Lighting Wattage

Recommended Posts

g'day; no...you can only use wattage that your ballast is rated at.eg; 400watt needs 400watt control box, 600watt needs 600watt control box, 1000watt needs 1000watt control etc.

400watt bulb wont go into 1000 watt control box.(without 'bang').

use 250watt bulb in 250watt ballast/control box.

we used to use an 880 watt hps in a mh 1000 watt balast....sounds odd but the hps was kind of inbetween a mh and a hps in light spectrum.....rather than buying a seperate hps kit.......


Expensive globes tho........


Ill look into it further to see if I can find what it was called
