How does this magnetic ballast work?
This ballast is very reliable and affordable. It comes with a flying IEC lead and is one of the most affordable ballasts on the market. It runs cool and quiet and can be mounted on the wall to give more room on the floor, making it ideal for use in grow tents.
Magnetic Ballasts have been available for several years and are much appreciated by growers worldwide as they’re inexpensive. A magnetic ballast has a core of steel plates encased in a copper wire coil that helps create the magnetic field to regulate the electrical current transferred to voltage-sensitive light bulbs.
This product emits a lower intensity output, primarily because of this regulated current, so light bulbs enjoy a longer lifespan. An additional benefit of using magnetic ballasts is that these seldom produce radio interference, which is always helpful if you use a wireless nutrient monitoring system.
How do I use this magnetic ballast?
This ballast is perfect for beginners and gives a superb performance at a low and affordable price. It’s also straightforward to set this up, supplied with everything you need.
This ballast will get slightly warm when in use, so you’ll need to ensure that you position it on a flat surface. Connect the mains electrical plug into a socket and then switch it on. The ballast should start up and bring your lamp to life. But please remember that this ballast is for use with a 600w HPS or metal halide lamp.
