And that's all without producing any noise too! Quite simply, you're looking at the most cost effective means of running a light!

Hi there, (this may be a silly question) but can i change the percentage of the wattage being use on the ballast?
The Proxima Ballasts are not dimmable, you would need to use either the Exolux Pro Dimmable Digital Ballast, or the Lumatek Dimmable Digital Ballasts.
Hi, will this ballast run both mh and hps bulbs? Also is it a magnetic ballast and how hot does it get? Kind regards
These ballasts will run both Metal Halide & HPS bulbs, you need to use the same rated bulb ie 600W bulb with 600W ballast. The Proxima ballast is magnetic, it will get warm during operation, but not too hot.
in general can you put a 400w lamp in a 600w (ballast/cool shade) setup. also, which type of ballast does support the phillips greenpower 600w full spectrum lamp......would a 6oow proxima ballast be compatable.
We would stongly recommend only using ballasts & bulbs of the same wattage rating, using mismatched equipment will result in a failure. I would recommend using the Phillips Greenpower in any magnetic 600W ballast, it will work well with the Proxima.
Hey there, would this ballast be capable of running a Retro White CMH? And as i've just found out about this bulb, do you think it's a good idea to use a CMH?
We believe that these lamps will work, as Phillips state that they run on standard HPS ballasts, but we haven't tested these lamps.
