SOLIS TEK MATRIX Digital Ballast


SOLIS TEK MATRIX is a multi-Wattage ballast. It will operate 400W, 600W & 1000W lamps from the one ballast with the corresponding power savings. This gives the grower the flexibilty to operate any type of lamp of any Wattage or be able to dim larger Wattage lamps. For example a 400 or 600 Watt lamp could be used for the vegetative cycle then changed to a 1000 Watt lamp for flowering. The same 1000 Watt lamp could be dimmed to 600 Watt or 400 Watt during times of high heat or when doing maintenance on your garden. When used with Solis Tek High Frequency Digital Lamps the Matrix ballast will operate at 0% THD. A perfect matched set.

Ignition Control™ –  Sequential Lamp Ignition Technology -
The only ballast(s) that will ignite your lamps sequentially, one at a time, with soft start technology for true efficiency.  This revolutionary safety feature prevents surges and spikes in your electrical circuit and prevents breakers from overloading.  Whether you are powering up 10 or 100 Solis-Tek Ballasts, the electrical draw is controlled by our internal software for maximizing your electrical efficiency.

This is especially important for automated systems to protect against inconsistency in lighting schedules.

SenseSmart™ Technology - Pre-Ignition System Diagnostic –  Solis-Tek ballasts will not ignite without a complete and proper connection.  The ballast conducts a 3 second test of the connection circuit.  If the circuit is incomplete ignition will be prevented in order to protect the lamp.

Solis Tek ballasts will not try to fire a hot lamp, a signal is sent to the lamp & when the lamp has sufficiently cooled the lamp will fire. The ST Matrix ballast is fitted with a back up battery that will remember grow/bloom schedules for six hours in the case of a power failure.

If a short blackout occurs, ST Matrix will wait till the lamp has sufficiently cooled before re-starting and the backup battery will continue with programmed grow/bloom schedule. This feature is invaluable as the grower cannot always be there to manually control their garden.

SolisBoost Overdrive: Contrary to industry standards, SolisBoost will only overdrive the lamp 5% more.  We fine tuned the overdrive in order to prolong the life of the lamp and increase overall efficiency. H.I.D. lamps were not designed to run @ 10% overdrive. Running a 600W lamp @ 660W will significantly decrease the life of the lamp. 5% overdrive is kinder to the lamp, however we recommend that lamps should be run at their rated Wattage.
