Why Electonic Ballasts?

More lumen output

Up to 30% more lumens output than some old style magnetic ballasts ...More light equals more yield. We urge you to test this yourself with a good quality light meter. Be sure to also check how much power the ballast is using with an ammeter as many so called 600w magnetic ballasts now draw up to 750w as standard to try to keep up with Lumatek's lumen output.

More lumens generated per watt of electricity consumed

Lumatek E-Ballast have increased efficacy over magnetic ballasts. They lose fewer watts from the power supply to the lamp. The high frequency output results in low power loss at the cathodes in addition to better overall power management.

Stable light output

Excellent for Pharmaceutical-agriculture, laboratories and other uses where precise regularized output is essential.

Fast start-up

It reaches full brightness in under one minute; magnetic ballasts typically take about twenty minutes.

Completely silent

No noise or vibration of any kind

Small compact design

Lumatek 600watt 240V E-Ballast weighs 3.0 kilos compared to almost 20 kilos for magnetic ballasts.

Produce less heat

Less heat generated by the E-Ballasts makes temperature control easier and allows cooler running of the environment

Cut-off circuitry

Lumatek E-Ballasts cuts off when a short is detected; for ultimate safety.

Longer bulb life

Lumatek E-Ballasts output loss over time, with the correct lamp, is dramatically less than with magnetic ballasts.

Fully interchangeable

Lumatek E-Ballasts can light both HPS and MH bulbs (excluding the 750w which is HPS only).

Excellence through innovation

Our ballasts are tested by many lamp manufacturers and recommended by many industry specialists. By using the best components we deliver the safest and most reliable product in the market.

Settle for no less than a Lumatek.
