Sun Pulse Metal Halide Grow lamps were created by the GAS Technologies group of photo-biologists, plant scientists, mechanical and electrical engineers, gas chemists, and HID lamp designers. They are designed with true solar symmetry for true photochemical reactions in living organisms, greater molecular efficiency in operations, and better color rendering. Sun Pulse lamps are made with the highest quality and quality control. Even lamp life approximately (20,000 hours) with little color shift or loss of FT-CD output.
Note: All pulse start lamps can be used and ANY magnetic/core type HPS (high pressure sodium) ballast or switchable ballast set to the HPS setting. Pulse start lamps can also be used with the following digital/electronic ballasts listed below.
