LUMii Black 600w Electronic Ballast.

The LUMii Black 600w Electronic Ballast is used to dim the power to your lights to run at 250w or 400w. It’s a practical option if your hydroponic growing space is subject to high temperatures or your plants are in their early growth stage, and 600 watts aren’t necessary.

The product also features a ‘super-lumens’ option which boosts the ballast’s output by a further 10% to 660 watts; use this facility during your plants’ late flowering/fruiting stage to give the plants extra light to enable them to supply an even greater yield at harvest!

This product can work with both HPS and metal halide lamps and it has several useful features, and they include the following:

  • ‘Super-lumens’ option, which boosts the output to 660w
  • Compatible with any reflectors which have an IEC socket
  • Relatively cool and silent when running
  • Dimensions are 290mm x 120mm x and 60mm
  • 2-metre electric power cable with UK mains plug
  • 1-year manufacturer’s warranty for peace of mind
  • 30% more efficient than standard magnetic ballasts
  • It has a ‘soft start’ with thermal protection ensuring maximum protection against energy spikes
  • Capable of running both HPS or MH lamps

How does this electronic ballast work?

This electronic ballast is a practical, adaptable product and an asset to any hydroponic lighting system. It’s lightweight and produces very little heat. It has variable settings, which makes it ideal for almost all circumstances. The product provides four lighting options within one ballast, including 250w, 400w, 600w, and a 10% boost mode that effectively enables 660w. 

This ballast runs quite cool while at the same time producing consistent and efficient lighting, much more so than the traditional magnetic type of ballast. It converts the mains electricity into the correct voltage to power HPS or metal halide lamps. If you use the 660w boosting facility, you’ll be able to nurture your plants more to reach their full potential.

This ballast runs almost silently, making it handy to grow your crop with minimal noise or without attracting too much attention.

This dimmable ballast is an excellent alternative to magnetic-type ballasts. Digital ballasts are much more efficient and generate more lumens than magnetic ballasts of the same watt output to engender healthier and larger plants. 

It has a wall mounting fixture, so it is easy to set it up in your growing space.

How do I use this electronic ballast?

This product is quite cool when running, but you’ll still need to locate it in a well-ventilated location. Always place your ballast on a firm, flat surface level, and do not put them on carpets. 

You should begin setting up by connecting your reflector’s input lead to the ballast output lead, ensuring that the cable doesn’t come anywhere near anything hot. Then make sure that the lamp is screwed tightly into the bulb holder and that the reflector is at the correct height for what it needs to do.

It’s important to remember that you should only be using the power output appropriate for the lamps’ output wattage. So, for example, if you’re using a 250-watt lamp, you should only be using this ballast at 250 watts. 

Using the 10% boost facility with this ballast is possible, but only when you’re on the 600w setting. When choosing the output wattage, you should connect the ballast to the mains electricity plug and switch it on. Your lamp will then light up slowly.

Note: You should never boost a lower-wattage lamp to a higher lamp-wattage setting.
