With the new LUMii® DIGITA ECO Ballast less wattage is lost in the transmission of power from the wall socket to the lamp. Better power management means more light to the plant and less energy consumed. The quality of the light produced is also a lot more stable thanks to LUMii®’s power management software built into the unit that monitors for lamp degradation and power fluctuation from the grid, this produces a higher hertz rate and optimum light levels. The lamp is very quick to ignite, using less power at the ignition stage and giving your plants a full spectrum light source within 5 minutes (magnetic ballast technology takes up to 20 minutes for the lamp to come up to full brightness).
The LUMii® DIGITA ECO Ballast is one of the quietest ballasts on the market with no hum or vibration (this is common with magnetic or fan cooled electronic technology).
Ultra compact and cooler operation
The LUMii® DIGITA ECO Ballast is one of the smallest and coolest running available, this has been achieved by creating a component set that does not generate a lot of heat. Less heat and a well-designed body shell means you can have less airspace inside the body which allows the design to be smaller. In addition, less heat means more efficient use of power and better environmental control.
The LUMii® DIGITA ECO Ballast is very lightweight, the 600 watt is only 3kg compared with 8kg for a 600 watt magnetic ballast.
The LUMii® DIGITA ECO Ballast has safety features built in that protects the unit’s circuitry, if a short is detected. When the ballast detects an abnormal input or output voltage, due to an old or damaged lamp, it will not attempt to ignite the bulb.
The LUMii® DIGITA ECO Ballast is resin covered on the inside, helping to protect from dust ingress to the components and creating even heat distribution, meaning there is no fan. This means the product is more robust and has increased longevity over fan based ballasts.
