The Pro 600 was the first Gavita fixture developed for residential voltages in the retail market. The year it was introduced it immediately received an European industry award. The compact complete fixture contains a lamp, HR96 reflector and horticultural quality ballast in one comprehensive package. The real unique feature we introduced with this fixture was the use of a high voltage, high frequency lamp, while running on a standard consumer voltage. Of course the housing of the ballast is sealed and contains a gore-tex® plug to ventilate the housing, while keeping dust and humidity out. The higher output and added efficiency of the industry standard HR96 reflector make this the workhorse of the family. more/less
The spread of the Pro 600 with the industry standard HR96 SE (Single Ended) reflector is about 2.7×4 ft (80×120 cm) at 2 ft distance in overlapping plans for light levels up to 1000 µmol s-1 m-2. The fixed output, high frequency electronic ballast is designed to drive the Gavita Pro Plus 600 high voltage, high frequency single ended lamp, generating 1150 µmol s-1 of PAR light. This ballast is only suitable for our 400V, high frequency HPS lamps. With a light maintenance of over 96% per 5000 hours you only need to replace it once a year.
