LUMATEK LAMP ADAPTER PGZ18 TO E40 PORCELAIN
Ceramic Metal Halide (also known as CMH/CDM/LEC) lamps give out an intense full spectrum light that plants love. The Lumatek E40 to CMH adapter converts your current reflectors E40 lamp fitting for use with a CMH lamp. CMH lamps give you incredible full spectrum light which gives much better quality than you would expect from HPS lighting alone.
- Save on your electricity bills and produce the same yields;
- CMH - full spectrum light output that plants love;
- Less heat output than equivalent HPS lights;
- Gives off 1.9 umols PPF per watt - amazingly efficient.
Simply screw the adapter into your current reflectors E40 fitting and screw the CMH lamp into the convertor in your reflector as tightly as possible by gripping the lamp with a clean, dry cloth. If the lamp is not screwed in as tightly as possible, arcing can occur between the centre contact of the lamp and the lamp-holder. This melts the solder contact on the bottom of the lamp, causing damage and making it un-useable. Make sure that the lamp is clean and completely free of fingerprints and other contaminants. Finally, make sure that your reflector is hung at the correct height for your CMH Lamp.
The wattage of your ballast MUST match the wattage of the lamp you are using or there will be a high risk of fires or equipment damage. Never use a HPS or MH ballast with CMH lamps. Connect the mains plug into an electrical outlet socket and switch on. The ballast will start-up and light the lamp.
