Troubleshooting

First Steps: Always Begin With the Following Disconnect main power whenever working on any electrical device. For additional protection you can also disconnect your fixture cord from your ballast (if so equipped).  Allow sufficient time for the lighting system, lamp, and ballast to cool down prior to handling. Refer to the product manual or lamp…

EYE DE Compatible in these Systems

Not all ballasts are created equalThere 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…

Why Our DE Lamps Are Different

Why are Double-ended lamps different than Single-ended?Double Ended (DE) HPS grow lamps are typically used by commercial growers with large spaces and high ceilings. DE HPS grow lights produce higher intensities of light due to the design, construction and internal pressures of the arc tube (light generating source). The physical design and shape of the…

EYE Exclusive Chemistry

How we can claim an exclusive chemistry For decades, all the HID lamp manufacturers in the world obtained arc tube chemistry doses from one source: APL (Anderson Physics Lab) Several years ago, EYE HORTILUX parent company, Iwasaki of Japan, pulled out of that agreement. Iwasaki used its own scientists, engineers and decades of experience in…

How to Compare LED Grow Lights

Choosing the right LED requires more than a PPF number To help explain, we will use this concept LED fixture. It packs a punch, but is it the right punch? PPF: 2000 μmol Efficacy: 2.96 μmol/J Watts: 675 (All data shown is taken from the concept LED on display here) WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN…

BTU Calculator

THIS BTU CALCULATOR IS FOR LIGHTING ONLYThis calculator will help you determine what cooling is necessary for lights, ballasts, and LED systems only. We understand there are several factors that go into a true BTU calculation for grow environments (air handlers, CO2, fans, etc.); however, there are simply too many variables to consider when estimating…
