This newly redesigned fixture is boasting the famous Growers Choice Spectrum that was horticulturally engineered to replicate and harness the forceful penetrating power of the sun. This is the perfect fixture for all your horticulture applications and is leading the industry with the most efficient dimmable ballast and an open-air reflector that utilizes a unique passively cooled design. The new Grower’s Choice Horticultural CMH Lighting Fixture GC-630NS offers ultimate control of spectral output with two horizontally placed lamps that allows the ability to mix spectrums for an optimal full phase broad spectrum that will let all your specialty flowering plants reach their maximum potential. All Growers Choice fixtures have RJ9/RJ14 ports on them so that they can be controlled via the Gavita EL1 and/or EL2 controller.

Each lamp will be operated to the exact specification that the lamp requires. Smart Step Technology - 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 - will increase the output of the ballasts highest wattage lamp to achieve max. lamp performance. Increase is approximately 10% depending on model. Smart Start Ignition Control - When multiple units are connected to the same mains circuit our 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. 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. Re-Strike of Hot Lamp after Mains Failure - 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. Automatic Frequency Adjustment - The GC Series 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 - 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 - This unique case design acts as a superior heat sink making the ballast extremely cool running without the need for internal fans. RF Shielding - with Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 10% meaning it will not interfere with television or radio equipment. Silent Operation - The GC Series Digital Ballast has no noisy internal fans and is completely silent in operation. High Energy Efficiency - GC Series 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.
