SunKing Parabolic - Silver Reflector

The SunKing Parabolic has an incredibly even light spread and a design that produces low heat levels directly under the lamp, meaning that it can be lowered further than is often possible when using conventional reflectors without burning the tops of plants.

  • Superb, uniform light spread
  • Constructed from premium grade components
  • Eliminates hotspots
  • Kettle lead for simple connection to ballasts
  • Vented top section to reduce heat build-up
  • Can be kept closer to the top of the canopy than standard reflectors
  • Highly reflective hammer-tone finish
  • Can be used with both CFLs and HID lamps

Contains:

8 x reflector leaf panels, 1 x bag of assorted nuts bolts and washers, 1 x E40 lamp holder, 1 x top plate

(bulb and ballast supplied separately)

How the SunKing Parabolic Reflector Works:

The SunKing Parabolic is a curved reflector that houses your choice of HID lamp via its supplied E40 lamp holder. What marks out the SunKing from cheap alternatives on the market is the high-quality feel of its components - the SunKing is engineered from materials that won't degrade quickly (reducing efficiency) like those of its competitors, delivering excellent results consistently over long periods of time. Unlike most other reflectors, the lamp in this unit is mounted vertically and the majority of its output is directed sideways towards curved surfaces and reflected back down towards the canopy. This method creates a more uniform spread of light than when using horizontally mounted lamps. Naturally, an even light spread leads to a more even canopy, adding consistency when growing larger numbers of plants in a given area. These effects are all enhanced greatly by the SunKing's 'hammer-tone' finish, which helps eliminate hot-spots, an issue that occurs when light is too highly concentrated in a particular area.

It also features vents around the lamp holder to allow heat to escape through the top of the reflector. This, combined with the reflector's open design, means that temperatures directly under the lamp are much lower than those under other reflectors, meaning that the SunKing can be positioned closer to the top of plants without causing burning.

The SunKing is supplied with a 375cm power cable with an IEC (kettle lead) connection. The IEC adapter is used to connect to a ballast of a suitable output for the lamp fitted to the reflector.

Using the SunKing Parabolic Reflector:

To assemble the SunKing, lay the top plate on a large flat surface so that the vents are facing downwards. The leaves can then be fitted over the outer edge of the plate, one at a time. Note that each leaf should overlap the previous leaf as you secure the 'M4' nuts, bolts and washers in place. Gently bend the reflector leaves if necessary to enable the nuts and bolts to be fitted easily. Repeat the process until the reflector is complete. Once done, turn the reflector over and use the 4 sets of ‘M5’ nuts and bolts to secure the E40 lamp holder in place.

The SunKing Parabolic Reflector is designed for use with any vertically mounted HPS or MH lamp. Simply hang the reflector over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls, jack chains or rope ratchets. Holding your lamp with a clean cloth, insert it into the E40 bulb-holder and screw it in very firmly.

Plug the lead into an appropriate ballast for HPS/MH type bulbs or an IEE (kettle type) mains lead for fluorescent type bulbs and switch on.

Warning: 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.
