Gavita describes these fixtures based on their voltage options as either Residential , Professional or Industrial
Gavitas residential voltage fixtures offer flexible installation (120-240V). Choose an e-series control interface, a manual switch — or both
Designed especially for grow rooms, our professional fixtures suit flexible and fixed installations. They are compact and come with a Repeater Bus interface (no manual control). For 208V three-phase or 240V.
Perfect for the rigors of industrial environments, these fixtures feature a Repeater Bus control interface (no manual control) or fixed output. For 277-347V three-phase.
Only 7.3 inches high makes the ‘Slim Line’ the shortest 240V Gavita fixture ever. The Gavita Slim Line series is part of the 'professional' line of fixtures. Designed especially for grow rooms, our professional fixtures suit flexible and fixed installations. They are compact and come with a Repeater Bus interface. For 208V three-phase or 240V. The reduced height makes this the fixture of choice for low rooms.
The compact complete fixture contains a lamp, HR96 reflector and horticultural quality ballast in one comprehensive package. The higher output and added efficiency of the industry-standard HR96 reflector make this the workhorse of the family.
The reflector is replaceable (Gavita recommends to do this every 1-2 years) and there is a choice of replacement reflectors
The HR96 reflector is made of a very high grade Miro aluminum with 95% efficiency, which provides optimal reflectance of light to your crop. The shape of this reflector may look as a deep reflector, but it actually gives you a medium wide beam angle of about 135 degrees. Reflector dimensions: 20.1" (length) x 9.6" (width) x 7.6" (height)
This reflector is for Gavita Pro line and Hortistar and is easy to install. Designed for uniformity. Made from MIRO® aluminum. Reflector dimensions: 11.8" (length) x 10" (width) x 4" (height)
This reflector is for Gavita Pro line and is easy to install. Designed for uniformity. Made from MIRO® aluminum. Reflector dimensions: 12" (length) x 11" (width) x 4.9" (height)
The spread of the Pro 1000 equipped with the HR96 DE reflector is about 4x6 ft. (110x180 cm) at 3.5 ft. distance in overlapping plans, providing light levels of up to 1000 µmol/s/m2 per second per meter squared.
The fixtures light source is a Gavita Pro Plus 1000 Watt double ended HPS lamp, generating 2100 µmol/s of light. With a light maintenance of over 96% per 5,000 hours you only need to replace it once a year.
Note: Minimum recommended hanging distance is 1 meter
The fixtures light source is a Gavita Pro Plus 1000W DE HPS Lamp.
This beast generates 2,100 µmol/s of light and with light maintenance of over 96% per 5000 hours you only need to replace it once a year.
Gavita Pro Plus 1000W EL Double-Ended 400 V lamp is one of the best 1000 watt HPS lamps on the market. Specifically designed for high-frequency electronic ballasts, it has a connection at each side of the lamp, removing the need for a frame wire inside the lamp. For use with Gavita fixtures only.
The jacket of this double ended lamp is made from quartz glass. Do not handle with bare hands. Oil from your hands can damage the lamp.
Warranty applies only if these lamps are operated with a Gavita Pro series ballast.
When lighting plants, the distance to crop a crucial factor. The right distance gives you the desired light levels and optimal uniformity. In rooms with a low ceiling or retrofits every inch matters. By optimizing the fixture for professional grows, we were able to create a ballast measuring only 7.3 inches high without compromising quality or cooling efficacy.
The Gavita SL2 features an easy-to-use dimming knob that allows you to adjust the intensity of your fixture without the need for a Gavita EL Controller (sold separately). Dimmable range allows you to choose from 600 W, 660 W, 750 W, 825 W, 1000 W and 1150 W.
Our e-series ballasts can be remote-controlled by our Gavita Master Controllers. They replace your timers and contactors and put you in full control of your ballasts. You can centrally adjust the output of your ballasts, even with sunrise and sunset settings.
Moreover they protect your crop by two temperature safety features:
The fixture is balanced, so it can be mounted by just two hanging points. This enables much easier installation by brackets from C-profiles for example.
Unlike magnetic ballasts our electronic ballasts never use more power than their specified power during the start-up sequence. Lamps reach their full power much quicker than with a magnetic ballast.
The SL2 has improved thermal management thanks to its new design. Our ballasts are completely sealed and passively cooled through the extrusion aluminum ballast housing. Our housings provide optimized thermal management, which keeps the electronics much cooler than in die-cast housings. Good thermal management is extremely important for the lifetime and reliability of electronics.
The integration of ballast and reflector results in a compact fixture. No external lamp wires results in low EMI, which makes it easier to comply with FCC regulations. All our fixtures are FCC compliant.
Gavita developed the Repeater Bus interface for fixed installations in professional environments. The Gavita difference is the double-port connector on the ballast. The active interface repeats the input signal to the output. This setup lets you directly daisy chain 100 fixtures per string and five strings per controller port to connect a maximum of 500 fixtures per controller port.
The e-series fixtures are constantly connected to your mains supply, just like a television that is on stand-by. Because of that it never creates a high inrush power when switching on. You can fire-up all your lamps safely.
Our Double ended HPS lamps are the most efficient HPS lamps available. Double-ended lamps have the advantage that they are always in the focal point of the reflector, there is no frame wire in the lamp which results in less light interception, and the lamp is very small in diameter which prevents reflected light to be intercepted by the lamp in the reflector.
The Status LED provides information about the operating status of the ballast. It senses connection with the controller, indicates a starting lamp, end of life, over temperature, too high input voltage, too low input voltage and it even has a memory for alarms.
Our bracket is designed to be able to change you reflector quickly. Miro aluminum can not easily be cleaned, and when you clean it, it will never be as good as a new reflector. We recommend to change reflectors every year in a “dirty” environment (dust, foggers, sprays) or every two years in a clean environment.
There is no such thing as a universal ballast. You will get the optimal output when you match a lamp and ballast which are designed for each other. Our ballasts are designed to power our horticultural double-ended lamps at exactly the right high frequency and power for optimal and stable output, and long light maintenance. Our ballasts are only suitable for high-frequency HPS lamps as specified in the product manual.
Grow light controllers automate large indoor gardens and commercial greenhouses, by setting the grow lights on specific time intervals. A common complaint of growers is spending too much time in the garden, and grow room light controllers and timers alleviate this issue.
These Gavita fixtures are designed for external control and the new Gavita Pro line e-series are improved models and are suitable for central control with the Gavita Master lighting controller.
Now you can have complete lighting control at your fingertips.
