ALPHA OPTICS 98 REFLECTOR
Even though design and appearance may not be critical in the choice for a product, the first impression of a product is often of big importance and you simply can’t ignore this when looking at the DimLux Expert Series! The streamlined and stylish golden housing and the shining reflector are an indication of the professional quality and they set the bar high for this product’s performances. It will not surprise you that the performances are excellent and that they belong to the best of the market.
There is a 50mm connection on the reflector with which warm air can be extracted to significantly lower the room temperature. Moreover, individually available attachable reflectors (ADD-ON) can be placed to reduce the wall losses even more. Usable with 250-750W lamps. The reflector is replaceable.
CREATE THE OPTIMAL LIGHT SURROUNDING
With the help of the Dimlux light calculator, it is possible to generate a perfect light plan/floorplan by giving the correct sized, the light requirements and the type of armature.
SINGLE BOUNCE CLEAR SIGHT FOR MORE LIGHT
SBCS is for single bounce clear sight. This means that the lights can only hit the reflector 1 time before the light leaves the reflector. The light can’t reflect back into the lamp as well. Result > more usable light and less heat development.
ADD-ON AND ADJUSTABLE SIDE REFLECTORS
Light that shines on paths or walls is a nett loss of light. To compensate for light loss, the reflector is adjustable into 2 positions. An extra ADD-ON reflector can also be placed by which even less light gets lost.
The convection-heat that is generated by the lamp goes up in the reflector. The reflector contains 50mm openings through which the heat can escape. Result > an improved thermoregulation resulting in a better lamp temperature.
The heat can escape from the reflector both passively (chimney effect) and actively. By active extraction with a ventilator at the 50mm round opening, the room temperature can significantly be reduced. The heat is extracted at the source, which is more efficient than cooling.
BETTER PERFORMANCES WITH OUR LIGHT HARDWARE
The DimLux electrical ballast belongs to a new generation of electrical ballasts (eb) that can arrange the voltage. With this, the regular 230-240v of the power outlet is converted to 400v so that better performing 400v lamps can be controlled. By using Ultra High Frequency Technology (UHF), the PAR light output is enormously increased while the temperature during use is reduced.
As long as you adopt the optimal circumstances, this can result in a yield of even 10-20% more than you had before.
ADJUSTABLE SIDE REFLECTORS & ADD-ON REFLECTORS
Both sides of the reflector are adjustable into 2 positions to accurately determine the spreading of the light.
A UNIQUE ALL-IN-ONE UNIT
What stands out in the Dimlux Expert Light systems besides the attractive appearance, is that the three major components (reflector, ballast, and lamp) are all covered in one robust unit. This reduces the risk on electromagnetic interference (EMI) and ensures that an uninterrupted energy flow reaches the lamp.
It also helps to create free space as the ballast no longer has to be attached to the wall or on the floor, and as no cablings are needed between the ballast and the reflectors anymore.
Single Bounce Clear Sight (SBCS)
The Alpha Optics 98 reflector is developed according to the Single Bounce Clear Sight (SBCS) principal and is equipped with Miro Silver mirrors. Thanks to this, the highest possible efficiency (98%) of all available horticulture reflectors is reached. For better overlap and in order to minimize wall losses, the reflector is equipped with adjustable side reflectors. Thanks to the open reflector design, the lamp is passively cooled, which stimulates the lamp’s lifespan and efficiency.
160 DIMLUX XTREME BALASTS
ON 1 MAXI CONTROLLER
An independent timer or relay is not needed, connect the light to the DimLux Maxi Controller, set the required day and night cycles on the machine and position the sensor, no more is needed!
DIMLUX REFLECTORS ARE DEVELOPED IN OUR OWN LABORATORY
The Alpha Optics 98 reflector and Dimlux Extreme Series are developed in our own laboratory Thanks to this, our technology. is unique and we achieve better results because of our thoroughly tested optimised reflector and lighting technique.
Our is optimised in an integrating sphere. Light rays incident on any point on the inner surface are, by multiple scattering reflections, distributed equally to all other points. The effects of the original direction of light are minimized.
EXTENSIVE AND ACCURATE ADJUSTMENT OPTIONS
A DimLux Expert Series light system exists of a DimLux electrical ballast, an Alpha Optics 98 reflector and a Philips Greenpower lamp.
A DimLux Expert Series light system exists of a DimLux electrical ballast, an Alpha Optics 98 reflector and a Philips Greenpower lamp. The DimLux ballast from the 600W and 1000W systems has the greatest dimming range of all electrical ballasts that are currently available, so you can most accurately adjust the amount of light (output) to the requirements of your crops. There are 7 standard dimming options available (most ballasts offer 3 or 4), including two special “boost” functions that allow you to safely overclock the lamp.
This makes it possible to obtain no less than another 15% extra grow light from the lamp! Connecting a DimLux Expert Series light system to a DimLux Maxi Controller eases the switch from stepwise dimming to continuous-variable dimming, which makes it even more easy to effectuate the perfect light setting. You can do this by means of the + and – (brightness) buttons, or you can set the desired temperature and leave the rest of it to the Maxi Controller. It won’t get any easier!
