Anyone have any idea what would happen if I ran my cultilux de cmh 1000watt at 1150watts?
HPS is a lot more tolerant to being overdriven than CMH though.There have been numerous Professional articles that I have read where over clocking your lights can reduce the efficiency of the spectrums and will actually be counterproductive to your grow. I'm confident a short time surfing Google you should be able to find numerous reports backing this up.
Let us know how that plays out, we are all curious.The rep for cultilux told me he would replace it if I ran it at 1150 because he wasnt aware of anyone including there engineers that ran it at 1150
They are prototypes from @GoBrah in China. I have some that are designed to be "high UV" (no UV block in the glass), they fry plants. I could use one of those because they aren't useful for growing lol.What CMH bulbs do you have that are made for high frequency ballasts?
My dad was an all-American. Great men for sure!So anyways jdog hows it feel being a leg? I'm an 82nd airborne veteran myself.
I know exactly what you're talking about.Wow damn jdog that's fucking tragic. I feel you though on doing it all over again. I did 2 tours to Afghanistan and 1 in Iraq as an airborne infantryman. Fob falcon in Baghdad right by the traffic circle where Blackwater's cronies killed a shit ton of civilians.
overpower input will shorten the life, and has higher chance to cause arctube explosion but it is not 100% some bulbs will running for a while even at 1150 setting. Dont put safety on risk so no one recommend to do so.Anyone have any idea what would happen if I ran my cultilux de cmh 1000watt at 1150watts?
Is there any degradation of the spectrum when dimmed or over driven?overpower input will shorten the life, and has higher chance to cause arctube explosion but it is not 100% some bulbs will running for a while even at 1150 setting. Dont put safety on risk so no one recommend to do so.
