The original Powerbox Flipbox allows an individual ballast to run two separate lights – one at a time – by switching back and forth between each light, at a user-specified interval.
• Runs TWO lights from ONE ballast
• Double production without installing additional power circuits
• Save money on ballasts – use one ballast to run two lights
• Voltage independent – works with 120v and 240v ballasts
• Chain up to 20 controllers together for simultaneous flipping
• Fits Sunlight Supply-style lamps & ballasts (requires a Plug Adapter to work with Hydrofarm products)
• Hand-built in the USA
• 5-year warranty

This unit works with virtually all magnetic ballasts and with most new digital ballasts. When using digital ballasts with ‘error sensing’ technology (such as Lumatek and Phantom), you will need to turn the ballast(s) off 5 minutes before flipping, and then back on 5 minutes after flipping.
