Q: Which lamps are recommended for use in the Phantom and Lumatek digital ballasts?
A: Most lamp brands distributed by Hydrofarm are approved for use in the Phantom digital ballasts. Sun Pulse and Plantmax lamps are the preferred lamp brands for use in the Phantoms. NOTE: Many "blue", "super blue", or dual arc tube bulbs will work intermittently with Phantoms and Lumateks. Try to avoid using these bulbs with our digital ballasts.

Q: Why is my Hortilux bulb not working with my Lumatek or Phantom ballast?
A: Hortilux Blue Daylight Metal Halide bulbs are not compatible with Lumatek or Phantom digital ballasts. A magnetic ballast is recommended for these. If you have problems with other Metal Halide bulbs and our digital ballasts, try using a MH conversion bulb.

Q: If I cannot use item TM01240 with my Phantom at 240V, what timer can I use?
A: Use item TMHDT104, or one of our 240V-compatible lighting controllers, such as APCL4240.

Q: My bulb, ballast and reflector combination is not working. How can I fix this?
A: The problem might be a bad connection in the mogul socket. Make sure to disconnect the unit from the power supply, and then look inside the mogul socket for a metal tab. Pry this tab upwards a little bit to make better contact with the bulb base.

Q: Are my ballasts Generator-Ready?
A: All of the ballasts we sell are generator-ready, except for the UltraGrow E-ballasts. They are not recommended for use with a generator. Generator Ready ballasts include: Xtrasun Ballasts, Phantom Ballasts, Lumatek Ballasts, Super Grow Ballasts

Q: I have a 1000W ballast, can I use a 400W or 600W bulb in it?
A: As a general rule, ballasts can only be used with bulbs that are of the same wattage rating. A 1000W ballast can only be used with a 1000W bulb, a 400W with a 400W, etc. *This does not apply to the dimmable Lumateks, which can use a 600W bulb if dimming switch is set to 600W, etc. The Dial-A-Watt technology inside Lumatek ballasts gives them the ability to power different wattage lamps on the same ballast. If you have a resin sealed Lumatek 1,000W ballast you can use a 600W, 750W or 1,000W lamp in it. If you have a new Air Cooled Lumatek ballast you can use a 400W, 600W or 1,000W lamp in it.*

Q: Can an HPS ballast be used to power a metal halide bulb?
A: This is never recommended, the ballast and bulb type (wattage and HID bulb type) must match. Convertible ballasts, however, can be switched between MH and HPS modes. There is also the option of using a conversion bulb. This is a bulb that is designed to produce a MH spectrum on a HPS ballasts, or vice versa. Phantom digital ballasts can ignite HPS or MH bulbs, except for the 750W model, which is meant only for HPS.
