Gavita 315 Watt SE CMH
The 315 Watt Fixture
The Gavita Pro 315e SE is the fixture of choice for small installations or supplemental use. This compact fixture features a new kind of reflector mounting system. The reflector is directly clipped to the ballast housing. The results are reduced size and weight, easy replacement and optimal reflector positioning and housing.
This fixture is a smaller version of the Gavita Pro 630e CMH which uses (x2) 315 Watt SE bulbs instead of 1
You can use all Gavita CMH fixtures with the Gavita Master Controller
The Pro 315e falls under Gavitas Professional category as its voltage range extends from 208 - 240 Volts.
315W CMH lamps are the most efficient Metal Halide lamps on the market. For these lamps, Gavita developed a new series of fixtures and reflectors for the rigors of professional use. Fixtures available with 3,100 Kelvin lamps (for flowering) or 4,200 Kelvin lamps (for vegetative or supplemental use).
- Designed for 315W CMH Lamps
- Available with 930 or 942 Lamp
- Fully sealed housing with Gore-Tex plugs
- External control with Repeater Bus Inteface
- Mounting brackets for Unistrut/c-profiles available
Features & Benefits
The integration of ballast and reflector results in a compact fixture. No external lamp wires result in low EMI, which makes the fixture compliant with FCC regulations. All CMH fixtures are FCC tested and compliant.
The fixture is balanced, so it can be mounted by just two hanging points. This enables easy installation by brackets from C-profiles for example.
No moving parts, optimal thermal management
Our ballasts are completely sealed and passively cooled through the aluminum housing. The optimized thermal management keeps the electronics much cooler than in die-cast housings. This extremely important for the lifetime and reliability of the internal electronics
Ideal for fixed installation
Ideal for fixed installation with brackets on Unistrut (C profile) systems, the Repeater Bus cabling system allows you to daisy-chain the fixtures in your installation. A Repeater Bus interconnect cable is included with every fixture. You can connect 5 strings of 100 fixtures per Master controller port. This enables you to control up to 1000 fixtures on one EL2 controller.
Reflector - M 140 SE CDM 315
This reflector is made of Miro® aluminum which provides optimal reflectance to your crop. This compact reflector (medium, 140 degrees beam angle, for 315e SE CMH fixtures) is a reflector optimized for stand-alone use.
Available with 930 Agro or 942 lamp
The Gavita 315e SE is available with 315 watt 3,100K Lamps for flowering or 4,200K Lamps for vegetative or supplemental lighting.
These Philips lamps feature superior color quality and very crisp white light. Incredibly high 1.95 PPF (photosynthetic photon flux) per watt per second light source.
High 90% lumen maintenance at 8,000 hr/high 85% maintenance at 20,000 hr.

Spectrum - 3,100K vs 4,200K
3,100K and 4,200K CMH lamps both emit a spectrum capable for growing plants full-cycle (veg through flower). The 3100K lamp is biased towards the red wavelength (ideal for flowering), and the 4200K lamp is biased towards the blue wavelength (ideal for vegetative growth), however both offer a wide enough spectrum for the full-cycle of a plants life.
Suitable for Gavita Master Controllers
Our CMH ballasts ballasts can be remote controlled by our Gavita Master Controllers. CMH lamps can not be dimmed without deterioration of the light maintenance over time, and restart problems. However, the Repeater Bus interface enables timing control and safety features with the Gavita Master controller.
With this you can also integrate the fixture as a supplement light to a HPS layout.
You can connect 5 strings of 100 fixtures per Master controller port. This enables you to control up to 1000 fixtures on one EL2 controller.
Now you can have complete lighting control at your fingertips.

Gavita Pro 315e SE CMH Grow Light Reviews
- Best growth I have seen in my growing career
This light has helped my garden get the top shelf in most dispensaries in OK. I cant believe how frosty my plants are with intense smells and higher yields over my 600w HPS set up I used in the past.
