The 1000w SolisTek SE/DE Matrix 2.0 ballast is a versatile piece of kit that offers lots of various lighting options. It will strike both single and double end lamps, depending on the reflector you choose. It doesn’t matter if it is a metal halide or HPS lamp, the Matrix ballast will run them all. The ballast runs at 106+kHz frequency, making it one of highest frequency ballasts available today. Suitable for high frequency 400v electronic lamps too!
What sets the 1000w SE/DE Matrix 2.0 apart from the competition is the digital timer that comes as part of it. It is fully customizable with on/ off schedules for any grow cycle. This makes external timers superfluous and the light system simpler. The trade-off is you will need the SolisTek Remote Control (sold separately). This remote allows the user to synch multiple ballasts to the same schedule from up to 70ft away. It will also let you change the wattages of each ballast without having to touch them.
The 1000w SE/DE Matrix 2.0 ballast features a digital read out display, making it easy to see what’s happening. SolisTek have made this a green light display so as to not disturb the plants during the dark phase. This ballast even has a life timer, counting the number of hours the ballast has been on for!
All SolisTek digital ballasts come with some top quality tech as standard. These include Ignition Control which detects the whole lighting system and strikes the lamp at the optimal voltage. SenseSmart runs a diagnostic check in the lamp and ballast before striking to ensure everything is safe to do so. Then there is the low output Total Harmonic Distortion. In a nutshell, it keeps the quality of the light as high as possible, meaning you get more bang for your buck. There is much more information on these technologies on the SolisTek website, which you can see by clicking here!
