400W Digital Ballast
This 400W digital ballast comes from one of the best equipment manufacturers in the horticultural lighting industry; Maxibright. Renowned for their reliability, quality, and price, the Maxibright Digilight range of ballasts are compact, lightweight, and offer cool and silent running.
However, probably the best benefit of using a Digilight ballast is down to the fact that digital ballasts help prolong the life of your grow lamps. Incorporating ‘soft-start’ technology, which uses a microprocessor instead of the traditional copper coil or magnetic resistance to ignite the lamp, digital ballasts need less current to ignite and therefore eliminate the ignition ‘spike’ issue prevalent in analogue ballasts. This 400W digital ballast has a start-up current of only 1.9A which will help protect your lamps.
Contrary to some of the information out there, digital ballasts are not ‘much more efficient’ than their analogue counterparts. They do tend to be marginally more efficient, but this really is a negligible amount and you won’t be seeing any major reductions in your electricity use.
The Maxibright Digilight ballasts don’t produce greater yields either. However, their ability to prolong equipment life will slow the degrading process of your grow lamps, which can help stimulate growth through a greater amount of plant usable light being available to your plants for a longer period of time.

- Soft start technology
