Multi-Wattage ballasts will properly drive a 250w, 400w, or 600w lamp to ANSI specifications. For example, set the switch to 400w, insert a 400w lamp into your socket and the ballast will operate the 400w lamp correctly. Our ballast will similarly operate 250w, 400w, 600w or 1000w lamps. Depends on ballast model you have.
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.
