600w hps grow light review

When it comes to HID lamps, I think one of the most efficient compared to its power consumption is the 600 watt grow light. It tends to produce a higher rate of lumens per watt than all the smaller ones, nearly as much as a 1000 watt would but with a lower heat output and power use.

Nothing will make those ladies bloom as a 600 watt hps bulb, believe me!

HPS Grow Light System for Plants – the basics

A complete system is composed of 3 main elements:

  • the ballast is a power supply unit, it regulates and shapes the electricity into a regulated flow in order for the bulbs to produce smooth constant light.
  • the bulb: 2 main types of bulb can be found for these lamps: HPS (High Pressure Sodium), emitting in the yellow-red band, ideal for flowering stages and MH (Metal Halide), more fitted for vegetative periods, using cool to warm white and blue bands.
  • the reflector links the 2 previous items, it has a socket to fit the bulb and a cable to plug in the ballast, and is designed to reflect as much light as possible back down on the plants.
