eStart is Pulse Start!

Better reliability and better performance. eStart provides consistent measurable results.

 

HORTILUX e-Start Metal Halide is designed for use on electronic/digital ballasts. The starting and operating characteristics of electronic/digital ballasts are different than traditional magnetic core & coil ballasts. These differences allow us to optimize lamp performance over life to improve results in your indoor garden.

Studies have shown the most productive method for indoor growing is by starting plants with Metal Halide and then switching to High Pressure Sodium grow lights. HORTILUX e-Start is a cost effective line of lamps designed to provide the spectral energy required for vegetative growth. The HORTILUX e-Start out performs most grow lamps because of high initial light intensity and consistent output of the exclusive EYE HORTILUX spectrum, making it a great choice for any indoor garden.
