Q:CMH, CDM, LEC Grow Lights – What’s the difference?
A: Actually, these are all just different terms used for ceramic metal halide grow lights. Light-emitting-ceramic (LEC) is simply a manufacturer-specific line of ceramic metal halide (CMH) grow lights, while CMH is the general term for this type of light. The abbreviation of CDM stands for ‘ceramic discharge metal halide’, which is just an extended version of the same term.
Q: Why doesn’t the HyPAR have pins on the bottom like other 315 Watt CMH bulbs?
A: Originally popularized in Europe, many 315 watt CMH bulbs such as the Philips MasterColor were widely produced with the PGZ18 base (pins) for use in European fixtures and are still mostly available in that format, whereas the mogul base (screw in) is the most common lamp base type for grow light reflector hoods in the US. Bulbs with the PGZ18 base can also be used in the HyPAR system with the addition of a simple adapter (included when you select the Philips bulbs with this kit).
AgroMax HyPAR 315 Watt CMH Ballast
Designed specifically for optimal operation of 315w ceramic metal halide bulbs, AgroMax HyPAR ballasts produce a more stabilized light output using digital square-wave technology, which also eliminates issues such as interruption of cell phone, cable or Wi-Fi signals caused by EMI.
