Powerful CMH Spectrum Plus UV

A CMH lamp designed for horticulture because we don’t block the UV.

Designed for Base Up Only

The EYE HORTILUX CMH 315 grow lamp was designed specifically for horticulture. Most ceramic metal halide lamps were designed for use in the retail space, so the UV light was blocked. Hortilux uses a glass that allows the UV light to pass through benefiting plant growth.

Advantages

The exclusive EYE HORTILUX CMH spectrum provides 50% more Ultra Violet (UV) than the competitive lamps available today. This results in better overall plant growth and higher yields.

Benefits

Traditionally, Ceramic Metal Halide lamps were not designed for horticulture applications. They were designed to block UV when lighting products in retail stores. The EYE HORTILUX CMH 315 Grow Lamp was engineered to allow safe amounts of UV to pass through the glass and better imitate a plant’s exposure to natural sunlight.

DIRECTIONS

  • For best results use on ANSI rated C183 or C182 low frequency, square wave ballasts.
  • Not recommended for use on high-frequency ballasts.
  • Can be used in an open or enclosed fixture.
  • Must operate in a base up burning position. 

WARNING

This lamp can cause serious skin burn and eye inflammation from short-wave ultraviolet radiation if outer envelope of the lamp is broken or punctured. Do not use where people will remain for more than a few minutes, unless adequate shielding or other safety precautions are used. Lamps that will automatically extinguish when the outer envelope is broken or punctured are commercially available. Arc tube fill gas contains Kr-85.

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK:

  • Turn power off before inspection, installation or removal.
  • Protect lamp from direct contact with liquids to avoid breakage from thermal shock.

RISK OF FIRE: 

  • Keep combustible materials away from lamp during operation. UNEXPECTED LAMP RUPTURE MAY CAUSE INJURY, FIRE, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE
  • Do not exceed rated ballast voltage. 
  • Do not use lamp if outer glass is scratched or broken. 
  • Do not use beyond rated life. 
  • Do not turn on lamp until fully installed. 
  • Use only with fixture and ballast rated for this product. 
  • Electrically insulate any metal to glass support in fixture. 
  • Use in fixtures that do not exceed ANSI maximum lamp voltage rise limit. 
  • Relamp fixtures before the end of life. Allowing lamps to operate until they fail is not advised and may increase the possibility of inner arc tube rupture. 
  • Do not look directly at the operating lamp for any period of time. This may cause eye injury. 
  • Electrical connections should be clean and in good condition. Replace sockets when needed. 
  • Improper installation can cause electrical arcing and overheating 

CAUTION

RISK OF BURN:

  • Allow lamp to cool before handling. 
  • Contains sodium – Avoid skin contact with broken pieces. LAMP MAY SHATTER AND CAUSE INJURY IF BROKEN
  • Do not use excessive force when installing lamp. 
  • Dispose of lamp in an enclosed container.
