Chief, what type of eballast (with tech specs please) that can partner with this badboy?

Can you please share a pic of this in action? I just need to know how many square inches (or feet) that a single bulb can take care of.


Thanks.

Output Voltage: 3.8-5KV
Ta: -25℃ to 55℃
Tc: Max.80℃
APPROVAL:TUV EMC CE ROHS

Technical Parameters:
Protection class II Thermal Protection
Casing: Aluminium and Heat-resistant Polyamide Ambient temperature(ta):-25 to 55℃
High Power Factor Casing temperature(tc):Max.80℃
Power Factor(PF)≥0.98 Constant Power Output
Total Harmonic(THD)<15% Over Voltage Protection
Low Product Temperature Air Humidity(%):Min.5% Max.85%

foreground is PAR30 and background uses G12 bulb (same bulb inside the PAR30/PAR38)

Did some tests using a LUX meter for the 150W PAR38 bulb:

@ 24" below the bulb

Under the bulb: Over 20,000 lux
at 12 inches periphery: 18,000 lux
at 18 inches periphery: 10,000 lux
at 24 inches periphery: 4,000 lux

@ 36" below the bulb

Under the bulb: 10,600 lux
at 12 inches periphery: 10,000 lux
at 18 inches periphery: 8,200 lux
at 24 inches periphery: 6,500 lux

@ 42" below the bulb

Under the bulb: 7,800 lux
at 12 inches periphery: 7,600 lux
at 18 inches periphery: 7,200 lux
at 24 inches periphery: 5,800 lux

OT: Can you show to us that beautiful tank behind the lamps? :-)

More OT: I count a bunch of pumps inside that tank so that must be an enormous sized tank!!! :roll: :wink:

(Disclaimer: I got the MH bulbs from Peter and the electronic MH ballast. The materials built seem to be okay. I have not had the time to put them in operation yet.) :roll:
