•    Our Pro 1000 digital ballast is the lightest, most compact product on the market. It also has the most mojo: Our ballast -- with it’s gold standard high efficiency, high frequency, high PAR output -- is the leading ballast on the market. This light, compact unit, crafted with our proprietary design architecture, uses a combination of sealed circuit board designs. It contains anti-moisture designs that work on multi levels, as well as anti-dust, and anti-heat designs. In addition to that, our dual fan thermostatic cooling system is just as effective as larger ballasts. This design allows us to have a more compact and lightweight digital ballast, without compromising it’s effectiveness or it’s power. 

•    No acoustic resonance

•    Plug and Play - Incredibly easy installation. The complete fixture arrives in one piece, requiring minimal assembly.

•    Multi-Stage Dimming with Super Lumens:  Everyone loves this feature. By turning the dial on the digital ballast you can adjust the output of a lamp from 40%, 60%, 100% and Super Lumens (110%). You can operate individual lamps this way so that outputs vary with each lamp. This highly versatile 1100W digital fixture allows for an incredible array of choices via growing conditions, and with that, higher quality yields. Also of note: under our Super Lumens setting, lamps will emit its maximum quality PAR. 

•    Strikes both Metal Halide (MH), and High Pressured Sodium (HPS) lamps.

•    Safe Delayed Re-strike: A timed re-strike system prevents the ballast from re-striking a hot lamp after a power failure. The re-strike will be delayed for 60 second intervals until the lamp has cooled sufficiently to be re-ignited. Safe Delayed Re-strike is controlled by Smart Balance and Soft Start.
 

•    Ultra-Low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD): High frequency digital ballasts cause waveform distortions that can easily distort voltages, put excessive stress on electronic networks, and often overload equipment. Our digital ballasts – indeed our complete fixture systems -- are designed with this in mind. We have the lowest THD ratio on the market, with less than 6% operating under Overdrive, our Innoboost. It is important to note, most fixtures on the market indicate a THD are less than 10%. 

•    Dual fan thermostatic cooling system: Thermostatically controlled fans adjust each unit’s speed depending on the internal temperature of the ballast. This system design ensures that heat from the ballast disperses properly – also that the unit is virtually silent during operation. Our ballast can be cooled with a single fan, but employs a second fan as backup. The fans are tested for 50,000 hours of continuous operation, ensuring a lasting lifespan. 

•    Smart Balance Ignition Control: Integrated ignition controls seamlessly balance the electrical draw to multiple ballasts to prevent unwanted electrical surges that would otherwise overload any system’s main circuit. We use a sophisticated software controlled Smart Balance System that allows for multiple units to work harmoniously – while ensuring equal distribution along the main circuit line. By igniting one lamp at a time, our Smart Balance System prevents unwanted surges and/or tripped circuit breakers.  

•    Soft Start Technology: Alongside Smart Balance, our Soft Start design prolongs lamp life by preventing surges and with that, lamp overload.  When the ballast is started from a cold state, there is a three second fixed delay before ignition. After ignition, there is a series of random 0-2 second delays before full brightness is reached (after approximately 3-5 minutes). This technology is also activated when increasing and decreasing power to the lamp under our Multi-stage dimming with Inno-boost. 

•    Smart Self Diagnostics (SSD): Our digital ballast uses a sophisticated software-controlled circuit breaking system not seen in other manufacturer's ballasts. The system is designed to ensure the unit operates with optimum efficiency by protecting against a series of defaults which include:

 
        •    Open Circuit Protection.            •    Short Circuit Protection.                    •    Over Voltage Protection.
        •    Under Voltage Protection.        •    Over Temperature Protection.


On ignition the ballast performs a three second test of the circuit. In the event of a fault, the ballast will go into ‘protection’ mode to avoid damage to the ballast and the lamp. The cause of the fault can be diagnosed using the LED warning lights on the ballast and following chart.
