315w Philips MASTERColour CDM Elite (Blue) lamp
The 315w Philips MASTERColour CDM Elite (Blue) lamp has a lumen output of 36000 all of which is in the blue part of the spectrum making them ideal for vegetative growth creating plants with shorter internodes setting them on a course to heavy yields.
The Philips 315w lamp is a special lamp because of its exceptionally high PAR output and its extra long life (20000 hrs.) the intensity of this lamp is noticeably brighter than HPS equivalents. The near Daylight colour spectrum given by this lamp will produce high yielding and healthy plants because plants have evolved with the broad spectrum of light wavelengths provided by natural sunlight.
With traditional HPS and Metal Halide lighting, red and blue wavelengths are enhanced to promote different growth stages such as vegetative and flowering. While this is beneficial, plants were grown under a full spectrum throughout their growth cycle benefit from a more natural quality of light proven to prevent stretching and encourage higher quality growth.
The Daylight spectrum also allows a more natural formation of branch internodes (less far apart) for increased plant mass. Horticultural lamp light output will decrease with use. We recommend that growers replace lamps at regular intervals to maintain optimum yields. Note – As soon as lamps are switched on they will run extremely hot. Before handling, lights should be switched off the ballast disconnected and allowed to cool down. All high-intensity lamps need to be handled with care, avoid touching the lamp and particular, care should be taken when using sprays or liquids around hot lamps as this may cause failure or explosion.
