PAR-TEK LIGHTING 1000W Digital Ballast operates on either 120v or 240v power supply. The PT1000FC Ballast is on the Dimmable Design Platform which operates a 1000W Lamp with the capabilities to DIM the lamp when less light is needed. PT1000FC can fire both High Pressure Sodium & Metal Halide Bulbs. This ballast can also fire Double Ended DE lamps in both MH & HPS as well, Ballast operates at High Frequency of 106KHz. Don't for get SUPER LUMENS which will give 10% more light at the flick of a switch. Optional settings are Super Lumens, 100%, 75%, & 60%.
Dimmable Ballast design can only run one rated wattage lamp. Dial in a four phase controller to set output of ballast to 100%, 75%, 60% OR Super Lumen which will boost light output more than 10%. Make sure to run your lamp continuously at each setting for 10 mintues before changing to other settings. Rapidly switching the settings may cause harm to lamp.
Dimmable ballasts will dim down the rated lamp wattage for your particular ballast model to LOWER wattage only. For example with PT1000FC, dial the knob to 60% setting and the ballast will dim down input and output power both to 60%, which will save you energy cost. You cannot increase power of 600W lamp to 1000W setting "Over-Driven" will severely damage your lamp.
Super Lumens setting can increase your rated lamp power by approximately 10% at the flick of a switch. That is 10% more Lumen output to your garden. More Lumen Output = HIGHER YIELD
When grouped together using PAR-TEK LIGHTING ballasts, they will separately and randomly ignite lamps within 7 seconds to reduce inrush current.
High / Low Voltage, Lightening Strike/ Inrush Current / Pulse Group, Over Current, Brown Out.
Open Circuit, Short Circuit, End of Lamp Life, Ignition Failure, Over Voltage, Rectifying Effect Protection.
During operation, inner heat will dissipate through aluminum casing. When case temperature rises to 85?, Ballast will gradually reduce power to 80%. When case temperature reach to 90?, Ballast will stop working until it cools down to 70?, then returns to full power status.
