- These state-of-the-art ballasts are manufactured to provide today’s serious grower with maximum flexibility & performance. The Galaxy® Select-A-Watt® is the preferred “dimmable” electronic ballast on the market. The Galaxy® brand name carries a strong reputation of reliability and performance.
- Pre-programmed with a digital random start feature. Ballast will delay 1-3 seconds each time it starts. Reduces in-rush current spikes when starting multiple ballasts at a time.
- Lamps are only dimmable on wattages lower than the specified lamp wattage. A 600 watt lamp can be dimmed down to 400 watt, but cannot be over-driven to 1000 watts.
- The Turbo Charge® feature will increase the output by approximately 10%. You will achieve peak performance, but this may decrease your lamp life.
- 3 year warranty.
Note: If you are using a HydroFarm reflector or the HydroFarm "All System Cord Set", you will need the "BAASP" adapter at bottom of this page.
