The SmartStart Digital Ballast is not just another off the shelf digital ballast like so many seen in today’s marketplace.

The SmartStart Digital Ballast incorporates our revolutionary Ignition Control and Intelligent Circuit Protection Software that is unique to all of our products.

Whether you are running one or one hundred units, our high quality engineering and unique internal software provides the most efficient, reliable and safest digital lighting system for use in horticultural and hydroponics applications.


SmartStart Ignition Control: This revolutionary feature ensures that the SmartStart Digital Ballast is the safest, most reliable and energy efficient digital ballast when used in automated multiple lamp applications. When multiple units are connected to the mains circuit, our integrated Ignition Control software will completely balance the electrical draw by igniting one lamp at a time to prevent electrical surges and spikes that can overload the mains circuit and trip circuit breaking systems. For further efficiency, this feature coincides with our ‘Soft Start Technology’.

Intelligent Circuit Protection: The SmartStart Digital Ballast uses a sophisticated software controlled circuit breaking system that is not seen in other manufacturer’s ballasts. The system protects against a series of faults including: Open Circuit Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Over Voltage Protection, Under Voltage Protection and Over Temperature Protection. On Ignition the ballast performs a 3 second test of the circuit and in the event of a fault the ballast will go into protection mode to avoid damage to the ballast and lamp.

Soft Start Technology: Soft Start Technology prolongs lamp life by stopping current rush to the lamp and preventing lamp overload. When the ballast is started from cold there will be a 3 second fixed delay before ignition. After ignition there will be a series of random 0-2 second delays before full brightness is reached after approximately 3-5 minutes.
Re-Strike of Hot Lamps after Mains Failure: The SmartStart Digital Ballast uses a timed re-strike system that prevents the ballast from re-striking a hot lamp after a power failure. If a hot lamp is detected, the re-strike will be delayed for 60 second intervals until the lamp has cooled sufficiently to be re-ignited. Re-ignition is then controlled by ‘SmartStart Ignition Control’ and coincides with our ‘Soft Start Technology’ feature.

Lamp Compatibility: The SmartStart Digital Ballast is suitable for use with Sodium, Metal Halide and Dual Spectrum lamps.

Automatic Frequency Adjustment: The SmartStart Digital Ballast automatically adjusts its output frequency to maintain a constant output regardless of input power fluctuations and ageing lamps. This also prevents ‘lamp flicker’.

Running Temperature: The unique case design acts as a superior heat sink making the ballast cool running without the need for internal fans.

RF Shielding: The SmartStart Digital Ballast has superior RF Shielding with Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 7% meaning it will not interfere with television or radio equipment.

Silent Operation: The SmartStart Digital Ballast has no noisy internal fans and is completely silent in operation.

High Energy Efficiency: The SmartStart Digital Ballast is up to 30% more efficient than standard magnetic ballasts producing more lumens of light per watt of consumed energy. Efficiency does not diminish and is maintained for the entire life of the unit.
