Advantages CMH grow light
- Save on your electricity bill and produce the same yields;
- Provides full spectrum light that plants love;
- Less heat emission than comparable HPS lamps;
- Displays 1.9 umols PPF per watt - amazingly efficient.
for use Screw the adapter into your current reflector E40 fitting and screw the CDM lamp into the converter in your reflector as tightly as possible. Use a clean, dry cloth. Tighten the lamp as tight as possible. Failure to do so may result in sparks between the center contact of the lamp and the lamp holder. This will cause the solder contact on the bottom of the lamp to melt, causing damage and making it unusable. Therefore, make sure that the lamp is clean and completely free of fingerprints. Finally, hang your reflector at the correct height for the CMH lamp. Plug it into an electrical outlet and turn it on. The ballast will start up and illuminate the lamp.
The wattage of your ballast MUST match the wattage of the lamp you are using. If this deviates, there is a high risk of fire or equipment damage. In addition, never use an HPS or MH ballast with CMH lamps.
