Overview

Time to replace?


Every 1% loss in light results in a 1% loss in yield.


Your Gavita lamp loses 5% of light after a year – that’s a 5% loss in yield.


To maximise your yield – replace your lamp every year.


For a like to like match, opt for the Gavita Pro Plus 1000W lamp. It produces tons of plant usable light (2,100 μmol!) and is the one originally supplied with your Gavita lighting system.


About the Lamps


Get a powerful, even spread of light with a 400V, 1000W Gavita Pro Plus lamp.


Each lamp has a jaw dropping output of 2,100 micromoles. You won’t believe how bright they are!


You get more plant usable light, a wider light spectrum, and accurate colour rendering, thanks to the incredible 400V frequency … the quality of light is phenomenal!


Lamps are double ended - you get an incredibly even burn and you can position them precisely.


As for the glass, it’s not just any old glass – it’s a remarkably clear quartz glass – allowing maximum light to pass through it.


To ensure no light is blocked and to prevent shadows, there’s no wire frame running through your bulb, either!


You really won’t find a lamp like this anywhere else. If you’ve already gone Gavita you know just what we mean.


1000W high frequency horticultural lamp
• Up to 8% more grow light
Life expectancy of 5,000 hrs
• Exceptional light maintenance of 95% after a year
Double ended: Accurate lamp positioning + uniform intensity
• Exceptionally high output: 2100 μmol 
No wire frameno shadow
Quartz glass outer bulb for perfect photosensitive quality
• Use with high frequency, 400V electronic ballasts (Gavita Pro series)
3 year warranty on Gavita products


We recommend


Don’t try powering them from an ordinary 230V ballast – use them with a Gavita lighting system or another compatible 400V system!


How do you Measure Light Output?


People used to just count lumens. Don’t do that.


Lumens tell you how intense a light is (1 lumen = 1 candle). This doesn’t tell you much about grow lights.


You’re better off going by a lamp’s micromole reading.


This is because plants can only use certain wavelengths of light for growth (400nm – 700nm). These wavelengths are known as the PAR range.


Micromoles tell you how many particles of light (photons) from the PAR range are emitted by your lamp per second.


1 micromole = µmol is 602 quadrillion particles of plant usable light (photons)!


Look at those numbers! If you’re wondering whether to buy the Gavita Pro Plus 1000W lamp, it’s a no brainer!

The Science

How Often Should You Replace Lamps?


When it’s costing you more not to.


Loss in light is directly proportional to loss in yield. Every 1% loss in light results in a 1% loss in yield.


Regularly replacing your lamps is one of the quickest & cheapest ways of getting a consistently high yield.


Your Gavita lamp loses 5% of light after a year – that’s a 5% loss in yield.


To maximise your yield, replace your Gavita lamps every year.


What Wavelengths can be used by Plants?


For growth, plants can only use wavelengths of light between 400nm – 700nm. These wavelengths are known as the PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) range.


To get an accurate measure of how good a grow light is, you need to find out what your light’s PPF (photosynthetic photon flux).


Your PPF reading will tell you how many how many particles of light (photons) from the PAR range are emitted by your lamp per second, measured in micromoles.


What are micromoles (µmol)?


Micromoles tell you how many particles of light (photons) from the PAR range are emitted by your lamp per second.


Your micromole count is known as your photosynthetic photon flux (PPF).


1 micromole = µmol is 602 quadrillion particles of light (photons)!


• Gavita Pro Plus 1000W Lamp = 1,264,200 particles of light


That’s a big difference (per second!)


Remember that Gavita lamps also emit light from outside the PAR range that can be used by your plants… just not for growth.


What about wavelengths outside the PAR range?


Light outside the PAR range can’t be used for growth, but it has other benefits.


UV-A & UV-B, for instance, are known to:


• Boost pest resistance
• Enhance medicinal /anti-oxidative properties
• Improve taste & aroma


However, most standard HPS lights don’t emit much UV-A & UV-B. To really get the benefits of a wider spectrum, use a Gavita supplemental LEP (Plasma) grow light.
