Pulse-start metal halides are here! SunPulse Lamps are specially formulated for electronic and digital ballasts. They were created to withstand the mechanical resonance along with the initial 4KvP pulse that electronic ballasts use to ignite bulbs (this is what destroys standard HID lamps).
IF YOU ARE OPERATING ELECTRONIC BALLASTS — THIS LAMP IS ESSENTIAL TO HAVE!
SunPulse™ full spectrum and specialized spectrum grow lamps allow you to mix and match to create the perfect light for your specific application. Available in multiple Kelvin ratings — 3K, 4K, 6.4K and 10K.
For best results, we recommend using multiple spectrums throughout a plant’s growth cycle:
|Growth Cycle||Recommended Spectrum|
|Seedlings/ Cuttings||4K Full Spectrum|
|Majority of Veg.||6.4K Daylight|
|Last Week of Veg.||4K Full Spectrum|
|Most of Flowering||3K Red/ Orange|
|Final Week of Flowering||10K UVA Blue|

We understand that it is NOT always economically possible for indoor gardeners to run FOUR lamps for every lighting fixture. If using a “one-lamp system,” we suggest the 3K spectrum from start to finish.
