CMH-860W low frequency, square wave knob dimming digital ballast, built in Fuzzy Logic technology, can keep lumen maintenance rate higher than 95% at 30,000 hours and maintain the initial spectrum. It can ignite bulbs more than 100 feet away. With LamPal® technology, this ballast can work with 1000W, 860W, 775W and 630W CMH/HPS/MH DE/SE bulbs. With the dimming knob, you can turn on/off the light and decrease a 860W lamp to 775W, 630W and boost it to 1000W. You can use a 630W DE lamp and increase power to 775W or use a 1000W lamp to decrease power to 860W, 775W and 630W.
When lamp power is decreased, it saves energy and shifts light spectrum to more blue light for veggies; when lamp power is increased, it outputs more strong light and shifts light spectrum to more red light to grow more and bigger flowers and shorten the growing circle.

- CMH-860W digital ballast should work on operating voltage with corresponding bulbs. High power bulb can be used to dim to low power output. If you need to increase the power of low power bulb, you should install the lamp in a closed hood.
- The work environment temperature for the ballast ranges from -40 F°/-40 C° to +122 F°/+50 C°, the maximum work temperature of its shell can be +158 F°/+70 C°.
- The ballast should avoid working under high temperature environment which will affect its service life.
- If the ballast is damaged, it cannot be opened. Users should exchange it with suppliers or send it to the factory for maintenance.
