Powerplant Heavy Duty Grow Light Timer
Unlike standard, household light timers, Powerplant heavy duty timers are built to handle higher inductive loads that are produced by HID grow light ballasts. We cannot stress enough, please don’t try and cut corners using cheaper light timers! If you use a household light timer with a HID ballast the contacts inside will overheat and weld together, breaking the timer and leaving your grow lights permanently on with a risk of fire.
How it works
The Powerplant heavy duty light timer has no problem dealing with the inductive loads produced by a 600w ballast due to it’s built in contactor. This means that no separate contactor is required, saving you your hard earned money. Powerplant heavy duty light timers are equipped with 96 switching operations, each controlling 15 minute sections giving you complete control within a 24 hour period. Perfect for timing your 600w HID grow light ballasts. Suitable for both magnetic or digital, is very reliable and has a high quality timer unit. Robust design casing with socket and timer dust/moisture covers protects both the socket and your grow light. Do not use more than one 600w ballast per timer.
