Lucius 630W 120/240V DE CMH Complete Light Fixture
Soft Start Technology
Soft Start Technology prolongs lamp life by stopping current rush to the lamp and preventing lamp overload. When the ballast is started from cold there will be a 3 second fixed delay before ignition. After ignition there will be a series of random 0-2 second delays before full brightness is reached after approximately 3-5 minutes. SoftStart Technology is also activated when increasing and decreasing power to the lamp using the'Smart-Step' feature.
Re-Strike of Hot Lamp
The Lucius Digital Ballast uses a timed re-strike system that prevents the ballast from re-striking a hot lamp after a power failure. If a hot lamp is detected, the re-strike will be delayed for 60 second intervals until the lamp has cooled sufficiently to be re-ignited. Re-ignition is then controlled by 'SmartStart Ignition Control' and'Soft Start Technology' software.
The Lucius Digital Ballast is suitable for use with all good quality HPS, Metal Halide and Ceramic Metal Halide lamps. For a guaranteed perfect match and the best results we recommend Lucius horticultural lamps. Lucius lamps are optimized for use with high efficiency electronic ballasts with adjustable output.
Full Circuit Protection
The Lucius Digital Ballast uses a sophisticated software controlled circuit breaking system that is not seen in other manufacturer's ballasts. The system protects against a series of faults including: Open Circuit Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Over Voltage Protection, Under Voltage Protection and Over Temperature Protection. On Ignition the ballast performs a 3 second test of the circuit and in the event of a fault the ballast will go into protection mode to avoid damage to the ballast and lamp.
The Lucius Digital Ballasts' unique case design acts as a superior heat sink making the ballast extremely cool running without the need for internal fans.
The Lucius Digital Ballast has no noisy internal fans and is completely silent in operation.
