Ballasts

Providing smart growers with superior results.

CoolStar
AgroStar
What's the Difference?

 

COOLSTAR

*** New & Improved! ***

The CoolStar now features a MULTIVOLT power receptacle easily allowing the use of either 120 volt or 240 volt power.

The CoolStar remote ballast is the most technically innovative unit on the market today. The superior design and engineering of the CoolStar ballast provides performance that no other ballast unit can match.

The CoolStar ballast housing utilizes our innovative “thermal chimney” design that reduces component temperatures by up to 20° C and allows for cool, quiet operation. Cooler component temperatures are vital for component performance and extended product life.

This innovative “thermal chimney” allows the CoolStar to operate without vents, which guards the electrical components against dirt, dust and moisture.
Additionally the CoolStar incorporates the power of premium SUNMASTER components, which are the only components specifically tailored for horticultural production. The result is a premium system, which provides up to 14% more light than the nearest competitor.

The CoolStar is simple to use and can be matched up with any of our high performance reflector systems.

What's the Difference?

The difference between HIGH YIELD LIGHTNG ballast enclosures and other enclosures is that High Yield Lighting systems have been designed from the ground up to provide smart growers with superior results.

All of our competitors ballast enclosures are essentially a box, housing the components together in a single space. This single box design allows the high heat from the transformer to “cook” the other components in the enclosure; the capacitor and the igniter. This “cooking” results in shortened component life and reduced light output. Regardless if the enclosure is fabricated from steel or aluminum, whether it is painted or not, or has cooling fins or not, temperatures are very high inside these ALL of these other units.

In an attempt to reduce heat, some manufactures have added vents to their ballast enclosures. Not only do these vents accomplish very little with respect to cooling the components, they actually allow damage to the components from dirt, dust and moisture.

High Yield Lighting’s performance boosting “Thermal Chimney” design is manufactured into both the CoolStar and AgroStar ballast units. This design physically separates the ballast from the other components via two steel walls and a ¾ inch thermal chimney air gap that extends the full length of the ballast housing. The superior High Yield Lighting design eliminates the necessity for vents in the ballast housing, and there is no need for awkward forced air-cooling (as these outdated cooling methods will also contaminate the electronic components with dirt, dust and moisture).
