates rapid, heavy flowering formation.
Flowering Week 8-9: One or two weeks prior to harvest switch out the SolisTek 2k HPS Lamp and replace it with the SolisTek 10K Finisher Lamp. The SolisTek 10K Finisher Lamp has a unique spectrum. Very high in UV and deep blue light its especially useful when used on plants deep into flower, as it promotes increased essential oil production on your heavy-set flowers, further adding quality to your end product.
How to use the SolisTek SolisMax56 Reflector, Matrix Ballast, Remote and 2K Lamp Kit
Simply hang the SolisTek SolisMax 56 Reflector over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls, rope ratchets or jack chain. Holding your lamp with a clean cloth insert the SolisTek 600w Lamp into the double ended lamp holder in the SolisTek SolisMax 56 Reflector and insert the end displayed below closest to the ballast then press it in firmly. Set the power control switch to the desired power output and run the 2m power lead from the ballast to a standard UK mains outlet or your contactor and switch on.
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.
SolisTek recommends that the reflector is changed regularly to maintain garden efficiency because the reflectivity of the surface does degrade a little over time. We would recommend every 1-2 years.
Warning 1: When it is time to change out the lamp, make sure that it is replaced with another SolisTek HPS or MH lamp, these lamps are purpose made for the SolisTek SolisMax56 Double Ended Reflector and SolisTek Matrix Ballast, as they run more efficiently when combined.
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.
Note: The SolisTek Grow Light runs at 230 volts not 400 volts. Only use SolisTek 230v double ended lamps with this grow light.
