About 1000 Watt HPS Ballast
You picked your grow lights carefully, you assembled your planters with love, you programmed your timer precisely for the veggies and herbs you want grow, but the 1000-watt HPS ballast you choose for the lighting system can make or break the whole set-up. The vast inventory on eBay includes 1000-watt dimmable ballasts with staggered, sequential starting to lower the risk of power surges, as well as circuit breaker protections and variable wattage settings. Slow-starting technology also lengthens the lifespan of your bulbs. Some 1000-watt digital ballasts feature built-in whisper-quiet fans to keep cool, while powering HPS lights with no audible noise and no flicker. A SolisTek Matrix 1000-watt HPS ballast, for example, includes its own built-in programmable timer, as well as a handy remote control with which you can program the timer on several SolisTek ballasts at once. It also includes its own self-diagnostic capability to detect problems prior to igniting the lamp, to prevent any damage or undue wear on the ballast or other equipment. With the right 1000-watt HPS ballast, not only does your indoor garden thrive, but your lighting set-up does as well.
