Why do I need a ballast?
A ballast in its simplest form is a device for switching high inductive loads, such as those found with High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting. Usually the control unit is combined with a timer unit (either internally or remotely) to manage the cycles required to turn the lighting onoff. When using HID lighting you should use a control unit to manage your lighting onoff cycles as a domestic timer unit cannot withstand the high inductive loads. Plugging HID lighting directly into a domestic timer unit will cause the timer to prematurely fail and could lead to a potential electrical hazard. This will also eventually result in your lights being fused in the on or off state. Hortiking Control Units are designed and assembled to the highest standards with these safety reasons solely in mind.
Are digital ballasts more efficient?
Yes, but only very slightly. Currently, the horticultural industry is swamped by claims from digital ballast manufactures that their ballasts are significantly more efficient than conventional magnetic core and coil ballasts. In real terms, currently there is no digital ballast on the planet that is more than 3% more efficient than a good quality traditional magnetic type. The main difference is the increased lumens.
“Very good for if you need to light a lot of bulbs at once ;-) and if you want to be the brightest house in the street without the whole lot of bulbs blowing at once ha ha ha ha ha.”
“Perfect for my poly tunnel of vegetables. Low heat, extra light, low weight, quieter and more compact than any other ballast I’ve used. Fast delivery and arrived in good packaging. I bought two.”
“Good ballast great customer service, bought 1 of these ballasts had a problem with it got in touch with the company and the who sent me a replacement right away would recommend this company.”
