The Maxibright Promax Gold 600W is a 240V/400V dimmable ballast that can operate 600W lamps at the following outputs: 400W, 500W, 600W and 660W boost. It can also operate 400W lamps on the 400W setting.
It can run both metal halide and HPS/dual spectrum on both 240V and 400V and although there currently isn’t a 600W/400V metal halide lamp on the market – when they do become available this ballast will be able to run them.
The unit has all the usual features that you would expect from a premium ballast including:
– Automatically detects with wattage and voltage of lamp that is plugged in and powers it accordingly
– Soft start technology
– Fast lamp re-strike in case of power cut
– Surge control so that when multiple ballasts are started from the same power supply, they will safely ignite your lamps one at a time to reduce electrical surges
– Dynamic frequency control for constant regulated output
– Diagnostic LED feature
– Silent running
The Promax Gold can run all 240V grow lamps and any of the 400V (E40) lamps currently on sale – the Sunmaster 600W/400V dual spectrum lamp, the Philips GreenPower Plus 600W-400V and the Sylvania Grolux 600W-400V.
