Made For The Heavy Load Of HID Lighting
- High Quality Timer
- Designed to take high loads
- Can be used with a 600w ballast
- 24 hours timer
- No need to use contactor
- Dust cover to protect timer
The Lumii Heavy Duty Plug In Lighting Timer is a high-quality timer unit which has been specifically designed to take high loads! It has no problem dealing with the inductive loads produced by 600 Watt ballasts, which means no separate contactor is required, saving you money! It has switching operations within a 24 hour period, a dust cover and can be used for 600w ballast or up to 6 200w CFL’s. The relatively high levels of power used by HID grow lights can damage normal timers if they are not protected by a separate contactor. This Heavy Duty Lighting Timer has been designed specifically to withstand these power levels to offer a fantastic value solution for single light grow rooms. Rated to be able to control up to 1x 600 Watt Light, it will allow the owners of single light grow rooms to accurately control their light cycle without needing to invest in more expensive equipment.
Why cant I use a standard household timer?
Most 24 Hour timers are not designed to allow high current switching and normally fail very quickly when used with HID lighting loads , due to this high power relays are normally used to switch the power to the lighting system so the timer is only used for control. The large startup current is caused by a number of factors. Firstly there is a very large initial inrush current drawn by the ballast unit, this is only present for a fraction of a second. Secondly, a situation known as Lamp Rectification, rectification occurs when the two ends of the lamp heat up at different rates causing a DC current to flow in the lamp this DC current causes saturation of the ballast core which reduces the impedance of the ballast causing more current to flow through the lamp, this situation only lasts for a few seconds whilst the lamp is warming up and stops once lamp operating temperature is reached.

Lumii Green LED Headtorch
This Lumii Green LED Head Torch is both convenient and practical. It has a hands free design, is lightweight and compact and can be tilted to focus the light where you need it most. It has 6 high intensity green LED bulbs that can be used with three different lighting options full, partial and strobe. Gardeners primarily use green grow lights to water, navigate the growing area, or inspect plants during the dark cycle because the green lights do not interrupt the plant’s “night” period. Green light mimics moonlight, so even if a plant is aware of the light, it does not trigger photosynthesis or photoperiod hormones. Green lights are also used to inspect plants, since seeing discoloration or health problems may be missed under red light.
This lamp uses 3 x AAA batteries (not included).
