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. Specifications including lamp length, arc tube size, starting pulse voltage, frequency, and more are measured. We then designed and optimized our DE ballast to run our lamp.

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

Not all ballasts are compatible with our DE Ceramic HPS lamps. Refer to the chart below to see which ballasts have been tested for compatibility with EYE HORTILUX DE CHPS grow lamps.
