A Whole New Type of Light
For decades traditional HPS and MH bulbs have been the standard for many growers but these days there are many new options available. Sun System has been developing Light Emitting Ceramic lights for years and they offer many unique benefits over both traditional lighting and newer technologies like LED and plasma. Because LECs run cooler, use fewer watts, and provide full spectrum light penetration, many growers have been blown away by the performance, cost savings and longevity of these new lights. They are great for small spaces like grow tents due to their low heat output, but also make great commercial fixtures with their long lamp life and reliable spectral maintenance.
Cooler and More Energy Efficient.
These lights are cool! Known as Ceramic Discharge Metal Halides these unique lamps produce intense light at about half the watts of traditional MH or HPS bulbs. This allows you to cover the same grow space with an equivalent amount of light while cutting wattage use in half! Since these bulbs run cooler, there is no need for additional fixture ventilation, reducing hassle, energy use and noise.
No Need to Air-Cool
Get rid of that extra duct-work, these lights run much cooler than traditional HID lights making it easier to control garden temps and allowing you to position the light closer to the canopy top.
Equivalent to HID lights of Twice the Wattage
Save on your energy bills by reducing the total wattage needed to grow! These lights will easily pay for themselves with energy savings in no time.
Perfect For Grow Tents
Because LEC lights produce such little heat, they make a great choice for indoor grow tents where heat control is a major concern. The standard 315 Watt fixture works great for smaller tents up to 4' x 4', while larger tents banefit from the dual-lamp 630 Watt fixture. For those wishing to take advantage of C02 generators in a sealed tent, the lower-temperature benefit of LECs really starts to shine.
