DE (Double Ended) fixtures offer several advantages over traditional single ended (or "mogul-base") fixtures, including significantly longer lamp life (the light output doesn't degrade as quickly as it does with conventional lamps), higher PAR (plant-usable light) and lumen output, and no shading due to the wire frame used in conventional HPS lamps. You will absolutely notice an increase in plant growth and yield and you will actually save money over time because you will be purchasing replacement lamps less frequently.
These lighting systems come complete with everything you need to grow plants indoors, including the bulb, ballast, reflector, socket assembly, 15' lamp cord, wire hooks for hanging reflector and instructions. They are pre-wired and take only a couple of minutes to setup. The 15' heavy duty detachable lamp cord with it's quick-disconnect adapter makes installation and take-down a snap.
AC/DE Air-Cooled Reflector
State-of-the-art, optically engineered for high performance based on proven, patented designs. Made specifically for double ended 1000 watt HPS horticultural lamps. Features German made, UL listed double ended sockets. Unique double ended construction allows for maximum optical efficiency and uniformity. Full spectrum DE lamps used in this fixture focus on the red component for increased photosynthetic response. They offer improved PAR values and increased PAR/Lumen maintenance (up to 90% PAR at 10,000 hours of operation). Deep reflector design holds the lamp heat to keep the DE lamp at optimal operating temperature. 95% reflective textured German aluminum interior with 98% reflective corner inserts offer unsurpassed uniformity, output and diffusion. Galvanized steel housing with durable powder coated finish. Detachable 15 ft lamp cord at the reflector and at ballast. Comes with built in level for easy, consistent, level hanging. Patents Pending: 29/446133, 29/477993, 13/945794, 13/533189, (China) US2014014959.
