BALLAST

Using a grow light is extremely simple, in fact it will be enough to buy an excellent quality grow light with a full spectrum of light and as close as possible to that of the sun and place it at the right distance from the plants, and then see them grow and bloom at their best.

A grow light is an extremely powerful light with a very broad spectrum of light similar to the natural one of the sun. The grow light will allow plants grown in grow boxes to face their life cycle and be able to produce as much as possible.

The perfect distance between the plants and the grow light is around 30-40cm for a 600W HPS, CMH and LED grow system. However, some types of grow lights will need different distances, for example CFL lamps will need to be placed at a shorter distance.

In our grow light catalog there are numerous models and brands of world-class grow lights. In our opinion, the best grow lights on the market are LED grow lights, in particular those of Pure Led are among the best in the world for indoor cultivation.

During the vegetative phase of plants grown indoors, a cold white light from the grow light is required, in fact it will allow the plants to grow at their best. While for the flowering period you will need a red light. But there are types of lamps that are perfect for the entire pint life cycle, such as LED grow lights.

WHAT IS A BALLAST?

HID grow light require a special power source called Ballast. You can choose electromagnetic ballasts or electronic newer, but the ballast must meet the power requirements of grow light. As these are electricity, water and heat, it is not possible to select low-priced products from quality questionable. There are two main types of ballasts that meet the needs of growers indoor. Old school magnetic ballasts have coils of the transformer and capacitive inductances that regulate the voltage. They have been around for decades and their main advantage is their low price. Unfortunately, dissipates a lot of energy in the form of heat, resulting in increased energy consumption and high temperatures in the cultivation areas.
