The SLM Electronic Ballast is a professional, small-sized ballast that’s efficient and safe to use. Your plants need a high amount of light to grow indoors, that’s why you need to use high-power lighting equipment. The bulbs are responsible for transmitting that power in the form of light, so that your plants absorb it, but the ballast is the device that routes the energy to the bulb and has much to do with the amount of light that is emitted. Its installation is very easy, everything is connected all with Plug & Play cables. If your reflector doesn’t have this connection, you’ll need an extra cable to be able to hook it to the ballast. When using a magnetic ballast, the light produced by the bulb flickers. The human eye can’t see it but it’s quite noticeable simply with your mobile phone’s camera. With an electronic ballast your plants receive a continuous light, so they receive a 30% more light than with magnetic ones. It also consumes less energy, so you can reduce the invoice of the light, especially when growing your plants at 18 hours. With the SLM Ballast, you can grow your plants obtaining better results from your crop. Since its dimmable, you can change the power output so that your plants receive more or less light, depending on the stage in which they are, the grow room temperature or the available space. It’s usually used according to the stages of the crop. It can be set to 250W, 400W, 600W, and Super Lumens (660W).
