The 600W Electronic Ballast is supplied as a stand-alone ballast with a flying IEC lead so you can add any reflector fitted with an IEC socket to start growing.

The ballast features both dim and boost functions, having the ability to control the light output from the lamp. There are two dimmable options (250w & 400w) and a ‘super-lumens’ boost option (600w+Boost) which is on average an extra 10% increase in output.

*Lumii are part of HydroGarden – The UKs largest hydroponic wholesaler - this current model does not contain the Lumii branding as it is first generation. Following stock will have Lumii branding.

Setting Up Your Unit

The unit is designed to operate in a dry environment only, do not use in atmospheric conditions that exceed the following: Max Ambient Temperature: 70c, Min Ambient Temperature: -10C, Max Humidity RH:85%

When you purchase this unit it is easy to set up:

  1. Unpack your ballast and plug the power cord into the socket market 'INPUT'.
  2. Set the dimmer knob at 100% power for your chosen lamp first. Once the unit has warmed up ( after 10 - 15 mins ) you can adjust the power.
  3. Hang your selected reflector in the chosen location. Find a suitable location for your ballast box. Although the ballast is fully enclosed, we recommend that it should NOT be located in any position where it will come into contact with water or nutrients.
  4. Carefully screw & compatible lamp into the reflector, ensuring full contact. Ensure the lamp wattage matches the ballast wattage. Always have dry hands when locating the lamp, We recommend handling the lamp with a cloth.
  5. Plug the ballast into a timer unit, switch on, if the unit fails to ignite the lamp, switch off at the mains, remove the lamp and repeat steps 2 and 3.

Please not you will know when the ballast is on as you will notice a slight hum, it can take up to 10 minutes to ignite a lamp depending on the type and age of the lamp you are using.

Always use this unit in conjunction with a RCD ( Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker ). Do not switch on the unit for 10 - 15 minutes if you have disconnected the power supply for any reason, this eliminates any unnecessary wear on the components.

We recommend using a 600W lamp for 600W dimmer settings, a 400W lamp for 400W dimmer and a 250W lamp for 250W dimmer settings. This will give the best spectral output and be more efficient than simply dimming a 600W lamp down to 400W.

Never boost a lower wattage lamp to a higher lamp setting.

Do not set a 600W lamp to 1000W settings. Do not set a 400W lamp to 600W settings. Do not set a 250W lamp to 400W settings.
