Grow Light Reflector Cords and Sockets

There are two main types of reflector cord socket types used on HID lighting fixtures, "standard" and the proprietary "Hydrofarm" type.

Grow Light Reflector Cords and Sockets


There are two common types of reflector cords used on HID grow lighting fixtures, "standard" and the proprietary "Hydrofarm" type. The two plug types are not compatible unless an adapter is used. If you are purchasing a new ballast or reflector, be sure to review what plug type each uses so you can ensure fitment.

 

Standard Reflector Cords

This is the most common reflector plug type used on ballasts and reflectors from Sun System, Solis Tek, Powerbox or any other brand that has this same plug layout as shown below:

Hydrofarm Reflector Cords

The proprietary Hydrofram plug type is used on ballasts and reflectors from Phantom, Raptor, Xtrasun or any other brand that has this same plug layout as shown below:

Reflector Cord Adapters

If you have a ballast of one plug type and a reflector of the other, adapters are available at Hydrobuilder.com. You should not lose any performance by using an adapter and they are a simple way to solve this issue at about $10. View all of the reflector cord adapters here.

Solis Tek has created a digital splitter to allow one 1000 watt ballast to have two outputs and control two lower wattage lights for more even coverage or full spectrum coverage.
