What accessories are needed to start a sodium lamp
To activate sodium lamps, you can use a single electronic device, or a set of devices and elements. The first option allows you to automate the plant care process, but it is not cheap. To save money on lighting for growing cannabis in a grow box, many economic growers buy the components separately: a PSU, a choke, a capacitor and a cartridge.
How to choose the control gear for a DNAT in a grow box
The easiest thing to do is to choose a socket. You will need a ceramic E40 lamp socket for large lamps (those popularly called "Goliaths"). These sockets are suitable for light sources that operate at 2700-6500 K - the range for lamps with the white to yellow glow that cannabis likes. You can find such bases in a usual store with lighting equipment, but it is more convenient to order them from us together with other accessories for DNAT in Kharkov, namely:
- IUI - pulse-ignition device. Its task - to create the initial "impetus" and start the system. IZU are inexpensive and suitable for ignition of lamps with different power - from 70 to 400 watts.
- Capacitor. It has a phase-compensating function, i.e. it "balances" the reactive power, reducing the load on the protection device. Some people build a circuit without it, but this is only justified if you want to see how the wire joints melt or the plugs blow out. You can protect your lighting system with capacitors for 70, 150, 250 and 400 watt bulbs.
- A capacitor is a filter that maintains the charge in the light source. In addition, it blocks sudden voltage spikes and therefore protects the sodium lamp from premature failure.
Also, it is highly recommended that you do not twist the wires by hand but rather get a terminal block. This allows you to connect all the components in a single chain quickly and safely.
Why it's always a good idea to buy a component for a DNAT.
The spectrum of most sodium lamps is shifted to the yellow-red area. This type of lighting pleases mature plants that are ready to move into the flowering stage. Sodium lamps are durable, efficient and very versatile. Today you can find not only the classic spectrum with a temperature of 6000 K, but also other lighting elements with cooler light. That is why DNAT and its components will not give way to LEDs and other types of lighting very soon.
