Refer to the Anatomy of a DE Lamp below and follow the Installation Guide to properly install your new EYE HORTILUX® DE Grow Lamp. This guide will walk you through the installation process for most standard DE fixtures.
Safely Install Your DE HPS Lamp
CAUTION: Shock Hazard. Disconnect power before installation.
IMPORTANT: PUT ON GLOVE. DO NOT TOUCH EYE HORTILUX DE LAMP WITH BARE HANDS. The Outer Jacket is made of Quartz Glass and cannot be touched like regular SE lamps. This weakens the glass and can cause lamp failure over time.
Wear safety glasses during installation.
Protective glove must be worn while handling lamp.
STEP 2: INSERT LEAD WIRES BETWEEN SLOTS
Install the lamp by positioning the “Pinch Area” horizontally (NOT vertically) while inserting the “Lead Wires” between the slots in each socket. DO NOT BEND THE WIRES! WARNING: Bending wires can cause arcing in socket that can result in injury, electrocution or fire.
After the “Lead Wires” have been placed in the sockets, the lamp should be sitting with one end on TOP of the silver socket springs and the other end in FRONT of the springs (see example above).
STEP 3: SECURE LAMP INTO POSITION
Gently push down the “Pinch Area” that was placed on top of the silver socket springs until it is securely in place.
CAUTION: Do not push too hard as you may break or chip the glass which can cause lamp failure!
STEP 4: LOCK LAMP INTO PLACE
Forcefully slide each socket inward, all the way, until it clicks into place – making sure it is fully closed with no gap visible (see example above).
WARNING: Failure to completely close and lock sockets in place can cause arcing in the socket that can result in injury, electrocution and fire.
