The Grower’s Choice GC1000 DE CMH kit includes the company’s Master Pursuit 1000 watt Ultra High Frequency digital double ended fixture designed specifically for commercial applications.

The GC1000 utilizes advanced Ultra High frequency technology and works with CMH, HPS and MH grow lamps.

This kit includes the ballast and reflector, plus a bulb of your choice (please select above, directly beneath the price).

  • GC 1000w 3K: ideal for flowering, but work for vegging also (more info)
  • GC 1000w 4K: closest bulb to natural sunlight; great for all growth stages (more info)

Grower's Choice DE 1000 Watt CMH Kit Features

Note: the input voltage for this fixture is 208 to 347 V.

The Master Pursuit line uses an updated horizontal case reflector design which gives a larger and more even coverage. This new case design is reinforced to protect the fixture's internal components.

It also uses heat sinks with greater surface area, translating to better heat distribution, longer fixture life and a more efficient performance. Here are some further improvements:

  • Clips: Improved ceramic lamp clips keep lamps secure, last longer than plastic clips and redistribute heat better.
  • Lamp Catch: Innovative safety device prevents damage due to dislodged or improperly installed lamps.
  • Level: Integrated bubble level provides a visual reference to verify horizontal mounting consistency.
  • Reflector: Redesigned reflector provides greater heat redistribution, improves cross lighting and PPFD.
  • Cords: Uses quality hard wired power cords with M25 connectors provide IP65 water resistance.
  • Dual Ports: Two receptacles for the master controller eliminate the need for split devices or adapters.

AI Ignition Control

This revolutionary feature, unique to Grower's Choice products, makes the GC Series Digital Ballast the safest and most reliable ballast when used in automated multiple lamp applications.

When multiple units are connected to the same mains circuit, the integrated Ignition Control software will completely balance the electrical draw by igniting one lamp at a time to prevent electrical surges and spikes that can overload the mains circuit and trip circuit breaking systems. For further efficiency, this feature is activated alongside 'Soft Start Technology'.

Soft Start Technology

Soft Start Technology prolongs lamp life by stopping current rush to the lamp and preventing lamp overload. When the ballast is started from cold there will be a 3 second fixed delay before ignition.

After ignition there will be a series of random 0-2 second delays before full brightness is reached after approximately 3-5 minutes. SoftStart Technology is also activated when increasing and decreasing power to the lamp using the 'Smart-Step' feature.

Re-Strike of Hot Lamp after Mains Failure

The GC Series Digital Ballast uses a timed re-strike system that prevents the ballast from re-striking a hot lamp after a power failure. If a hot lamp is detected, the re-strike will be delayed for 60 second intervals until the lamp has cooled sufficiently to be re-ignited. Re-ignition is then controlled by 'SmartStart Ignition Control' and 'Soft Start Technology' software.

Lamp Compatibility

The GC Series Digital Ballast is suitable for use with all good quality HPS, Metal Halide and Ceramic Metal Halide lamps. For a guaranteed perfect match and the best results, we recommend Grower’s Choice horticultural lamps.

Grower’s Choice lamps are optimized for use with high efficiency electronic ballasts with adjustable output. One of these lamps is included with this kit. You have the choice of a 3000K or 4000K bulb.

High Energy Efficiency

The GC Series Digital Ballast is up to 30% more efficient than standard magnetic ballasts, producing more lumens of light per watt of consumed energy. Efficiency does not diminish and is maintained for the entire life of the unit.

Automatic Frequency Adjustment

The GC Series Digital Ballast automatically adjusts its output frequency to maintain a constant output regardless of input power fluctuations and ageing lamps. This also prevents 'lamp flicker'.

Full Circuit Protection

The GC Series Digital Ballast uses a sophisticated software controlled circuit breaking system that is not seen in other manufacturers' ballasts. The system protects against a series of faults including: Open Circuit Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Over Voltage Protection, Under Voltage Protection and Over Temperature Protection.

On Ignition the ballast performs a 3 second test of the circuit and in the event of a fault the ballast will go into protection mode to avoid damage to the ballast and lamp.

Running Temperature

The GC Series Digital Ballasts' unique case design acts as a superior heat sink keeping the ballast cool without the need for internal fans.

RF Shielding

The GC Series Digital Ballast has superior RF Shielding with Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 10%, meaning it will not interfere with television or radio equipment.

Silent Operation

The GC Series Digital Ballast has no noisy internal fans and is completely silent in operation.
