Our e-series ballasts no longer require a switchboard to be switched on and off and no longer need their own switch to dim or boost them.
Now you can just touch a few buttons on your controller to be in complete control of all your connected ballasts at once. Our Master controllers do this, and much more!
The Gavita EL controller series currently comprises of two models: The EL1 and EL2.
Both feature auto-dim, auto-shutdown, sunrise/sunset, and timer.
The EL1 has one output channel, while the EL2 has 2 output channels and additional outputs for External Contactor Modules and alarm contacts.
For one room without auxiliary equipment or alarm contacts, the EL1 is the best choice for you.
If you require switched auxiliary equipment during lights on/off, alarm contacts and/or a 2 room 12/12 setup, the EL2 is most suitable.
Gavita Bulb Pro Plus 1000 Watt 400 Volt EL DE
Gavita Pro Plus 1000W EL Double-Ended 400 V lamp is one of the best 1000 watt HPS lamps on the market. (It's a Philips.)
Specifically designed for high-frequency electronic ballasts, it has a connection at each side of the lamp, removing the need for a frame wire inside the lamp.
For use with Gavita fixtures only. The jacket of this double-ended lamp is made from quartz glass.
Do not handle with bare hands. Oil from your hands can damage the lamp.
Warranty applies only if these lamps are operated with a Gavita Pro series ballast.
GAVITA PRO 600 SE *Replacement Bulb*
Not that it's likely, but if you've got their SE-based 600W unit, buy this bulb when it's time to replace it. About every 2 years or less.
It's different than your normal 600W bulb, because it likes the higher-frequency 400V situation. Don't get a different one for your Gavita unit, or else. You've been warned!
GAVITA PRO 6/750 *Replacement Bulb*
Have you got a 6/750 Gavita DE? This is the bulb to replace your old one. Do it every 2 years, at least.
GAVITA PRO 6/750 **Bulb&ReflectorKit**
Bulb AND replacement reflector for the Gavita 6/750. They got pissed off that people weren't replacing their reflectors, so for now they are including one for free!
Gavita Pro 750/1000 DE - Replacement Wide Reflector 150
Replacement reflector for Gavita Pro line and HortiStar. Easy to install, no tools required.
Widespread for optimal uniformity (150° beam angle).
Suitable for double-ended 750-1000W HPS. This reflector is most suitable for overlapping plans.
Designed for uniformity. Made from MIRO aluminum.
Gavita 750/1000 DE - Replacement Reflector
Our HR96 reflector is made of a very high-grade Miro aluminum with 95% efficiency, which provides optimal reflectance of light to your crop.
The shape of this reflector may look like a deep reflector, but it actually gives you a medium wide beam angle of about 135 degrees!
The spread of the Pro 1000 equipped with the HR96 DE reflector is about 4 x 6 ft (110 x 180 cm) at 3 ft distance in overlapping plans, providing light levels of up to 1000 µmol s-1 m-2.
For double-ended 750&1000 watt lamps. Lamp not included. Reflector dimensions: 20.1 in long x 9.6 in wide x 7.6 in high.
Gavita Pro 600 SE - Replacement Reflector
Never change a winning team.
The moment we introduced this reflector it revolutionized the way people look at reflectors.
The shape of this reflector may look like a deep reflector, but it actually gives you a medium wide beam angle of about 135 degrees! The unique light distribution allows not only horizontal but also vertical uniformity. In a large overlapping plan, the vertical light depreciation over double the distance to the light is less than 8%, with light uniformity at optimal height over 90% average.
We developed the HR96 specifically for overlapping plans.
When you light plants, you light a room, creating light uniformity. So the best application of the HR96 is in multi-row systems.
Gavita Pro 6/750e DE Flex 120/240
The ‘e’ in ‘e-series’ stands for external control.
These fixtures can be controlled centrally by a Gavita Master controller.
This replaces the often cumbersome installation with contactors and clocks, and adds safety features such as automatic dimming of your lights at high temperatures and even a safety shutdown.
We were the first to launch a double ended 1000W HPS lamp in this market, and we were also the first to introduce a double-ended 750W HPS lamp.
This lamp bridges the gap between a 600W single ended, and a 1000W double ended fixture.
In many rooms you just don’t have the height to run a 1000W fixture at 100%, and in other rooms you don’t need the intensity. Running a 1000W lamp at 750W all the time is a not a desirable situation as the lamp does not come to its full efficiency and the spectrum deteriorates.
In those situations the 6/750 DE FLEX is the ideal solution, more efficient, cheaper and with a much better spectrum.
We call it the 6//750 as the efficiency of the lamp, dimmed to 600W, is still really good: as good as any other 600W industry standard HPS lamp.
With the 750W lamp you can come almost a ft closer to your crop (a bit less in overlapping plans).
The fixture comprises of a ballast, reflector and lamp in one complete compact package.
Made according to horticultural standards, the housing of the ballast is sealed and contains a gore-tex® plug to ventilate the housing, while keeping dust and humidity out.
Ballast output is either controlled by the Gavita Master controllers, or an external switch, allowing it to be adjusted to 400, 500, 600, 750 W, and 825 W boosted output.
The Master Controller can centrally control the output hundreds of fixtures in a range between 375 and 825 W output power.
Using the Master controller safeguards your valuable crop by the added auto-dim and auto-shutdown features, and completely automates your light control.
The high-frequency ballast was specifically designed for the Gavita double ended HPS lamp, resulting in an accurate, optimal output, a stable burning lamp and better light maintenance over time.
The ballast is not suitable to run Metal Halide lamps.
The reflector is replaceable (we recommend to do this every year to two years) and there is a choice of replacement reflectors:
The HR96 DE for overlapping configurations, assuring optimal uniformity and penetration. This is the industry standard reflector delivered with the fixture.
The W 150 DE for wide configurations, where uniformity and lower light levels are required in large rooms. 150 degrees beam angle, for double-ended lamps.
The M 110 DE SR for applications in single rows and small rooms, where a single reflector needs to create uniformity and high light levels. 110 degrees beam angle, for double-ended lamps.
The spread of the Pro 6//750 with the HR96 DE reflector is about 3×4.5 ft (90×135 cm) at 2.5 ft distance in overlapping plans, providing light levels of up to 1000 µmol s-1 m-2.
The fixture’s light source is a Gavita Pro 750W double ended HPS lamp, generating 1450 µmol s-1 of light. With a light maintenance of over 96% per 5000 hours you only need to replace it once a year.
Mounting is easy because the fixture is balanced and only requires two hanging points. For c-profile installations, we have convenient brackets available.
Gavita Pro 1000e DE SL Fixture, 208-240 V
Only 9.7 inch high makes the ‘Slim Line’ the shortest 240 volt Gavita fixture ever. Highest light output and maintenance over time. It has the HR96 reflector for the maximum efficiency and uniformity. Highly efficient passive cooling of ballast for a longer lifetime of the electronics. Sealed housing with Gore-Tex® ventilation plug and controllable output up to 1150 Watt. Equipped with Repeater Bus interface which is a double-port connector on the ballast that allows you to directly daisy chain 100 fixtures per string and five strings per controller port to connect a maximum of 500 fixtures per controller port.
