Powerstar Contactor - High Power Ultra Reliable Power Contactors
The majority of growers choose High Intensity Discharge lighting (HID) in their grow rooms. HID lighting is the most effective form of lighting for horticultural use, sodium and metal halide lamps are most commonly used and are of the HID variety. HID lamps require large amounts of power in order to start the bulb to light.
This can be up to twice the normal running power and may increase as the lamp gets older.
(All Powerstar’s have 1m cable for the sockets & plugs.)
Ecotechnics are pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of the new Powerstar Pro Contactor with 2 way and 4 way versions.
Building upon the success of the Ecotechnics PowerStar Pro Contactor, this new compact design brings you all the advantages of the PowerStar pro in a slimmer case with 2 way and 4 way socket options.High Power, reliable Power Contactor with built in timer available in:
- 2 way [2 sockets with 1m cable for socket and plug]
- 4 way [4 sockets with 1m cable for socket and plug]
- 6 way [6 sockets with 1m cable for sockets and plugs]
- 8 way [8 sockets with 1m cable for sockets and plugs]
Powerstar Pro’s are available with either a standard timer or the option of a Grasslin timer.
Many novice growers tend to use a 24 Hour timer found in their local DIY shop to set the day length in their growroom. This type of 24 Hour timer is not designed to allow the high current switching you need with HID lighting and so they normally fail very quickly when used with such HID lighting loads.
PowerStar Pro Contactors have high power relays to pass the power to the lighting system, so the timer is only used for control
The timer on the PowerStar Pro can be set in 15 minute intervals allowing you to control your lighting with confidence.Full 3 year warranty
