Not all ballasts are created equal

There are no set standards for manufacturers who design electronic grow lighting ballasts higher than 400 watts. There are also no manufacturing standards for double-ended lamps. Therefore each manufacturer can design products to their own specifications instead of one that is shared by the entire industry.

This has caused compatibility issues between different lamp and ballast manufacturers.

EYE HORTILUX designed its double ended lamps to closely mimic the specifications* of the best DE lamp brands on the market in order for our lamps to work in their fixtures. We then designed and optimized our DE ballast to run our lamp.

Our standard 1000W DE HPS lamp is compatible with all popular systems.
