Lumatek 250W MH/HPS Electronic Ballast 120V/240V Super Lumens
Available in 250 watt or 400 watt versions

The Lumatek Electronic Ballast produces more lumens generated per watt of electricity consumed losing fewer watts from power supply to lamp - This results in an amazing power factor of 99%+. Light meter readings indicate that the Lumatek ballast is up to 30% brighter than common core and coil magnetic ballasts. The Lumatek is 10-15% brighter than other brands of digital ballast on the market. Simply stated, the Lumatek Digital Ballast is the brightest ballast in the industry, hands down. Another great feature of the Lumatek Electronic Ballast is that the ballast powers different bulb types. A Lumatek electronic ballast runs both Metal Halide or HPS (HQI or mogul base) bulbs on the same ballast.

Electronic Ballast vs E-Ballast
The Lumatek ballast is an E-ballast, unlike other brands on the market, which are actually electronic ballasts. E-ballasts use a microprocessor similar to a component found in a personal computer. This microprocessor allows the E-ballast to run either halide or sodium lamps, to switch between 50 and 60 hertz, to make adjustments for the type of bulb it is running, and even to compensate for degraded lamps by increasing its output. Electronic ballasts have a constant output and cannot make adjustments or changes. They will light a MH lamp; but quickly cause it to degrade, thus shortening the lamp`s lifespan.

Lumatek ballasts are programmed to allow for a `soft start` and do not require an initial power surge to start the ballast. This allows end users to start multiple ballasts simultaneously without blowing a breaker. The ballast will also detect a short in the wiring or a defective lamp. It simply shuts itself off, letting the user know that something is wrong. This should be kept in mind if you have a customer whose ballast keeps shutting down. In most cases, there is a problem with the output wiring.

One of the most unique features of all Lumatek Ballast's is the Smart Volt feature, which means that it can run on 120V or 240V by simply changing power cords. All Lumatek ballasts come standard with a 6ft. 120V detachable power cords. Purchase the 240V power cord separately to run on 240V. The lamp cord to the reflector is sold seperately, however if you are purchasing a Sun Supply Reflector that is pre-wired with a lamp cord and socket this ballast will be compatible with the reflector and a separate lamp cord and socket is not needed.

ALL Lumatek™ ballasts come wired with Sunlight Supply's standard female lamp cord receptacle that accepts their patented male lamp cord, making these units compatible with all Sun System®, Reef Optix® & LumenMax® reflectors. You can also separately purchase a lamp cord with socket assembly.

Full 5 year warranty (3 years full and two years pro-rated).
