  • Includes superior quality 400W JB Ballast.  A ballast is necessary for most hydroponic lighting system. High Intensity Discharge growing lights need a ballast to regulate the power feed to the lamp.
  • HPS GE Luca Grow 400 Watts. Bring your indoor plants to life with these lamps; a good alternative to natural light. GE Lucalox XO High Pressure Sodium lamps offer outstanding luminous efficacy, lumen maintenance and long life, thus reducing energy and maintenance costs.
  • Kroplite shade/reflector. This superior quality white powder coated reflector shade is built to last. Won’t rust, warp or corrode over time. Dimensions 480 x 450 x 210mm

JB Ballast features and benefits.

Components used in the JB range are the best quality available in the world. German Vossloh Schwabe Chokes, and Capacitor are used. The choke, ignitors and capacitor brands have been carefully selected based on the quality of the materials and special consideration has been made to ensure that the manufacturing processes of the components is up to date and modern manufacturing technologies are implemented.

Some special features include -

  • Very short magnetic paths
  • Short heat path*Winding insulation Class H or better
  • Vacuum impregnated core and coil
  • low power consumption

There are other black varnished chokes in the market place that can only boast one or two of the features above. In fact Vossloh chokes are the only chokes in this country that are vacuum impregnated. This means that when the varnish is applied to the finished product it is done in vacuum. This gives the following benefits over "black" chokes -

*Deeper penetration of varnish covering the entire winding

*Cooler and quieter running

*Service life is dramatically increased

*Increased efficiency

High voltages are required to start most HID lamps. The JB ignitor is specifically designed in house for ignition of the most common lamps used in the hydroponic industry. The JB ignitor will start a lamp up to a distance of 30 meters.

Capacitors are used in HID lighting for power factor correction. When you place a choke and the main line it causes the circuits to draw more current than is required to run the lamp. A capacitor equalises this effect. Our capacitors are of the highest quality, features include -

*Low capacitance loss


*High insulation resistance
