Product Summary

Recreate The Conditions Of Natural Light With Maxibright Horizon, Maxibright Daylight & Propagation Lighting

By utilising Hytec Hydroponics' lighting equipment you will be able to easily recreate the conditions of natural light. Combined with a supply of water and high-quality nutrients, light activity will allow plants to assimilate carbon dioxide (CO2 = photosynthesis fuel) and release oxygen. Thus, the higher the luminous intensity, the more the plant will grow, remain perennial and produce abundant flowering.

Bulbs which recreate the conditions of natural light include:

 

Light is essential to the success of your hydroponics. To enhance the intensity of horticultural light, utilising reflectors, such as the maxibright horizon, is a perfect solution. Some bulbs, including HPS and MH bulbs, will need a digital or magnetic ballast - check out the maxibright daylight.  Perhaps you prefer to go to the basics, in this case Hytec Hydroponics offers pre-designed lighting kits for all surfaces.

Why Switch To CMD-LEC-CMH Lighting Technology - Products In-depth - Maxibright Horizon & Maxibright Daylight

The money you save on your electricity bill is the primary reason to switch to CMD grow light technology. The output is equal to a 600w but with half the power consumption and nowhere near the heat produced by a 600w, a major plus when the summer kicks in!

Although the initial cost of the system is more expensive than other HID systems on the market, CMD systems will save you money in the long run as there are low running costs and the longevity of the lamps is phenomenal. The life expectancy of these bulbs are rated @ 30,000 hr which means around; 2500 days of flowering @ a 12/12 lighting cycle!

Another advantage is their superior light quality compared to other HID lamps, which is due to having a wider spectrum - a result of the almost perfect unique combination of salts, halides and gases used in the arc tube. Like other high-intensity discharge lamps, these lamps need a nominal frequency value Digital Ballast, e.g. the maxibright daylight, plus a high-quality Reflector - e.g. the maxibright horizon.

Produce results that need to be seen to be believed!

Digital Ballasts - An Economical Solution To Power Your Light Sources

What is the difference between a magnetic and a digital ballast?

Electronic Ballasts

This is the most commonly used type of transformer. Electronic ballasts have a number of significant benefits if you choose to light your grow room with HPS or MH bulbs.

First, digital ballasts produce on average 25% more efficient lighting than magnetic ballasts (85% for magnetic ballast versus 99% for digital ballast). They are also very quiet, more economical in terms of power consumption and significantly increase the life of your lamps.

Note: There are bulbs like plasma lamps and CMDs, such as the maxibright horizon, that are specially designed for digital ballasts.

Magnetic Ballasts

Magnetic ballasts serve to transform the current of electrical circuits. The ballast must imperatively correspond to the wattages of the bulbs used (MH, HPS, Neon's). The most effective way to use a ballast for HID lamps is to be looped. There is less resistance to electricity when the ballasts are mounted in series on a circuit; therefore, less electricity is lost during transmission. Magnetic ballasts connected in series are powered by more current; thus, the grounding must be powerful. Directing a fan towards the ballast cools it and makes it more efficient.

How To Choose Your Ballast

The use of a ballast is not systematic; for example, it will be of no use in the case of lighting via CFL. However, its acquisition will be essential if you opt for lighting with HPS and MH lamps. For T5 and LED SMD panels, the ballast is generally delivered with ramps and panels.

 

Maximize Your Yields With Market Leading Hydroponic Lighting Kits

Optimise your grow room capabilities' by choosing from Hytec's extensive range of lighting kits, from the best brands on the market, purposefully adapted to the cycles of growth and blooming

Digital Ballasts, such as the maxibright daylight, regulate volts and watts electronically with reduced power consumption. Digital Ballasts are the most economical solution to control powerful light sources as they do not create resistance, thus, produce almost no heat or noise and can be used with all fluocompacts; whatever the power of the neon.

Hytec Hydroponics

Boost Your Grow Room Capabilities With Hytec Hydroponics' Reflectors

Optimise your grow room capabilities' by choosing from Hytec's extensive range of reflectors, from the best brands on the market, purposefully adapted to the cycles of growth and blooming.

Depending on your needs, there are several types of reflectors: open, closed, cooling tubes and those for CFLs (energy saving bulbs) HPS or MH bulbs. The shape of the reflector determines the distribution of the light as well as the heat released.

 

Determining The Right Reflector For Your Hydroponic System

The distance between lamps and plants is significant and should not be a rough estimate because every centimetre counts. Several factors are involved in the evaluation of this range: surface and shape of the reflector, size of the culture chamber, aeration, intensity of the bulb.

Closed reflectors concentrate the luminous flux better. The materials used are glossy or hammered aluminium. Hammered aluminium reflectors disperse the light flux in dozens of directions, avoiding heating points.

The shape of the reflector and its coating determine the distribution of light, as well as the presence of unwanted hot spots. Glazed reflectors, Light rails and Spreaders serve to avoid these harmful heating points for the leaves.

Neon's and T5s are already equipped with internal reflectors. As for LEDs, there is no need for reflectors; however, you can intensify the light with Mylar coating. All reflectors are equipped with E40 sockets, for all MH, HPS, hybrid and CFL lamps from 125 to 300W.
