Don't skip over this timer just because it's more expensive than some of the other timers we offer; there's a very good reason for this - it may save your life, your property or both.
Many growers who are operating 1000 watt lighting systems often choose the less expensive plastic timers that we and other retailers offer. The logic behind this choice is totally understandable; those timers state they have an 1875 watt/15 amp capacity. But take our word for it, this DOES NOT include HID ballasts even though they only draw 1000 watts at 9.5 amps. Using these plastic timers for extended periods of time is very dangerous, just take a look at the image below:
Take our advice and spend the extra money - no one wants to come home from work to be greeted by the local fire department, or worse!
