1000w Lighting Kits
What is a 1000w Lighting Kit?
Do I Need a 1000w Lighting Kit?
1000w Lighting Kits are the most potent kits available using just one ballast. These kits allow you to produce higher yields than with a normal HPS system.
The ballasts that you can find at La Huerta Grow Shop allow you to reduce the strength of your bulbs to 600 - 660w during the growth period, allowing you to save on electricity when your plants don’t need that much power. Plus, once your plants enter the bloom stage you can use the dimmer to increase yield an additional 10%.
How Many Plants Can I Grow Using a 1000w Lighting Kit
By using a 1000w lighting kit you can cover over 150x150 cm, or in other words, this type of lighting system allows you to obtain 1kg or more of buds.
What is Double Ended (DE) technology?
Double-ended systems offer:
- Light stability.
- Faster start-up.
- Between 10 and 25% more light using the same electricity as a HPS lamp with just one socket.
- No wires inside the bulb removes any type of shadowing that may occur.
Electronic Ballast Advantages
- They allow you to adjust the wattage when growing.
- The Superlumen function can increase the max power by 10%.
- It has technology which allows it to detect the heat of the bulbs so they don’t turn on again without having cooled down enough, for example after a power outage – this increases the bulbs’ lifespan.
- Protects from high and low tension.
What 1000w Lighting Kit Should I Pick?
These kits are designed as a complete product to be used together without changing any components.
The ballasts in each kit are designed for the accompanying bulbs, which makes for less interference than normal kits.
