Grower's Choice Master Pursuit DE 1000W
Horticultural Lighting Fixture
Grower’s Choice proven Double End fixture technology has been enhanced, upgraded, and engineered for even better reliability, performance, efficiency and overall function your garden will appreciate.
The new reflector design promotes optimal cross lighting and PPFD. The new horizontal fixture case and reflector have been redesigned for better heat redistribution to keep your fixtures nice and cool.
The Master Pursuit 1000w DE includes a built-in level for proper mounting and a safety device, lamp catch, has been installed to prevent damage to your garden in the event the lamp becomes dislodged due to improper install or accident.
The MP 1000w DE fixture now includes Grower’s Choice new 1200w Super HPS DE lamp that utilizes your fixtures full energy output, designed to perform in fixtures running on “boost mode”, providing the highest levels of par with the greatest efficiency leading to better harvests.
The other fixtures in the Master Pursuit collection are:
Unbeatable Yields & Unmatched Quality
Grower's Choice Master Pursuit 1000W covers all your lighting needs. These fixtures come shipped with your choice of bulb for the spectrum of light that you require. Available in 4 color temperatures.
2K - 1000W
4K - 1000W
6K - 1000W
10K - 1000W
2K DE HPS: Flowering Phase
Grower’s Choice proven and reliable 2K DE lamps provide high intensity par spectrum where it matters most in you bloom phase, in the 525-680 nm range with 2100 umol/s photon flux output. In addition to the intense yellow, orange and red spectrum this lamp emits a hint of blue, green and UV spectrum for additional par diversity promoting a high yielding, high quality harvest.
4K DE MH: Full Phase
Grower’s Choice 4k DE lamp is a versatile lamp with the ability to carry your garden from veg to bloom if you are looking for a general-purpose lamp. The GC 4K DE lamp performs best as a vegetative lamp and supplemental lighting with HPS lamps to enrich the par spectrum for larger and higher quality yields.
6K DE MH: Vegetative Phase
Grower’s Choice 6K DE lamp is the best option when choosing a quality lamp designed for vegetative growth. With a diversified spectrum peaking in the par spectrum where it matters most providing the blues, yellows, reds, UV and even a bit of green that growers once thought wasn’t useful but is necessary for optimal plant growth.
10K DE MH: Finishing
The Grower's Choice 10K bulb is for growers who are looking to maximize yield and resin production, making it suitable for the last 7-14 days of flowering. The 10K contains UV-B light, which is widely known to increase resin production, as the plant forms its own kind of "sunscreen" to protect itself from the ultraviolet light.
1200W DE Super HPS: Ultimate Flowering Phase
Recommended for experienced cultivators looking for the Ultimate option in double end lamp technology, the GC 1200w DE Super HPS was engineered for commercial cultivators who want to utilize the “boost mode” on their 1000w fixture. Standard double end lamps run at 1150-1200 watts are put through high levels of stress, immediately losing efficiency and degrading faster leading to higher utility costs and more frequent lamp replacement.
Grower’s Choice 1200w DE Super HPS lamps eliminate this issue using a Phillips arch tube and GC technology to produce a high output, high efficiency, reliable and long-lasting lamp that will release the potential of your 1000w de fixtures, increasing the yield and quality of your commercial garden.
The Master Pursuit line utilizes an updated horizontal case to reflector design which accommodates more canopy space.
This new case design is reinforced to protect the fixtures internal components and employs heat sinks with greater surface area, translating to better heat distribution, providing further protection, longer fixture life and better efficiency performance.
- Clips: Improved ceramic lamp clips keep lamps secure, last longer than plastic clips and redistribute heat better.
- Lamp Catch: Innovative safety device prevents damage due to dislodged or improperly installed lamps.
- Level: Integrated bubble level provides a visual reference to verify horizontal mounting consistency.
- Reflector: Redesigned reflector provides greater heat redistribution, improves cross lighting and PPFD.
- Cords: Uses quality hard wired power cords with M25 connectors provide IP65 water resistance.
- Dual Ports: Two receptacles for the master controller eliminate the need for split devices or adapters.
Features & Benefits
AI Ignition Control
This revolutionary feature, unique to our products, makes GC Series Digital Ballast the safest and most reliable ballast when used in automated multiple lamp applications. When multiple units are connected to the same mains circuit, our integrated Ignition Control software will completely balance the electrical draw by igniting one lamp at a time to prevent electrical surges and spikes that can overload the mains circuit and trip circuit breaking systems. For further efficiency, this feature is activated alongside our 'Soft Start Technology'.
Soft Start Technology
Soft Start Technology prolongs lamp life by stopping current rush to the lamp and preventing lamp overload. When the ballast is started from cold there will be a 3 second fixed delay before ignition. After ignition there will be a series of random 0-2 second delays before full brightness is reached after approximately 3-5 minutes. SoftStart Technology is also activated when increasing and decreasing power to the lamp using the 'Smart-Step' feature.
Re-Strike of Hot Lamp after Mains Failure
The GC Series Digital Ballast uses a timed re-strike system that prevents the ballast from re-striking a hot lamp after a power failure. If a hot lamp is detected, the re-strike will be delayed for 60 second intervals until the lamp has cooled sufficiently to be re-ignited. Re-ignition is then controlled by 'SmartStart Ignition Control' and 'Soft Start Technology' software.
The GC Series Digital Ballast is suitable for use with all good quality HPS, Metal Halide and Ceramic Metal Halide lamps. For a guaranteed perfect match and the best results we recommend Grower’s Choice horticultural lamps. Grower’s Choice lamps are optimized for use with high efficiency electronic ballasts with adjustable output.
Full Circuit Protection
The GC Series Digital Ballast uses a sophisticated software controlled circuit breaking system that is not seen in other manufacturer's ballasts. The system protects against a series of faults including: Open Circuit Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Over Voltage Protection, Under Voltage Protection and Over Temperature Protection. On Ignition the ballast performs a 3 second test of the circuit and in the event of a fault the ballast will go into protection mode to avoid damage to the ballast and lamp.
High Energy Efficiency
The GC Series Digital Ballast is up to 30% more efficient than standard magnetic ballast producing more lumens of light per watt of consumed energy. Efficiency does not diminish and is maintained for the entire life of the unit.
Automatic Frequency Adjustment
The GC Series Digital Ballast automatically adjusts its output frequency to maintain a constant output regardless of input power fluctuations and ageing lamps. This also prevents 'lamp flicker'.
The GC Series Digital Ballasts' unique case design acts as a superior heat sink making the ballast extremely cool running without the need for internal fans.
The GC Series Digital Ballast has superior RF Shielding with Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 10% meaning it will not interfere with television or radio equipment.
The GC Series Digital Ballast has no noisy internal fans and is completely silent in operation. You'll be able to hear how happy your plants sounnd with how quiet this fixture is.
