For cultivators who prefer compact lighting lamps, the 315W SE CMH light comes with versatile features to lighten their indoor systems. It's a digital lamp with a Ceramic Metal Halide fixture. Moreover, each unit features a single lamp, and there are four lamp options.
It's a controllable lamp thanks to its RJ9 and RJ 14 ports. So, better controllability lets you make the best of the lighting schemes. Also, it has a low-frequency square wave powers the system. It can simulate the sunlight covering a wide range of the spectrum, including infrared and ultraviolet ranges.
With better coverage, your crops get a more natural environment for growth. Therefore, it's an ideal option for commercial setups. The lamp can consume up to 2.9 Amps at an input voltage of 120 Volts. It requires a high ignition voltage of 3 to 5 kV.
It's a dimmable lamp as you can adjust the output wattages according to the ballast dial. On the other hand, the Super Lumen allows you to increase the lamp intensity. You can also avail of the Smart Step Ignition Control that ensures system protection and prolongs the lamp's life cycle.

The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballasts allow lamps of various wattages to be operated in the same unit simply by adjusting the dial on the ballast. Each lamp will be operated to the exact specification that the lamp requires.Smart Step Technology
By turning the dial on the Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballast you can reduce the output of a lamp when not so much power is needed. Just turn the dial again to step back to full power.Super Lumen
The Super Lumen feature on the Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture will increase the output of the ballasts highest wattage lamp to achieve maximum lamp performance. Increase is approximately 10% depending on model.Smart Start™ Ignition Control
This revolutionary feature, unique to Growers Choice products, makes the Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballast the safest and most reliable ballast when used in automated multiple lamp applications. When multiple units are connected to the same mains circuit, the integrated Ignition Control software will completely balance the electrical draw by igniting one lamp at a time to prevent electrical surges and spikes that can overload the mains circuit and trip circuit breaking systems. For further efficiency, this feature is activated alongside the Growers Choice 'Soft Start Technology'.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. Soft Start Technology is also activated when increasing and decreasing power to the lamp using the 'Smart-Step' feature.Re-Strike of Hot Lamp after Mains Failure
The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture 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 'Smart Start Ignition Control' and 'Soft Start Technology' software.Lamp Compatibility
The GC Series 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 Grower’s Choice horticultural lamps are recommended. Grower’s Choice lamps are optimized for use with high efficiency electronic ballasts with adjustable output.Automatic Frequency Adjustment:
The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballast automatically adjusts its output frequency to maintain a constant output regardless of input power fluctuations and ageing lamps. This also prevents 'lamp flicker'.Full Circuit Protection
The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture 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.Running Temperature
The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballasts' unique case design acts as a superior heat sink making the ballast extremely cool running without the need for internal fans.RF Shielding
The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballast has superior RF Shielding with Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 10% meaning it will not interfere with television or radio equipment.Silent Operation
The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballast has no noisy internal fans and is completely silent in operation.High Energy Efficiency
The Growers Choice Horticultural Lighting 315w SE CMH Complete Fixture Digital Ballast is up to 30% more efficient than standard magnetic ballast producing more lumens of light per watt of consumed energy. Efficiency does not diminish and is maintained for the entire life of the unit.
