Light Emitting Ceramic LEC Grow Lights – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN
High Intensity Discharge (HID) grow lights have long been the standard for serious indoor growers. They provide the intense lighting that plants need for robust, strong growth. There has really been no substitute for Metal Halide (MH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps until recently. Phillips, the leader in innovative lighting technology has now introduced Light Emitting Ceramic (LEC) to the market. A unique variation on Metal Halide designs, they offer more efficient lighting with ideal spectral qualities.
Available in 3100K and 4200K light spectrum output, these bulbs are the most efficient, longest lasting bulbs available. For maximum bulb life and output, they require ballasts designed specifically for LEC applications. Reflectors, too, should be designed for LEC lamps, as well. Sun System has designed its own reflectors. As the leading indoor gardening store in Minnesota, we’re proud to offer these new systems for Twin Cities growers. Using any of the products below, you’ll grow better while saving energy. Come in soon to see these Sun System LEC grow lights for yourself.
Sun System 315W and 630W LEC Fixtures
315W: Complete with a built-in Phillips LEC ballast and a 3100K LEC bulb (4200K bulb optional), The Sun System LEC 315 is ready to go to work for you right out of the box. The self-cooling reflector incorporates a 98% reflective German aluminum insert for maximum output and diffusion. The 20,000-hour bulb life and 50,000 hour ballast life ensures long-term reliability and performance. The light output provides higher amounts of UV and far red spectrums than MH and HPS bulbs for additional growing power. It provides 33,000 lumens from the moment you power it up, and maintains 85% of that output throughout the bulb’s lifetime.
630W: Get the ultimate in state-of-the-art LEC technology with this specially designed 2-bulb LEC system. A specially designed dual-bulb reflector with 8″ cooling vent combines with two CDM-T 315 Watt LEC 3100K brand lamps (4200K bulb optional) and a Phillips-designed 630-Watt LEC ballast to provide professional grade grow light power. With a hinged glass design and double neoprene gaskets, it’s ready to hang, and includes a built-in level for convenient installation. Long bulb and ballast life is part of the design. If you accept no compromises, this is the lighting system of the future.
